During the boom of the mid-90's, Detroit based alternative rock band went Top 5 on the charts with songs, "Plowed" and "Molly (16 Candles)." With their catchy hooks and bone crunching riffs, the band went platinum on their debut album, Rotting Piñata. They are one of the most sought after live acts around and have been seen sharing the stage with such mega-artists as Guns N' Roses, Nickelback, Iggy Pop, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, and Kiss. Sponge is now touring in support of a brand new release Stop the Bleeding.
Your Ghost is an American rock band from West Chester, PA formed in 2009 by Austin Gray [Vocals/Guitar] and Josh Giannone [Bass/Vocals]. The addition of Dillon Piersol [Drums] in 2012 rounded out the 3-Piece lineup. Your Ghost blends pop melodies with heavy overtones to create a reminiscent sound that has earned the band comparisons to Nirvana and The White Stripes. Their uncanny song crafting coupled with high intensity live performances make Your Ghost something to experience.
Your Ghost released a demo E.P. in Fall 2011 available for free download. They began recording their debut full-length album in early 2012.

" If Nirvana married The White Stripes and had a super baby, you would have YOUR GHOST. The vocals are the bands signature; their haunting whispers, backed by their fierce and at times a little unsettling (in that good way) bass riffs captivate an audience.
Rock & Roll is still very much alive. You can feel it in the raw energy of Desoto Jones, a band which blends contemporary sound with the roots of American Rock.
The ragged intensity of Desoto Jones is reminiscent of the early days of grunge and alternative, but is also pleasantly sophisticated; the band skillfully fuses ear-grabbing melodies with soulful, introspective lyrics. Their music is an inquest of candid expression, but the band doesn't try to wax philosophic; its lyrics grow from real, relatable experiences.
Desoto Jones' DIY work ethic has paid dividends. Recently, the band's music has been featured on MTV programming such as, "Jersey Shore" and "The Challenge: Battle of the Exes" through an innovative partnership with MTV-affiliated Hype Music. In addition, the band has previously shared the stage with artists such as Spacehog, Anchor & Braille (members of Anberlin), Schematic (members of Mae), A Simple Plan, Candlebox, Carolina Liar, and Ed Kowalczyk (of Live).
The new album, Shapeshifter, is the result of a successful Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign. Fans can expect an album with no bells or whistles, no dance beats, and no synthesizers to add artificial flourishes to the band's straightforward delivery. With guitars, bass, drums and soaring vocals, it's just straight-up rock music.
