Set it Off
Set it Off
Starting in 2008, after Cody Carson, then a student at the Oberlin College Conservatory of Music in Ohio, decided that his true passion was the road, and creating music that fans alike could relate to, moved home, where he reconnected with Kerr, Something and Clermont.

In the past year, the Tampa Florida based band released their second EP, Calm Before the Storm; played the Warped Tour; racked up nearly a dozen endorsements and were featured on Friends Or Enemies and in Alternative Press and Substream magazines. They are tireless performers, racking up some 200 gigs on a more than 10 tours since July 2008; racking past 80,000 miles on their van and even more voracious self-promoters, always looking for ways to connect with their many fans online and in person. They know the fans are what drives their career, so they do as much as possible to interact with them.

Feeling they've grown up from their trendy beginnings and tired with the generic sound in the scene as a whole, they’ve focused on developing a new sound for themselves, something they like to call “Orchestral Pop”, fusing their classical backgrounds (Carson and Clermont were both in Jazz band) with pop music, something they hope, will “Set It Off” in the industry.

Patent Pending
If the little engine that could was in a punk rock band, he would be in Patent Pending. Prior to attracting the attention of any record label, Patent Pending played hundreds of shows across the country, sold thousands of CDs & DVDs and amassed enough friends on Myspace to fill a small state. Recently the band has found a warm and loving home in We Put Out Records. With their first label release, "Save The Children, The Whales Are Doing Fine", will the little engine finally get some rest? Not until the entire world has witnessed the rock and roll party power of Patent Pending. Attacking the world from their Long Island headquarters, The P-Unit's, as they are also known as, main course of action has always been to give America something to dance to. The group is known for its outlandish live show, turning the most obstinate and stand-offish of crowds into instant believers and dance contest champions. Operating on a "no show too big, no show too small principal", the band can be found playing anywhere from the smallest of basements and coffee houses, to the Van's Warped Tour, opening up for Taking Back Sunday and Brand New and appeared, in studio, on Fuse TV's Daily Download. The band was chosen through Purevolume.com to play the first annual The Bamboozle Festival in NJ. Each member of Patent Pending grew up snacking on Pop-Rocks, Sipping on Kool-Aid and worshiping Bon-Jovi and Steve Urkel! With childhoods like that, starting a punk rock band that will one day take over the universe was almost inevitable! "This isn't about record sales, this isn't about TV," comments Joe. "This is about doing what we love for people that we love. We don't have fans, we have friends and they are the best in the universe." We are Patent Pending. We mosh because we care!
Lion Faced Boy
Lion Faced Boy
With their interesting mix of punk rock and rock and roll ethics these boys are coming out swinging. Less than a few months of being a band The Lion Faced Boy is gearing up for their debut tour and looking to drop their first E.P. "Cause and Infected". With their intense blend of guitar riffs, dynamics, and a high energy live show. It's no wonder why people are talking about The Lion Faced Boy. This band is here to stay and is doing it right. If nothing else do something good for your ears and check out this band.
