    Tequila and Whisky soaked rock and roll born from Detroit's raging asphalt. This is the real thing - no holds barred, balls out rock. "Sons of Anarchy" meets "Fight Club!" Members of acclaimed rock band 60 Second Crush join forces with former Mansfield Park lead singer Robert Libres to form a rock and roll juggernaut called Dead in 5!

    We are a 6 piece Popcore band hailing from Lapeer, Mi. Now what I mean by "POP CORE" is we have that pop/pop punk feel to our music, with some core style riffs. Our music is definitely not generic and you wont hear anything else like it.

  • Crackjaw

    Crackjaw has been slamming for about a decade and has released five records worldwide! They have also played over 1200 shows since 2004. So if you have not heard or seen them do it before they die! Their new EP 'Headhunters' is available now on iTunes.
