In The Whale
In The Whale
The Chicago Tribune said it best about In The Whale when they said this: “Stripped down to a simple essence, the band's hard-edged fare scampers, thrusts and giddily thrashes...Dirty, fun and caked in garage grime, the songs are unconcerned with trends.”
Unfortunately, the current musical climate is seriously lacking in bands and artists of this caliber. In The Whale harkens back to the time when bands simply plugged in and let the music speak for itself.
That nostalgia, and the Denver, CO duo’s need navigate a world that’s quick to judge and write-off a book by its cover is the foundation for their alternative/punk/hard rock sound that is showcased on the band’s new EP, Quicksand.
Celebrating their six year anniversary in 2017, the band has accumulated a mass of die hard fans and followers thanks to a relentless tour schedule and a live show that’s likened to a sonic boom. Artists and festival promoters have caught notice with the band playing Riot Fest, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Afro Punk, and over 400 shows with the likes of Jane’s Addiction, The Offspring, Gogol Bordello, The Darkness and many more.
The Bastard Suns
The Bastard Suns
The Bastard Suns are a four-piece sonic assault vehicle. In just under 9 years, this Atlanta band has managed to release two full-length albums and five EPs, punctuated by 2009’s ultra-popular full-length Here Come the Suns, and most recently, 2011’s A Band for All Seasons. With the help of several national radio stations and sponsors like Silver Surfer Vaporizers and Sacred Custom Percussion, the band has amassed hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube, including the video for their single S.B.M.T., which has over 100,000 views alone. Their tours are completely self-funded, and have spanned the length of the U.S. over a dozen times, including countless East Coast and southern tours.

Biography
I Am The Owl has been described as “punk meets metal from the era when rock gods wielded axes… high volume music that inspires mosh pits”. In an era where many have wondered if rock ‘n’ roll was still alive, I Am The Owl has committed to a no-compromise approach to making heavy music for people who love heavy music.

The evolution of their sound can be heard on the initial singles from their 2nd EP, A Mission To Civilize: Part II, recorded in January of 2017 at the world famous Blasting Room studios in Fort Collins, CO. A follow up to their self-produced 2016 release, A Mission To Civilize: Part I, the album is set to be completed at the Blasting Room in early 2018.

Since 2014 the band has been spreading their “Mission to Civilize” throughout Colorado, appearing on stages across the state with the likes of In The Whale, Agent Orange, Counterpunch, Authority Zero, The Yawpers, The Lillingtons, Native Daughters, Elway, and many more.
