Famous Clothing Brand Peace Frogs To Sponsor The Syn -`Big Sky Tour 2009'
Includes Exclusive Merchandising Agreement

Peace Frogs, a leading US manufacturer of ecologically responsible, sustainable living, and green-themed clothing joins with multimedia leader Umbrello Music Entertainment, LLC, London|New York, the home of legendary 'Mod Prog' recording artists The Syn, in presenting 'Big Sky Tour 2009.'

The partnership includes an exclusive merchandising agreement to create, manufacture, distribute and sell authentic branded Syn merchandise. The jointly-designed product line will be available for sale at all of The Syn's live performances, as well as through UME's own global distribution network. In addition, Peace Frogs will offer its own signature `Environmental by Nature' merchandise at all of The Syn shows during this tour.

The Syn plan to launch their highly-anticipated North American tour in April with performances scheduled coast to coast, including special in-store performances at key Peace Frogs' retailers nationwide.

One eagerly awaited highlight of the Big Sky tour will be two full evenings of fund raising performances by The Syn-all proceeds to be donated to music, education and the arts. These performances will be held in the Peninsula/Middle Peninsula area of Hampton Roads, Virginia, very near to Peace Frogs' national headquarters in Gloucester.

Catesby Jones, Peace Frogs' Founder and CEO states that, "We are the original green. When a product has the Peace Frogs logo associated with it, a customer knows that they are doing their part to spread a sustainable philosophy. Part of that green lifestyle is a positive attitude. Over 3 million people a year visit our website looking for that Peace Frogs state-of-mind and they will now be able to find The Syn there too."

Steve Nardelli, Umbrello Music Entertainment's Founder & CEO, and the lyricist/lead singer for The Syn continues "The association of Umbrello with Peace Frogs is a natural. We have the music and they have the visual iconography which complements what we do extremely well on many different levels. Look for the release of our new CD Big Sky to feature unparalleled music aligned with some of the most creative tour memorabilia that this new century has yet to see."

The Syn Big Sky Tour 2009 dates to be announced soon. [But it was "leaked" via the Echolyn newsgroup, that a date for April 26 has been scheduled for the North Star Bar in Philadelphia, with Echolyn supporting... -ed.]
