FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ARNOCORPS MAKES TRIUMPHANT RETURN TO SAN FRANTASTIC
TO HEADLINE GREATEST SHOW OF THE YEAR
After taking Great Britain in a way that Napoleon could only dream of this
past Summer, the Austrian adventure rockers ArnoCorps are now returning to
their adopted stronghold of San Frantastic for all-out assault on 12
Galaxies on Saturday November 18, 2006.
ArnoCorps have not graced the city by the bay since last June. Since then,
the band of ballsy heroes have laid waste to the hapless rock clubs of the
UK and Ireland, been praised by the BBC (a ten out of ten rating for their
show in Manchester), landed on the cover of this month's "Thrasher," and
have now found themselves embroiled in an election year controversy as they
prepare for their final appearance of the year.
"ArnoCorps has been accused of riding on the tailcoats of this Governor
Schwarzenoodle" ArnoCorps' vocalist Holzfeuer says from his Mount Diablo
training compound, "but it is that Governor of yours who is trying again to
ride on our wave of ballsy defiance and heroism, come on!"
"It is he who has seen the successes that we had in Fantastic Britain," the
towering Teuton says with a sneer, "It is he who is stealing from us, the
same way that he has stolen our great Austrian lore for Hollywood
exploitations! Thank Crom nobody knows this better than the goddamn heroes
of San Frantastic! Let's go!!!"
While ArnoCorps is more than powerful enough to go it alone at 12 Galaxies
on November 18th, they are being supported by two bands that have proven to
be every bit as ballistic as they are. Palmdale's Van Stone bring up the
middle with a leather studded, bare-chested barrage of glam-infused punk
metal, complete with a six foot stainless steel laser skull. With guitars
forged from hardest steel that double as deadly weapons, this band's power
riffage conjures up the glories of Priest in the worst way possible. Van
Stone first garnered national attention with their controversial appearances
on The Jimmy Kimmel Show, Playboy Channel and the Van's Warped Tour.
Kicking off the show with kung fu authority will be the searing success
seminar rock of Count Dante and the Black Dragon Fighting Society. While Van
Stone will be singing the praises of their native Palmdale, Dante will be
gushing with "Redwood City Rock City" pride in an explosive battle for
