Maylene & The Sons of Disaster
Maylene and the Sons of Disaster is a southern rock/metal band. They formed in 2004 in Birmingham, Alabama and began touring the southern United States. In 2005, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster signed to Mono vs. Stereo and released their self-titled debut, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster.
Maylene and the Sons of Disaster's II was released on Ferret Records nationwide on March 20, 2007.
Maylene's third album, III, was released on June 23, 2009. The song Just A Shock was released to the band's MySpace page on May 11th, 2009. III debuted at #71 on the Billboard 200.
Dallas Taylor is the most notable member of Maylene and the Sons of Disaster. He was the original vocalist for the metalcore/post-hardcore band Underoath until late 2003.
The band name and concept are based on the legend of the criminal gang of Ma Barker and her sons, noting that evil lifestyles will be met with "divine justice".
Genre-bending reggae/rock band Lionize have announced that they will release Superczar and The Vulture, their fifth album, and first on the Pentimento Music Company label on 12/6/11, with distribution by Redeye. The release sees Lionize heading back to Magpie Cage Recording Studio (Against Me!, The Promise Ring, Murder By Death) to record with the legendary J. Robbins. On it, they weave together 70s-influenced heavy psych rock riffs with reggae grooves and deeply soulful vocals, resulting in a record that both challenges and embraces the genres where it finds its roots.
Lionize spent this past summer as stand-outs on the Vans Warped Tour, and followed that success with a string of dates across the United States co-headlining with friends Larry and His Flask. This fall sees the band once again on the road, touring the country with labelmates Streetlight Manifesto, Rodeo Ruby Love and friends Reel Big Fish. You can view dates at the bottom of the page. Lionize are no strangers to the touring life, having spent the better past of the last decade touring virtually non-stop with the likes of Bad Brains, Clutch, Steel Pulse, and CKY among numerous others.
The Sun The Moon The Stars
Have you ever tried to find someone who was already gone? taken off to another world, another plane, another dimension? time travel--space travel--alternate universe. it becomes increasingly difficult to catch them once they have dematerialized. sometimes you still have some things to tell them--get something off your chest. emotions, stories, ideas and philosophies. waves can creep their way in and out of all areas. under the right circumstances we can hear them, feel them, see them, touch them, and smell them. the sun the moon the stars. coming from the vast offerings of new jersey there is no clear pigeon hole. heavy, dark, sleazy smoked out riffs with a skeleton of hard thick pounding drums and beer battered rusty in your face vocals. from the swamps to theforest, exploration in psychedelics to long nights at the bar, the sun the moon the stars offers vibrations for all senses.
Baby Brother is a Brooklyn based, rock, rhythm and blues group with super infused punk-country undertones. Lead singer and guitarist Jeremy Beazlie fronts a whopping group backed by lead guitarist and Texas born and raised Vincent Vitek, and from Seattle, Ian Hardie on drums and Ben Longwell on the bass. Hard, fun, kick you in the gut rock and roll for all ages, provided that you're used to a little profanity here and there, Baby Brother want's nothing more than to blow back your hair, and melt your pretty face. They're not asking you to leave anyone, they just want a little bit of your time. A new band looking to expand and re-mine rock origins, Baby Brother has such influences as: The White Stripes, Screaming Females, Bob Dylan, Junior Brown, BR-549, Queens of the Stone Age, Johnny Cash, John Lennon, and Nirvana. They work hard, and if you don't know them, they play hard. Strap yer boots for a show with songs of spooky ghost tales, uplifting rockers, tales of betrayal, abuse and...love? Baby Brother runs the gamut and so should you, so nod yer head, tap yer feet, and for God's sake, shake Yerbouti.
