A Lot Like Birds
A Lot Like Birds is a post-hardcore band from Sacramento, CA, known for their tendency to flawlessly blend a wide array of genres; from ambient soundscapes to aggressive punk-fueled anthems to unpredictable prog-rock freakouts.
The band was initially the brainchild of guitarist Michael Franzino. Franzino invited a couple Sacramento-based musicians and friends to perform with him, the result being Plan B, the band's debut album. After solidifying a consistent lineup, the band started to pick up buzz in the Sacramento scene, with their dynamic and energetic live shows getting rave reviews.
In early 2011, the band announced that Kurt Travis (formally of Dance Gavin Dance) would be joining the band as a second vocalist. Soon after, they signed to Doghouse Records (All American Rejects, Say Anything, The Get Up Kids) and acquired The Artery Foundation (Asking Alexandria, Dance Gavin Dance, Alesana) as management.
After signing both deals, they entered Interlace Audio Recording Studio with producer / engineer Kris Crummet (Closure In Moscow, Fear Before, Dance Gavin Dance) to record their second full length, Conversation Piece.
After it's release in the fall of 2011, Conversation Piece received praise and they were called "one of post-hardcore's most important new bands and one of the few capable of saving the scene." (-MindEqualsBlown.net).
A Lot Like Birds will spend all of 2012 on the road, taking their new album and frenzied live antics to the masses.
Jule Vera is a young female-fronted Indie Pop Rock band from Auburn, Alabama. Influences like The Pretty Reckless, The Killers, and No Doubt help the raw, poppy melodies and emotional lyrics fit in an artsy rock groove.
The three teenagers that make up Jule Vera met in 2010 and formed a group with a few other members to play local shows, one of which was a Battle of the Bands contest judged by the grammy nominated band After Edmund. The band won the contest because of the originality of one of their songs, which put them into contact with After Edmund frontman Mitch Parks, of Taken Productions. The band went on to record an EP with Parks, which brought three specific members of the group together, forming a totally new band with a better sound and better songs. The three decided to call the new band Jule Vera, and started playing shows from their upcoming EP in April 2013. Jule Vera's debut EP will release Fall 2013.
