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.
Chicago post-punk band Eve Black combines dark, driving grooves with delay-drenched guitars and soaring vocals to deliver a sonic experience that is equal parts catchy and crushing. Since 2019, the band has explored a range of shadowy sounds and textures, shaped by influences like The Cure, Protomartyr, The Chameleons, Siouxsie and the Banshees, classic deathrock, and a variety of high-drama goth bands. Returning to the stage with new music, a new lineup, and plenty of pent-up energy, Eve Black brings a DIY ethos and an infectious energy that exhilarates audiences and brings them back for more.
