Richard Patrick, an early touring member of Nine Inch Nails, met Brian Liesegang and the two began to record together under the name Filter. Their debut album, Short Bus, released on Reprise in 1995, became a surprise hit thanks to the single “Hey Man, Nice Shot.” The album’s rough-around-the-edges production consisted of inebriated answering machine samples, lavish bass lines, and jagged guitars set to a backdrop of drum machines punctuated by the unfurling of Richard Patrick’s vocal prowess and signature roar. By the end of the summer, the album had reached gold status. Liesegang departed in 1997 over creative differences, but Patrick retained the Filter name for 1999’s Title of Record, which eventually went platinum and spawned another hit, “Take a Picture.” The Amalgamut followed three years later, after which the band went on hiatus, returning in 2008 with Anthems for the Damned. Since then, Filter has released three albums including their latest album released in June, “The Sun Comes Out Tonight”.
Fight or Flight
Genre: Hard rock
Similar to: Disturbed, Evans Blue, Hollow Point Heroes, Upon Wings
Fight or Flight is an American Hard rock band derived from two members of Disturbed in April 2013. The band is a side project created by Disturbed guitarist, Dan Donegan, featuring Disturbed drummer, Mike Wengren. The band’s members consist of guitarists Dan Donegan and Jeremy Jayson, vocalist Dan Chandler, bassist Sean Corcoran, and Mike Wengren on drums. Fight or Flight found itself with a full lineup, a finished album, and a deal with Warner Bros Records. They released their debut single, “First of the Last,” on May 21, 2013, and their debut album “Is Life By Design?” arrived in the summer of 2013.
We As Human
Similar to: The Wedding, Nine Lashes, Silverline, Kids In The Way
Nashville-based Christian alternative metal band We as Human features lead singer Justin Cordle, guitarists Jake Jones and Justin Forshaw, bassist Dave Draggoo, and drummer Adam Osborne. After forming in the mid-2000s, the band toured relentlessly, building a loyal following in Nashville and around the United States. They released an independent album, Until We’re Dead in 2006 and a follow-up EP, Burning Satellites in 2007. Finally, the band caught the ear of Skillet’s John Cooper, who helped the band sign a recording deal with Atlantic/Word Records in 2011. In 2013, We as Human released its self-titled, major-label debut produced by Howard Benson and featuring guest appearances by Cooper and Flyleaf’s Lacey Mosley.
Genre: Rock, Metal
Open your mind to Mind Drop! Having topped the IAC Hard Rock Charts and Cashbox Magazine Charts with their singles “Situations” and “Monster”, Mind Drop is kicking ass and taking names. Comprised of Shauna Lisse (Vocals), Adam Deases (Guitar), Jason Beck (Guitar), Chris Ruzic (Bass) and Dan Sissum (Drums), they can best be described as a mix of Nu Metal beat over the head by Old School Metal, but don’t think that means they don’t offer their own, unique mix to the hard rock/metal genre. Mind Drop has shared the stage with bands such as Five Finger Death Punch, Oblige, Otep, Ninetail, Early Graves, Vanilla Ice, and more. Be sure to come and check them out live!
