Originally formed as Daylight in 2007, the grunge revivalists changed their name and reissued their debut album, Jar,as Superheaven in 2014. Although their name changed, their sound stayed in tact. Drawing inspiration from the grungy melodies of the ’90s, their sound is reminiscent of bands like Stone Temple Pilots and Soundgarden. After inking a deal with Los Angeles-based indie label Side One Dummy, the band released their sophomore record Ours Is Chrome in 2015. Listen to their popular track “I’ve Been Bored” above.

Chunk! No Captain Chunk!

Grammy-nominated, faith-based hardcore band Underoath has spent over two decades perfecting their sound. After forming in 1997 and receiving a Grammy nomination a decade later, Underoath stepped back from music for a near-decade absence. Returning in 2016, the band has spent the past few years regaining their rhythm — although they haven’t seemed to skip a beat. Their latest record Erase Me is the apex where melodic heft, tireless power, spatial resonance and arcane electronic textures converge to reveal a band that’s positively fearless. Listen to their track “On My Teeth” above and catch them on tour in a city near you.

Me First and the Gimmie Gimmies
Drawn together by a mutual love of 60s and 70s music, Me First and The Gimme Gimmes work exclusively as a cover band. With an ever-changing cast of characters, singer Spike Slawson originally formed the Gimme Gimmes in 1995. The group gained recognition by the style in which they released their music, naming each song after the artist they were covering. The genre-defying band covers everyone from the Dixie Chicks and Johnny Cash to the Eagles. Their latest release Are We Not Men? We Are Diva! pays tribute to the great pop divas like Madonna and Cher. Listen to their full studio session with Paste Magazine above.
