1912 the EP is the culmination of three years of growth and hard work, loss and repair once as a band and now, as a family.” – CARPATHIA

 2170036-1

A band is not created solely from a group of people deciding to get into a room and write music together, it’s not that simple. Once you’ve found that ‘sound’, it becomes impossible to ignore that you’re now bound to these songs you find yourself pouring every last drop of blood, sweat, and tears into. You will, quite literally, fight for them. It is with those individuals that make up a truly unique and inspiring band. Carpathia and its members have a history, and it all started with Bobby Drinkwater. As an East Boston, Massachusetts native, Bobby has been consistently involved in music, and in 2016 started a nameless band with long term goals. Bobby keeps the conversations short, but has so much to say behind his instruments. Bobby plays multiple instruments including guitar, violin, piano, and drums. Bobby first found co-member Jason Barsotti to join his new project. Born and raised in Malden, Massachusetts, Jason first picked up his drum sticks at the age of 10, and his long term practice has lead him to a fast paced, hard hitting sound that resonates. Jason’s humble and pleasant personality quickly takes a backseat when he steps behind his drumkit. Bobby had continued his search in bandmates close to home when joining forces with Andrew Miller, the two had met and worked together in a previous project back in 2014. Andrew is from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, but has resided in Lynn, Massachusetts since 2013. Throughout Andrew’s life he has been surrounded by family and friends who have been hitting stages in music and comedy. It is no wonder that Andrew’s charismatic humor filled personality would follow in similar footsteps. Andrew has played guitar long term in a number of bands both in North Carolina, and Massachusetts. He had transitioned to playing bass in 2013 for a previous project and found his own unique sound in the process. These three musicians had wrote and played music together between 2016 and 2017 as an instrumental band while trialing a number of potential vocalists. Finally, in January 2017, Samantha Alice of North Kingstown, Rhode Island joined as the last vital part of this project. Samantha brought her strong vocal skills and even stronger personality to the group. Samantha’s history in singing has taken her from talent competitions to all state choir, and beyond. Samantha was first approached by Bobby after meeting at a local show and sparked an interest in trying out for his new project. It took no time at all for the solidification of this band to come to completion and Carpathia was officially named as such on April 22, of 2017.

Singin ‘N’ Slingin is the best body of work we’ve written so far. From start to finish, its rockin and groovin. We wanted to pay homage to our rock n roll roots and we did just that!

“We are so excited to release our first music video “Showdown”, from our debut EP 442 that is available now! ‘Showdown’ came into the Nashville studio with us as an unfinished idea. With the help of our great friends at Lust For Tone Studio we finished it and we did so by giving it a Nashville kick that gives the song a very southern rock vibe we really enjoy. Our director and cinematographer Cam Brooks had the great idea to do a Cool Hand Luke inspired theme which was a lot of fun to film and we really think everyone is going to enjoy watching it. We are also very excited to be heading out on our Why The Hell Not Summer Tour at the end of June. We will be making stops in Johnson City TN June 26th, Summerfest in Milwaukee WI June 28th, Raleigh, NC July 5th and more dates to be announced soon.

WAKE UP HATE Releases Official Music Video for “Deep Sleep”

0A8A8559

Orlando, FL based Alternative Rock Band WAKE UP HATE has released the official music video for the title track off of their debut EP, Deep Sleep.
“We started Wake Up Hate set on creating something unique and fresh for hard rock fans to listen to. We aim to push the boundaries of rock to new limits and break the monotony of rock bands trying to do what’s already been done before. 2019 will be flooded with new music. We’re just getting started.” – Jake Adkins (Vocals)

player 2

“If you like modern metal rocks with a radio-friendly sound, Wake Up Hate is for you. I hear a lot of similarities to the almighty Linkin Park. Mind you, their not ripping off the aforementioned masters of angsty metal, but they manage to challenge a lot of the same emotions and feelings throughout this EP. There’s a little bit of pop edge here and there to drop everything down a bit, only to build it back up to a frenzy with a heavy rock beat. Lyrically, Wake Up Hate seems to be more mature than many of the bands out there now and musically they’re very tight and synced on this outing. They have a very mature sound for a debut release. The band holds a lot of promise for the future with great tracks like ‘The Cycle”,’ ‘Deep Sleep.’ and ‘Love Me Like A Hurricane.’ Rock radio should take notice of these guys. Don’t be surprised if you hear these songs on your local rock station. Wake Up Hate is primed for the majors.” – XS Rock

Despite their name, ICON FOR HIRE aren’t indebted to anyone but their fans. Since forming in 2007, the duo—singer Ariel Bloomer and guitarist Shawn Jump—have amassed a legion of followers who have connected with not only the band’s genre-bending sound, but also their honesty. That soul-baring spirit and realism is at the heart of everything Icon For Hire do, and it’s front and center on their latest Billboard-charting release, YOU CAN’T KILL US

Produced by Mike Green (Gwen Stefani, All Time Low) and funded by fans through Kickstarter on a campaign that raised $127, 200—making it one of the year’s highest-raising music campaigns—the self-released album marks a brand-new chapter for the band.

