Crown The Empire
Since bursting onto the scene in 2011 with their debut EP, "Limitless", Crown The Empire have shown no signs of slowing down. 2012 brought the band to the forefront with their debut full-length, "The Fallout", and a cocktail of world tours, magazine covers, and die hard fan dedication ensued, pushing ' The Fallout' to sell over 85,000 copies to date. Their sophomore follow up ' The Resistance: Rise of the Runaways' further explored the conceptual world within their previous release, and was greeted with even more enthusiasm, reflected in the 75,000copies sold in half the time of their previous effort.

In 2016, Crown The Empire released their new album ' Retrograde' . This record sees a departure from the conceptual world that defined their past efforts, and instead the band takes you on a voyage into the reality of their lives as a band of twenty-something' s growing up under a spotlight, and the way they see the world around them. Bathed in cinematic production reminiscent of the space epics ' Interstellar' or ' 2001: A Space Odyssey' , combined with blistering guitar riffs comparable to the likes of ' Incubus' or other alt-rockers of a time gone by, Crown The Empire have made their identity known with Retrograde, proving they have the song-writing prowess backed by an understanding and aptitude for cultural identity that has them ready to stand amongst the giants.

There is nothing fake about Retrograde. The 13 song LP blends seamlessly from track to track, allowing fans to truly embrace Crown The Empire as a soundtrack to their lives in an unparalleled way. Nothing is holding Crown back from being one of the biggest bands in rock, and ' Retrograde' marks only the beginning of what will be a cultural impact the world over.
Dear Desolate
Dear Desolate
Dear Desolate is a 5 piece Nü-Metal band hailing from Raleigh, NC. The name serves as a constant reminder that without passion to fill voids, life is bleak.

Dear Desolate is a band consisting of different beliefs in all aspects of life. Their basic message is to think individually and to respect any opinion that someone may have.

The group which consists of Christopher Walsh, Tyler Davis, Brandon Garrison, and Jeffy Capozzoli, recorded and released their first EP in December 2013 titled 'The Fiction Diary.' In May of 2014 Dear Desolate picked up Kristofer Sunico and soon released their two singles 'Live Free or Die' and 'Pulling Teeth' produced by Drew Fulk and Kile Odell.
The Second After
Emerging from a genre which has connected so profoundly with teens and young adults for many years, yet also often regarded as stale with repetitive, predictable melodies and generic lyrics to outsiders, The Second After brings a refreshing and unique sound to Pop-Punk. Their long lived passion for playing music together, combined with their dynamically intertwined individual backgrounds in such genres as Pop, Punk, Hardcore, Acoustic, Folk, Rock, and Progressive Rock/Metal make for an enticing take on the Pop-Punk/Easy-core sound. With deeply intricate and hard-thought melodies and harmonies, combined with "bouncy" and exciting energetic riffs, this quintet from Durham, NC is prepared to take their music scene by storm, and reignite a passion for a genre that has meant so much to so many.
