The Plot In You
THE PLOT IN YOU THE PLOT IN YOU – Formed in 2010, the Ohio rock band -composed of Landon Tewers (Vocals), Josh Childress (Guitar), Ethan Yoder (Bass) and Mathis Arnell (Drums)- has spent years crafting their unique take on modern rock, transcending genres from metalcore to alternative. Having toured with peers such as The Amity Affliction, Motionless In White and Blessthefall, among others, The Plot In You has garnered a loyal fanbase while establishing themselves as notable contenders in the alternative scene. With their signing to Fearless Records, the group prepares to undertake a new journey with a fresh vision. “Feel Nothing” sees the band take a collective step forward, showcasing the group’s eclectic style and creative flair. The band is currently putting the finishing touches on their new album, slated for a Fall 2017 release.
Oceans Ate Alaska
Uniting boundaries between multiple genres in modern metal, Oceans Ate Alaska—Chris Turner [Drums], James Kennedy [Guitar], Mike Stanton [Bass], Adam Zytkiewicz [Guitar], and Jake Noakes [Vocals]—made waves during 2015 with their full-length debut Lost Isles. Fusing unpredictable polyrhythms and a sporadic partnering of melodic and dissonant passages, Rock Sound and Revolver both pegged Oceans Ate Alaska as a “Band to Watch,” while they landed on Alternative Press’s “100 Bands You Need To Know” list and covered HM Magazine. The Birmingham, UK, technical metal quintet’s second full-length album, Hikari, translates to “Light” in English and represents their current mindset, illuminating major strides in the group’s sonic vocabulary. Following a lyrical and musical theme rooted in Samurai mythology, the 11-track album blends traditional Japanese instruments with Oceans Ate Alaska’s dynamic flare. Ultimately, Hikari means both a new “light” for Oceans Ate Alaska and heavy music at large.
Sometimes time is the missing ingredient needed in order for an idea to come to fruition. Such is the case with rising metalcore/djent band Currents, who after forming in 2011 spent the next few years discovering their identity and evolving into the thriving band they are today. After a change in vocalist in 2015, adding Brian Wille to the group, Jeff Brown (drums), Chris Wiseman (guitar), Ryan Castaldi (guitar) and Dee Cronkite (bass) solidified their lineup with members who shared a common current of energy that moved through one another towards the same vision.
That vision will come to light on the band's debut album due out this summer. Speaking of the forthcoming record, Brown says "it's definitely dark lyrically. Although some of the leads and drums might make it more upbeat. Over all the album is about Brian's thoughts and fighting his demons. We left all the vocals up to him so he could have full creative control. It turned out awesome and we are super proud of it. The instruments came together over 2 years of writing. We went into the studio with over 50 songs and ideas and left with 13 songs we believed were our best work."
The upcoming record will mark Currents' debut, full-length album, following two previous EPs with their former vocalist. The release also finds them partnering with their new label, SharpTone Records, which is home to contemporaries like Atilla, Emmure, Miss May I, We Came As Romans and While She Sleeps among others.
Brown adds, "SharpTone Records is an absolute dream come true. Every single band has a dream of getting signed. However, getting signed nowadays doesn't mean much without the right people behind you. We waited and passed on many offers before talking with Shawn (Keith) and Sal (Torres) at SharpTone. These two guys have a genuine love and passion for music. That then translated to our band and we could tell that they were in this for the long haul. The relationship has been nothing short of amazing and we can't wait to see what the future holds."
After biding their time, the future looks bright as Currents embark on what will undoubtedly be their most successful and busiest year to date!
