New Crunch - Live At Firefest DVD released!



Emerging like a phoenix from the ashes of their former guise, the critically lauded and well-regarded melodic rock act Adriangale have reunited to form CRUNCH. The band features seminal vocalist Jamie Rowe (Guardian/Adriangale/London Calling), acclaimed guitarist/producer Vic Rivera (Adriangale/Poley-Rivera) and respected guitarist Eddie Campbell (Adriangale/Arabia). For the bassist slot, Crunch enlisted Doug Odell (formerly of Ice Age) to complete the newly-formed act.

“Adriangale never really had true closure,” says Vic Rivera (chief songwriter/principal architect of both Adriangale and Crunch). “This was due in no small part to our not having rights to continued usage of the name after the CRUNCH record was completed. Consequentially, as Adriangale’s music deserved to have a much broader audience than had previously afforded under our prior working conditions, Jamie, Eddie and myself always knew that there would be a time for us to reconvene when the right opportunity presented itself.”

Such an opportunity arose when  the popular FIREFEST rock festival  contacted Vic Rivera in November of 2006 to gauge interest in appearing at the 2007 line-up of that show. Chomping at the bit, Jamie, Vic, Ed and Doug (who had previously worked with Adriangale in the studio for the
RE:PROGRAM record) were more than willing and able to participate. Though regrettably unable to secure the rights continue on as Adriangale, at the suggestion of FIREFEST a name change was proposed and immediately welcomed – thus, Crunch was born.

For long standing fans of the band formerly known as AG, their live debut  at FIREFEST was one of those moments that will live long in the memory. Cranking out a number of AG classics such as ‘Feel the Fire’ ‘Without A Moments Notice’ ‘Reap What You Sow’ and the ultimate weekend rock and roll anthem ‘Closer’ (which judging by the audience reaction all 1,700 people already knew the words!) CRUNCH proved that unlike their previous outfit they have a love of the stage and their performance reflected that.. Add to that  the debut of a brand new track ‘Starting Over’ the title track of the limited edition E.P. released only at FIREFEST .

Now ,when we say limited, we mean limited. There are only 500 copies of this E.P. in existence worldwide and FIREFEST have 300 copies which we and Crunch are giving away FREE... YES ABSOLUTELY FREE to the first 300 people to purchase a copy of the STARTING OVER  DVD, that is IN STOCK and available right now from the FIREFEST SHOP AT and the shop at Now you can have a little piece of rock and roll history and the first and only CRUNCH live performance DVD in your possession at the click of a mouse!

Once again, as with all of the FIREFEST series of DVD's,  'STARTING OVER' is a limited edition DVD with only 500 copies available worldwide. It is available in PAL REGION FREE (0) and is definitely one for your collection. Considering Vic’s most recent output with Poley/Rivera and Jamie Rowe’s continued popularity with Christian rock mega stars Guardian, this DVD will sell out in record time. It’s a testament to pure unadulterated melodic hard rock delivered with the undeniable crunch (please excuse the pun!) and panache of a bona fide American hard rock band delivering their brand of weekend entertainment to 1,700 new best friends at FIREFEST 5.
