Vertical Horizon Hits Big With Single 'Forever'; Summer East Coast Tour Announced

Jul 12, 2005, 01:00 ET from Metropolitan Talent / Hybrid Recordings

    NEW YORK, July 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Platinum rock group Vertical Horizon
 will be touring this summer in support of their newly re-released album, "Go."
 Fresh from a six week acoustic promo jaunt, Vertical Horizon will kick off in
 Orlando, Florida on July 19 and hit sixteen cities including multiple nights
 in New York and Washington DC. Joining the tour will be the Pat McGee Band.
     This past week, "Go" reached the #10 most downloaded album on iTunes while
 the single 'Forever,' landed #23 with a bullet on Billboard's Hot AC airplay
     "Go" was originally released by RCA in late 2003.  At the time, RCA senior
 management was going thru an upheaval and despite their platinum success, the
 band and the label agreed to go their separate ways in 2004.  The band and
 their management, Metropolitan Talent, negotiated with RCA to allow
 Metropolitan Talent / Hybrid Recordings (RED Distribution) to re-release the
 album.  "Go" was re-packaged with fresh artwork and a new song, 'Better When
 You're Not There,' for June 2005 release.
     Lead singer/lead guitarist/songwriter Matt Scannell and
 singer/guitarist/songwriter Keith Kane met at Georgetown University and formed
 the band.  Vertical Horizon released their major label debut, the
 platinum-plus "Everything You Want," yielding the hit singles 'We Are,'
 'You're a God,' 'Best I Ever Had,' and the title track, which became the most
 played song on Top 40 radio in 2000, reaching #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 and
 Adult Top 40 charts.  The song won a Radio Music Award and two Billboard Music
 Awards, while the band went on to win a Billboard Music Video Award for Best
 New Artist Modern Rock Video ('You're a God').
     Vertical Horizon is: Matt Scannell, Keith Kane, bassist Sean Hurley,
 drummer Craig MacIntyre.
