Calgary's own WORMBOX makes their first U.S. appearance performing with Heaven & Hell, Alice Cooper, Queensryche and many more at the Locobazooka Festival in Mansfield, MA, taking place Sept 7/07.

Attention: Arts/Entertainment Editor, City Editor CALGARY, ALBERTA, MEDIA ADVISORY--(Marketwire - Aug. 28, 2007) - WORMBOX will be performing at the gig of a lifetime alongside many legendary bands that they have looked up to for many years. The New England music festival "LOCOBAZOOKA", now in it's 16th year, is known for showcasing some of the world's best unsigned acts. As well as the headlining acts, the festival will feature approximately 40 independent bands from around the globe. This year, out of the thousands of bands that applied to appear at the festival, Calgary's WORMBOX is one of 3 Canadian acts that were chosen to perform.

WORMBOX formed in late 2004, in Calgary, and consists of members: Alex Liddy (vocals), Mark Fiset (guitar), Rick Fiset (bass), Jay Rapp (guitar) and James Jameson (drums). The band has built a steady following in the local metal community, and their intense stage and light show has earned them the reputation of being the best live metal act in the city. WORMBOX independently released their latest CD, "The Judas Chair", on May 25th of this year and is currently promoting the album far and wide, now receiving airplay as far as England and Greece. WORMBOX is also currently in the process of seeking out a recording / distribution contract as well as management to help further the band's career.

"Performing with Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper, Queensryche and all of these bands is a dream come true for us. We grew up listening to these guys and we all feel very fortunate to be in the position that we're in right now."
