The Blind Pets: Seeing the band live is an experience no one can soon forget - they are Austin rock through and through, which means they go hard.
KIVEN is Tyler Demorest [Vocals, Guitar, Keyboard], Matt Cohen [Bass], Danny Schnair [Guitar], and Jake Reed [Drums]. Merging thick guitars and entrancing harmonies, the record properly captures the group's heavy and hypnotic sound, preserving its enigmatic intensity and ethereal spirit in the process. KIVEN manages to make history with one stand out track, "I Can Take It". For the first time, the drummer/man behind At The Drive-In's arrangements, Tony Hajjar, stepped behind the board to produce an outside band. With the legendary drummer's help, the group taps into palpable and potent energy. The energy transfers across the entire tracklisting though, especially on the undeniable first single "In The Fire", premiering online very soon. About the album, vocalist, guitarist, and keyboardist Tyler Demorest exclaims, "We spent a lot of time writing songs that were our sound and, at the same time, grew what KIVEN is. Tony had a big impact on the music. It was a trip to work with someone that we looked up to growing up. He really brought the heavy and energy, adding a big rock vibe. He pulled that out of us."
Rubberneck Lions: There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow,? between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of Los Angeles and the summit of Ventura County. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which produced the band Rubberneck Lions:
Tyler Treves - Guitar/Vox, Jaison Henderson – Drums, Ardi Ardissoni – Bass/Vox.
Somewhere in and out of the musical genres of Alt/Indie/Rock.
Tangent Transmission: TANGENT TRANSMISSION A DARK, FUN AND FUNKY FRESH SOUND Drawing from groups like The Mars Volta, Muse, Rage Against the Machine, and Incubus, Tangent Transmission's heavy guitar riffs, tight and blasting rhythms, soaring vocal lines, and shambolic emotions bring an electrifying performance to stages and speakers everywhere.
