The Jukebox Romantics
The Jukebox Romantics
The Jukebox Romantics hail from downstate New York, just in the shadows of NYC. Since releasing their debut album on Altercation Records in 2009, The Jukebox Romantics have taken their talked-about live show from coast to coast including dates during Austin’s SXSW 2010/2011/2016 festivals, the Vans Warped Tour 2010/2012 and Gainesville's The Fest 9 in late 2010.

The Jukebox Romantics are in your face, fun, soulful punk in the vein of bands like The Bouncing Souls, One Man Army, and Alkaline Trio. 2011 saw the release of their sophomoric album, "A Lion and A Guy," as well as a fury of touring. The JBR's self-released a limited 600 copy pressed EP "Hollywood is Dead" in late 2012 and then later for digital download on Death to False Hope Records. More nomadic adventures ensued in 2013 as well as the recording for their 3rd full-length album. "Transmissions Down" was recorded in the late summer of 2013. Produced by Pete Steinkopf of The Bouncing Souls, JBRs are releasing the 7 inch "Plot Points" in Spring 2015 & "Transmissions Down" in Summer 2015 via their new home on Jailhouse Records. The band made a name for themselves from the beginning by hitting the road hard, endless touring, and their ferocious energetic live show. By conveying heart, and leaving their sweat and souls out on stage at every show, they remind you to have fun through music & friends and to never grow up!
Dead Wrestlers
Dead Wrestlers
Hailing from The Piledriver District of New York City, these men are out to put it all on display. With their turnbuckle smashing riffs and crushing vocals, they can only be described as, "the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be."

Not only are they known for their punishing brand of slobberknocking punk rock, but also the acute ability to intimidate all opponents through the voice of their advocate, Mr. Big Willie Schemps.

At a combined weight of one metric ton this five piece high-flying stable will pin you, make you tap, and offer no re-match. No disqualifications. No count-outs.

They are, the Dead Wrestlers!
NowhereFM
NowhereFM
Nowhere Fast create dark, energized, and passionate rock that flourishes from their beloved and unmistakable roots in melodic punk rock. For more than a decade, the band has toured North America with indelible fervor and a restless spirit.

Formed in Louisville, KY, the band is made up of old friends from the DIY tour circuit Seth Robinson, whose soaring voice uniquely blends southern soul with raw rock and roll power; wild and intricate drummer, Phil DiMarco; and Steve Keely, a true bassist with invaluable instincts for balance, rhythm, and movement.

Nowhere Fast’s forthcoming album, Aeonian, the follow up to 2013’s Trials, is the culmination of years of dedication and a love of their craft which manifests in songs that offer a familiar, poignant songwriting presence paired with previously unexplored melodies and structures that build on the depth with which they’ve spent years defining their sound. Alongside producer and former Swellers singer/guitarist, Nick Diener at his Michigan studio, Nowhere Fast have evolved into a truly multifaceted rock band to create their most mature and nuanced work to date.
Townes Cosentino (Acoustic)
Will Romeo is no stranger to underground music, fast, loud and aggres- sive in nature. Surpassing the five-year mark fronting punk rock torch- bearers Gameday Regulars, whose shows spanned East Coast USA through Canada with an unforgettable, explosive energy, it was time for a drastic shake up in inspiration for the husky-voiced frontman. A natural shift occured while sifting through his daily listening of more subdued indie, americana and folk rock, which lead him to an acoustic
guitar in hand and a handful of songs described as “writing themselves.” No need of overthinking—and if they came to be so effortless and with- out deliberation, why not record them with this immediacy as well?

It was in this spirit of separation from the more customary brotherhood of being in a band, hashing out songs in a rehearsal room (something he’s still fond of, he wants to be clear), which lead him to follow this new found solitary muse in Townes Cosentino. What you hear on his first release, an EP entitled A New Kind Of Hell, are four songs telling a story about overcoming loss. The sound reminds you of pulling off the highway into a small town, wh- where secrets aren’t kept too close. Lyrically, Will knows with Townes Cosentino he is without a guard up—of his own nor guarded by friends, other than a singular electric guitar weaving in and out of each song throughout the EP, courtesy of Tyler Pursel of Philly punk band Goddamnit. No loud amplifiers nor crashing drums to shield a song’s intent.

A New Kind Of Hell will be released by Creep Records on August 26, 2016 in conjunction with regional gigging and touring in the works for latter 2016 and 2017.
