Brandishing a sound forged from the hair metal and Reagan punk of the ‘80s, Redline Messiah’s brand of blistering rock ‘n’ roll is not your father’s cock rock. Comprising five veterans of the Chicago and Southern California punk and metal scenes, Redline Messiah fishtailed into being in 2015. Since then, the band has survived several near-death experiences, performed across the Midwest, and still managed to lay down their first record. The debut release takes inspiration from the great American values of fast cars, fast women and even faster rock ‘n’ roll.

They might sound like your average post-rock band at first but hints of heavy metal, prog rock, and even some blues find their way into the mix. This is of course before they crumble into noisy, stoner-metal breakdowns that leave you wondering what this sorcery was that you just witnessed." -Midwest Action, March 2014

Chainsaws fighting in a dump truck. Melodic punk rock outfit based out of Chicago, IL.
Drinking is supposed to be fun. There is a reason why people crowd the night clubs and wait in long lines for bars: there is energy, there is excitement, and most important, there is possibility. But if you’ve ever drank at a dead bar, you won’t experience any of this. Time moves slow as you drink and think about the good and bad times, and everything you could have done better.
Taking a good piece of the Jesus Lizard's groove 'n' grind and then texturing that with strident punk chords and almost prog guitar licks, Haymarket Riot defy categorization. They definitely fall a bit more on the punk end of the spectrum, but they mix things up with a lot of other influences and some very unique songwriting. The base of Haymarket Riot's sound is the heavy, emotional Midwestern punk sound that descends from bands like Husker Du and Naked Raygun but there's awhole lot more than just soul-bearing going on here. In particular, Haymarket Riot are particularly ambitious arrangers, dropping instruments in and out of the mix with a dub-inspired glee.
DRILLING FOR BLASTING
Drilling for Blasting is a new two piece band that sounds like a three and a half piece, with drummer Kammy Lee and guitarist Douglas Ward, both members of 97-shiki and Fourth Rotor. Its the sort of loud, weird, odd, but grooving tunes that you might or might not expect from these two old fucking dogs.

Colorado’s TIGERWINE melds progressive post-hardcore with the gloomy low-end of new-wave grunge to create a driving, in-your-face musical experience unlike any you’ve encountered before. After signing to Blood & Ink Records in the summer of 2015, the band released their debut EP, Lull, introducing listeners to their self-reflective breed of raw, guitar-heavy alt-rock. TIGERWINE is currently readying their debut full-length, Die With Your Tongue Out, which is set for release on April 14th through Blood & Ink. The album was recorded with Matt Goldman (Underoath, Anberlin, Copeland) at Glow In The Dark Studios and shows the group maturing their sound in ways most bands don’t achieve until well into their careers. Pre-orders for Die With Your Tongue Out are on sale now and additional tour dates will be revealed soon.
Davlin originated as a Chicago-based two piece project comprised of John Cass (formerly of Sleep On It) and Alex Zarek (formerly of Talk To You Never). The two came together to write music that paints pictures of stories detailing pain, mental illness, regret, and loss. After writing and recording the debut EP “What It’s Like To Die” the two filled the remaining spots with new-found friends Johnny Lopez (bass) and Dave Catanese (drums). Davlin has created a diverse canvas of music fusing elements that are reminiscent of mid-2000s post-hardcore and emo (Underoath, Senses Fail, Brand New) with newer influences from the stylings of Citizen, Athletics, and Pianos Become The Teeth.
Started in early 2017 and coming to its full line up in June NATURES has been working tirelessly on writing tunes that strike a chord with you lyrically and musically. Currently the band is in process of finishing their first full length due out 2018. For fans of Underoath, Thrice, Circa Survive, and Manchester Orchestra.
Elder Light is a three piece emo rock band from Lake County Illinois. For fans of Thrice, Brand New, Deftones and O'Brother.
