BROTHERLY BREAKDOWN FEST
Shane Henderson & The Future Perfect
The new project from Valencia singer Shane Henderson. This time Shane has teamed up with Trevor Leonard, and Will Noon (Fun, Straylight Run) to bring you the Future Perfect.
For those who have been fortunate enough to witness Shane Henderson and his various projects through the years, know there is one underlying factor which keeps him moving; his undeniable passion. Now with his new band The Future Perfect, Shane plans to re-light that fire he has worked so hard for over the better part of the last decade. “This project for me was all about being creative and not having any barriers holding me back. Whatever comes out musically is what it will be.” For Shane Henderson and The Future Perfect, this project was about having control of their sound and creating an atmosphere which represented them best, “The studio is a safe place for me, it is really one of the only locations I feel comfortable.”
Fans are familiar with Henderson’s heart wrenching lyrics, now together with an all-star line up consisting of Will Noon and Trevor Leonard; fans can expect the trio to reach heights they never have before. Henderson says,” I have always been one to write about life experiences, and that isn’t going to change.”
The group entered the studio DIY, with no label supporting to ensure total creativity. Henderson explains, “when I have the opportunity to create music that is 100 percent what I would do, I really thrive off of the creative freedom.” From this the band came up with their debut EP appropriately titled “Control.” You can feel that strong passion and determination through the EP and that’s just a short taste of what is to come.
Expect some new styles to be incorporated that fans may not be familiar hearing Henderson explore, however as always you can expect the project to be vocally driven. “I want to take this project to the next level, and get it into the hands of as many people I can,” says Henderson. Expect Shane Henderson and The Future Perfect to hit the road and continue to write and release new material. Shane explains, “it’s time to get back to work and show the world that I was meant to have a life in music, and nothing is going to stop me from continuing to grow as a musician.”
Finding Westerly is a 4-piece rock/alternative band hailing from Sicklerville, New Jersey. Since forming in 2002, FW has teamed up with producer/engineer Chris Badami of Portrait Recording Studios (The Starting Line/Jennifer Rostock/The Early November) and recently unveiled their long awaited full length LP "Rock and Roll Romance" in the summer of 2013. Finding Westerly brings a fresh sound of New Jersey rock and roll to the table with catchy choruses, shredding guitar licks, and an all around feel-good, positive vibe in their music. They have toured with such bands as Hidden in Plain View, the Early November, and Copeland and have played countless shows up and down the east coast while selling records all over the US and Europe. Now, with the perfect lineup and a live show that will leave you screaming for one more song, the band is set to do big things in 2013 and beyond...
Four Guys from the Suburbs of Philadelphia who came together in May of 2008 to create music! With former members of Committed and a member of Planes over Paris, this band is poised to hit the ground running and never look back.
Punk rock from Boston.
Man on a Mountain
Man On a Mountain is a 4 piece rock band from the greater Philadelphia area.
"Love or detest it, there's a pretty happenin' emo/screamo/pop-punk scene in Philly that only continues to grow, and local four-piece Adalie has vaulted near the top of that heap of bands just two years after forming. Taking its cues from Taking Back Sunday, Jimmy Eat World and Glassjaw, among others, Adalie brings high-pitched vocals, the occasional raw-throated yowl, buzzsaw guitars, a healthy dose of sweet melodies and catchy choruses ... a sound and vision that seems to charm the kids (and editors of Alternative Press magazine). It has already gotten them on tours like Warped and Taste of Chaos, and could make them one of Philly's breakout acts of 2010." - Philadelphia Weekly
Within & Without
Within & Without is a Progressive Post-Hardcore band from Blackwood, NJ. Founded in 2013, W&W was started by past members of popular South Jersey bands from all different genres. Their goal is to play music stemming from their influences in Thursday, Thrice, Silverstein and more progressive bands like Protest The Hero and Between the Buried and Me. This allowed them to bring everything together to make a unique sound of mix meters and breakdowns featuring consistent guitar work and driving drums, all of this backing power house vocals and screams.
The Kiera Plan
Since 2006, frontman and multi-instrumentalist Shawn O'Brien has worked to establish The Kiera Plan as one of the premier rock bands in the Philadelphia area, bringing his group's intense pop energy to every possible stage; from cafes and church halls, to legendary Philadelphia clubs, to the Susquehanna Bank Center for the 2009 Vans Warped Tour. The Kiera Plan's 2009 debut album Dedication brought the band's infectious sound to audiences worldwide. Produced by Vince Ratti (Zolof the Rock and Roll Destroyer, Valencia), Dedication is a passionate 11-song collection of powerful pop, filled with sing-along vocals, driving guitars, and melodic synth riffs. The album resonated with listeners, garnering The Kiera Plan both college and commercial radio airplay, and helping them win The Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands in the Philadelphia area in 2009. The buzz built steadily as The Kiera Plan performed live on Philadelphia's Radio 104.5, and started popping up everywhere online, from music blogs to internet radio.
2012 sees O'Brien taking The Kiera Plan into phase two, returning to the studio to record the follow-up to Dedication and to continuing to push the band's sound forward.
Only On Weekends
Out of Cherry Hill, NJ, Only on Weekends is excited to be back on stage again and is ready to share its music with anybody willing to listen. Some of their influences they cite are Blink 182, Brand New, Dashboard Confessional, Eve 6, Finch, and The Get Up Kids.
