Toronto-based hard rock outfit Saint Asonia (#4) includes members of Three Days Grace, Staind, and Finger Eleven so they know what they are doing. They have quickly hit some summer festivals, released an eponymous album on RCA Records, have a Top 10 Active Rock radio hit in Better Place, and are preparing for a fall tour with Seether.
Dallas rapper Post Malone recently inked a deal with Republic Records based on the achievements of his single, White Iverson. Just as quickly as he has found success, he has found controversy, to which he is responding with a new freestyle, #mood, over 50 Cent’s Window Shopper. He has a few live dates on the calendar but that schedule will probably fill up once his new Promotion and Tour Marketing teams kick things into gear.
