Sum 41
Sum 41
Sum 41's career has been filled with highlights that extend well beyond the traditional 'punk' band. They've collaborated with Iggy Pop, Ludacris, Tommy Lee, Rob Haldford, and Tenacious D, and were invited to tour with heavy metal legends Motley Crue when they reunited. They were shockingly close to death while filming a 2005 documentary in war-torn Congo, and Deryck Whibley was almost deported from the U.S for his political views in 2007. Not to mention, they've sold over 12 million albums and toured the globe countless times.

Since their inception in 1996, Sum 41 has been relentless, unapologetic, and unconcerned with musical boundaries. In the past, their music style has been described as an "eclectic meld of raucous punk-rock, thunderous heavy metal and straightforward rock." Sum 41's new album, Screaming Bloody Murder, feeds off this past and expands on it.

They have recently been labeled as one of the world's best live bands. Whibley says he's not concerned with these labels, but "all we've ever tried to do is play better live. Its what makes us a band. At times, everything else is bullshit. Touring is something we constantly work on, and over 12 years we have continued to improve."

Sum 41 has also been unapologetic about their life-style off the stage. "We're best-friends, we love to play music. And we also happen to be idiots. This hasn't changed since high-school," says drummer Stevo 32. "Rock music has a long history of partying. We are no different," quips Whibley.

WIth track titles like: 'Blood in My Eyes', 'Jessica Kill', 'Holy Image of Lies' and 'Happiness Machines', Screaming Bloody Murder is an evolution of the band's metal and punk-rock influence, but continues to blend musical styles as they have done in the past.

Bassist Cone McCaslin feels "like we really reached a new level with this one. Its definitely my favorite Sum 41 album. Musically, this album has pushed way beyond anything we have ever done. I can't wait for fans to hear this album. I can't wait to play this album live."
I Am Dynamite
Armed with a single guitar and basic drum kit, IAMDYNAMITE have quickly established themselves as a rock and roll force to be reckoned with. The musicianship is solid, the tunes are irresistible and infectious and their energy on stage has been appropriately described as "feverishly fun". The band's distinctive sound is influenced, in part, by what Drummer Chris Phillips calls "the power rock of the 90s", while Guitarist/ Lead Vocalist Christopher Martin points to "strong melodies and lots of energy" as a primary focus for the songwriting. Though some may assume a band made up of only two instruments might be rather limited, the big explosion of sound they bring to the stage has inspired more than a few critics to observe, "IAMDYNAMITE are two guys who sound like five".
Last Scene In Reno
Last Scene In Reno
Hailing from Lancaster, PA, these four friends are on a mission to
create infectious songs with their catchy hooks, soaring guitars, and
one of the tightest drum/bass rhythm sections around. In May of 2012,
Last Scene in Reno released their debut EP, “You Act As If I Have a
Choice”, which is available on iTunes:
http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/you-act-as-if-i-have-a-choice-ep/id520632737

"'You Act As If I Have A Choice' is a fine example of all the things
that people love about pop-punk. Fine drumming? Check. Gang vocals?
Check. Half-tempo, final choruses? Check. Vocal harmonies? Check.
Dueling vocals? Check. It’s all there in fine style. Overall, Last
Scene in Reno has crafted an EP that will define your summer, and take
you back to your high school glory days. It’s a fine piece of work
that begs for repeated listens, and evokes anticipation for more music
from these guys. You can hear their passion for what they do with
every note; something that many bands and novelty mainstream acts lack
these days" - Robbie Goldovich, hercampus.com/ (Apr 15, 2012)
