JANUS’ NOX AERIS MAKES BILLBOARD DEBUT!
#24 ON “HEATSEEKERS” AND #33 ON “HARD MUSIC” CHARTS;
TOUR WITH CAVO STARTS APRIL 7

Ever since the news broke in January about the March 27 release of JANUS’ new NOX AERIS album (REALID Records, through Warner Music Group’s Independent Label Group), fans have been anxious to hear the music. Thanks to their support, NOX AERIS debuts on Billboard’s Alternative New Artist chart at #7, the Heatseekers chart at #24 and on Hard Music chart at #33.

The first single, “Stains,” reached the Top 20 on Billboard’s Active Rock chart after garnering huge spins on such radio stations as WIIL (Chicago), KPNT (St. Louis), WBUZ (Nashville), WJJO (Madison), WWBN (Flint), KHTQ (Spokane), SiriusXM’s “Octane” and “hardDrive XL.”

In other happenings, Janus has teamed up with Guitar World magazine to offer guitar-playing fans the chance of a lifetime. By learning the album’s first single, “Stains,” and submitting a video of themselves playing it, one lucky winner will get a chance to perform the song live with the band later this year. Further details can be found at the Guitar World website here: http://bit.ly/HbN2FI. The deadline for entries is Monday, April 16.

As Outburn magazine recently praised the new album (in a 9 out of 10 review): “NOX AERIS is a visceral sonic document of adventure and the transformation that can result…On the surface an emotionally charged blend of Deftones and Tool, NOX AERIS weaves a complex web of ethereal noise. Passages of thick, meat-grinding distortion culminate in Meshuggah style spasms and interlock beautifully with an atmospheric blanket of restrained synths…The catchiness of NOX AERIS is deceptive in masking the album’s unpredictable song structures, which speaks to Janus’ collective growth as writers. Theirs is a nuanced, understated, and powerful heaviness.”

In touring news, now that JANUS has concluded dates with Chevelle and Middle Class Rut, along with a handful of headlining shows, the band will be heading out with Cavo starting April 7 in Battle Creek and Pop Evil starting May 29. They’ll also be making a stop at Rocklahoma on May 25.
