Tuscaloosa, Alabama brings us Gideon, an aggressive, melodic hardcore band with an already impressive repertoire. Well-placed gang vocals and a powerful front man set Gideon apart from many of their peers, while the band as a whole, whose members have been playing together only since 2008, come off sounding like seasoned pros. Their Facedown debut "Costs" (engineered by Brian Hood) will be released on March 1, 2011 and will be supported by non stop touring including Facedown Fest in Pomona, CA (April) and Cornerstone Festival in Bushnell, IL (July).
Wolves At The Gate
Wolves At The Gate is made up of four individuals who live to create passionate music for passionate people. After forming in the tiny town of Cedarville, Ohio in April of 2008, the guys have played countless shows in the Tri-State area, performing with bands such as Oh, Sleeper, Emarosa, Greeley Estates and Oceana, among others. They have won several major contests, earning them the rights to play with Bring Me The Horizon, Thursday, Four Year Strong and others during the 2009 Taste Of Chaos Tour stop in Cincinnati, OH, as well as sharing the stage with Saosin, Innerparty System, P.O.S. and others during the Columbus, OH date of the 2009 PacTour. The band was also hand-picked to play the 2010 Cornerstone Festival in Bushnell, Illinois. After releasing several demos in 2008 and 2009, the band is poised to release their debut EP in early 2011, which was engineered, mixed and mastered by Tyler Smyth of the Fearless Records band Let's Get It. Through their mission to "show the incredible love of God to every person we come in contact with", WATG strongly believes that "the salvation message of the Gospel is free to everyone, and our primary purpose on this earth is to spread that message to everyone we meet." Needless to say, WATG is gearing up for an exciting and action-packed 2011!
Fit For A King
Fit For A King is a five-piece Metalcore outfit from Tyler, Texas. A driven attitude, creative minds and a "do it yourself" mentality has quickly set them apart among other bands on the independent circuit. Fit For A King is now touring full time in the U.S has been making a strong internet presence between the "MySpace era" and now. The band released their first full length record in September 2011 called "Descendants." Along with the album came the music video "Ancient Waters" which has broke out to 500,000 + view on YouTube. Fit For A King's Sophomore release will be out March 12, 2013, on Solid State Records. They will head out on tour with Oh, Sleeper following the release.
The Great Commission
The Great Commission hails from Southern California. They have released 2 albums, "Every Knee Shall Bow" (Facedown Records) and "Heavy Worship" (ANGR/Century Media Records). They have done countless amounts of National Tours with such bands as Demon Hunter, Oceano, For Today, Maylene & The Sons of Disaster and more; as well as being regulars on many summer festivals such as: Cornerstone, California Metal Fest, Sonshine, Ichthus, and New England Metal & Hardcore Festival. They've made a name for themselves as one of the "Heaviest, Catchiest" bands out today.
With their relentless touring schedule and their incredible live show, they have been taking the nation by storm. They most recently caught the eye of Taylor Swift and were asked to be featured in her new music video "I Knew You Were Trouble" which can be seen here:
Everyone Dies In Utah
Formed in early 2008, Everyone Dies In Utah underwent a partial member change later that year becoming the band they are today and have since excelled rapidly beyond their expectations. The name "Everyone Dies In Utah" began as a joke in the beginning, but stuck with them through time. Historically, the death rate in Utah was once higher than any other state. Hence, "Everyone Dies In Utah". Within the next year, E.D.I.U. has shared the stage with many famous bands. With an EP release in early June 2009, they've gathered a strong fan base in such a short amount of time and have only just begun.
To all of our fans: All of you mean the world to us and we thank you for all the support you have given us. We couldn't do any of this without you. Each and every one of you play an important part in our lives so if you ever need to talk, feel free to message us on MySpace or talk to us at any one of our shows. We are very sociable people, and we're eager to listen to anything you have to say!
Our music consists of a mixture of Techno Synthetics, Hardcore Dance Rhythms, and a hint of Melodic Lyrical Stanzas thrown together to cohere with the progressive growth of the minds of a new generation. Cherried by unruly titles, our music is meant to make your feet move and your hearts beat to the sound of a rhythm.
