From Santa Cruz, California, ARCHER NATION is a young touring trio determined to deliver genuine and unrelenting hard rock and heavy metal music to fans everywhere. Keyhan’s unique drumming, David’s masterful bass duties, and Dylan’s captivating blend of shredding and singing make for an exciting modern take on the genre while paying homage to the heavy metal inspirations that drive them. ARCHER NATION has worked hard to climb the rock and roll heap with no intention of slowing down as they continue to push towards greater heights, having already toured extensively in North America and Europe alongside some of the genre’s biggest acts.
The 2015 studio release "Culling The Weak" was produced and mixed by legendary rock producer Mike Clink (Megadeth, Guns N' Roses, UFO ) in Los Angeles, CA.
ARCHER NATION has also recorded full-length albums with producers Sam Taylor (King’s X, ZZ Top) & Gilby Clarke of Guns N' Roses fame.
Born from the Colorado metal scene, rarely does a band this versatile and powerful come about, with goals of dominating audiences and searing their blazing sound into the minds of those listening. By way of a thunderous approach, Fist Fight is a combination of numerous musical philosophies and styles which comes at you from every possible angle. Utilizing raw, yet polished techniques at the same time, they fold in a unique blend of technical ability, hardcore, grove and traditional metal riffs accompanied by punkish tones, and a level of unforeseen forceful aggression that commands notice by pounding onlookers' teeth down their throats with a take no prisoners attitude.
The initial foundation of Fist Fight was laid in December 2010 when guitarists Jon Maggard and Nich Rich began to build the band from the ground up. Bassist Adrian Montoya joined the duo in March 2011, and after trying out several drummers and
vocalists, drummer Chris Day and frontman Dustin Holmer solidified the monster collection of talent to create Fist Fight.
With decades of collective experience in the music industry, the members of Fist Fight come from an impressive resume of bands, of which a partial list includes Less Than Under, Chromax, Control Element, Guilty Of Aggression, Skapegoat and Ceverence. Their members have also performed alongside well-known bands such as Hed PE, Snot, Motograter, Hemlock, LA Guns, White Lion and Chimera, to name just a few. Through hard work and natural talent, Fist Fight is poised to set the metal world on fire with an explosive sound that, prior to the band's inception, was unheard of.
Fist Fight uses Shure Microphones, Gibson, Jackson, Epiphone and BC Rich Guitars, four and five-string Schecter Basses, Dunlop Sharp Picks, POD Pros, Mesa Boogie Amps, Peavey/Carvin Cabs, Eminence Speakers, SWR Workingman and Peavey Heads, Monster Cables, Pearl Export Series Drums, Ziljian Cymbals, Pearl Hardware, Pedalstand Evans/Aquarian Drum Heads and Vic Firth 5b Sticks.
Don't allow yourself to be caught off guard; the era of the mighty Fist Fight has just begun.
Driving guitars and chugging bass take the listener to ancient catacombs where incantations Awaken the Wicked, to the dark of night Upon Devils Wings, or to a war torn Earth where you will engage in battle with Hell's minions! Killer double bass and blast beats bring each song to new levels of brutality!
We Are William
Formed in 2017, We Are William is the brainchild of Cameron Johnston. Still in the infant stages of the project, Cameron added reggae vocalist Sebastian Lawrence to the mix because of his unique vocal timbre and writing style. Bassist Max Knaver joined the project in the Spring of 2018 after expressing interest in playing in the project. Derric Bolen was added in the Summer of 2018 after proving his dedication to the project after his audition period. The band at this point in it’s evolution includes Sebastian Lawrence (Vocals), Cameron Johnston (Guitar/Vocals), Samm Barrett (Drums), Max Knaver (Bass), and Derric Bolen (Guitar).
