(NASHVILLE, TENN) November 7, 2007 – In September 2007, MTV2 announced KOCH/ Kosmos’ Seattle based band The Myriad as a top contender for the title of “MTV2 Dew Circuit Breakout.” Chosen out of over 4000 bands in the U.S. to be one of the 12 finalists, The Myriad quickly gained public attention and fan approval. With hundreds of thousands of votes in this week, The Myriad is currently positioned as one of the top six contenders and is headed to the next round of voting to become one of three bands that will play live on-air in New York City.
As a top 6 finalist, The Myriad will receive a visit from MTV crews in their hometown and filmed in action for segments on air! With top 6 status, The Myriad is also this week’s “heavy hitter,” acquiring the most votes for the week, earning them extra spins during commercial breaks. MTV2 has opened the online voting polls once again, where the public will determine the final three bands. Myriad fans can vote up to 100 times a day from now until November 25 at http://dewcircuitbreakout.mtv2.com/artist/default.aspx?artist=200
The Top 3 Finalists that make the cut will be flown to New York City to perform during the Dew Circuit Breakout Finale, LIVE from Times Square, where the grand prize winner will be announced. The winning band will be thrown back on stage to star in their very first MTV music video for rotation on MTV and MTV2, and will be strongly considered for MTV's Artist Of The Week. In addition, they'll grab some air time on Discover & Download and Unleashed, where the latest, most anticipated, most cutting-edge work from the biggest players in rock and hip hop premiere on MTV2.
In addition to their recent success in the Dew Circuit Breakout, the bands video "Product Placement" is currently being aired on MTV2 as their "Video of the Week." The Myriad filmed the Mountain Dew Party Video on tour from the bus with guys from The David Crowder Band and featured more than 200 Mountain Dew drinks during the video shoot. The song backing the video is "A Thousand Winters Melting" which is The Myriad’s current radio single. The Myriad released their debut EP, Prelude To Arrows, on October 9.
Drawing rave reviews from both fans and critics worldwide, The Myriad’s music covers a diverse panorama, evoking comparisons to The Verve, Radiohead and The Who. In their quick emergence, the band has already performed with Blindside, Mute Math and The Beautiful Mistake. The Myriad's first full length record, You Can't Trust a Ladder was featured as a Staff Favorite on iTunes (alongside the White Stripes and the Foo Fighters) and MTV has used songs from the record for The Real World Denver show.
Backed by a new label and armed with a hotly-anticipated new record, 2008 promises to be a landmark year for The Myriad. Their highly-anticipated 2008 project, With Arrows, With Poise, was recently mixed at Hansa Studios in Berlin, Germany by Michael Ilbert (The Cardigans, Kent, The Hives) and mastered at historic Abbey Road Studios in London, England by Adam Nunn (Air, Radiohead, Franz Ferdinand, George Martin, Mogwai). Kosmos, a division of KOCH Entertainment--the largest independent distributor of music in the world will release With Arrows, With Poise, on March 4, 2008.
Currently on a sold-out national tour with The David Crowder Band, The Myriad is made up of Jeremy Edwardson, John Roger Schofield, Steven Tracy, Jonathan Young and Randy Miller.
