Before changing the name to Smile Empty Soul they went by Hecklers Veto and released one demo CD under that name.
This has certainly been the case for Louisville, KY-based metal band FLAW. The band has seen multiple line-up changes over the years, however the core of Chris Volz (vocals) and Jason Daunt (guitar) remain as the creative driving force of poised to re-emerge on the strength of their finest set of recordings to date. The band has signed a deal with Pavement Entertainment, and is set to release Divided We Fall on August 19, 2016.
FLAW’s story began with the independent release of home-grown albums American Arrogance (1996), Flaw (1998) and Drama (2000). It was the songs on these recordings that garnered the attention of Universal Republic Records, who signed the band and released the break-through Through The Eyes in 2001. The offering topped the Billboard "Heatseekers" chart, largely fueled by the singles "Payback" and "Whole." The band then followed-up with an album entitled Endangered Species via Republic in 2004, but soon thereafter the band went through personnel changes and ended their relationship with the label. The band’s tumultuous relationship with themselves, and their label, were reflected in their songs. It was the life and energy captured in these songs that propelled the band forward. It was always FLAW fans’ connection to their songs that carried the band on. “We would not be where we are today without our hardcore fans,” says Volz. “The Flaw Family is the backbone of everything we do, and we cannot wait to get out and tour in support of this new record”.
FLAW a band that is re-emerging on the strength of renewed focus and energy, and that energy is captured on the lead single from “Divided We Fall”, a song called “Live and Breathe” that is a vessel of raw human experience and emotion. The band has waited 12 years to release a proper album, to rally and come together. They trust that together, FLAW can accomplish great things, and their fans are poised and ready to answer the call.
Their authentic and memorable songs are highlighted by an explosive live show, both of which quickly gained them notoriety in the Detroit music scene.
Kaleido was named Best Band in Detroit by Real Detroit Weekly two years in a row, won three Detroit Music Awards, and has since taken the show on the road and become a touring machine. Supporting the likes of Seether on the Poison The Parish Tour, Living Colour & Alien Ant Farm, they've also lit up many festival stages on Van's Warped Tour, Rockstar Uproar Festival, Summerfest & CMJ Music Marathon. They have also opened for Aerosmith, Slash, Kid Rock, The Offspring, Sammy Hagar, Evanescence, Halestorm, Ace Frehley of Kiss, Rob Zombie, Weezer, Coheed & Cambria, Twenty One Pilots, Andrew WK and countless others. Kaleido has also branched out internationally, completing their first tour of the United Kingdom & Ireland with Alien Ant Farm and HeD PE.
The first single released from "EXPERIENCE", titled "Love & War" (co-written and featuring Dryden Mitchell of Alien Ant Farm), won an unprecedented 27 nights on 89x The New Rock Alternative People's Choice, and was consequently retired as the most winning song of all time on the station.
Another single from the album, "Die Tryin'" was retired into the Loudwire hall of fame after winning the fan voted 'Battle Royale' five weeks in a row. The music video has been added to 9 platforms including all Pittsburgh Pirates TV promos in 2017, Footlocker's In-Store video system (1,835 stores in 23 countries), YouTube's New Rock Playlist, Clubcom Network (3900 health clubs & Brunswick Bowling Centers) to name a few.
Starting 2018 off with a SPLASH playing the Shiprocked cruise with Stone Sour, In This Moment, Seether, Black Label Society, P.O.D., Beartooth, The band made a big impression and also performed a Tom Petty tribute with the all-star band The Stowaways featuring Bumblefoot, members of Papa Roach, Fuel and more.
Shortly after the band’s formation, they had the privilege of playing the St. Louis Warped Tour. They have since gone on to open for well-known acts such as, Hands Like Houses, He Is Legend, Set It Off, Silverstein, I the Mighty, and Dance Gavin Dance, to name a few.
New Lingo recorded with STL local, Matthew Amelung at Encapsulated Studios for their first 2 EP’s, Feral Youth (2014) and Best Friends (2016). To support their Best Friends release New Lingo released 2 music videos, "Violent Shakes" and "Part Of Me". The video for "Part of Me" spread quickly through social media and has since accumulated almost 200K views on Facebook.
The release of their Best Friends EP led to interest from some notable record labels. Keeping the buzz going, they embarked on a west coast tour. After returning home they continued to stay busy playing in the St. Louis area, along with out of state shows on the weekends.
Recently, New Lingo finished recording their 3rd EP, Beloved, with Nick Ingram (Courage My Love, City Lights, Hawthorne Heights), at Capital House Studio in Ohio and the songs were mixed and mastered by Kris Crummett (Sleeping With Sirens, Issues, Dance Gavin Dance).
Their new EP, Beloved, is set to be released on April 28th 2018.
If you catch them live, be ready for a show. These guys are performers, and they take it seriously! There's Head banging, guitar swinging, and sweat flying, as they pump your head with their brand of amazing rock!
Anova consist of Joe Maurer beating the Drums like no other! Bric Chaney makes guitars scream, plays bass and sings harmonies... James Meldrum provides the jaw dropping lead vocals that really help set this band apart. He also trades off on bass and guitar with Bric which is also an interesting part of the Anova experience.
When you see Anova, you can tell they're genuine guys that have a true love for making music.
We all come from lower, middle, and upper class backgrounds in three different parts of the state, Terrell, Garland, and Greenville Tx. As people we are as different as night and day such as our choices in music and in life, yet we share some common core beliefs.
Alloy was formed in early 2008 when Thomas Mcdonald (Bass Player), brought an old friend of his from Terrell, Texas, Chas Eacret(Lead Guitar/ Lead Vocals) to a new jam spot in Thomas es home town of Greenville, Texas. Thomas had been jamming with Tony Welch(Drums), from Garland, Texas, for 2 years at Tony s house with a host of other good players. The next time Thomas ran into Chas he made sure to give'em an invite to check it out. Chas arrived one morning with a grin on his face and a bottle of whisky in his hand. After the three of us played for hours on end that day, we knew we had something that wasn't bad. Chas suggested that we form a band and play shows around town, so Thomas came up with a name and that was the beginning of Alloy.
