With equal parts of Orange County punk, honky tonk country, and rockabilly sensibilities, Reno Divorce strikes a unique chord of their own in a diluted genre of what passes as "Punk rock'n'roll". Throw in well-crafted and deftly executed songs that straddle the line between Smithereens and Social Distortion, and you've got a band that truly stands out amongst the herd. Oh, and there's one more thing….this aint the boys' first rodeo…they've played with almost all their punk hereos (ALL, Social D, TSOL, Adolescents, Agent Orange, Shattered Faith, X, The Blasters, Motorhead), and shared a tour bus with more contemporary heavy hitters, ala U.S. Bombs, The Bones, and Street Dogs. They've worked with the cream of the crop behind the scenes, as well. Their last record, "Tears Before Breakfast" was produced by Jason Livermore at the world famous Blasting Room and the support tours for that album were handled by M.A.D. Booking in Europe, where among other great festivals, they graced the Saturday Night Fever Stage at With Full Force. Always captivating live, and wrought with more hooks than your uncle Bob's tackle box, Reno Divorce has carved out a reputation as the real nitty gritty, a true "musician's band" that pushes the envelope with every release, without sounding contrived or formulated. Brent Loveday's adept songwriting and clever storytelling are brought to life by the bands expert musicianship. With Brent Loveday on lead guitar and vocals, Tim Jadowski on bass, Tye Battistella on Rhythm guitar and Ruben Patino the band fires on all cylinders. backed by a band that fires on all cylinders. Reno Divorce has earned honors in Kerrang, Metal Hammer, Loud Fast Rules, and (more importantly to the band) the respect of their peers.
RED STiNGER is the bastard love child of cocaine and whiskey. An irreverent bunch known for their balls deep blending of punk/metal/hip-hop and ska core.
Pitch Invasion is a five man mix of the old school punk sounds of the 80’s entwined with the California pop punk attitude of the 90’s. The band delivers an array of fast aggressive riffs and beats that will get anyone ready to destroy their peaceful neighbor’s serenity. The Pitch invasion is melodic at times with songs like Let’s Go and 20 Years to Life. They are also known for their ability to bludgeon their audience with crass 80’s style hardcore. For example, Three Fingers of Fun (use your imagination) and their name sake song Pitch Invasion. The band is fronted by Denver veteran rocker Sputnik Slovenia. His credits include Negative Man, Jet Black Joy and a lucrative solo career under the moniker Chico Tafari. Timmy Invasion on lead guitar, Shane on rhythm guitar and Bart on bass. Both Shane and Bart lend their talents from the Denver skate punk band Frontside Five. Then last the master blaster himself Mr. Joey Chaos on Drums to round out the line up. Collectively these guys have shared the stage with most of their punk & rock n roll heroes. Ok so here’s the list: Agent Orange, D.R.I., The Dwarves, NOFX, The Bouncing Souls, The Adolescents, Christ on Parade, Brujaria, Strung Out, The Riverboat Gamblers, Zeke, Street Dogs, Mighty Mighty Boss tones, U.S. Bombs, McRad, ASG, Guttermouth, Hightower, Youth Brigade, Channel 3, Dead To Me, The Exploited, JFA, The Bronx, Mike Watt, Conflict, Hell’s Belles, Speedealer, Cephalic Carnage, The Adicts, The Skulls, Dr. Know, Naked Aggression, Total Chaos, Duane Peters Gunfight, The Briggs, Reverend Horton Heat, The Super Suckers, The Vandals, and Dick Dale to do some serious name dropping. ..
