The Spill Canvas Is MTV's Newest 'Discover & Download' Artist

"All Over You" Clip Added to MTV's Big 10 and MTV2's Elite 8; Current Album -- "No Really, I'm Fine" -- Out Now on Sire Records

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - January 16, 2008) - The Spill Canvas is the latest artist to be included in MTV's "Discover & Download" series, which spotlights the hottest new music, thanks to the warm reception the band has received for its major-label debut album "No Really, I'm Fine," which was released by Sire Records in October 2007.

The first single from "No Really, I'm Fine" -- "All Over You" -- has been officially added to MTV's Big 10, MTV2's Elite 8, and mtvU's Summa Cum Laude rotation, and is in heavy rotation on MTV Hits. The clip, which can be viewed on The Spill Canvas's official website (, has also been shown on "Steven's Untitled Rock Show" on Fuse. The band appeared on MTV's "TRL" on January 14th in conjunction with the channel's First Look promotion.

Photos of the Spill Canvas -- which is vocalist guitarist Nick Thomas, guitarist Dan Ludeman, bassist Landon Heil, and drummer Joe Beck -- will be displayed, along with the "Discover & Download" logo, on the shades on the side of the Viacom building in Manhattan's Times Square for one to two weeks.

"No Really, I'm Fine" is the third release and first major label debut from the Sioux Falls, South Dakota quartet. Produced by Neal Avron (The Wallflowers, Fall Out Boy), Alternative Press has praised the album, saying "'No Really' is primed for wide release -- soaring hooks, sliding melodies, and addictive choruses." Their previous album, 'One Fell Swoop,' was released by One Eleven Records in May 2005 and sold more than 50,000 copies, leading to the band's deal with Sire Records.

In tour news, the Spill Canvas, will begin a series of European dates with Plain White T's in Europe starting February 2 through February 20, and will hit the road with Jack's Mannequin in 2008. Last year, The Spill Canvas played to packed rooms on their own headlining tour, and has also toured with Motion City Soundtrack, Straylight Run, Mae, and have appeared on the Vans Warped Tour.
