The Plot in You
While as a part of Before Their Eyes where he played guitar, Landon Tewers formed Vessels in 2010 as a side-project. After the successful release of their EP Wife Beater, Tewers saw the potential of Vessels and left Before Their Eyes. The name was changed from Vessels to The Plot in You and the band signed to Rise Records.
By the time they were signed, Tewers had already begun working on material seeking to release a full-length. The full-length debut First Born was what came from the writing process, meeting its release on April 19, 2011 via Rise Records. A music video for "Miscarriage" was recorded. The band toured extensively through 2011 and 2012 with acts such as A Bullet for Pretty Boy, Whitechapel, Miss May I, Within the Ruins, Iwrestledabearonce, and Oceano. Guitarist Anthony Thoma announced in late 2011 that he would be leaving the band to return to school. His last tour was the band's first outing to Australia to support Buried in Verona. He was replaced by Derrick Sechrist.
The Plot in You announced their new album Could You Watch Your Children Burn? in November 2012. The album released January 15 via Rise Records. The first single "Premeditated" was released on December 10 via the Rise Records YouTube channel. Drummer Cole Worden announced that he would be amicably leaving the band after the "Fuck It, We're Done" tour with Attack Attack! to pursue an education, just as former guitarist Anthony Thoma did the past year. Kevin Rutherford, formerly of Like Moths to Flames, went as an unofficial member for a period of time until he became a permanent member.
Frontman Landon Tewers announced he would be releasing an independent EP sometime this year. The EP album will include songs he released on his YouTube channel. Such as Wet Skin The Stretching Girl, as well as unreleased content.
Oceans Ate Alaska
Stemming from Birmingham, UK, Oceans Ate Alaska is made up of James Harrison (Vocals), James Kennedy (Guitar), Adam Zytkiewicz (Guitar), Mike Stanton (Bass), and Chris Turner (Drums). The band offers a progressive strain of experimental modern metalcore that has gotten them noticed as one of metal's most exciting and fresh young names. With music as unpredictable as it is expressive, the band found inspiration for their name from the world's largest recorded mega-tsunami - measuring at 1,700 feet high - that demolished Alaska's coastline in 1958. The band was attracted to the natural disaster's national headline that read "Oceans Ate Alaska" where they decided to carry the name on a path to make their own history. By pushing sonic boundaries, Oceans Ate Alaska aim to take listeners on an emotional journey through unpredictable arrangements (both heavy and melodic), ruthless riffs, and unforgiving guttural vocals; setting an atmospheric landscape that showcases the band's technical skill.
After being a band for a year and a half many changes have taken place. But as we progress more and more CURRENTS has been working,writing, and going to back to our roots as far as sound. We have our lineup with Freddy Lopez ( AMONG THIEVES) on Vocals, Pedro Rentas (Ex-ArianaGrace) Drums, and Ian Montegomery (Ex-Awaken Great City) Bass as well as original guitarists Austin Allison and Domenic Reid. We plan on taking CURRENTS to the next level playing music we love anywhere we can.
Tempting Fate has set out to deliver a unique blend of music, with a style all their own. Their music can be described as heavy grooving, melodic, and fast metal focused on catchy choruses and harmonized guitar solos.The band was formed in 2010 by brothers Cory Beecher (Vocals) and Shane Beecher (Guitar), with the recent addition of Matt Campbell (Bass). Tempting Fate has built a strong following over the past five years, playing countless shows across the coast, including the Sunset Music Festival. The band is currently in the studio, focusing on their new sound and album - out early 2016.
Their latest release, ‘ILLUSIONS’ dropped in 2014 and can be downloaded for free. The eight track EP was written, recorded, and produced entirely by the band. Stay tuned for the next era of Tempting Fate, coming 2016!
