One day, after his star sign promised a ‘dynamic’ afternoon, Ambrose Nock (guitar) decided it was the right time to form a band known as Apricot Rail. He was soon joined by Jack Quirk (guitar), Matthew Saville (drums) and Daniel Burt (bass). The premise of the band was simple: music based on unique guitar tunings, the use of natural harmonics, and very open ideas about other instruments, electronica and song structure.
Hailing from sunny San Diego, CA, SECRETS has already made an impact as one of the most promising up and coming acts in the scene. Armed with irresistibly catchy choruses, soaring vocals, and mercilessly dynamic breakdowns, its no wonder the post-hardcore five-piece has seen such success since signing to <a class="music tag"><a href="http://www.last.fm/label/Velocity" class="bbcode_label">Velocity</a>/<a href="http://www.last.fm/label/Rise+Records" class="bbcode_label">Rise Records</a> in the Spring of 2011. Velocity Records’ Dave Shapiro says, "When I heard these songs, I knew San Diego had yet another band that would be at the forefront of their genre.</a>
Dining In Tuscany formed in late 2005 and after an extensive writing period hit the studio to create a sonic representation of the bands intentions. A no nonsense approach to recording and an appreciation of frostbitten atmospherics as dictated by their contemporaries, laid way for the creation of the "post cards from coco lezzone". The EP is cacophonous and raw, it's production values lend themselves to that of old school "necro" black metal and would not disappoint fans of both modern heavy music and their forefathers.
Dean & Britta is a musical duo consisting of Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips, both former members of Luna. Wareham had formed Luna in 1992 after leaving his first band, Galaxie 500. Phillips joined Luna in 2000, replacing bassist Justin Harwood. Their first album started out as a Wareham solo project, but when he heard Phillips' demos, he asked her to join him. After Luna broke up in 2005, Dean & Britta spent the next year working on film scores (most notably Noah Baumbach's movie, The Squid and the Whale), and promoting the documentary film of Luna's farewell tour Tell Me Do You Miss Me.
Rush In Attack are a four piece melodic Indie Rock band based in Melbourne, Victoria. In the past year they have been tearing up Melbourne venues such as The Espy, The Arthouse, Pony, IDGAFF, Pogo and Noise Bar with their extremely catchy Pop Rock tunes.

That’s the beauty of Rush In Attack, their sound can only be described as a modern mash up of the last 70 years of popular music in one explosive live set like an 8-Bit assault on the senses.

Good day dear sir/madam, We hope this letter finds you well. Unfortunately, if you are reading this then all six members of Melbourne metalcore band Belle Haven are dead; mercilessly cut down by rogue cybernetic robots while playing a brutal set at an awesome venue. Please be advised that the zombie Belle Haven will still be performing shows in Melbourne and abroad. Check out the band page for upcoming events, songs, videos or to volunteer your brains to be consumed so that we may continue our rampage of undead destruction.
