Friday, March 28, 2008 at Level 3 in Hollywood, California: three UCLA bands and three USC bands went head-to-head at Rock Out Rivalry II. Let’s not forget last year’s winner and USA4real’s December 2007 Featured Artist Rejn (USC) headlined. Seven bands in all and like most battles, rivalries bleed their school colors to the bone; traditionally only one winner walks away victorious. Despite the great performances by all the bands, this night was no different. This year’s winner comes from the blue and gold variety, out of UCLA. The Rock Out Rivalry II winner is…Escaping Zane! In the very posh neighborhood of Westwood, a band comprised of four members united at one of the most gorgeous campuses in the universe. Each band member came from random places on the planet, Baltimore, Trinidad, LA, and Sweden. Certainly a non-typical, only-in-LA scenario, needless to say their path was the same. As many artists have different journeys, the road leads to the same place. Most find a way to come to LA searching for success in their chosen art form. Escaping Zane found the beginnings of glory last Friday night at Level3. Todd sings amazing vocals and so does Gold while providing some very exciting punk alternative guitar riffs. A sexy bassist never hurts either; Lucia fills the role well as she shreds sick bass lines to the rhythm of Pierre’s aggressive drumming. A strong turnout from UCLA and crowd participation sure helped, not just talent alone could win this battle. The overall total package had to have been the deciding factor says the judge from LIVE Nation. "I really liked the Petes from a talent "it" factor perspective, but Escaping Zane had the total package to win this competition which is what it takes to make it in this business." -Matt Thomas Four unique cultures band together to win Rock Out Rivalry II. So - well deserved, "Escaping Zane is USA4real’s April 2008 Artist of the Month." The Bruins won this year’s competition — Go Zane! -Luke Wryder - LA4REAL BATTLE OF THE BANDS

Song: "Bury Me First"

Blew me away!!!
Okay, I would expect to hear this on the radio and would love it!! Serious hook from the very beginning, love the verses. Nice bridge, I liked the rhythm change and stops, great harmonies, it all flows very well, with stops, rhythm changes, etc., very well done, I'd buy the CD just for this song!! Excellent job.

Song: "Misery"

Merciless Hook!
I could listen to this chorus all day. Great pop-sensibility. Intense, but not aggravating, exciting, but not unmusical. Great balance of everything needed. This is as good as anything on the radio today.
