Colfax is a heavy rock outfit that spawned from Brockville, Ontario. Motivated and eager to discover, the band went on to play hundreds of shows (included two self-booked, coast-to-coast tours of Canada), record internationally, and sign a distribution deal with Universal Music Canada through an independant label. Colfax also created a unique fan appreciation/achievement program inspired by the bands affinity with video game culture.
Years of rigorous touring and ever-growing musical capabilities liberated Colfax and had allowed the band the right means to create their sophmore album, "One Big Quicksand". The album was recorded and produced by up-and-comer Jayson DeZuzio (Coheed and Cambria, My Chemical Romance, Four Year Strong) in Hoboken, New Jersey.
A POETIC YESTERDAY
This unique Punk/Grunge band from Redditch have won a fanatical fan base all over the UK with more than 500 live shows and headline appearances at venues such as the Birmingham O2 Academy. Now with their new single The Movie: Directors Cut, taken from forthcoming album Revolutions, the band are set to gain the national recognition they deserve as one of the UKs best Pop-Punk bands of recent years.
Drawing on influences from punk, grunge and good old fashioned rock, the band recently signed a two album deal with Banter Music and describe their current sound by saying If Nirvana, Blink 182 and Four Year Strong had babies, A Poetic Yesterday would be the result.
are an alternative Rock/Drum and Bass/Experimental band. Savant is influenced by an array of different bands and artists. Faith No More, Massive Attack, Ronnie Size, Queens of the Stone Age and Radiohead have all played a part in the music, while the songwriting and lyrics dip into a bit of Nick Cave, Chris Morris, Elbow and The Smiths.
Savant is made up of:-
Paul Keaveny- Vocals
Chris May- Guitar
Steve May- Bass
Dave Killick- Drums
The band formed in Manchester four years ago after school friends Paul and Chris resolved to try and write the kind of music they loved listening to. They were joined by Chris's brother Steve and drummer Dave Killick, who had studied music and sound production with Chris at Salford Uni. Originally called blacklist, the band released an EP in 2009 - 'Fight or Flight'. Since then, the writing and sound has evolved, bringing in more samples and electronic sonic textures to accompany the bands raw four-piece sound. Savant's debut album 'Codes' is out now.
THE BLACKHAND are an alternative rock band based just outside Liverpool, UK. They released their debut album Greetings, From The Bitter Sweet Edge in late 2011 and are taking it out on the road on a co-headline tour in the summer of 2012.
THE BLACKHAND have shared the stage previously with acts such as Arcane Roots, I Spy Strangers, 22 and Romans.
THE BLACKHAND take influence from bands such as Alter Bridge, Black Stone Cherry, Lower Than Atlantis, Young Guns and We Are The Ocean.
A currently untitled follow up to 2011s Greetings, From The Bitter Sweet Edge is currently keeping THE BLACKHAND locked away in their rehearsal rooms.
THE BLACKHAND come armed with a powerful backline and a singer who must have downed a pint of purified glass before taking the stage. They could become Merseysides finest purveyors of stripped down hard rock Man Gone Blog

THE MADDING CROWD
The Madding Crowd are the germination of an idea that was had around March 2009, but didn't really come into fruition until around April 2010. We are from Manchester and we strive to make music that is different, music with feeling, with passion, with a voice, with something to say. Music that is art. It is our opinion that the world of music has become a stale and sad place, governed by money and careerism (as most things are nowadays), a place in which no one is any longer willing to take risks and talk about life and humanity as it is in the 21st century. No one is real now and everything is motivated by financial gain, everyone is afraid to say things of any substance, music is festering with charlatans and liars, people who patronise and appoint themselves as icons when that is not for them to decide. But there is nothing fake here, we are as genuine, as human, as chaotic and beautiful and glamorous as it gets, there is no lying with us - there is no one like us.
