After a month of listening to hundreds of demo submissions, Atticus Clothing is proud to present The Malheruex, from the San Gabriel Valley in California as the winner of the first "Get Out of The Garage" giveaway.
The goal of the giveaway was to help unsigned bands take a step towards the next level. With Atticus’ dedication to help musicians build what they need to succeed, they teamed up with industry leading brands and put together a package that would assist in the bands success. The Malheruex have the sound, the work ethic, and the passion to succeed and this is why the decision was an easy one. There is no doubt that the future is bright for this band.
"I never imagined myself being a part of Atticus. In December 2008 The Malheruex was announced as the winner of "Get Out of The Garage" giveaway. I was extremely excited to know that Atticus would now be a part of our bands progress, and it would be our privilege to help promote Atticus. We are excited to be a part of the Atticus family, and grateful to all the great companies that hooked us up with new equipment. We are really looking forward to the Atticus Fall tour!" – Adrian Ocampo, The Malheruex.
None of this would have been possible without the help of Epitaph Records, Epiphone Guitars, SJC Custom Drums, SABIAN Cymbals, Vater Percussion, and Alternative Press who donated essential assets to help the band succeed in 2009. The winning band will also receive a year long endorsement with Atticus Clothing and a spot on an upcoming Atticus sponsored tour.
