Coliseum

Coliseum

Formed in late 2003, this Louisville, KY/Birmingham, AL power trio has toured and recorded with relentless abandon for the better part of a decade. They issued a self-titled debut album on Level Plane in 2004, followed by the Goddamage EP on Auxiliary Records in 2005, before joining the Relapse Records roster in 2007 for the release of their second album, No Salvation. Following the release of No Salvation, the band embarked on countless tours in North America, Europe, Australia and Japan with Converge, High On Fire, MONO, Napalm Death, Baroness, Russian Circles, Torche, Integrity, and many others. In 2009, Coliseum released the "True Quiet / Last Wave" 7" single on Deathwish Inc. before joining the Temporary Residence family in 2010, where they have released their most compelling and resonant music to date.

California X

Though California X’s cartwheeling, low-end-friendly noise has drawn quick comparisons to Dinosaur Jr. (also, it should be repeated, of Amherst, Mass.), lead vocalist Lemmy Gurtowsky shares little in common with J Mascis. Not a whiner or a wailer, the Happy Valley trio’s frontman is, like his band’s self-titled debut full-length, direct in a way that recalls Bob Mould and Steve Brooks of Torche instead. But just as Brooks’ Miami metal outfit has succeeded in maintaining extraordinarily high sugar levels despite their work’s frenetic nature, California X are gifted popsmiths, never allowing the sludge to obscure their many hooks

If 2 Ton Bug were a lover your grandmother would keep their picture in a locket, having vowed never to speak their name. Equal parts Delta blues and Devo, synth-punk and garage rock, they are: a lead singer whose words tell of persecuted witches and mad scientists; a virtuoso drummer who bangs out primal rhythms on a literal pile of garbage; a slide guitarist who hollers into a cannibalized telephone; a classically trained pianist on the bass. Dubbed "ENERGY DRINK AMERICANA" by Thunder Zone mogul JUICEBOXXX and bred in the heart of Connecticut, 2 Ton Bug has played with Quintron and Miss Pussycat, JEFF the Brotherhood, Anamanaguchi, Math the Band, and more. They released their debut album Wedding of the Century in 2011, a followup EP, Thrillsville, and an acclaimed music video for "School Stinks" in 2012, and have a forthcoming album entitled It's a Wonderful Life due in 2013.
