Watch & Listen
Jonny Craig began his singing career between the ages of 16-17 as the lead vocalist for Seattle based post-hardcore band Ghost Runner on Third in 2002.He received early praise with this new band’s debut EP, Speak Your Dreams. Allmusic.com stated that Craig was quote: “the band’s secret weapon, a passionate vocalist who doesn’t rely on the usual emo techniques (belligerent screaming, post-hardcore barking, whiny moralizing — that sort of thing) to put across his angsty lyrics. There’s not a bad track to be found here, but Craig tends to outshine his bandmates throughout.
Hailing from sunny San Diego, CA, SECRETS has already made an impact as one of the most promising up and coming acts in the scene. Armed with irresistibly catchy choruses, soaring vocals, and mercilessly dynamic breakdowns, its no wonder the post-hardcore five-piece has seen such success since signing to Velocity/Rise Records in the Spring of 2011.
Velocity Records’ Dave Shapiro says, "When I heard these songs, I knew San Diego had yet another band that would be at the forefront of their genre." Rise Records’ founder Craig Ericson is equally pumped on the signing, explaining, "Dave showed me the band and I immediately knew these guys were keepers.”
SECRETS released their debut full length The Ascent (Produced by Tom Denney) in January of 2012 to rave reviews. The record debuted at #3 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and became the first Velocity Records release to crack the Billboard Top 200, debuting at #185. SECRETS has toured heavily since the release of The Ascent, supporting such as Sleeping With Sirens, Attack Attack!, Escape The Fate, as well as appearing on the entire Scream It Like You Mean it tour this Summer. They will be hitting the UK and Europe this October with Of Mice and Men and Memphis May Fire before returning to the states in November and December with Woe Is, Me, and Chunk! No Captain Chunk!
HEARTS & HANDS
Timing is everything and Bleach Blonde is fast on the path to success. Featuring Danny Stillman and Danny Cooper of Drop Dead Gorgeous, after officially founding the band less than six months ago, in August of 2012, the group has already written their first EP and inked a record deal with Rise Records.
Fronted by lead vocalist Danny "Stills" Stillman, Bleach Blonde came together when the Denver based singer began writing via email with guitarist David Barella and drummer Danny Cooper, who lived in LA at the time. A month later, the trio joined forces with guitarist Michael Payne and bass player Coty Eikenberg. The five members officially formed Bleach Blonde, a name reminiscent of shared memories in Venice Beach and an homage to Nirvana.
Stills says the group has found inspiration for their "mainstream sound with an underground twist. We aim to think outside of the box and strive for a sound that we can call our own."
After signing with Rise Records in late 2012, the group plans to record their debut full length with Kris Crummett (Drop Dead Gorgeous, Dance Gavin Dance) and "take over the world," jokes Stills.
