  • Until the End

    'A Hundred Lies'[audio:http://banana1015.com/files/2012/04/Until-The-End-A-Hundred-Lies.mp3|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 5,000 views on YouTube in just over a month.

  • The NiNeS

    'Sun Don't Shine'[audio:http://banana1015.com/files/2012/05/The-nines-Sun-Dont-Shine-MX.mp3|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.

  • Pistol Day Parade

    'Better'[audio:http://banana1015.com/files/2012/05/01-Better.mp3]

    Pistol Day Parade (PDP) has been in the Detroit music scene since 2008 and in some aspects have already made a name for themselves on a national level. The band prides themselves on bringing exciting live shows, playing every gig as if it were their last. Pistol Day Parade's songs are addictive and will leave their listeners with an instant urge to hear it again. Their choruses are well written, catchy, explosive and are easy for the listener to relate to. Their CD 'A New Life' dropped in April and is available now.

  • Wilson

    'Better Off'[audio:http://banana1015.com/files/2012/05/Wilson-Better-Off-Clean-Version.mp3]

    The growl of chain saws making firewood of fifty foot pines. That’s Wilson. The howling of a pack of wolves battling a rabid moose. That’s Wilson. The panting, gasping breaths of a smoke break “nooner”. That’s f---ing Wilson. The citation for a noise violation… that’s just where the party begins. If all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, then all party and no bulls--- have made Wilson juggernauts. For the past two years Wilson have transformed shows into parties, and concerts into riots throughout the Midwest. Don’t be surprised if you see the gnarliest, glowering dude in the bar start dancing like a first grader on a school picnic once the music starts.
