A Loss For Words
In a world where some bands are handed everything on a silver platter, there's also a place where there's still some hardworking folks left. Boston's own pop-punk outfit, A Loss For Words are at the top of that list. Having released 3 EPs and their full length "The Kids Can't Lose" since 2005, they are a group with unstoppable dedication, hard work, and creativity. A Loss For Words have been regarded by members of Bayside, Four Year Strong and Bane as the hardest working band out there right now. Some people are going to ask what being a hardworking band even means anymore, and those questions are warranted. In a world where Myspace plays have somehow become more important than heart, the line that separates the real from the manufactured has become more than a little blurry. A Loss For Words know where they stand in this sea of blurred lines. A Loss For Words are out there on the road touring ten months out of every year. Not only are they out there playing shows, but are watching younger bands, pushing CD's in the parking lot, shaking hands and putting on one of the most sweat-soaked and honest sets you can find. A Loss For Words sees the wall that stands between them and success and they're not stupid. They know that maybe with some cool haircuts and electric drums there might be an easier way around it, but they've picked the path they've always known, breaking away at the concrete with their bare hands and it shows. I challenge you to find another unsigned band with these achievements: toured with Four Year Strong, Set Your Goals and Polar Bear Club, sold 6000 copies of a record that no one helped them put out, and that went to Japan on a 100% DIY agenda. With A Loss For Words, the guarantee is that no matter what town you live in, these guys will be there this year ready to shake your hand, hang out, rock out and have a good time.
Whats up we are a pop punk band from Harrisburg Pa. We believe in hard work and having fun. We don't have famous friends we are not critically acclaimed and no one in this band was ever in some famous band who's name we could drop or coat tail we could ride. But we will get up earlier than you and work longer and harder. That has to count for something. If it doesn't then at least we had a hell of a good time trying and made some amazing friends along the way.
THE SHEDS are an ever-progressing entity in the punk rock genre- hard to classify, hard to pin down. The southern California outfit has been working hard in the last year, logging over 150 shows and finding time to write and record their debut record.
With their new full-length effort I'll Be Fine, THE SHEDS have refined their somewhat spastic Skate Punk sound with 10 new tracks that blur the line between technical hardcore, danceable ska, and melodic punk rock.
Started in 2006 by the three Miller brothers (Mac, Evan, and Morgan), THE SHEDS have been touring full-time since 2010. After several lineup changes and a label change they have set down roots with Los Angeles-based label Mediaskare Records, with whom they released 2012's EP Self/Doubt. They supported the EP in summer 2012 touring on the Tonight We Unite Tour alongside punk stalwarts- The Casualties, Nekromantix, Down By Law, Lower Class Brats, and Flatfoot 56. They also participated in SoCal Punk legends Strung Out's anniversary tour alongside the Swellers and Such Gold. Throughout all this they've managed to stick to their DIY roots, still managing and booking themselves two full US tours and 4 regional headline tours.
2013 is already looking to be THE SHEDS' year, looking forward to a 50 date US tour in the Spring supporting I'll Be Fine before a 2 week stint on the Vans Warped Tour in the Summer.
