Romance & Rebellion
"All American pop rockers Romance & Rebellion are the fastest growing addition of band trash eye candy to hit the LA market. Established in late 2015, the fresh faced five features David LaViola (Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar), Aaron Medina (Lead Guitar, Harmony Vocals), Aleksandr James (Auxiliary Guitar, Backing Vocals), Brandon Davis (Bass, Backing Vocals), and Kyle Jordan Mueller (Drums).
After the release of their self titled debut EP; two singles with respective music videos; dozens of articles; thousands of fans; and countless high energy live performances (which includes headlining L.A.’s EmoNite, and two showcases at the 2017 SXSW music conference), the band has cemented themselves in the scene by appearing main stage at this years Vans Warped Tour. As if that wasn’t enough, the Rebel Rockers kicked off summer to critical acclaim with the release of their new single "For A Moment", produced by Warren Huart (Hey Violet, 5SOS, Aerosmith, The Fray) and Stefan Litrownik (One Direction, Andy Grammer).
Sources say the group has tentative plans for a supporting tour in fall of 2017. With another EP already slated for release in January 2018, the 'buzz worthy' status surrounding R&R is growing and has fans cheering “LONG LIVE THE REBELLION!”
"The Fontaines are a new wave rock based in Los Angeles, California. Charlotte Fontaine (vocals) and Hank Fontaine (guitar) began writing new-wave influenced rock songs after growing up all over the world. The siblings are joined by Chrystian Kaplan (drums) and Daniel Zuker (bass).
In 2016 The Fontaines performed at music festivals including Savannah Stopover, Canadian Music Week, Broke LA, and Make Music Pasadena. Later that year the band released their new EP, "ii," which has gotten airplay on KROQ in Los Angeles. In February of 2017, The Fontaines released their new single "Evaporate". In March, the group made their official SXSW debut. Over the course of 2017 The Fontaines are releasing a series of new singles and EPs and touring the US - all without any outside assistance from a label, management, or a booking agent."
Flights Over Phoenix
"The love child of stadium rock and modern day pop, Flights Over Phoenix was formed in 2015 by singer/songwriter Keith Longo, guitarist Chris Santillo, and drummer Jordan Nuanez. Taking pieces from some of their favorite influences, ranging from the 90's grunge scene to 80s pop, Flights Over Phoenix has created a fresh sound that is uniquely their own. Hear their self-produced EP "Where I Comedown" or catch them playing regularly in Los Angeles."
"Swerve is a four-piece indie rock band based in Los Angeles, CA. Crafting melodic, guitar-driven tunes, singer-songwriter Gregory Mahdesian leads the band with a vision of staying true to the foundations of alt-rock. Together with local musicians Ryan Berti on guitar, Brandon Duncan on bass, and Mark Gardner on drums, Swerve creates songs reminiscent of the Britpop and Grunge movements with a modern sensibility and a healthy dose of their Californian personalities. Swerve made their official debut with a self-titled EP release which lent to rave reviews; “the band has quickly created a memorable sound,” describes PureVolume. Swerve is currently releasing a series of new singles in anticipation of their second EP, due out in Spring 2018."
