Wovenwar’s introductory, self-titled album, debuted at #36 on the Billboard Top 200 charts upon its release in 2014. Prior to that successful launch of a new band, in the spring of 2013, the members of As I Lay Dying – Nick, Phil Sgrosso [guitar], Josh Gilbert [bass, vocals], Jordan Mancino [drums]-made an important decision. They had seen tremendous success, selling over one million albums, enjoying a Top 10 debut on the Billboard Top 200 with 2010’s The Powerless Rise and a Top 15 debut with 2012’s Awakened, and touring globally alongside the likes of Slipknot, Slayer, Suicide Silence, Killswitch Engage, and more. Facing tumultuous controversy related to their singer and a shattering foundation shakeup, these four musicians decided to press on and do what they do best. Wovenwar’s self-titled debut was released in August of 2014 to widespread critical acclaim. On iTunes, the album peaked at #2 on the rock charts, and #1 on the metal charts during its week of release. Revolver Magazine heralded the album as “more multifaceted than anything by As I Lay Dying,” and Decibel Magazine added that “Wovenwar sounds confident, vital, and even liberated on this splendid debut.”

Formed in 2005 by guitarist and tech-guru Misha Mansoor, Periphery released their self-titled, debut album in the spring of 2010. In the few years since the band’s introduction, the members of Periphery (vocalist Spencer Sotelo, Mansoor, guitarists Jake Bowen and Mark Holcomb, bassist Adam Getwood and drummer Matt Halpern) have been heralded as some of heavy music’s best and brightest new players and innovators. They have landed on the covers of Guitar World, Modern Drummer and Bass Player magazines for their adept skill at balancing technically innovative playing alongside songwriting that’s “enjoyable, occasionally evocative, and often brilliant” (Metal Sucks). The band’s 2012 release, Periphery II: This Time It’s Personal established “their own sonic territory” with their sophomore album, emphasizing “melody and texture over heaviness, resulting in a more mature and accessible sound (Revolver).” Rolling Stone recently profiled Mansoor in their “Young Guns” series, highlighting the next generation’s most notable guitar players.

Hailing from San Antonio, NOTHING MORE is a four-headed musical hydra that runs on frenetic passion, unswerving DIY spirit and relentless sonic experimentation. Part schizoid System Of A Down weird-isms, part Mars Volta-esque prog rock freak out, part effortless pop nous; they seamlessly barrel from churning headbang to skyscraping chorus and back again in the blink of an eye. Capable of bombastic bounce that hits as hard as an uppercut to the jaw when they fancy it, the band is equally able to dial down the bluster into deft moments of crystalline beauty when the mood takes them. It’s a gut-punching blend made all the more powerful by a keen lyrical sophistication and philosophical undertone, which both belies their years and marks them out from their contemporaries. Artist Direct goes to the heart of NOTHING MORE’s appeal “(NOTHING MORE) indisputably stand out from their peers, yet they can enjoy mass consumption and unanimous radio play because they write intricately irresistible songs. The trick is they find that delicate balance between technical grandiosity and catchy palatability. That’s why they’re so important to rock music right now. They’re crucial to its future and how it flourishes in the same way that Tool, Deftones, and At the Drive-In were upon first debuting. Simply put, we need Nothing More.”

Hailing from New Jersey, Thank You Scientist is an experimental, progressive rock septet comprised of Salvatore Marrano (vocals), Tom Monda (guitar), Ellis Jasenovic (saxophonist), Andrew Digrius (trumpet), Greg Colacino (bass), Odin Alvarez (drums) and Ben Karas (violin). The band fuses elements of rock, jazz, classical and metal on their new album, Maps of Non-Existent Places, which was recently released via Coheed and Cambria front man Claudio Sanchez’s label Evil Ink Records.
