THE LAST GREAT RIOT
Born in Chicago, melodic punk rock with hints of garage rock, hardcore, and riff-rock. Simple songs about life and the good and bad times. Guitarist/vocalist John A Beavers, drummer Scott Durand, and bassist Mario Mazzone just want to make noise and drink the beer you buy for them.
VOICE OF ADDICTION
Voice Of Addiction are politically charged and socially conscious Chicago based punk-rockers. V.o.A. has been around since 2004 doing over 1,500 shows across North America. Having 8 official releases & independently selling over 10,000 physical copies (as well as being involved in countless compilations, and digital sales) these boys have proven they are a force to be reckoned with. V.o.A. has been featured in the video games Skateboard Party 1-3, Snowboard Party 1-2 & Playbook. A feature length documentary on V.o.A. entitled “Punk Band” is out on all major outlets. The new full-length “Divided States” was released 8/5/22. The Video for Shinigami was just released & WON Chicago Indie Music Awards. And we are about to release another video for Division Complex.
TORCH THE HIVE
Lyrically biting, politically raucous, and raw undefined energy, Torch the Hive is Mike Fruel, Tyler Sanders, and Sergio Apanco. Their first two releases touch on the struggles of growing pains, financial hardship and navigating through a politically divided world. After several self-funded national tours, group members were served with an unhealthy dose of reality when presented with issues of addiction and financial losses as a direct repercussion from the pandemic. As a witness to racial and systematic injustice, Torch the Hive gained a new perspective on which direction their music should take. ‘Flamingo’ serves as a proponent to challenge these opposing viewpoints and aims to allow the listener to form their own view.
