IRON REAGAN are no strangers to the art of crossover. Comprised of Tony Foresta (vocals), Phil Hall (guitar), Mark Bronzino (guitar), Rob Skotis (bass), and Ryan Parrish (drums), between them they fill, or have filled the ranks of Municipal Waste, Cannabis Corpse and Darkest Hour alike. Now, with their recent signing to metal powerhouse Relapse Records, the hardcore thrash quintet are ready to take their bruising antics to the next level.
Night Birds is comprised of four thoroughly modern morons from the New Jersey shore and Brooklyn, NY. After one listen it will only seem right that these guys spawn from the same state that brought you such class acts as the Misfits and Adrenalin OD. This high-octane surf-inspired punk rock band formed in the spring of 2009 following the demise of bassist Joe Keller's band, The Ergs! While they take cues from the greats of 1980's hardcore/punk bands like the Circle Jerks, Zero Boys, and Adolescents, they still manage to keep it new and fresh and consistently take it to that next level. To date, the band has released three 7" EPs as well as their 2011 debut album, The Other Side of Darkness on Grave Mistake Records (with a new 7" and LP just around the corner!), as well as playing nearly 200 shows all over the United States, Canada, and Europe. If you like Seinfeld, pizza, horror movies, or any combination of the three, Night Birds may be your new favorite band.
Miami, FL noise rock quartet WRONG formed in 2014 from the ashes of Capsule and released their debut EP Stop Giving last October via Robotic Empire. Featuring former members of Torche and Kylesa amongst their ranks, WRONG play Helmet / Unsane inspired heavy noise rock and were described by Noisey as an "outfit with impeccable credentials and a firm handle on the art of the bludgeoning groove" and by PunkNews as "very promising indeed".
WRONG signed with Relapse Records in the summer of 2015 after making waves on their first North American tour with Torche and Nothing. The band will spend the rest of 2015 touring with House of Lightning and will put the finishing touches on their debut full-length at PineCrust studios in Gainesville, FL this August. The debut will see an early 2016 release while the band will continue to bring their relentless live show to a neighborhood near you for years to come.
