Boy Hits Car
Made up of CRegg Rondell (Vocals & Acoustic 12 String Guitar), Mike (Guitar), Bill Gower (Bass), and Drummer Johnny Ransom, former Wind-UP Records recording artists BOY HITS CAR are known for playing the sickest, loveliest, ugliest, prettiest, most beautiful, melodic, heartfelt music that the band dubs "LoveCore". Their self-titled debut album was released in 2001 and included the hit single "I'm a Cloud."
These Los Angeles natives have toured with System of a Down, Incubus, Papa Roach, and Flyleaf to name a few, and were featured on the 2001 SnoCore Tour, as well as a few dates on the '06 SnoCore tour w/Seether and Shinedown. Haven gained a reputation of having one of the most powerful and captivating live shows, the boys have also made their way through Europe on their own headlining tours and played main stage slots at European festivals such as Reading and Leeds in England and Germany's Rock Am Rink and Rock Im Park, to name a few.
Their new album "The Passage", (self-financed/co. produced), features the single 'Escape the World', which was added to Atlanta's most cutting edge modern rock radio station, 105.3 'The Buzz', and without the help of any record company, managed to climb to #2 as the most requested song!!! When you hear track 3 off "The Passage", (officially released stateside in summer of 2006 through Rock Ridge Music), you'll see why...
SERIS ~ Farewell Show (The Penguin and Pineapple's Last Dance)
Seris - a Denver-based math-metal quartet with ambitions far exceeding the Denver local.
Drummer Robert Jepsen (ex-Downtied) first teamed-up with guitarist Scott Beckman (ex-Saoshyant), and began formulating the musical concepts of an odd-time and rhythm-based project in early 2009. Bassist Cody Goodman, then-bassist of Congress of the Crow, joined the two as a dynamic addition to the initial incarnation, and the trio spent several months fine-tuning their sound while patiently awaiting the perfect front man. That "front man", to the trio's surprise, came in the form of a charismatic and versatile front woman. Vocalist Melati Olivia, known in the local scene for her performances with Choke the Word, became the last piece to the puzzle, and the voice to bridge the gap between an uncompromising, poly-metric brutality and a beautiful-yet-powerful accessibility. The result of this combination is a modern style of metal whose musicality and technicality blend seamlessly into a focused and emotionally-provocative sound. Avid lovers of Tool, Meshuggah and early Mudvayne alike have a new band to which they can pledge their unwavering allegiance.
Ambitious right out of the gate - recording their first demo at Colorado's most premiere recording studio, the Blasting Room (Rise Against, The Flobots, and Tickle Me Pink) and coupled with playing their first shows at Denver's elite theaters, Seris will no doubt garner positive local attention, and will use Denver as a jumping board to the national level.
Stay tuned. They're gonna be big!
Give all you are, or give no more. Not just a lyric, but a living mantra for the future champions of modern rock, the ferocious Novus Folium. The Denver sextet has captured the hearts of their hometown and now find themselves looking beyond.
Few bands in the Rocky Mountain region have enjoyed the type of success that Novus Folium can boast over the last two years, yet in their eyes they have only just begun. When the defunct Step Down decided to reform and collectively turn over a 'new leaf', they took on their Latin handle of the same meaning. Each change of the seasons since has brightened the future for the gem of Colorado's rock scene. In the fall of 2010, Novus dominated the field of KBPI's Best Band In Denver contest to claim the powerhouse rock radio station's title on the advice of guest judge Shawn Crahan (better known as Clown from Slipknot). This victory opened the door for the band to throw tantalizing performances in support of Korn, Papa Roach, Drowning Pool and others in between headlining their own shows in the mile high city. Despite the bright lights the band has stayed grounded using their new found popularity to raise money for numerous local and national charities of varying interest, often forfeiting their entire paycheck as well as proceeds from merchandise. In the spring of 2011 they made history by becoming the first act ever to hold both of the city's musical crowns when they won Westword magazine's Best of The West contest, an intense battle royal spanning the genres and including all of Denver's finest acts. While the passion-soaked performances have won the adoration of the fans, it was the band's songwriting and unique sound that caught the attention of Jeff Kanan, the platinum record award winning producer and engineer who has worked with the likes of Madonna, No Doubt, and Busta Rhymes. Teaming with Kanan the band recorded their debut full length album, War Games, and plan to release the record independently June 25th, 2011. The band intends to tour the U.S. extensively in support of the album in the coming months. Ambitious and relentless, Novus Folium has its sights set at the top of the genre and beyond.
Gravity Lies is a band poised to take the world by storm. Their infectious brand of hard rock has been capturing the ears of all who hear. The band strives to bring a unique sound that stands apart from the cookie-cutter bands on rock radio today. Thick textures, and layer upon layer of guitars create a powerful wall of sound topped by the band's strong melodies. Pop sensibilities, combined with a subtle progressive rock influence, and a dash of metal create a new combination of sound that is both catchy and heavy at the same time.
The year 2015 sees the band returning with a strong new lineup, and approaching the completion of their debut “Fight The Darkness”. This twelve song rock opus showcases the band’s diversity, and solid songwriting. The band is the brainchild of prominent Denver producer/engineer, Brian Knop (Your Own Medicine, Lost Point, A Memory Down, etc), who is joined by shredder Jeff Swanson, drummer Dave Dyer, bassist Matt Orloff and guitarist/vocalist Tim Crowe.
