HESSLER, under extremely difficult and hazardous conditions, must through vicious determination execute their mission by any means necessary so as to set them apart and above other units in the same war.
HESSLER is a Chicago based, female fronted heavy metal band boasting a deadly twin guitar attack. Since the release of the Bad Blood E.P. in 2011, HESSLER have toured nationally and released five music videos. 2012 performances including SXSW & Rocklahoma shaped the band for their first full-length album "Comes With the Territory". After the album release on November 27, 2012, the band embarked on a U.S. Tour in support.
A return to SXSW 2013 kicked off a new month long U.S. Tour followed by a return performance at Rocklahoma w/ Guns N' Roses, Alice in Chains, Korn, and many more. In 2013, the band took home the Chicago Reader award for "Best Metal Band". HESSLER provided music for the first documentary on legendary wrestler "The Dynamite Kid" Tom Billington.
Following a successful series of summer festive performances, a new music video was released through Revolver Magazine.
After completing a 25 show coast-to-coast U.S. tour, HESSLER brought in a new lead singer, San Antonio native and 2012 X-Factor contestant, Jessikill. The band recently recorded new music and released a new video on February 21st. A Maxi-single release and US Dates in support start on March 20, 2014 with a kick off at Double Door.
Lola… Black… on the streets, Lola means strong woman usually of Spanish decent. From the alleys, and stages of Denver Colorado , Lola Black is an alchemist of punk, metal, melodic riffs, and attitude! The instant Lola walks out on stage you begin to understand that sugar, spice and everything nice were never things she was made of. Her 5'4" Spanish frame is all tits, tats and everything Black. An undeniable presence on stage that leaves most men quoting the last few lines of an erectile dysfunction ad, and most women questioning which band member of the 5 they'd rather go home with!
This blend of focused chaos was formed in August of 2008. Since their arrival upon the Denver music scene, Lola Black has become THE band in Colorado . Numerous features, and write ups in Colorado Music Buzz, Westword, Denver Post and Reviews in national publications like Hollywood Music Magazine. Winner of "Best punk Band" in 2010, Lola and company are now exploring a darker shade of black with the Release of DIA DE LOS BORRACHOS'. The release of this cd in Jan 2012 had one of the country's signature Active Rock Stations (106.7 KBPI) add Borracho into regular rotation! Something national acts struggle to accomplish over months, a local band did in weeks! Lola Black closed out 2012 by capturing the title for 106.7 KBPI's Best Band in Denver for 2013 and being labeled as one of Denver's Top 5 Break out acts by CBS Denver. Make No Mistake about Lola Black, this is a band about to erupt. The bottled fury called Black has a bold raw sound, filled with seasoned lyrics of passion, life, pursuit of a party and take no shit attitude! LOVE HER or HATE THEM, Lola Black is a band you will NEVER forget.
