2020/07/01Hailing from Chicago, IL, Time Thieves will be dropping their debut album, SPACE, this Friday, July 3rd. Look for it on CD and Digital formats on Anxious and Angry Records. A super group of local musicians, each successful on their own, they realized this is the right time to come together to release this collaborative album.

2020/05/29The Wise Man's Fear latest album, Valley of Kings, is set to drop this Friday, May 29th.

2020/03/13MOTIVES new 2020 album, Death Throes, which drops Friday, March 13th is a super emotional and engaging piece from start to finish. The hard rock/post-hardcore band from Cleveland, Ohio brings the heaviness to your ears with not only relatable lyrics but also the flowing riffs, powerful breakdowns, and an emotional ride of varying emotions from start to finish. This 11 track post-harcore masterpiece has a song for every feeling ranging from life struggles such as self image in "If The Accident Will" to the constant mental battles of ones self which are emphasized in Track 5 "Burn Through Me".

We Came As Romans
2020-03-05Ten years ago, six friends decided to get together and make music. Ten years ago these six friends made their first record album called "To Plant a Seed".

This is only the second time We Came As Romans has toured since Kyle Pavone passed away. This tour is different than the last because they are celebrating and playing "To Plant a Seed" for the last time. Before the show started the crowd was chanting "For Kyle!". It was heartwarming and it's nice to see the fans keeping his memory alive. Also before the band took the stage, a video began to play of all of the band members talking about this album and how it all began. At the very end, I could of swore everyone was on the verge of tears, because at the end of the video.... Click to Read More...... By Alexandra Geshel
