(Hed) P.E.
(Hed) P.E.
Originally based in Huntington Beach, CA, (Hed) p.e. was founded in 1994 by frontman Jahred, whose goal was to fuse the region's long-standing punk rock heritage with G-funk-inflected hip-hop. He was shortly joined by bassist Mark who has remained alongside the band until present day. The line up is currently rounded out by guitarist Jaxon and drummer Trauma.

(Hed)p.e was snatched up by Jive Records early in its career, but it wasn't until the year 2000 when they released the album "broke" that they received mainstream success. It was this album that solidified them as a mainstay in the rock and metal community.

(Hed)p.e. released its third album "Blackout" in 2003 which continues to be their most successful album to date. The group is infamous for changing the image and style of the band and music from release to release. Infusing moments of punk, metal, rap, reggae, and rock into their very eclectic yet precise sound.

Many have asked what the name (Hed) p.e. means and stands for. According to vocalist Jahred, "The name (Hed) p.e. is a name I came up with which basically means our consciousness is connected to the planet and the planet is evolving, therefore, we as her children, evolve with her. The "p.e." originally was defined as PLANETARY EVOLUTION, and sometimes morphs to PLANET EARTH and back, but both carry the same message, the (Hed) is the symbol for consciousness. WE ARE ON THE MOTHERSHIP!"

Despite many bands and peers from their genre, (Hed)p.e. has never taken a break from releasing albums and touring, which has enabled them to survive and meet with very strong independent success over the years. As a member that has been with the band from inception, bassist Mark attributes this to a passion for music and for playing in (Hed)p.e. for over 2 decades. "I moved from NewCastle England to pursue music in the United States and have never looked back." says Mark. "Our goal is to be a band that can connect with fans for decades to come, much like bands like the Rolling Stones have been able to do for over four generations of music."

Staying true to the (Hed)p.e. standard of change and growth both personally and musically, the new album "Evolution" takes the band back to their metal and underground roots they grew up on as kids. With tracks like "One More Body" and "No Tomorrow" holding down the metal and aggressive front, to the Led Zeppelin infused track "2 Many Games", this album delivers every style imaginable and even rounds the album out with three reggae inspired/infused album closers.

In a time when so many bands are playing it safe and going through the motions, whether it be out of fear of failure or lack of new ideas, (Hed)p.e. embraces change and "Evolves" with their greatest work to date.

Kill For Mother
Kill For Mother
Progressive Horror Metal band. This DFW supergroup features vocalist Jason Taylor, Andy Boyd on bass (both ex-Sweetooth), Bobby Tillotson on guitars (ex-Warbeast and Sweetooth) and drummer Rick Nagler (ex-Grain). Movie effects artist Bill Hunt (JASON GOES TO HELL: THE FINAL FRIDAY, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN, LORD OF THE RINGS) provides the unique visual aesthetic as producer.
Formed in 2014, Kill For Mother has developed not only a musical direction unlike the members' previous projects, but also a distinctive visual style built on a love of horror.

They played their first live show to an already loyal fanbase ravenous to see this exciting new band. They are currently in the final stages of mixing an EP and will tour extensively throughout 2015.

Kill For Mother's music is a unique blend of brutal, yet sonically balanced composition. Their approach is complex yet accessible and aims for an aggressive, intelligent crowd. Intense music complimented with striking visuals, Kill For Mother is more than a band, they are an EXPERIENCE.
Phoenix Rising
Phoenix Rising
PHOENIX RISING came together in 2016 in the most unlikely of places: a Craigslist ad posted by Vocalist Kent Summerour in search of like-minded musicians who not only wanted to make music with substance, but who wanted to create a live spectacle like nothing else in the local music scene.

After a short search and a lot of luck, the ad was answered by five seasoned musicians one of whom was Australian. Comprised of a second vocalist, guitar, synth and a whole lot of rhythm, PHOENIX RISING was born.

Like setting fire to gas, the newly formed group had written an album's worth of material in one month, and the search for producers began. This search led PHOENIX RISING to Tyler Smyth; however Smyth was on tour six hours away in San Antonio . With no way to get in touch with Smyth, Kent went down to San Antonio with a pillow and a sleeping bag, on a mission to maneuver himself back stage, and persuade Smyth to listen to the demos, hoping that after hearing the music, Smyth would be driven to work with the band. Mission Complete, Smyth agreed to work with PHOENIX RISING in LA and shortly thereafter, the band flew out to record their debut album "From the Ashes".

With the Album complete, supported by several Music Video's - PHOENIX RISING now look forward to drawing emotion from the listener and inspire fans with their powerful stage show.
