American Standards


City : Phoenix
State : Arizona
Country : United States
Bio :

Sometimes strong emotions can make you lose focus. That’s not the case for Phoenix, AZ based
chaotic hardcore band American Standards. After losing their founding guitarist to suicide, then
shortly after the vocalist Brandon Kellum’s father to cancer, the four-piece founded in 2011
released their most emotional and socially poignant album to date.

“ANTI-MELODY", which is the bands 4th release, displays the noise-punk outfits ability to
navigate the troubled waters of depression and loss while still incorporating the social commentary and sharp wit that the band has become known for. More so, once distributed by
Victory Records, the band took a new approach of self-mixing, producing and independently
releasing the album after recording at Kingsize Soundlabs (Mars Volta, Letlive, Bad Religion). The result is a raw and powerfully resonate glimpse into the group’s minds during the troubled times.

Now more focused than ever, American Standards has followed ANTI-MELODY up with a series
of singles that Decibel Magazine have claimed are the “strongest things released in the realm of
hardcore and metalcore in 2018.” The band as also hit the road with their reckless live show playing over 300 DIY booked gigs to date. Their mantra, "Don't wait for things to happen, make them happen." The band has been seen sharing the stage with heavy hitters such as; Every Time
I Die, Norma Jean, Zao, l Comeback Kid, Stick To our Guns, Stray From The Path, Knocked Loose, He Is Legend, Emery, Atreyu and more.

American Standards, which have been featured on Alternative Press, Revolver Magazine,
Decibel, and Lambgoat; can be found on iTunes, Google Music, Spotify or where ever you listen to music.

Dennis Franco


City : Seattle
State : Washington
Country : United States
Bio :

Dennis Franco is a multi instrumentalist, and audio engineer from seattle, washington. His interest in music began at the age of 12 when he stumbled on a performance by ACDC on Saturday Night Live. He was blown away by Angus Young ripping on the guitar, " I was captivated, and mind blown!" he knew then that he wanted to pick up the guitar. He decided to teach himself with songs like "Paranoid" by Black Sabbath and "Crazy Train", which was written and played by one of his biggest guitar heros to this day- Randy Rhodes.

taking a lot of influence from the 80s metal music he grew deeper into the genre.

Later he started to delve into heavier music. Such as Megadeth and Slayer, which eventually led to his interest in extreme metal. That's when he discovered bands like Children of Bodom, Dissection, Kalmah, Watain and Hypocrisy to name a few that had a huge impact on him.

In 2006 Dennis joined his first band: a melodic death metal band called Dark Spectrum. He got to open shows for bands like Goat Whore, Death Angel, and Mortitian. In 2012 Dennis joined a black metal band originally founded in Mexico and relocated to Chicago called Ancient Gods. In 2016 he parted ways with Ancient Gods, and moved to the west coast where he is now currently in a Tech-Deth Metal Band called Nihilist, located in the Greater Seattle Area.

"I have always dreamed of writing an instrumental album. Where I am able to have full control over the creative process, and I'm happy to say that I have taken serious steps towards that goal. I am currently working on my Solo Instrumental Album: A World Withering Away. Stay Tuned!"

Dizygote


Bio :

DIZYGOTE are a guitar and drums metal duo from Cape Coral, FL. Ned is a disciple of classic punk and all things loud and heavy, while E dabbles with the technicalities of prog and newer metal genres. Their sound is a riot of sludge, doom, punk, thrash and prog.

Both are multi-instrumentalists. For decades, Ned has played in punk, country, bluegrass and garage bands. Knowing the difficulty in finding a good, reliable drummer, Ned played the long game and made one then waited patiently. At age 11, E was ready and the two of them began the seeds of what is now Dizygote. Now, Ethan (age 17) is a superhuman musical force of nature.

It is challenging to describe DIZYGOTE’s sound. Close your eyes and they sound like 4 people. Big, loud, detuned, fat slabs of riffs and bombastic drumming is characteristic of each song. Sometimes the vocals carry the melody, while other times the two of them attack the mic with destructive ferocity. Sometimes it’s so sludgy you need hip waders, while other times it will peel the paint off the walls. They take great pains to write lyrics that appeal to the 99% - commenting on social inequality and a call to arms.

Their Desert Records debut, "Fathoms", is out now.

Doomsday Profit


Bio :

The clock is ticking. The hands that threaten doom press on toward the inevitable end. Coasts erode and forests blaze. Permafrost melts and cataclysmic storms rage. Terrified masses seek false comforts. The snake devours its own tail.

Into this morass, emerges Doomsday Profit.

Summoning fuzz-fried doom riffs, darkened by clouds of bad-trip psych-rock scuzz, Doomsday Profit conjures its own storm of primitive doom fueled by nihilistic rage and melted-mind visions of oblivion.

This mutant screaming into the unending void, this wailing, writhing surge of feedback and distortion can be answered only with malevolent portents and the suffocating weight of inevitable doom. If any noise may summon the wrath of The Great Old Ones, this is it.

Early Retirement


City : Rochester
State : NY
Country : United States
Bio :

Early Retirement believes that music should be fun, rowdy, and shared with the people you care about.

Forming friendships in the Rochester, NY music scene prior to starting the band, the guys shared a love for pop punk that inspired their new collective. Naming themselves after a Handguns son (and a healthy dose of workplace apathy), the quartet began writing a collection of songs reminiscent of Blink-182, A Day to Remember, and Man Overboard. Lighthearted lyrics, chunky guitar riffs, and bright harmonies are what to expect from each release.

Amidst the ironic pun, Early Retirement shows no signs of slowing down. The band won Bayside's battle of the bands in November 2019, opening for the Rochester date of the Interrobang tour. This opening slot was their fourth show as a group. Following this grand introduction to the local scene, the guys recorded their debut album with Jordan Foehner at HQ audio. "The Bottle" gives listeners a taste of their unique brand of sunny pop punk and leaves fans feeling excited to hear the full length.

Roll the windows down and listen to Early Retirement on your summer road trip.

Ghostbound


Bio :

My name is Alec, and I am the main progenitor/front-person for Ghostbound. We play a brand of atmospheric metal with tinges of black metal, post-punk, and progressive rock, among other disparate genres. We recently released our debut record via ATMF records, and have started to gain a bit of traction in the international metal scene, having recently been reviewed in Decibel Magazine, among many others.

We favor a few different tunings. I tend to play in both E standard and D standard, and I tend to use some variation of 11s for both. Tunings might drop even lower for subsequent releases, I daresay.
