To celebrate CM‘s 35th Anniversary, we take a look back at some Showcase alumni who’ve gone on to achieve big things.

Art of Dying

Originally Featured: January/February 2006

Art of Dying were just over a year into their career when we first took notice back in 2006 and didn’t even have an album to their name. That didn’t stop their single “Get Through This” from turning heads, though, and it was just a few short years later that the band would work with bona fide hit makers like Howard Benson and Chris Lord-Alge on their major label debut, 2011’s Vices and Virtues. The album spawned four songs that cracked the top 20 of the Billboard’s US Mainstream Rock chart and tours with some of the genre’s most accomplished heavyweights.
