PostSubject: True Becoming Win A Spot At Uproar Fest In Scranton   Wed Aug 29, 2012 7:34 pm

After padding their resume with sets supporting active rock heavy-hitters such as Papa Roach, In This Moment, Pop Evil and more over the past several months, NEPA's own True Becoming announced today that they have won the regional competition to play at the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival at Toyota Pavilion in Scranton, PA on August 28th.

Out of the 1,651 bands competing nationally, True Becoming kept pace with front of the pack by placing 18th overall in fan votes when the contest officially ended. This earned the band members a chance to share the spotlight at the event alongside bands such as Shinedown, Godsmack, P.O.D., Staind, and more while playing on the Ernie Ball Stage.

The competition for the slot on the Scranton date of the festival was fierce with three other Northeast PA bands also placing in the top-20 nationally. Because of this, when the voting was complete, True Becoming lead vocalist Rich Allen thought that his band had just missed out on the amazing opportunity by a narrow margin.

"We were sure we'd be congratulating one of the other bands on their win." said Allen.

But then, True Becoming received an email with the subject "Congratulations Scranton Battle of the Bands Winner". As it turns out, Uproar Festival regional winners were not just determined by the fan votes alone. The competing bands were also judged on five categories: Originality of Material, Songwriting Skills, Sense of Innovation, Quality of Performance, and Public Appeal. The panel of judges included four of rock music's top industry professionals.

"We all feel so blessed and honored for the support from our fans," explained bassist Ed Stef. "And for us to have been chosen out of so many great artists is an honor upon itself."

With their win at this date of the Uproar Festival, True Becoming is now in the running (along with other regional winners at each date of the tour) for the grand prize of the Ernie Ball battle of the bands which includes a record produced by Jay Baumgardner (Bush, Evanescence, Papa Roach) and the opportunity to perform next year on the entire Uproar Festival's national touring schedule.
