Meg & Dia Hit the Road With The Spill Canvas in October

Debut Album "Something Real" Out Now on Doghouse Records/Warner Bros. Records

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - October 3, 2007) - Meg & Dia continue their marathon 2007 tour in support of their current album "Something Real" by hitting the road in October for a series of dates with Sire Records label-mates The Spill Canvas. The band -- which is sisters Meg (guitar, vocals) and Dia Frampton (lead vocal), Nick Price (drums), Carlo Gimenez (guitar), Jonathan Snyder (bass) -- spent the summer headlining the Hurley.com stage on the Vans Warped Tour, then did several dates with The Almost and Josh Moore. The U.S. leg of their extensive North American tour with The Spill Canvas begins October 24th in St. Paul, MN, and continues through the end of November.

"Something Real," which was praised by Rolling Stone for its "close, pristine harmonies" and "heavy-hearted tunes," has spawned two well-received singles, "Monster," which has sold 90,000 downloads, and "Roses," which has sold almost 15,000 downloads. The video for the latest single "Roses," which premiered on MTVU this summer, has since been nominated for an MTVU Woodie Award for "Viral Woodie" (Most Downloaded, Streamed, Blogged video, as voted by MTVU.com users).

Meg & Dia began attracting attention for their confessional alt-pop and dynamic live performances while appearing on last year's Warped Tour as the first official MySpace House Band, where they performed twice each day in the MySpace tent. In August 2006, they released "Something Real" on Doghouse Records (the label that discovered All American Rejects and Say Anything), which was co-produced by American Hi-Fi's Stacy Jones and Bill Lefler. The album has sold more than 40,000 copies. Since its release, the buzz on Meg & Dia has earned the band their network TV debut on "Last Call with Carson Daly," and been featured in Teen People, Cosmo Girl, The Los Angeles Times, Alternative Press, and Rolling Stone (which dubbed them a "New Artist You Should Know About"), and a spotlight on MTV's "Discover and Download."
