About the Bands:
Another Hero Dies:
Another Hero Dies was formed in 2008 and has been moving forward like a freight train ever since. After releasing their first EP in late 2009 and opening for numerous national acts such as Underoath, August Burns Red, Emery, Sky Eats Airplane, The Fall Of Troy, and Bless the Fall amongst many others, Another Hero Dies has no signs of slowing down in 2011. Another Hero Dies have recently signed to indie label InVogue Records and are set to release a full length album this summer. AHD has one message and one message only and that is that life is precious and live it to the fullest. Look for them on tour this summer and catch their explosive live show for yourself!
Sleep City is a post-hardcore sextet from Providence, Rhode Island. Shortly after signing to InVogue Records, the band released their debut EP, entitled “Still Breathing”, on February 8th, 2011. With the rapid success of their release and multiple tours scheduled, Sleep City are poised and ready to continue their assault on the music world.
Formed in 2008 in Concord, California as “Sink This Ship!”, the band quickly exploded onto their local music scene, performing sell out shows to hometown crowds. In late 2010, the band changed names to the current “As Artifacts”, and attracted the attention of Ohio-based InVogue Records (owned by Nick Moore of Before Their Eyes), who quickly signed them and commissioned the band’s debut InVogue release, again recorded with Sam Pura at the Panda Studios. “Reclamation”, the 7-song EP, was released on February 22nd, 2011, debuting at number 3 on the iTunes metal charts, and sold hundreds of copies in its first week, with limited publicity.
Hailing from Baltimore, Maryland, comes the 5 piece hardcore unit known as ROYAL. Currently on Invogue Records and touring constantly, everything seems to be falling into place for this group. ROYAL started back in the beginning of 2010 and has already released their debut EP ‘This Portrait, Your Creation’ on Invogue Records, toured the East Coast and Mid-west, and written 10 brand new songs for their upcoming full-length. As of recent, they have been in the studio demo-ing out three brand new tracks. After releasing a new demo entitled ‘Who the Hell is Lou Menotti?’ on June 9th of this year and seeing the great reaction, the band decided it was time to finally make the move toward being a full-time touring unit. Armed with a live show that is sure to please, and currently touring in an area near you, be sure not to fall behind!
Get Up Texas:
What happens when a group of five friends gets together and plays music is Get Up Texas. Hailing from Northern Ohio these five friends have been working and climbing and fighting to the top of their local music scene. With the release of their debut EP entitled “Revelations” and signing to InVogue Records all in the same year the have been on fire ever since. With big future plans and great things looming on the future the only direction for Get Up Texas is up. With the release of their first full length cd coming in the near future Get Up Texas is looking to expand their fan base throughout the entire country and tour and make it to the top of the world of music. Great things are on the way for Get Up Texas and the future is bright and nothing will stop them.
Spies Like Us:
Ever since emerging onto the New England music scene in late 2008, Spies Like Us has left an lasting impression in the ears of their listeners and in the eyes of the crowd.Combining their many unique influences as individual musicians, SLU’s powerful and melodic sound, combined with their brutal and engaging live show, makes them a true force to be reckoned with.
