Tigers Jaw makes the kind of music that does strange things to people. In the few years they've been together, the group and its ever morphing lineup (with Adam McIlwee and Ben Walsh as the two constant members) has established itself as one of the most creative in the Scranton scene (creative bands in Scranton being few and far between these days notwithstanding). We fell in love with them from the start. Beginning with the excellent Belongs To The Dead on Summersteps Records, they have astounded us with a series of releases—including mysterious side projects like Buona Pizza and Jewish War Veterans—containing one incredible song after another. That these songs came to us buried in tape hiss and murk only added to their mystique.
Without a distinguishable understanding of the pop and intensity, a silent video of a Lemuria show would appear to be that of a blistering hardcore trio. To the viewers surprise, turning the audio on they'd find the stage diving mania and screamers are really chanting "Maybe I should wear lipstick too" or "You fit in my skin, softest I've let in" as guitarist/vocalist Sheena Ozzella's dynamic, melodic voice guides the unlikely chorus.
Lemuria might not sound like they are from Buffalo, NY, but the band was proudly birthed there, following the legacy of an oddly eclectic, if not eccentric, music scene. When you loosen your ears to the sugary indie-pop, you'll discover discordant notes, odd time signatures, and brutal riffs creating menacing yet catchy music.
Releasing their early 7" EPs and splits on drummer/vocalist Alex Kerns' label 'Art of the Underground', they landed their debut full length 'Get Better' on west coast pop-punk label Asian Man Records. Following their debut, and worked into an ambitious DIY touring schedule, they sprinkled 7" releases around on labels such as Hex, No Idea Records, and Suburban Home. Eventually, they would settle in with the Boston-based, notoriously hardcore oriented Bridge 9 Records with their 2011 sophomore album, 'Pebble'.
Since 2004, Lemuria has developed a cult following of fans who have found a branch to grab onto. Their lyrics have been carved into their fans skin permanently. Their songs have become personal anthems, game changers, wedding vows and breakup manifestos
Entering the studio soon, expect a triumph from indie darlings Lemuria in 2013.
Daylight was formed in the late winter of 2007,there they began writing their first songs which would end up on their Demo and later on an EP called Sinking, released on Get This Right Records in August of 2009. From there the band began touring throughout the east coast and mid west. Later that year, the band ventured overseas to tour in Australia. After their return they began recording their 2nd EP entitled Dispirit, released in July of 2010 on Six Feet Under Records. 2010 was the bands first full US tour, they toured out west to play the Sound & Fury Festival, and headed back east playing shows with Transit along the way. After they returned home from the tour they began writing again for a new release. In 2011, the band took their first trip to Europe to tour with Basement and Hostage Calm. With no intention of slowing down, the band had various tours with Bone Without Bones, Daytrader, Seahaven and Basement throughout the rest of that year. In early 2012, they released a new EP entitled The Difference In Good and Bad Dreams released on Run For Cover Records. At this time, the band had a lineup change and acquired a new drummer. 2012 would be the year the band would write their first full length LP. From there, the band took to a heavier touring schedule, including various US and European tours with such acts as More Than Life, The World Is A Beautiful Place and I Am No Longer Afraid To Die, Dead End Path, Soul Search and Basement. When they weren't touring they were spending time writing the rest of their record. Daylight consists of Taylor Madison and Jake Clarke on guitars and vocals, Joe Kane on bass, and Zack Robbins on drums. The band is set to debut their first full length LP entitled Jar on Run For Cover Records in the spring of 2013.
