The Maine
The Maine is an American rock band from Tempe, Arizona that formed on January, 2006. Their first release, the EP Stay Up, Get Down was released in late 2007, followed by a five song EP titled The Way We Talk released on December 11, 2007. The band's first full-length album, Can't Stop, Won't Stop was released July 8, 2008. Their holiday release ...And a Happy New Year was released in December 2008. The Maine released their second full-length album, Black & White, on July 13, 2010, selling 22,634 copies in its first week. On December 6, 2011, the group's third album, Pioneer, was released and it peaked at No. 90 on the Billboard 200.[1] Their newest full-length record Forever Halloween was released on June 4, 2013 reaching No. 39 on the Billboard 200 by selling over 10,000 copies in its first week. The Maine later released a deluxe edition of Forever Halloween on June 17, 2014. The band has announced they will be working on their fifth studio album in November, 2014.
Dreamers
Dreamers
Prepare to embark on a journey with DREAMERS, with their unique brand of grunge that is nostalgic for a space somewhere between art-school eccentric and the late 1970s punk scene. Drawing inspiration from the likes of John Lennon and David Lynch, DREAMERS first sent their kaleidoscopic sound out into the universe with their self-titled debut EP (November 18, 2014) and now return with their highly anticipated follow up, This Album Does Not Exist, due in late Summer of 2015.

Their colorfully passionate music tugged at heartstrings and had tastemakers dancing around the room all in one fell swoop, with praise pouring in from the likes of Billboard, Spin, Alternative Press, Vice NOISEY, Guitar World, and major buzz from the blogosphere and HypeM heavy hitters like The Wild Honey Pie, Earmilk and Baeble. Their lead single "Wolves" has been in full rotation on SiriusXM's AltNation for over 11 weeks and has climbed the Alt18 Countdown (based on fan votes) - where it has remained for over 8 weeks. It has also received spins on KROQ and reached #2 on alternative specialty radio's FMQB and KKBB charts.The band has shared the stage with indie rock royalty including The Vaccines, The 1975, Bear Hands, Walk The Moon, Oberhofer, Broncho, etc. Not band for an unsigned indie band, huh?

Comprised of Nick Wold (vocals, guitar), Chris Bagamery (drums, backup vocals), and Nelson (bass, backup vocals) DREAMERS are (for the meantime) currently wandering in Brooklyn. With Nick and Chris having awoken in Seattle and Nelson in Maryland, they each found a contemplative solace in music, and first met in another life as part of four-piece band, Motive. After catching the attention of the likes of MTV2 and New York Times as well as opening slots for the likes of The Vaccines and Bear Hands, Motive eventually parted ways only to reform in this current life as a three-piece outfit, which would become DREAMERS.

DREAMERS' upcoming LP is a psychedelic collection of indie rock tunes that journeys through an array of experiences culminating one transcendental moment. With each track a mystifying journey and tale in itself, DREAMERS are ultimately here for one purpose - to help you follow your dream, whatever it may be.
NIGHT RIOTS
NIGHT RIOTS
NIGHT RIOTS is setting the alternative underworld ablaze as swift and smartly as their brooding, melody rich and timeless songs have already endeared them to critics. The Southern California based band shimmers with the downbeat romantic flair of new wave, '80s movie soundtracks and the gentlemanly courting of aloof ladies.

Generations, both new and old, hip to intelligent, transcendent pop music like The Cure, Psychedelic Furs, Oingo Boingo, Siouxsie & The Banshees and early U2 embrace Night Riots' knack for melodic sensibility, which is delivered with a unique stamp both modern and timeless.

Frontman Travis Hawley spent five years in England before moving to a small coastal town (with one street light!) where he met guitarists Nick Fotinakes and Matt DePauw, bassist Mikel Van Kranenburg and drummer Rico Rodriguez. Heralded as one of the best unsigned bands in North America by Rolling Stone, Night Riots earned their stripes on the road supporting a diverse group of bands, including Angels & Airwaves, The Script, Shiny Toy Guns, Wild Cub and the newly reunited Saosin. A residency at L.A.'s Hemingways followed buzz-making shows at celebrated clubs like The Troubadour.

Tastemaker rock station KROQ threw their support behind the band via their "Locals Only" events, with early praise coming from the likes of MTV, Fuse and Nylon Guys. The impressive creative heft of the "Spiders" single and Young Lore EP was just the warm-up. It's time for the music world to make a place at the table for NIGHT RIOTS.
