Eva Under Fire
If you think rock n’ roll fairy tales are a thing of the past, you haven’t met Eva Under Fire. These Detroit rock upstarts got their start five years ago and instantly began cutting their teeth in the underground rock scene, building an enthusiastic fanbase the old-fashioned way. The band’s trajectory shifted toward the stratosphere when they sent an unsolicited demo to Better Noise Music, who recognized the band’s hybrid of rock, metal, pop and classic rock as something wholly unique. Inspired by everyone from the Deftones to Duran Duran, their upcoming album combines soaring melodies and relentless riffing with the powerful pipes of vocalist Eva Marie, who passionately spreads the band’s inclusive message of hope during these uncertain times.
Formed in 2016, Northern Illinois based alternative metal band Alborn consists of Justin Taylor [guitar/lead vocals], Alex Raser [Drums/vocals], Zame Lewis [bass] and Nate Guske [guitar/vocals]. Their sound has been compared to Deftones or a heavier version of Alice in Chains. But, make no mistake, Alborn has created something unique, hard and melodic.
As a startup, Alborn existed as a cover band under the name of “Alborn Theory”. But that’s not who they wanted to be. So in 2018, they shortened the name to “Alborn” and got to work. As part of that work, the band spent the latter part of that year tracking 10 original songs with Morgan Rose [Sevendust] & Jose Urquiza [3 Years Hollow] and started playing every live show they could. Those shows have now included sharing the stage with the likes of Shinedown, Sevendust, Buckcherry, Adelitas Way, Badflower, Gemini Syndrome, Plush and others.
Alborn has since released their EP, “Impairative” along with singles (“Full Circle”, “Cause to Create” and “Hindsight”) and have had initial success including Spotify’s Rock Hard playlist, SiriusXM Octane, Music Choice as well as terrestrial radio rotation.
Riff-monsters Crobot conjures up the kind of rock ‘n’ roll that has grooves so powerful they throw you around the room and hooks high enough to shake the heavens. They take the sweet-sounding nectar of the gods and pour it down your throat until you’re wailing along like a banshee. With tens of millions of streams, countless shows and acclaim from the likes of Metal Hammer, Classic Rock, Kerrang, BBC Radio, SiriusXM Octane, Loudwire, Guitar World and more, Brandon Yeagley [vocals], Chris Bishop [guitar], Tim Peugh [bass], and Dan Ryan [drums] realize their vision like never before on their fifth full-length, Feel This [Released June 3 via Mascot Records]. Feel This is the follow-up to 2019s Top 10 Heatseekers album Motherbrain – whose cumulative streams have surpassed 30 million. 20 million of which were for the goliath single “Low Life” – a US Top 10 at active rock radio on the Billboard Mainstream with a 29-week run.
Discrepancies, the Rap/Rock band out of St. Louis, have formed an undeniably powerful and innovative sound. Comprised of Garrett Weakley (Bass), Addison Bracher (Guitar/vocals), Zach Allard (Drums), and Antonio Metcalf (Vocals) have formed a unique take on Rap Rock incorporating heavy riffs, soaring choruses, and breakdowns with intense lyricism and hip hop elements. In January 2018, Discrepancies signed to InVogue Records. They released their debut album “The Awakening” in March of 2018 and had over a million streams in the first week. “The Awakening” landed on Billboard charts peaking at #32 Alt New Artist and #108 Top New Artist. The band set out on multiple short-run tours throughout the year with bands such as Ded, Kottonmouth Kings, Memphis May Fire, and even the Final Vans Warped Tour. The band played the final Vans Warped Tour in the summer of 2018. They joined the lineup for Rock USA the following year as well as continued their support for the album. In January of 2020, the band released the first single from their 2nd LP. The single, Control, pushed over 500k views and streams before the album release and continues to grow. The band released 4 more singles, riding the wave through the unfortunate 2020 global pandemic.
