Stegosaur takes the tried and true formula of post-hardcore and turns the sound on its ear. On Adventure, the band pushes melodies through the roof while never forsaking the rock. These three songs encompass an impressive mixture of tempos, moods and textures as Stegosaur waxes and wanes its way to something unique, yet still warmly familiar.
CBGBs is synonymous with the punk movement and the New York City hardcore scene. It has long been the Mecca of the underground scene and is a venue that has achieved cult status. It is only fitting then that ever-popular New York City punk band Suicide City would be the band to play one of the final sows at the venue. This sold out show has been captured live from CBGB.
Pianos Become The Teeth has a melodic yet uncompromising sound that brings to mind such diverse and influential bands as Thursday, Envy and City of Caterpillar. Breathing with sincerity and brandishing an experimental ambiance, the band is pushing beyond the boundaries of a stale genre. Mixing elements of screamo, hardcore as well as post-rock, Old Pride breathes new life into a once decaying scene.
There’s nothing better than a passionate band that’s full of heart and talented to boot. Especially when that band begins to get the recognition they deserve.
In addition to booking shows in Oshawa, Whitby and Toronto, Ontario, Suicide Music! has taken on the new role of managing the band Estate Of Grace. With the help of a supportive manager and some great music, Estate Of Grace were recently able to record and release their hot new EP, The Contrast EP.
Enter Shikari has hit England’s music scene with hard driven breakdowns, dance worthy trance rhythms, and a sound all to their own. With two number one singles on the UK Rock Chart it isn’t so surprising that these guys have been known to deliver one of the best live rock shows – having been one of the only two unsigned bands to sell out the London Astoria.
T’was a humid, sticky 2nd day of June in Toronto, Canada when we got temporarily relieved from the heat, with some cool tunes. On that day during the last stop of the sick Tour and Loathing tour, PureGrainAudio’s Spencer Matulaitis connected with Protest The Hero frontman Rody Walker and spoke to him about pissing on tour bus beds, band fighting, oh… and their new record! Plus a random guest appearance by Stuart Aiken, front man of These Silhouettes.
