This Philadelphia born and bred rock quartet is built on a foundation of driving rhythms and powerful choruses. The band recently recorded their debut EP "Lionhearted" with up and coming producer Will Yip (Circa Survive, Title Fight, CKY). "Lionhearted," which is slated for an early March release, is a strong debut effort that is as honest as it is melodic, and paves the way for Walls to make major strides in 2013.
Sheep and The Shears
Sheep And The Shears is an American experimental rock and post hardcore band from Reading, Pennsylvania. Formed in 2009 as a solo project of Andrew Colosimo (Seconds From the End, Alice's Adventures) the project grew to include drummer Brent Caltagirone (This Or The Apocalypse, Alice's Adventures). The duo recorded their first EP in the summer of 2011 with sound engineer Alex Koppenheffer (Seconds From The End, Ace Augustine) before Zachary Fore (ex-Alice's Adventures) and Matt Marcellus (This Or The Apocalypse completed the band's lineup. Their music can be described as strongly post-rock and post-hardcore influenced with atmospheric guitars, free-ranging drums and dense vocal harmonies. The band's musical influences span from Neoclassicism to Buddy Rich to modern post-rock and post-hardcore music such as Godspeed! You Black Emperor, Fugazi and At The Drive-In
The KillTones started as Josh Pilot and Clinton Vearil in 2010. Having been good friends for some years they decided to start a project with the vision of a band that "howled the very essence of what rock n' roll once was and still should be."
After two years of writing, playing shows, and recording The Killtones have grown and taken shape in the form of a four-man project that is ready to make a dent in the way people experience rock music.
