The year-long, multi-tiered celebration of Roadrunner Records' 25th anniversary culminates on December 15 when the label will host a once-in-a-lifetime concert at the Nokia Theatre in New York City. The show will feature a ROADRUNNER UNITED "house band" comprised of Joey Jordison (SLIPKNOT) on drums, Andreas Kisser (SEPULTURA) on lead guitar, Dino Cazares (ex-FEAR FACTORY, BRUJERIA) on rhythm guitar, and Adam Duce (MACHINE HEAD) on bass, and is shaping up to be a defining event in hard rock history. Special guests, including past and present Roadrunner artists and other metal icons, will join the band onstage to play 20 classic Roadrunner tunes along with a few choice cuts from "The All Star Sessions".

Released on October 11, debuting at #76 on Billboard’s Top 200 album charts, "Roadrunner United: The All Star Sessions" is the ultimate celebration of the label's anniversary, featuring 55 artists from 45 different past/current Roadrunner bands playing 18 original songs written by four chosen captains. It is a true master-class in hard rock/metal that also includes a DVD, shot by Techtronic Rocket Society (CHIMAIRA's "The Dehumanizing Process" DVD) with a full hour of behind-the-scenes footage on the recording of the album.

"Roadrunner United: The All-Star Sessions" features the first single "The End". Written by Cazares and featuring Matt Heafy (TRIVIUM) on vocals, the song is already catching fire at radio with adds at WBUZ in Nashville, WJJO in Madison, WBZX in Columbus, KILO in Colorado Springs, WIYY in Baltimore and more. The video for the song has received spins on both MTV2 and Fuse, while the latter also aired an interview with several of the "all-stars," including Dez Fafara of DEVILDRIVER, Cristian Machado and Dave Chavarri from ILL NINO, Josh Silver from TYPE O NEGATIVE and Cazares.
