Memphis May Fire


Memphis May Fire puts everything they’ve got into their melodic hardcore sound. Whether you know them from their hits like “Faint,” “Miles Away,” or “No Ordinary Love,” their veteran status on the Vans Warped Tour, or their infamy in the genre, Memphis May Fire have revealed themselves to you in their music.

Memphis May Fire is a sonic confessional, confronting the brokenness so many feel, and challenging that darkness with an aggressive call toward a hard-won victory. Crossing genre-barriers and standing side-by-side with the elite of the rock world is nothing new for the unapologetically melodic and forcefully heavy band.

38 Special


The American rockers, 38 Special, are nothing short of legends. With simply iconic ballads like “Hold On Loosely” and “Caught Up In You,” 38 Special has been delivering head-banging tunes since their founding in 1974. After a strong touring year in 2019, the band has recently fallen on tough news with the passing of bassist, Larry “L.J.” Junstrom.

He rocked arenas all over the world and succeeded in living his dream. He was truly one of a kind, a congenial traveling companion and a great friend to all with a humorous slant on life that always kept our spirits high – a kind man with a big heart for everyone who crossed his path. There will never be another like him.

Boasting huge sales, three consecutive RIAA gold albums, and a Grammy nomination, you can be sure that Sevendust is a band to watch out for. Their brutal guitar riffs are perfectly complemented by their melodic vocals, creating a perfect balance.

Discussion is not happening. Everyone is so quick to snap online. We’re not listening. We’re just talking. In these songs, we don’t sugarcoat what’s going on.

Pianos Become The Teeth


There is just something about Baltimore that fosters some of the best emo bands around. Pianos Become The Teeth are no exception. Leaning more towards the “screamo” end of the spectrum, they are a notable band in a post-hardcore movement called “The Wave.” Since 2006, Pianos Become The Teeth have been paving the way for their sound.

The record is kind of about how we give and receive love throughout different times of our life and through different experiences, and how sometimes we’re hesitant to accept love and we’re hesitant to give out love because of different hardships you’ve gone through in your life.

Marina City


With their anthemic alternative pop, Marina City is on the rise. Their first release was an EP titled Terminal, which put them on the map with their leading track “Man In The Mirror.” 2019 has been another big year for Marina City, with the band teasing fans with three new original singles and accompanying remixes.

Getting raves from all over the world in Atwood Magazine, Earmilk, WGN, Dance Charts (DE) and countless others, the band has given writers and fans a breath of fresh air. Atwood Magazine described Marina City as ‘indie pop with an R&B twist, evoking the best of Prince, Michael Jackson, and The 1975 without sounding like anyone but themselves.’
