The Maine

Despite sharing their name with a northeastern state, the Maine formed in 2007 in Tempe, AZ, a collegiate suburb of Phoenix. Most of the bandmembers — singer John O'Callaghan, guitarists Kennedy Brock and Jared Monaco, bassist Garrett Nickelsen, and drummer Pat Kirch — were in high school at the time, and the guys wasted little time turning their '90s radio rock band influences into a familiar, infectious pop-punk sound. The Maine signed to Fearless Records and released a five-song concept EP, The Way We Talk, in 2007. After performing on the Vans Warped Tour one year later, the group issued a full-length debut album, Can't Stop Won't Stop, which was produced by emo-pop veteran Matt Squire. The record peaked at number 40 on the Billboard charts and caught the ear of Warner Bros. Records, who signed the Maine to a major-label contract in 2009. After releasing a deluxe version of Can't Stop Won't Stop later that year, the group returned to the studio, eventually emerging in 2010 with the sophomore album Black & White. That year also marked some new developments for the band: their first headlining tour, and album of the year accolades for Black & White from Alternative Press. The Maine offered full-length Pioneer in December 2011.

A Rocket To The Moon

"Rooted in the tradition of late-'90s alternative rock and the pop-influenced sounds of emocore, A Rocket to the Moon was formed in 2006 in Braintree, MA. Essentially the brainchild of Nick Santino, the group started off as a solo project, with Santino handling all the instruments himself and functioning as a one-man band for two years. After releasing a pair of independent records, Santino signed with Fueled by Ramen and began touring with the label's roster of emo-pop bands; he also pieced together a proper lineup to help play the material in a concert setting. As a result, Rocket to the Moon morphed into a full-fledged group with multiple members, and the group made its official debut with On Your Side, which was released in October 2009. Four of the album's songs were later re-recorded in different arrangements for the Rainy Day Sessions EP, which featured the female country duo Larkin Poe on each track." - Chris True, AllMusicGuide

This Century is a pop rock band from Tempe, Arizona. The members are Joel Kanitz (vocals), Alex Silverman (bass), Sean Silverman (guitar) and Ryan Gose (drums)

Brighten

Brighten is an up and coming band with a lot of potential. They've got catchy lyrics and without a label they've been doing pretty well on their own. There is not only one way to interpret Brighten and who they are. Take Jimmy Eat World and stir in a little James Taylor, add a little Get Up Kids and top with a pinch of Phil Collins and out comes Brighten. They are rock and roll boys that you can take home to mom. They also perform amazingly.
