  • Until the End

    'A Hundred Lies'[audio:|titles=Until The End - A Hundred Lies]

    Until the End formed just months ago in Port Huron, Michigan. They have set off to bring people real music with with real meaning and lyrics that fans can relate to. The alt-rockers have been in the studio with producer B.J. Perry (The Product) for the past few months and their debut EP will be coming out late May/early June. So far the lyric video for our debut single "A Hundred Lies" has already hit over 3,000 views on YouTube in just over 3 weeks.

  • Ballz Deluxe

    'Family Reunion (What About Me)'[audio:|titles=Ballz Deluxe - Family Reunion (What About Me)]

    Hailing from the outskirts of Detroit Rock City, Ballz Deluxe is purely ballz out, original rock n' roll that puts you in the mood to party. With honest, melodic hooks, catchy choruses, and heavy grooves, not to mention a reputation for putting on a no holds barred, energetic live show, Ballz Deluxe is flying the flag for dirty, dynamic, in your face, heavy rock.

  • The NiNeS

    'Sun Don't Shine'[audio:|titles=The Nines - Sun Don't Shine ]

    the NiNeS, formed in early 2010, have busted down the doors of the “New Generation” rock scene. The band layers Ian Kirwan's (Dangerous Pursuit) vintage “Dirty” guitar work and road-seasoned vocals with dynamic riffs and lyrical stories to create a genre defining sound chocked full of rock for a new generation of fans. The band also features Beau Felix (Dangerous Pursuit) on rhythm and Kevin Bernard (The Black Page) on the bottom end. This potent combination cranks out, blistering micro-anthems embodying that basic Rock and Roll steamroller aesthetic.

  • Tension Head

    'Can't Please Everybody'[audio:|titles=Tension Head - Can't Please Everybody]

    Formed in 2003, Tension Head from Saginaw, Michigan explode onto the stage with the ferocity of a hurricane. Led by leather lunged vocalist Chuck Rossio and backed by the thunderous bass of Anthony Garcia, the vicious guitars of Sean Griffin, and the propulsive percussion of JoJo Jimenez, these straddlers of the fence between hard rock and metal take no prisoners with their energetic live performances and blistering recorded material.