Our songs are written to be inspirational to everyone who hears them. We are only Human and we all face difficult times in our lives. We will continue to try to help people through their own situations with our words in music. Feel free to listen as much as you want. We thank all of you, again.
This is only the beginning, and what a beginning it has been. After all, we all step on that stage with one sole purpose: To share our love for music with the world!
When speaking with the members of Arkansas hard rock outfit THE OVERSEER, one phrase comes up time and time again: "In the moment." But it's not because the hotly tipped band wants to focus on the here-and-now. It's because they want to transcend it.
It's become something of a mission statement for the band, the desire to make music that can elevate, that can transport the listener to a place that's emotionally honest ... and that can stir up one hell of a mess in the moshpit, as anyone who's heard their artfully pummeling riffage, savage breakdowns and vocal cord-rupturing vocals can attest. "I'd like to say that the music we write is more than just 'in the moment,'" says vocalist Anthony Rivera. "We're looking to write something that stands the test of time, that people can look back on and still enjoy 10 years from now."
Drawing inspiration from likeminded artists such as THRICE, UNDEROATH and AS I LAY DYING, THE OVERSEER delivers hard-hitting, uncompromising hard rock that belies the members' young age. This isn't "cash in on the latest trend" music, it's "sweat and tears" hard rock, with a little blood thrown in for good measure.
Showing they've got the work ethic as well as the talent it takes to make it in the musical big-leagues, THE OVERSEER have proven themselves to be completely devoted to the rock and roll life, even when it meant hitting the road for 400 grueling days in the last two years as an unsigned band. The relentless push to connect with fans around the country has been a dynamic and rewarding experience for the band - if not always glamorous. "There's really nothing like sleeping in a van in a different Walmart parking lot every night and showering once a week - or less," laughs bassist Bradley Riggs. "Touring is a challenge, but it makes it a lot easier when you can do it with guys who you completely trust in life. We've seen the world together and been through a lot, both great and terrible. We probably know each other better than we know ourselves."
All of that hard work paid off when the band achieved one of the goals the members had set from the beginning - getting signed to Solid State Records, home to so many of the bands that indirectly helped to shape THE OVERSEER's sound. With the ink still drying on the deal, the band set out to do what it does best - work hard. The members headed into Atlanta's Glow in the Dark Studios with Matt McClellan to record an as-yet-untitled debut album - the first taste of which was released to fans in January 2012 in the form of the hard-hitting lead single "Secrets."
Once the album is complete, it will be time for THE OVERSEER to do the OTHER thing they do best: Tour, tour and tour, taking their music and their spiritually-minded message to eager fans. "I expect great things to happen for us over the next few years. We believe in hard work and hopefully we can leave an impression on a our listeners and maybe become a musical influence to them in the future," Riggs says. "We know our most exciting days on the road are to come, and that keeps us moving forward."
Forget living "in the moment." THE OVERSEER are living for the future, and it looks like a bright one indeed.
Those Who Fear
Born and raised in the Pennsylvania Rust Belt, Those Who Fear are coming out swinging with the blue collar work ethic of their hometown, Pittsburgh, PA staunchly ingrained in them. Their brand of east coast hardcore comes at you like a wall of sound, and Those Who Fear make no apologies for the message behind the music. "The power behind our message is our main drive. Without that we'd be just another band."
Those Who Fear self-released an EP in 2011 and hit the road hard, touring all over the US. Now the band finds themselves exploring the darker side of faith and ideology, writing and recording their debut full length Unholy Anger. This newest effort was recorded with Josh Schroeder at Random Awesome Studios (A Plea For Purging, The Burial). "Having worked with Josh on the Legacy EP, he knows how we work and really pushed us to get the best record we could in the time we had. Long 10 hour days, but we all believe it was well worth it."
Those Who Fear will release Unholy Anger with Facedown Records on February 5, 2013.
