Established in Detroit in 1974. Death is one of Rock-N-Roll’s most unique and inspiring bands. Three brothers who played some of the hardest-driving Rock-N-Roll and recorded a now classic album in 1975. Rejected for their sound, their name, and their color, 34 years later the band Death began receiving what is now world-wide recognition for the Rock-N-Roll music they created in Detroit throughout the seventies. Their music and message is universal, and the sound of Death is unique and tight! The new Death album tracks have just been completed for an exciting array of new Death music to be presented in the upcoming 2013/14 season.

In the long and storied tradition of New Jersey Rock And Roll, The Everymen create their own brand of booze-soaked, smoke-tinged rock which recalls Garden State brethren Bruce Springsteen, Gaslight Anthem and The Bouncing Souls but also rock and roll godfathers Rocket From The Crypt, The Ramones and The Replacements. With their hearts affixed firmly to their sleeves, The Everymen play one of the most raucous and sweat-inducing shows around.
Featuring Mike V and Catherine Herrick trading vocals, Geoff Morrissey’s flaming guitar leads, the Zillitones – brothers Scott and Jamie – on honking sax and throbbing bass, Tom Barrett on keys and the Zen Master Stephen Chopek on drums, The Everymen have been bringing the rock for almost four years now with no signs of slowing down. In addition to their near-constant show schedule, The Everymen have shared the stage with Titus Andronicus, The War On Drugs, Palma Violets and King Khan And The Shrines.
Their debut album New Jersey Hardcore is available now on NJ-based Killing Horse Records.
It takes balls to let Purling Hiss get in your face- their records are a half-corroded, screaming roar of high-end guitars crushed together, obliterating vocals and drums with their singular assault. Well, if you’ve got balls, get ready to swing ‘em! With Water On Mars, Purling Hiss have broken out of the basement, run through the bedroom and are now loose, out in the streets, blasting one of the great guitar albums in the past couple minutes. Yes, Water On Mars, from the swirling sound of Purling Hiss – Drag City’s gonna let you have it, come March 19th, 2013!
Water On Mars is Purling Hiss’s first recording outside the fuzzy confines of Mike Polizze’s inner rock utopia, where the first three albums and EP were constructed in solitude with a home-recording setup. Over the past couple years, Polizze’s been working with a band and fine-tuning new songwriting ideas while playing shows all over the place. Now there is a center to the Hiss maelstrom, with Polizze’s guitars slugging, sizzling and spiraling their way around the rhythm throb, singing disaffected in shifts both aggro and slack (and around to the back) through the course of a song, with production highlighting the schiz by buffing the raw power into a streamlined blast. If that doesn’t rattle your caveman brain, nothing will! Purling Hiss have a deeply satisfying way of drawing from the red, white and blue wells of 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s rock to inform their own sound, giving things a retro ring while doing what they do in the Philadelphia of today – and no other time could apply, really. So bring your neanderthal face out to space, grab a glass, and prepare for a pour from Water On Mars, Purling Hiss’ first banger for Drag City, out in March!
