Electric Six
Electric Six
Eternal life can seem like an eternity. Ask any vampire. The continuous march of sun ups, sun downs, transformations of form, seductions, cape fittings & exsanguinations. Eventually it all just becomes an endless, tired routine. It all seems so exciting & so sexy to those of us who operate knowing we have limited time. But ask any vampire about the downside of eternal life, & you won't be surprised to hear tales of binge eating garlic bread just to feel the hurt, or of the occasional dangling of a wooden stake just over the center of the rib cage. Electric Six knows all about eternal life. Electric Six has been around forever & it can never die. That's lovely, but it's also very tiring. Fresh Blood For Tired Vampyres is the new release by Electric Six on Metropolis Records. One listen & you will immediately understand that the sexiest vampires are urban vampires. Where E6 has dabbled in dance, hip-hop & R&B in the past, Fresh Blood is the whole enchilada. It's thirteen songs designed to make the listener interested in smooth & nasty fuckin', the way they do it in the city. From the Grandmaster Flash-inspired Number Of The Beast to the super smooth tour of the NYC outer boroughs Mood Is Improving, the listener finds himself immediately deposited into an urban drop zone with hustlas & dickblockas coming from behind every corner. The radio-ready pop hits I'll Be In Touch & Dance With Dark Forces are the tracks that get the listener off the street & into the club. & it would not be an Electric Six album without an epic closer, that being the beautiful & haunting Spacewalkin', the ballad that assures the listener that the vampire has now fed & will live a thousand more years, albeit in outer space. Electric Six changes more frequently than change itself, but ultimately this just means they're never gonna put out the same album twice. Fresh Blood for Tired Vampires is poppy & smooth, nasty & raw...& oh so life affirming, especially if you are undead

Northern Faces
Northern Faces
“The only thing we want people to take away from our music is a feeling,” explains singer/guitarist Bryan Shortell of Northern Faces. “It doesn't matter what it is. The best music makes you actually feel something. It can be any shade of color on the emotional spectrum, but that's what makes a good song. If someone can listen to our record, or see us live and be affected by it in some way, then in my book, we're doing something right.”

Offering impossibly catchy hooks and melodies, unparalleled harmonies, blues-influenced instrumentation and a modern pop sensibility, Northern Faces has crafted an impressive standout sound that is all their own. The Albany, NY-based indie-rock outfit showcases their sonic prowess on their self-titled, debut full-length, which was released in April 2015 via Equal Vision Records.

Lead single “Wait, Wait, Wait” has quickly earned the band new fans and widespread attention around the world, receiving radio support from the likes of WEQX, WRFF, WFUZ, WHSN, RadioBDC, WLZX, WEMF and more, with new stations continuously adding the song into rotation.

Northern Faces has also received over 6 million plays on Spotify and has been featured on the Alternative Top 100, Hot Alternative, Rainy Day and New Music Tuesday Official Spotify playlists. “Wait, Wait, Wait” currently holds 2.6 million of those streams alone.

Northern Faces was recorded at The Barber Shop Studios in Lake Hopatcong, NJ, with producer Casey Bates (Portugal. The Man, Gatsby’s American Dream, Fear Before); And is the follow up to the band’s debut EP, Southern Places, which was released in March 2013. The band has completed the recording of their sophomore full-length and plan to release it in late 2017.

Northern Faces' debut show was an opening slot for The Kooks and Royal Teeth in early 2012. The band has since toured and shared stages with the diverse likes of The 1975, Kongos, Cage The Elephant, Say Anything, The Dear Hunter, RX Bandits, Electric Guest, Civil Twilight, Futurebirds, and Heartless Bastards, and has performed at SXSW and CMJ Festivals.

“Our live shows are our pride and joy,” the band shares. “We take a lot of pride in trying to put on a show that leaves a lasting impression on the audience. The stage really is our home.”

Mad Anthony has been detonating their brand of loud, Garage/Punk Rock since 2007. “So what does Mad Anthony play exactly? From its volume and breakneck vigor, it’s Punk, pure and simple, but there is so much more at work here. Vocalist/guitarist Ringo Jones is like Iggy Pop channeling the spirit of Mississippi John Hurt in a Dead Boys tribute, screaming until the veins in his neck stand out like bridge cable under his skin. When Jones and guitarist/vocalist Adam Flaig start trading riffs, there’s a galloping rhythm that suggests Dave Alvin in his seminal Blasters days with a live power line down his trousers. And the rhythm section of power bassist Dave Markey and new drummer Marc Sherlock is thunder personified… If you see the name Mad Anthony on a telephone pole, get the information and get there. It will change you.”
