Albany, NY is home to the hard rock/alt-metal band Bishop. Composed of three seasoned musicians – Tom Semeraro (guitar, lead vocals), Rocco Semeraro (drums, vocals), and Vincent Padula (bass, vocals) – Bishop digitally released their pounding new 12-track album, Hate Wide Open on January 6, 2015. Luckily for both us and you, the reader, we’re able to offer this free download of the song “Dead Before Dawn” – check it out!

Released on their own Bishopmusic label, Hate Wide Open was recorded, mixed, and produced by the trio themselves and features lyrics about the struggle that society as a whole faces on a regular basis. Bishop have existed since 1998 but it’s a decade plus later, in 2015, that they’re going to win you over with their driving, creative, soulful twist on hard rock.
