Seasons After
To say that the new Seasons After record Manifesto is an evolution would be an understatement. The album set to release in November 11th, 2016 is a brash declaration of the policies, goals, and opinions of a band that has weathered the storm and come back with a vengeance. Building on past radio success with three Top 40 singles and over 3.5 million YouTube views, the band has grown, matured, endured, and developed a chip on their shoulder that results in a blistering array of songs that will satiate the tastes of both rock and metal music fans alike. Guitarist Jimmy Beattie states, "This album was written with nothing but the truth in mind. It's about the unspoken realities that a lot of us live with, and some of the hard truths we all face at one time or another. The idea is to let listeners know that they are not alone, and that someone understands. We can find each other in the dark."

The record truly is a roller-coaster ride that will draw the listener in with every dynamic change. Seasons After uses massive choruses and hooks mixed with heart-wrenching melodies and shrieking, chugging, glass shattering brutality to convey the true spirit and personality of the band. Front-man Tony Housh adds, "This album is the culmination of everything we have learned both as a signed and independent band, and as individuals over the years. We all stepped into this commitment together years ago, and this truly has become our Manifesto".

Listeners can expect to experience a variety of emotions ranging from rage to bliss and everything in between. The band has truly arrived in thunderous fashion with this record and successfully bridged the gap and improved on their already vast catalog of songs. The desperation and longing for something more truly translates on this record. Having toured coast-to-coast multiple times, the band is primed and ready to do it again to further grow their already rabid fan-base, and showcase what their hard work and dedication have brought forth in the form of their newest release, Manifesto.

Red Tide Rising
Colorado quartet Red Tide Rising have a point to prove and with their latest release, Voices, it comes across loud and clear. Tired of being the bridesmaid, the band has decided that all attention needs to be directed towards themselves and delivering a five song piece de resistance as a whole, rather than only trying to focus on “hits.”

While the quartet’s last release, the Billboard charting ’The Rising,’ broke new ground for the band, it’s the bonecrushing ugliness of the real world that comes to light on Voices and takes the band to a whole new level. "Voices consists of the best music we have created as a band," says frontman Matthew Whiteman, an air of certainty about him. "We did so many different things in the studio that altered the RTR sound this time around. One of them was the vocal effects. We were able to capture a very heavy machine like vocal tone that adds another layer to the sound."

Voices is fueled by rage, the realities of life and the ugliness of the world we live in. Opening track, “Writing on the Wall” is about making sure you don’t allow yourself to be held down by your past. “You’re Nothing” is dedicated to the asshole who repeatedly tells you how great his life is, all the while living a complete facade. With “Suffocate” lead vocalist, Matthew Whiteman touches on the different types of addiction we all carry with us through life, whether they come from the pursuit of material possessions, giving into to drug culture or whatever one may be attached to. “Sound of the Voices Screaming” gives an audience the power to rise as one, while the Ep’s closer, “New Breed” instructs the band’s fans to distance themselves from people who claim to have their best interests at heart while leading them down a road that will eventually lead them to a life of peril. A call to arms for people to stand up for themselves.

Red Tide Rising has been a professional working band for eight long years now. Take into account that lead vocalist and resident protagonist Matthew Whiteman is all of 21 years old and his cohorts aren’t much older – we will let you do the math on where they all were in life when this band took shape.

Produced & co-written by Drowning Pool drummer Mike Luce (with the exception of “You’re Nothing” which was co-written with Luce and Ill Nino guitarist Ahrue Luster), the Denver quartet had formed a kinship with Luce in the winter of 2014 when they slugged it out across the United States on a six week tour that took them coast to coast. "Aside from our run with In This Moment a little while back, our first taste at unrelenting touring was with Drowning Pool," relates guitarist, Andrew Whiteman. "We shared the bus and formed some of the best friendships out on the road. To this day I am actually still a tech for them. It's because of that run and that friendship, that Luce decided he wanted to produce Voices."

Working with engineer Jeff Kanan (Madonna, Kelly Clarkson, Jeff Lorber) at The Keep Studio in Denver, Voices is unrelenting in its brutality, and yet, polished and commercially accessible at the same time. "I was so excited to go into studio with Jeff again!" exclaims Andrew. "He is a total pro behind the board, but more importantly he is very easy to work with. The studio can be stressful, but working with him, especially on this project, made recording one of the easiest and most creative processes I have experienced. The songs speak for themselves, they came out perfect."
No 1 Left Standing
No 1 Left Standing
Named for their approach to the music business, "No 1 Left Standing" is leaving just that in their wake. 2 time winner of 106.7 KBPI's Best Band in Denver Contest, this "Aggressive Hip-Hop", 6 piece live band has left the competition in their seats time and time again. Formed by front man James Belarde, this diverse collection of musicians screams talent and originality. Often compared to
"Rage against the Machine", most likely due to the politically charged, no holds barred nature of their music, anyone who spends time near this group can sense success on the horizon for the "gas mask society".
Live and on stage is the place to catch No 1 Left Standing if you truly want to get the full picture of what this band is all about. Energy and intensity are their trademarks and they bring it to the stage on every occasion. You may have seen them on a number of KBPI bills opening for the likes of Korn, Avenged Sevenfold and other industry names. You might have also caught them amongst the ranks of monthly showcase performances from 8th ElemEnt Entertainment, a Colorado-Based Independent Record Label with which the band teamed up in 2011 to release their first full-length album: "Fine American Mental Product" or "F.A.M.P.". Since joining the team, "No 1 Left" has continued to flourish, adding new dimensions to their repertoire and finding a home amongst the confines of what is quickly becoming Colorado's largest and most prominent entertainment organization.
Plans for the future show signs of nothing but further progress. Tour locations are being opened all over the country and you are likely to see No 1 Left Standing in your city very soon. Physical and digital distribution of the current and future projects provides mass access to this once underground treasure. The band's next album, titled "Day of the Dog" is slated for release in December 2012 with production from Colorado Sound, Denver's premier recording studio and release under 8th ElemEnt Entertainment.