Blending hard rock, hip-hop, electronica and pop into an anthemic swirl of both melody and muscle, You Can’t Kill Us isn’t only a modern sounding record—it’s awash in lyrical themes that tap into the times as well. Addiction, depression and self-worth are all topics Ariel addresses and these themes reverberate loudly in today’s tumultuous, judgment-first culture.

After all, having survived the record label system and reemerged stronger than ever, Icon For Hire are living proof that you can take control of your life—and that’s perhaps the greatest success anyone can hope to accomplish.

AUTOPILOT Releases Official Music Video for “Undisguised”

band photo live

Canadian Alternative Rock Band AUTOPILOT has released the official music video for their single, “Undisguised.” Directed by Kevin Van Witt, “Undisguised” is off of the band’s latest album, Afterglow.

“We don’t need these walls between us!” lyrics in “Undisguised” from Autopilot, a song that bridges the feelings of the times with modern rock vibes. It’s a song that questions why do we put up walls when love is what we really want.

Player

“After 20 consecutive shows on tour we had a few days off in NYC to shoot the video for Undisguised. Director Kevin Van Witt captured the contrast of the lyrics with empty streets in a condensed and often chaotic city.” – Autopilot

1. Modern Age
2. Weightless
3. Undisguised
4. Living Dead

Over the last few years, Canadian alternative rock band Autopilot has become a staple in the Saskatoon indie music scene. Known for their thoughtful lyrics, powerful hooks, dynamic stage show, and obsessive hard work, they somehow seem to effortlessly walk the line between passionate art and massive appeal. Over the course of 3 full-length records, and one EP, they’ve become road warriors, touring relentlessly across Canada and the US. They’ve been praised for their tireless work ethic by publications like Canadian Musician Magazine, who called them “quite possibly one of the hardest working bands in the country.”

Autopilot’s highly anticipated new record Afterglow, their most impressive and accessible record to date, produced by legendary Saskatchewan producer, S.J. Kardash, and backed by their most ambitious marketing campaign yet, finds the band reaching for bigger sounds, bigger ideas, and much bigger audiences. The release of their new single “Undisguised” following the success of preceding singles “Living Dead” and “Weightless”, is proof positive of this growing momentum.

Marlon Harder, the driving creative force behind Autopilot, has a knack for finding beauty in simple moments, and hope in the challenges life tends to bring. Inspired by the early writing of Modest Mouse, he seemed to know very quickly what he wanted to do in life. After the release and College radio buzz of their first record Now It’s Time You Know What We’re Losing For, unexpected illness struck, effectively putting the band on the back burner for the foreseeable future. But he never quit writing. Health improved, lineups changed, and in 2013 they teamed up with S.J. Kardash for the release of Diamond Rough, a sophomore full-length forged in the fires of struggle, faith, and growing maturity. The record widely expanded their media exposure across North America; in print, online, commercial rock radio, CBC, podcasts, and through licensing placement on major US television networks.

Their 2015 release, Desert Dreams, reunited the band with Kardash, and represented a significant leap forward in both the ever expanding sound, and rapidly growing fan base the band had built strongly upon with 2013’s Diamond Rough. Along with debuting on Earshot’s Top 50 chart, Desert Dreams received heavy rotation on The Verge, Sirius XM’s Iceberg Radio, and garnered the attention of New York’s prestigious CMJ; while securing the band showcases at Toronto’s CMW and Indie Week festivals, AYE Fest in Cincinnati, Fairfield Revival Festival in Minnesota, and opening doors to tour extensively in the United States.

Autopilot has always been a dedicated touring band. In support of Diamond Rough, Desert Dreams, and the 2017 release of the single “Hurricane” / “Crooked Lines“, the band spent countless months on the road touring across Canada and the United States. These tours have included stops at Jersey Shore Festival, Millennium Music Conference in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and a mainstage performance at Mesa Music Festival in Arizona supporting hard rock legends P.O.D. October 2018 marked the release of Afterglow, which chartered in the top 200 on the NACC North American College Charts as well as specialty radio in the US.

The future is truly wide open for Autopilot. Everything they’ve learned is on the table for 2019 while they continue to promote the release of Afterglow. They are casting their net wider, and going all in. Never content to sit still or play it safe, they’ve crafted a remarkable live show, and plan on spending as much time over the next year as possible, getting the new songs in front of as many new fans as they possibly can.

Carry The Crown are bringing their energy driven version of modern alt rock to the forefront of the music scene across the UK. Known for their thrilling stage performances, they bring their catchy and anthemic sounds and mix them with a stage show that the crowds love.

With an exciting commercial image, the boys both look and sound the part as a major band for the future. This, mixed with exposure from the BBC Introducing platform, has led to the band being featured by Huw Stephens on his Radio 1 show.

After the success of their first EP they are back with a matured sound that perfectly brings together the melodic vocals of bands like You Me At Six and smashes them together with the bouncy guitar work of Don Broco.

The band are driven beyond belief and have achieved more in their first year than even they could have expected. After meeting in Lincoln one night and talking about their love of live music the idea for Carry The Crown was born. Since that date the fan base and support has exploded and fans are crying out for more of what CTC are creating.
