Say hello to July's Artist of the Month, Circo

Going back to their traditional roots of only awarding one Artist of the Month (darn you May and your four award honors!), has given July's prestigious monthly artist honors to the latin rockers Circo. Solely based on the band picture above and not hearing a lyric or note from their album, we think they're pretty okay fine. Anyone who has a cranium tattoo is semi-cool in our book. So, as with all AotM announcements, you can grab a few Circo music video downloads off the Xbox Live Marketplace at your convenience. Circo, kinda like circle, but not really.

Disturbed snags June's Artist of the Month honors

Getting all the video game love lately with some newly released Rock Band DLC, Disturbed and their new Indestructible album have caught Microsoft's eye resulting in Disturbed being June's Xbox Live Artist of the Month. Hip hip hooray! And, as with all AoTM artists, U.S. fanboys can hit up the Xbox Live Marketplace for a free video download to listen to, take in and enjoy. Also, after playing "Inside the Fire" on Rock Band for the first time last night, we 100% agree with Disturbed's AoTM honors, because that song is crazy good. Crazy, crazy good.

May brings not one, but four Artists of the Month

Because one just isn't enough, this month Microsoft has crowned four bands, yes four different bands May's Artist(s) of the Month. Freakin' epic! As part of their honor, each band has a little blurb over on and video content goodness on the (U.S. only) Xbox Live Marketplace. Anyway, we should just tell you who the four Artist(s) of the Month are shouldn't we? We're such teases. Ahem, we proudly present to you May's artists which include Voltio, Tyga, Death Cab for Cutie and Dierks Bentley. And, sadly, we only have ever heard of Dierks Bentley.

Avenged Sevenfold is April's Artist of the Month

Leaving behind memories of Bow Wow and Omarion, we're heading into a new musical direction with's Artist of the Month series where, for the month of April, Avenged Sevenfold has been awarded the monthly crown.

Avenged Sevenfold's Artist of the Month honors come riding on the heels of the October 2007 "celebrated" release of their self titled Avenged Sevenfold album which ultimately results in, for a limited time, a free Avenged Sevenfold music video download off the Xbox Live Marketplace. That's it kids, Avenged Sevenfold is your April Artist of the Month. Enjoy.

Bow Wow and Omarion become Artists of the Month

Put down the rolled up newspaper and break out the doggy biscuits, because Lil Bow Wow and his good pal Omarion are this month's Xbox Live Artist(s) of the Month. Word!

Both Bow Wow and Omarion got to share this month's AotM honors, because of their collaborative album Face Off which, according to the press blurb, showcases a "quantum leap in creative and artistic musical expression". And here at X3F, we're supporters of any and all quantum leaping. So go ahead and download their first Face Off single "Hey Baby (Jump Off)" from the XBLM and maybe, if you're up to it, grab a copy of the album at retail. If you do make the purchase, not only will you be supporting both Bow Wow and Omarion, but you'll also be supporting quantum leaping as well.

Artist of the Month: Lenny Kravitz's Love Revolution

Just when you thought it was safe to turn on your radio or download music off the Xbox Live Marketplace, think again. Lenny Kravitz is February's Xbox Live Artist of the Month and he's demanding a revolution. A love revolution.

Celebrating the release of his eighth album It Is Time For A Love Revolution, Kravitz earned Artist of the Month honors and has XBLM downloads to prove it. If Kravitz is your thing, make your way to the music video section of the Marketplace where you'll find a free video download as well as some behind the scenes footage that should make you want to start a love revolution. Or so that's the effect we expect Kravitz's music to have on listeners. Love and peace guys, love and peace for all.

Chiodos claims January's Artist of the Month

Michigan's high-energy musical group Chiodos (formerly The Chiodos Brothers) are January's Artist of the Month and that means one thing ... free music video download off the XBLM. Woohoo! Chiodos' single "Baby, You Wouldn't Last a Minute on the Creek" from their Bone Palace Ballet album will (eventually) be a free download off the US Marketplace. A music video that probably looks like the one embedded above. Chiodos. Not to be confused with those other crunchy orange snacks.

Velvet Revolver is July's Artist of the Month

In celebration of their latest album release Libertad, rockers Velvet Revolver have been honored with the title of July's Artist of the Month. Head onto the XBLM to download the making of video of their music video "She Builds Quick Machines", but not actually the music video. Odd, we know. If Velvet Revolver doesn't excite you check out Ryan Adams' very "unique" music video for "I Taught Myself How to Grow Old". Both downloads are free, so download at your own musical risk.
