First-Ever Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands Compilation CD Hits Shelves September 26, 2006

SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA (August 21, 2006) - Ernie Ball proudly announces the first-ever Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands 10 Compilation CD featuring the top bands from the 2006 Battle of the Bands. For 10 years, the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands has taken the best unsigned bands in North America and put them onstage at the Vans Warped Tour. Out of the nearly 12,000 bands that signed up for this year's Battle, the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands Compilation CD represents the best in unsigned music.

"We are extremely excited to give bands yet another opportunity to come out on top in our multifaceted Battle," said Brian Ball of the Ernie Ball Company. "It was incredibly challenging choosing who would make the final cut out of the almost 12,000 Battle applicants, but I'm confident that the tracks we chose truly exemplify the genuine, stand-out musical talent that Ernie Ball constantly stands behind."

The Compilation CD features tracks from 13 bands - chosen by a select group of Ernie Ball staff and sponsors - including:


* · A Heartwell Ending - Give Up to Give In
* · As Blood Runs Black - In Dying Days
* · Brightwood - Sit Still
* · Hometown Anthem - Like No Other
* · Karate High School - Twice Upon a Time
* · Mayday Parade - When I Get Home You�re So Dead
* · Meriwether - RIP New Orleans
* · My Favorite Highway - How to Call a Bluff
* · Natives of the New Dawn - People
* · The Brotherhood of Dae Hun - Bury Me
* · The Flatliners - Bad News
* · The Midnight Renewal - The Lottery
* · The Weakend - The Sudden Loss of Innocence



"Earning a spot on the Ernie Ball Compilation CD is an extreme honor for us!" said Drew Reilley of Meriwether. "Being actively touring musicians, we've experienced first hand the time and support that Ernie Ball has put into musicians and their art. So many amazing artists have been part of Ernie Ball's team - it's only natural to be overwhelmed with excitement!"

Added Chris Cresswell of The Flatliners, "Saying that this is an honor is an understatement. I remember reading the back of the packaging of my Ernie Ball strings when I first started playing guitar, eyeing each and every band name and thinking, 'Wow, these are all my favorite bands.' That really makes this amazing. I've always loved Ernie Ball."

Available September 26 from Warcon Records, the Compilation CD will have full distribution, appearing in all prominent music outlets as well as Guitar Center stores nationwide. It will have a suggested retail price of $7.99.
