The Stonewall Vessels
The Stonewall Vessels
"The band's performance was one of the most memorable of not only the festival, but perhaps that I've ever witnessed. No, that's not just because I and a whole bunch of other maniacs got to join the band onstage and jump around. That certainly added to how cool that night was, but what hooked me and so many others in the first place is the band's unique sound, which is notoriously hard to pin into a particular genre."

- Gerard Longo, Lehigh Valley Underground

"The Stonewall Vessels are impossible categorize into one single genre or, really, even a certain set of genres. As musicians they are influenced by a wide variety of styles and even many things outside of a strictly musical realm. "So who are we to just try to fit into one thing," they ask, "when we like so many different kinds of things?" For each member it has always been about coming together, brining all they can to the table, and "let[ing] it come out the way it's meant to be." This effort without a specific goal leads to universality."

- Scott Fugger, 36 Vultures

Bells
Bells started with two friends, Jon Hershey and Sean Hennessey, back in 2005 after Hershey left metal band, August Burns Red. Hershey and Hennessey played casually together for years, with a number of line up changes.

In 2010, Sean left This or the Apocalypse to rejoin Jon to seriously pursue music together, which is when Bells was born . Around this time Bells wrote and recorded their cover of August Burns Red's "Pangaea" which was included on the deluxe edition of the album "Leveler".

In the months following the release of Leveler, Bells started writing and recording their first album at Hennessey's Studio in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. At this time, Jon and Sean asked close friend Tim Kettering to join the band. Bells is set to release the album entitled "Our Forest, Our Empire" August 28th, 2012 which you can pre-order here.
