I can keep going because so many people have helped us along the way and I know I’m missing many of you especially the bands, so many great artists out there and many we did not have time to review please accept our apologies.

    The release of our debut EP (Thanks to Sam McCaslin/Retrospect Records), a 9 1/2 week US Tour, and playing at the Rocklahoma festival, helped to make 2009 an amazing and groundbreaking year for the band. A warm thank you to: Brian Rademacher and for supporting us throughout!

    To all our fans/friends (old and new), label/support staff, and We promise...You aint seen nothing yet! ...yea!
    All our Love,
  • SKILLET I'm all pumped up to be named the number 1 record on’s Top 10 CD List for 2009! It means a lot that people take the time to rock out to our music. It's also awesome to be in such great company with the other groups mentioned. Thanks and keep rockin with Skillet into the new year baby!

    "A single "Thank You" is not enough especially if you get picked out of hundreds of new bands through the world and having in mind that we're actually a band that originates from Greece makes me really tell you: Efharistoume Poly!!!! Stay tuned 'cause OUTLOUD will not disappoint anyone who believed in us."
