Taking Back Sunday

With one platinum and two gold albums in their 5 album repertoire, Taking Back Sunday has been fortunate enough to tour the world with some of the biggest names in rock music including Linkin Park, Blink-182, Faith No More and Green Day to name a few. They have also performed on the main stage of some of the world's biggest festivals including Reading and Leeds (UK), Soundwave (Australia), Summer Sonic (Japan), Bamboozle (US) and 2007's global Live Earth where they shared the Giants Stadium, New Jersey stage with Bon Jovi and The Police.

They have had multiple top 5 Billboard Soundscan debuts, Top 10 alternative radio hits, tons of video airplay along with an MTV Woodie Award, received rave reviews in major publications from Rolling Stone to Spin to People and have been lucky enough to perform on every major nightly talk show including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Show with David Letterman and Late Night with Conan O'Brien.
Somehow the band still finds time to put out smaller ep releases and devote some of their time to raising money for various Cancer Charities. Taking Back Sunday is; Adam Lazzara (lead vocals) John Nolan (guitar, vocals) Eddie Reyes (rhythm guitar) Shaun Cooper (bass guitar) and Mark O'Connell (drums.)

Polar Bear Club

Polar Bear Club is an American post-hardcore/indie rock band from Syracuse, upstate New York. Formed in 2005, the band currently consists of vocalist Jimmy Stadt, lead guitarist Chris Browne, rhythm guitarist Nate Morris, bass guitarist Erik Michael "Goose" Henning and drummer Emmett Menke.

"I know you're good at keeping secrets.Well I'm better at wearing them out for the world to see."

"Music is about connecting with people, and that's what we focus on more than anything else," says Transit's vocalist Joe Boynton. Natives of north shore Boston, Transit is a band that displays an arresting degree of honesty and individuality in their music. While clearly drawing inspiration from seminal groups such as Lifetime and Saves The Day, as well as the Northeast US pop-punk and hardcore scenes that all five members grew up in, Transit has swiftly evolved into a group with a more alternative, indie rock sound. "We all grew up listening to a wide variety of music, but bands like Archers of Loaf, Braid, Osker and American Football demonstrated to us that there are always refreshing ways to create a new style and feel," explains guitarist Tim Landers. Illustrating Transit's artistic evolution from one release to the next, early descriptions of the group compared them to Taking Back Sunday and Brand New, and now, more recently, to bands like Death Cab For Cutie and Modest Mouse.

The band's prolific output is also impressive by any measure, having put out seven releases over the last four years. Transit's highly acclaimed LP, "Keep This To Yourself", released in August 2010 on Run For Cover Records, inspired Absolutepunk to rave: "Good luck keeping Transit's passionate and infectious tunes a secret. Once you hear the first chords of opener "Dear Anyone," you'll immediately go out and tell all your friends about the best pop-punk album of 2010."

Transit has toured throughout North America and overseas alongside Fireworks, Hostage Calm, Balance and Composure, Less Than Jake, Such Gold, A Loss For Words, Man Overboard, Senses Fail, The Wonder Years and many others.
