For the Wolf
For the Wolf is an American 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 Noah Emory (drums, twin brother to Coby), Jeremy Mullis (guitar, brother to Kristy) and Rockey Jackson (bass, lifelong family friend) 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. The band provide 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 and Harley Poe, For the Wolf create alternative punk, with teeth.
Look out for the new album by For the Wolf, Turn on the Dark, from Horrorhounds Records in March - www.horrorhoundrecords.com. Turn on the Dark will be available to buy at the HorrorHound Weekend, March 21st to March 23rd 2014, where For the Wolf will join Calabrese, Harley Poe and the Creeping Cruds for an all night concert at Sharonville Convention Center.

With a barrage of adjectives and hyperbole, musicians describe themselves and seek to impress those unfamiliar with their work. Flowery expressions illustrate how their music transcends definition. This all, of course, is wasted space as ten seconds of a song can tell you more about a band than paragraphs will ever say.
Pretense aside, let us speak of Sleepwalking Home. A quintet from Tulsa, OK. The band consists of vocalist Michelle Ameen, guitarist Kenny Matthews, guitarist Justin Huggins, bassist Trey Landis and drummer/vocalist Nick Barton. Sleepwalking Home blends elements of Hardcore, Progressive and Pop to ride a balance between the aggressive and beautiful.
“To me it is all about showing the heavy and melodic.” Says Matthews, “I mean, there is no formula when we write a song, but somehow both sides are present when it is finished.”
There is an intelligence to the songwriting, while still maintaining unfettered energy and pop sensibility.
When asked to describe the music Ameen answered, “Our music, in a multitude of ways, sparks incredible emotion deep beneath our hard surfaces and lyrically it gives everybody something to relate to.”
Sleepwalking Home is a group of people who genuinely enjoy each other’s company and value each other’s opinion. The bi-product of which seems to be really good music.
There we have it. Sleepwalking Home. A few paragraphs of, almost, exaggeration free information, but you know the drill. Take a listen and see what you think. I am betting you will like what you hear.
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:
