Eken is Dead
EKEN IS DEAD (say it like wreck, not eek) is a Los Angeles, CA based four-piece hard rock alternative/metal act. Since it's inception at the end of 2007, EKEN IS DEAD has been on a mission of absolute domination. In two years, members Eric Almanza, Vic Arevalo, Jack Espinoza, and Chris Navarrete have earned a well deserved reputation throughout the scene based on professionalism and commitment to excellence. Whether an intimate local show or a packed House of Blues, EKEN IS DEAD has consistently brought their high intensity and charismatic presence to every single one of their 115+ shows. In addition to the relentless live schedule for which they have toured both regionally and internationally, EKEN IS DEAD has independently produced an EP, "The Dead Ascend", full length LP, "Amendment.", and videos for the songs "Condition" and "Lights Out". Even then, the promotional efforts are non stop with the introduction of an ever expanding merchandise line, thousands of giveaways, and an online presence that grows stronger by the day. EKEN IS DEAD's "No Retreat, No Surrender" attitude in all they take on is evident as everyday is treated as an opportunity. They continue to grow musically while sharing stages with the biggest acts all over the region and turning on new listeners, all without ever compromising their integrity as musicians or humans. It is this commitment that sets them apart.
IT'S A LONG STORY
With the original members Dicky and Erick, the band has survived the years to accomplish many great achievements such as playing Warped Tour 2013 and releasing an EP that defines the band for all who listen. Over time the band has acquired Alex, Nick, and Robb to make a solid band and friendship that will strive forward to achieve many more goals and dreams down the road. The band will soon, this Fall, go on tour to prove they have what it takes to be professional musicians, making as many Friends and Fans along the way!
Inept Hero was formed back in 2007. Four guys got together in hopes to win a battle of the bands at Mesa High School. So what happened? well, they didn't win first- but came in second and Five years, and a lot of work later, they have turned into four amazing artists, and one very talented band creating and fine tuning their unique sound of punk rock, reggae, and a little bit of hard core.
