H2O: If you claim to be well versed in punk history, you would certainly know that H2O are one of New York’s premiere melodic hardcore punk acts. For more than half a decade now, the NYC quintet have been blasting their specific blend of hardcore energy and pop-friendly melody all around the globe to fans of all kinds of music. H2O have found favor with everybody from the hardcore elite to the mainstream enthusiast. One main reason for this universal appeal is the band’s attitude towards touring and playing live.
Performing an average of 200 shows a year, no one can accuse this hardened bunch of road warriors of not playing it to the bone. After performing with such varied acts as Pennywise, No Doubt, The Misfits and the band that gave them their first break, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, H2O have accumulated fans all over the world. Through it all, H2O pride themselves on keeping close ties to their fans. The band members answer all their mail personally and can usually be found hanging out in the crowd after their shows. H2O makes it a point to stay grounded. This closeness to their fans is what gives an H2O show its characteristic unified vibe.
H2O 25th Anniversary Show – Toby’s 50th Birthday Bash
Be Well is a new band with deep roots. Musically, it’s emotionally gripping, with an expertly executed blend of melodic hardcore with notes of 90’s post-hardcore influence. The lyrics are deeply personal, and the vocals harken back to early DC bands like Rites of Spring and Embrace. The members include Peter Tsouras (Guitar) and Shane Johnson (Drums) from Fairweather, Mike Schleibaum (guitar) of Darkest Hour, and Aaron Dalbec (Bass) from Bane. Rounding out the quintet is the vocalist, Brian McTernan, who is known for his production work with bands like Circa Survive, Hot Water Music, Turnstile and Thrice. Be Well’s energy is relentless as McTernan chronicles his struggles with depression and fatherhood through lyrics that are equal parts heartbreaking and hopeful. Fans of the individual members’ past work have anxiously awaited Be Well’s first recorded music. What they’ll get in the band’s 7-inch (released on Equal Vision) will undoubtedly live up to the anticipation.
Wisdom in Chains
Founded in early 2003, as a musical collaboration between musicians from both America and Europe, Wisdom In Chains have put their mark on the American and European hardcore, punk and Oi! scene. Richie & Mad Joe, who at the time both were in Krutch (“Whatever It Takes” released on I Scream Records in 2002) started Wisdom In Chains with Maarten from the Dutch band Daredevil and five years, 3 studio albums and some members changes later, Wisdom In Chains released a long-awaited new album called “Everything You Know” which saw its worldwide release on I Scream Records in November 2009.
