For the Wolf
For the Wolf is an Alternative dark punk-rock band from Tulsa, Oklahoma. Combining a love of horror with stoner metal influences, For the Wolf has a macabre sound that will thrill children of the night and ignite Halloween dancefloors.
Kristy Emory (vocals) and husband Coby Emory (guitar) proved that blood is thicker than water when the band formed in 2010, alongside Rockey Jackson (drums), Jeremy Mullis (guitar, brother to Kristy) and James Thomas (bass) Bonding over a love of Return of the Living Dead and Night of the Demons and bands like Black Sabbath and Deftones, For the Wolf has been electrifying fans ever since.
For the Wolf's first EP, Floating Through The Veins And The Power Of The Wolf, was released in 2011, followed by the full-length album Hi, Tapes! In 2012. After signing to HorrorHound Records in 2014 they released their sophomore album, Turn On The Dark. The band provides the theme song for KMOD's Big Mad Morning Show and recorded the ominous anthem, Aethyr, for the Nowata Asylum Haunted House in 2012. Having opened for bands like Powerman 5000, Glass Cloud, Calabrese, Harley Poe, Koffin Kats, and Single Mothers, For the Wolf create alternative punk, with teeth.
After two years of touring the Midwest, Southwest, West Coast and playing festivals such as Rocklahoma and SXSW, Tulsa based quartet Sleepwalking Home have teamed up with producer C.J. Cochran(Standby Records, Outline in Color) to record their second EP “Army Of Skin." Sleepwalking Home's sophomore effort is highly ambitious, more aggressive and emotive than their previous releases. Drawing from the spirit of the NOH8 movement Sleepwalking Home have written an album that screams in the face of bullies and promotes a theme of hope and self empowerment.
The self titled track from the album "Army Of Skin" is an anthem targeted to those who are enduring the hardships of dealing with hate, bullying and lack of equality due to their gender, race, sexual orientation etc.
"We want to reach out to those who are dealing with discrimination because of who and how they choose to love, and let them know it DOES get better. We are rooting for you," said Lead Vocalist Michelle Ameen.
"We have poured every bit of ourselves into this album. We not only have something to say, but we want to help inspire others and help them find their own voice," said Ameen.
Recently described as a breath of fresh air, this piano driven, female fronted rock band is positioned to break out in the mid-west. Keep an eye out for them around Oklahoma and surrounding states...
Imagine members of Paramore and Green Day fighting to the death with only the strongest surviving - Those remaining are Hey!Dollface; ready to entrance bystanders with unlimited energy, body-shaking grooves, and a pink-haired singer who stays in tune.
Music makes the world spin.
Since the beginning of recorded history, musicians have graced the masses with art. Most artists strive for years to reach inside someone with a medium and reconstruct their whole state of existence beyond a level previously unattainable.
That state of existence can be materialized as a soul; something we each have that is as unique as each star in the sky. Encapsulating that soul is something just as unique: You. So, in ways, one could say that Bria Edwards, Fabian Robles, Daniel Rodriguez, and Casper Guinn comprised Hey!Dollface for You.
Music is ever-evolving, like all of us Earth inhabitants. The band's music revolves around our life experiences, both verbally and sonically. Some composites are vibrant and energetic staccatos of personal strength while others are the lullabies of sweet, confident accomplishment.
Each member puts a piece of life into the songs until a body is created from art. This body acts as the vessel to reach inside of You and let the passion of music rest lightly on one's state of existence. The Heartbeat lays the foundation for all the rhythms and cycles that reside within the body, The Soul bridges the gap between the physical and spiritual by resonance, and The Voice speaks the mind, heart, and soul of the now-alive entity.
This is the music that makes the world go 'round.
This is the soul that fills the lifeless dolls.
This is the vessel that the artists use to bridge the mind and soul.
So it is for this we say:
