The sole winner of all rounds within the competition, gets to perform in Barcelona, Spain. So, for this round, it just consists of you casting a vote. The band with the most votes moves on to the live performance portion of the competition. That band will be performing alongside eleven other bands that have been selected by a board of Hard Rock Cafe officials.

We were in the competition last year in attempts to play Rome, Italy, and made it to the Ohio finals. This year, we’re lookin’ to head to Barcelona! We’d appreciate your votes! Voting ends 2/16/15 at 4pm ET.¬† All you have to do is head to this link: http://bit.ly/1vBSuhS and click “VOTE.”

Yesterday, he had to undergo a surgery to remove multiple tumors from his lungs. He’s doing alright now. With that being said, we’re just asking for positive thoughts and energy. We also wanted to keep you guys in the loop, as we appreciate every ounce of support you’ve shown us. We’ll keep you updated on Derek’s recovery, and while he’s healin’, we’ll still be working away on the new album. We’ll be hitting the stage as soon as we can!

Fuck cancer.
