We’re excited to announce that our tune “Where I’m Sposed To Be” will be featured in the upcoming theatrical release, Barely Lethal. This action comedy was directed by Kyle Newman and stars Hailee Steinfeld, Jessica Alba, and Samuel L. Jackson. In the film, a teenage special ops agent yearning for a “normal” adolescence fakes her own death and enrolls as an exchange student in a typical American high school. She quickly learns that surviving the treacherous waters of being a teenager can be more difficult than international espionage. The movie is currently scheduled to drop in early 2015.

We’re psyched to announce that our song “A New Day” will appear in the upcoming independent feature film, Frame Switch. 

Produced in Austin, TX, Frame Switch was directed by Drew Thomas, written by John Herndon, and it stars Gary Kent, Deanna Brochin, and Jon Michael Davis. Murder, corruption, and conspiracy are at the heart of this suspenseful, intriguing thriller that is told entirely from the perspective of surveillance cameras, cell phones, webcams, traffic and dash cams, news reports, TV commercials, and even drones. The film is scheduled for release in the spring of 2015. 

Stay tuned for more details.

EPOCH FAILURE TO RELEASE NEW SINGLE IN ADVANCE OF FIVE-SONG DEBUT EP
New Jersey urban pop duo personifies a “work hard, play hard, die hard” ideal

DETROIT, Michigan (September 4, 2014) – North Star Media recording artist Epoch Failure will release its next single (“Champion”) on October 7, 2014 in advance of a five-song debut EP scheduled for release in January of 2015.

The new single, “Champion” is an adrenalin-charged, urban/rock hybrid that follows the duo’s highly successful first single, the infectious summer jam, “Where I’m Sposed to Be.” While “Champion” may strike some as a major departure from the fun, boozy mayhem of “Where I’m Sposed to Be,” the new song is actually anchored to the same YOLO fundamentals underlying the melodic, party anthem. “Just like ‘Where I’m Sposed to Be,’” says Epoch Failure’s Nick Young, “‘Champion’ is also about living in the moment and taking a never surrender approach– going after what you want in a full-throttle manner.” He then adds, “The only difference is this new song is more about sweat and blood than Jack and Coke.”

Working out of his Atlanta studio, Grammy-nominated producer Billy Hume (Lil’ Jon, Ying Yang, Pitbull) mixed and co-produced “Where I’m Sposed to Be,” along with the four other tracks on the upcoming EP. “Where I’m Sposed to Be” has aired regularly on 100+ international video outlets including MuchMusic, CMC, The Pulse TV Network, Video Box, Zuus Media, and many more. In addition, the song was recently featured in an episode of Oxygen Network’s Bad Girls Club and it is set to appear in the upcoming theatrical release, Barely Lethal (starring Jessica Alba, Samuel L. Jackson, and Hailee Steinfeld).

Epoch Failure (pronounced “epic failure”) is an urban pop duo resulting from the collaborative efforts of singer/producer Billy Joe Marrero and rapper Nick Young. Billy Joe (aka “Billy The Kidd”) was born and raised in Camden, NJ. As one of five boys growing up in a single parent home, he is no stranger to challenges. In 2007, ABC’s 20/20 came to Camden to profile children growing up under the conditions of extreme poverty. Billy was one of three kids selected by the show’s producers. For nearly a year he was followed by news anchor Diane Sawyer and crew, who even spent a night in his family’s house to experience sleep without heat or power. After this 20/20 special aired, the positive response to Billy and his family was overwhelming. So much so, they were nominated for an Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. The makeover included a full home recording studio for Billy to pursue his musical passions and this was -ultimately- his launching pad and turning point. Billy’s musical counterpart, Nick Young (aka “Nickey Knoxx”), was born in Brooklyn and then bounced around the east coast before finally landing in Trenton, NJ. As a rapper, Nick has been grinding on the Jersey hip hop scene since his early teens. Now, in addition to penning brilliant lyrics and rockin’ crazy crowds, Nick serves full-time in the New Jersey Army National Guard as a photographer and broadcast journalist.

When asked to describe Epoch Failure, singer Billy Joe Marrero lays it out like this: “Epoch Failure is the voice of everyone who has fallen or stumbled, but still had the heart to stand up again and climb back into the ring. It’s about accepting our failures and turning a negative into a positive. You fight through the struggles and come out the other side better, wiser, and stronger as a result. And then, of course, always raise a glass or two to celebrate.”
