O.A.R. Partners With Aderra To Offer Fans Live USB Recording Of Select “All Sides Summer Tour” Dates

July 23, 2008 – Everfine/Atlantic recording group O.A.R. have landed the highest album chart debut of their career with their sixth studio album, All Sides , grabbing the #13 spot on the Billboard 200 chart. All Sides also landed at #3 on Billboard’s Digital Album Chart as well as in the Top 10 in more than 20 major markets throughout the country, including New York, Washington D.C., Boston, and Chicago. All Sides is O.A.R.’s first new studio album since 2005’s popular breakthrough, Stories of a Stranger, which included the band’s hit singles “Love and Memories” and “Heard the World.” All Sides features the first single, “Shattered (Turn The Car Around),” which quickly became the most-added song at Hot AC and Triple A radio, while its companion video has jumped into Medium Rotation at VH1.

“We have so many people to thank for the debut of All Sides, most of all our fans for their unwavering support of our music through the years,” said O.A.R. “They make us feel as though we’re on top of the world.”

In other exciting news for the band, O.A.R. is announcing their partnership with Aderra (http://www.aderra.net/) to provide concert-goers of the band's “All Sides Summer Tour” with the chance to bring home a live recording of the show from that evening along with a copy of the band's new album, All Sides. Available at select performances beginning with the band’s July 24th concert in Chicago, the performances will be offered on a USB flash drive wristband at all venue merchandise locations.

“For us, performing live is about sharing experiences. Technology is all about convenience and being able to offer our shows on a USB flash drive? That’s all about the memories,” said Marc Roberge. “What a fantastic thing to be able to give back to our fans.”

User Review of Live in a Flash USB Wristbands

An O.A.R. fan who was at the Jones Beach Show last Saturday has written a detailed review of Aderra's Live in a Flash O.A.R. All Sides USB Wristband:

Buy a recording of the show you just enjoyed

In this author’s humble opinion, the best and most innovative use of the USB wristband is to load them with recording’s of the same night’s performance. Soundboard technicians immediately load up the tiny devices with a recording of that night’s show, letting fans purchase a copy on their way out of the venue.

Unite the United USB Wristbands - Warped Tour

By Mitchell Peters, L.A.

About two weeks into this year's 14th annual Vans Warped Tour, approximately 100 artists, crew members and sponsors will use a day off to help rebuild hurricane-torn communities in southwest Louisiana.

Between Warped stops in Houston and Atlanta, volunteers from the 46-date trek will spend July 7 building wheelchair ramps and help revamp a library, daycare and senior center in smaller towns that were destroyed in 2005 after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita hit the Gulf Coast region.

"Everybody has been focusing their efforts on the larger communities, such as New Orleans," says Laura Murphy, foundation administrator for Unite the United, which is spearheading the project in conjunction with the Volunteer Center of Southwest Louisiana.

"There are all of these little communities out there that have received little or no help from the outside," she tells Billboard. "So we're going into the small communities."

The 2008 Warped Tour launched June 20 at the Los Angeles County Fairgrounds in Pomona, Calif., and so far "we don't have any specific bands signed on" for the July 7 volunteer date in Louisiana, Murphy notes. "But we have a lot of interest."

Artists on this year's jaunt include Paramore, Gym Class Heroes, Jack's
Mannequin, Against Me!, Pennywise, Reel Big Fish, Cobra Starship, Every Time I Die, Angels and Airwaves, Pennywise, Motion City Soundtrack, Matisyahu, Chiodos, Aggrolites, As I Lay Dying and the Academy Is..., among many others.

Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman started nonprofit Unite the United in response to the devastation the hurricanes caused. The foundation was originally intended to launch with a large-scale benefit concert and silent auction.

"Unfortunately, the benefit concert never happened and we ended up with all of these things to auction off," Murphy recalls. "So we started auctioning them off on eBay and raising money from our friends and colleagues in the music and action sports industry."

In June 2006, 400 volunteers from the Warped Tour helped residents clear more than seven tons of debris from Cameron Parish in Louisiana. "It was an amazing experience for everyone out there," Murphy says. "It's really about the Warped community pulling together."
