Hoist the Colors:
Hoist the Colors is a critically acclaimed Los Angeles-based band that plays a blend of punk rock, traditional Irish music, and American folk and bluegrass. Like the cultural fabric of their city, their music is an eclectic mix, the product of different traditions coming together to create something totally original.
A year after their self-released debut album, the band headed back to the studio for their second effort, teaming up with label Hardline Entertainment for 2012’s Miles To Go Before We Sleep. Inspired by their dedication to their craft, the title is a statement about the band’s commitment to pushing their music forward, and the limitless possibilities of the road ahead. Songs like “Gordie Lachance,” “Dance Through the Days,” and “Gold,” speak to the album’s theme of dedicating oneself to a life less ordinary.
The band’s commitment to their music has begun to pay off, resulting in sold out shows in their hometown and recognition across the U.S. - including a feature in Alternative Press magazine’s “100 Bands You Need to Know” issue earlier this year. The band also recently headlined a successful West Coast tour and is fresh off a sold out performance at the Troubadour with Old Man Markley and Joey Cape.
For fans of The Pogues, Flogging Molly, Mumford and Sons, and Bad Religion.
New Way On:
The idea behind New Way On lies within their name. They wanted to take the music they love hearing and playing in different directions, giving it a new way on. This is precisely what they have done. It has been hard for them to describe their own music because they take something so seemingly familiar, and put it in a new place. They’d like to call themselves a punk band, but it’s so much more than that. Their sound is dynamic and changing and it’s evident in their newly released full length LP, The Brightest Corner. This ten song collection is an audio bibliography of sorts, telling the band’s three year history. Now they are taking their music to new and different places.
Growing up on a healthy diet of punk rock music, this has become the core of what New Way On does. They know how to push the envelope of that one two beat though. Just take a listen to what’s going on in the title track “Brightest Corner.” It will take you on a trip through many of the dimensions of what makes New Way On what they are: A healthy dose of a punk rock, plenty of catchy lyrics, guitar riffs that you’ll be humming all day. Hell, you might even find yourself pumping your fist and rooting for the underdog. Adrian’s deep voice and even deeper lyrics provide a strong base for the music to be structured around. On the track “La Dolce Vita”, Jacque provides an upbeat and nostalgic feel on lead vocals. Damian’s strong beats inject healthy levels of life throughout the album. Guitarist Patrick finds a way to leave his mark on every track. The back and forth vocals provided by bassist Jesse on “Momentary” have become a trademark of something different that New Way On can do so well. His bass riffs aren’t bad either. When all this is thrown into a pot and mixed up, New Way On emerges.
The band calls the Inland Empire of Southern California home and New Way On has blasted their live music through just about every PA in the area. They've created a strong local following and if you catch them playing on a Saturday night in Riverside, the place is guaranteed to be packed with fans singing along. The coming year is looking to be promising time for the quintet. With a full length album under their belt and touring in the mix, expect to hear a lot from this band in 2013 and beyond.
Kid at Heart:
Originally formed in September 2011, but despite line up changes and style changes the band really didn’t make its mark until the mid summer of 2012. Everyone had the same goals in mind, were determined to get it down, and to have as much fun along the way as possible. Despite there different backgrounds in music, the product which the band creates give them a unique twist. Taylor Warren, guitarist and lead vocalist comes from a pop rock background, where as a solo artist developed a huge following in the greater Orange County area, attending many award shows and picking up endorsements from such companies as Taylor Guitars. Guitarist and Backing Vocalist Andrew Fujii comes from a wide range of music spanning from hardcore, metal, punk, and rock. Jumping from band to band his diversity really gives the band a different element. Bass player Matt Sosebee fits right at home playing pop punk his entire music career and with his personality really lives up to what the band is all about. And last but not least the backbone of the group, Sergio Preciado their drummer comes from a punk rock background with Travis Barker being his number one influence on his kit and his style really shines through. With their different backgrounds, they have really found a home together where such bands as Mayday Parade, All Time Low, Blink 182, and New Found Glory are the ones that influence their sound, just to name a few. Momentum has not stopped for these guys, a summer and fall consisting of a numerous shows from Anaheim to the San Fernando Valley, to two House of Blues appearances at Downtown Disney and San Diego. All while working on recording their debut E.P. and shooting a pilot for an upcoming reality tv show on A&E. With 2013 coming around nothing seems to be slowing down for Kid at Heart. Expect more shows and new music coming early with the new year.
