"For those apt to bop a little harder than the average indie show goer, War Twins serves as a sanctuary."
War Twins has become known for their dynamic live set full of passionate energy, rock n' roll soul and deep electronics. A growing buzz has taken them from their hometowns on the east coast to a string of successful nationwide tours and their new home in Los Angeles.
The duo was founded by singer/songwriter Gaetana and drummer/producer James Grey. Beginning in early 2013, the band built a bed in the back of a ‘98 Plymouth Voyager, and promoted their first demo on a tour that took them to over eighty cities. Since, they've performed close to 500 shows across the country to date.
Most recently, War Twins has supported international acts such as Wolf Alice, Alien Ant Farm and Filter,
with additional performances at SXSW, Catskill Chill, Slingshot and other festivals.
Thanks to the help of their fast growing community, through crowd-funding, War Twins spent time in late November 2017 recording some of their newest music with grammy award winning producer, Sylvia Massy (Prince/ Johnny Cash/ Red Hot Chili Peppers), which will be released in early 2018.
Stoner doom metal.
Arms & Ears
Arms and Ears is a 5 piece Indie/rock group based out of Boston, MA.
The Rupert Selection
The Rupert Selection is the creation of Reilly Somach, Zak Brown and Peter Crofton: a trio of longtime high-school friends from Manchester-By-The-Sea, MA. What was initially intended as a fun side project in 2008, soon morphed into a serious endeavor as the band honed their skills with dozens of shows throughout 2010. Conspiritorium, their self-produced, debut album was released in early 2011. The band has since continued to write thoroughly innovative and original material and perform virtually non-stop throughout New England and, most recently, in venues in NYC, NJ, DE, and PA as their fanbase continues to grow. 2016 alone featured the release of their first official single and self-directed music video for “Funeral Party" with another for "Tree Hands" released later in the year, airplay on Boston radio, and more than 40 shows throughout New England and the Mid-Atlantic. So far, 2017 is shaping up to be the biggest year yet with the release of a new EP "Baseball Practice" in March that was recorded at The Bridge Sound and Stage in Cambridge, MA with producer/engineer Alex Allinson, finishing as a finalist in the historic Rock and Roll Rumble competition in April, sessions well underway for another EP and dates booked throughout New England and the North East. With their high energy performances and mind-bending blend of genres, The Rupert Selection are a power trio in every sense of the word and not to be missed.
