I am so excited to announce that The Greatest Fear has been named the best Gothic Band of 2005 by the Rock City News. The 11th Annual Rock City News Awards Show took place at the Universal Studio's B.B. Kings December 8th
2005 and truly lived up to it's reputation as L.A.'s Premier Rock magazine event.
We are also completely ecstatic to announce that "The Coronation Of The Locust Queen" has been nominated for The Best Hard Rock/Metal Album of 2006 category for the Independent Music Awards (last year nominees for this category included Lacuna Coil and Orgy). The Independent Music Awards (IMA's) are run by the international best-selling resource magazine: The Musician's Atlas. Judges for this event include: Norah Jones, Joe Perry, Melissa Etheridge, George Clinton and Andrew W.K. as well as Industry panelists from Performing Songwriter and Billboard Magazine. Not only are we honored to have these great musicians/performers listening to our album, we are humbled to be the only representative from The United States in our category which had thousands of submissions. The Independent Music Awards has a 4.5 million customer contact promotion exclusively through Borders and has literally made the careers of past recipients. So as you can see - we have been really busy! Our tour dates have been a blast and as always you can view the incriminating tour pictures on www.myspace.com/thegreatestfear hot off the digital presses and often taken by all of you great friends of The Greatest Fear.
Love and Respect-
