This event is all ages
The Sacramento-based band features Jonny Craig (Dance Gavin Dance, Emarosa) , an artist who has built a name and reputation for himself but is now branching out with his new band SLAVES.
Slaves features Craig's unique, critically acclaimed voice, which is drenched with emotion and rich with soul, all the while leaving you salivating for more.
Royal Thunder is an Atlanta based, four-piece, progressive rock/metal, alternative band founded by lead guitarist Josh Weaver in 2006. After going through some lineup changes, Mlny Parsonz (bass/vocals) joined the group in 2007. Together, the two added drummer Lee Smith whom Weaver and Parsonz had played with in a previous band, and then last but not least Josh Coleman (rhythm guitar) was added to the fold.
Royal Thunder self-recorded and released a seven song EP in late 2009 before signing with renowned independent label, Relapse Records, who re-issued the EP in 2010. The band quickly gained critical praise, being described as "Led Zeppelin astride a psychedelic unicorn" by NPR.org and "Black Math Horseman or Johnette Napolitano of Concrete Blonde, fronting Black Sabbath." by Brooklyn Vegan.
Royal Thunder is set to release their proper full-length debut entitled 'CVI' via Relapse Records in the spring of 2011. 'CVI' is a sultry, southern, hard rock thinker of an album that is an absolute must have for fans of the Atlanta and Savannah hard rock scenes (Mastodon, Baroness, Kylesa, Black Tusk, etc). Royal Thunder have crafted an unforgettable, truly soulful sound with 'CVI'.
With a hard-hitting, hypnotic live show that is more of a ritual than a rock concert, the four piece has been capturing audiences with their passionate performances, sharing the stage with a range of artists including Scott Kelly of Neurosis, Wovenhand, Birds of Avalon, Kylesa, and many more. Keep this band on your radar in 2012 and beyond.
A Scent Like Wolves
Berks County PA's six piece outfit, A SCENT LIKE WOLVES has been making a huge impact in both the local scene and other crowds on the east coast. A SCENT LIKE WOLVES combines the intensity of the metalcore genre with the melody and song writing ability of an alternative band, allowing them to integrate flawlessly into numerous scenes. This interesting blend of polar opposite genres was masterfully recorded by Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland (August Burns Red, Texas In July, Affiance) in the form of '...And the Story Goes', A SCENT LIKE WOLVES' self-released LP. Using raw power and disciplined musicianship, the band has been picking up more and more momentum with every show they play, from basement shows to convention centers. A SCENT LIKE WOLVES are certain to be PA's newly discovered break out performers.
