This Legend - "Holiday from Crazy"

Artist Bio:

This Legend bio: It’s no surprise that creating a band takes a lot of work, but coming out of previously successful bands and having to start from scratch takes honest passion. For the first time in over ten years, best friends Longineu Parsons III “LP” and Ben Harper, both formerly of Yellowcard, re-united in May, 2014. They have enlisted Chris Castillo of 'Stanley and the Search' and Steven Neufeld of 'HeyMike!' to form 'This Legend'.

With a world renowned trumpet player as a dad, it was inevitable that LP would become an unstoppable musician. Starting at the tender age of two, LP quickly picked up the drums with the help of professionals drum instructors Max Roach and Art Blakey. Fast forward several years, LP would meet soo-to-be best friend and guitarist Ben Harper at Douglas Anderson School of The Arts. The two formed what would become the well known pop-punk band 'Yellowcard' and toured the world together for many years. Harper would later leave Yellowcard to continue his musical endeavors with his self-founded label, Takeover Records. One of his first signings would be 'HeyMike!', a punk band from Camarillo, CA. The band saw moderate success throughout the mid-2000’s with the help of Harper’s guidance. Harper and Neufeld, the band’s singer/guitarist, became close friends during their time working together. Also spawning from the local scene, Castillo (having previously played in several San Gabriel Valley bands including 'Stanley and the Search') caught the attention of NOFX guitarist El Hefe and wife Jen Abeyta, as a significantly talented singer/songwriter.

After LP’s departure from Yellowcard in March of 2014, he partnered with Harper to collaborate again. Unsure of what was to come musically, the duo wanted to lean on El Hefe for advice. El Hefe suggested they begin writing with Castillo, a musician he and Jen had taken under their wing for some time. After solidifying a singer, guitarist and drummer, a bassist and backing vocalist was needed. The group enlisted long time friend Neufeld to fill the slot. 2014 would prove to be the perfect year of break-ups and make-ups. In May of 2014, the band would sign to 'Cyber Tracks', an LA based record label owned by El Hefe (guitarist of NOFX) and Jen Abeyta. Upon selecting the band name 'This Legend', LP stated, “It's a positive statement to say, 'no matter who you are and no matter how many times you get put down in the world, you can look at yourself in the mirror and see a legend'.”

The Obvious - "Dr., Dr."

More about the band... Shop!

Artist Bio:

The Obvious artfully combine late 70's punk and early 90's alternative with their own demented twist, making gritty ear candy of their catchy tunes.

About The Video: This video captures the visceral and frothing expression the band is known for in both live and recorded performances. Violent, pissed-off, and unhinged, The Obvious feed off of almost supernatural energy in a way that could be described as posessed by hints of legitimate insanity. Producer: Travis Meyers / JT Haberstat

Left Alone - "Leather Bound Book "

More about the band... Shop!

Artist Bio:

Left Alone returns in their true form, serving up their strongest and most aggressive record to date. With the catchy sing along punk rock, up beat ska, and a little country, Harbor Area is an 11 song collection that is packed full of what Left Alone is known for. The band recorded this album with long time friend and producer TJ Rivera (Rufio/Nitro Records/Poor Habit/ Fat Records) in August 2012. They tracked over 20 songs and released the Hate the Day EP in 2013 for a Japan tour from those sessions. After Cortez took a break in 2013 from recording to tour and play guitar with The Transplants and Tim Timebomb and Friends, the band returned to the studio in early 2014 to put together the songs that would eventually become Harbor Area. The inspiration behind this record comes from the personal experiences that lead singer Elvis Cortez (one of the hardest working punk rockers today) has accumulated growing up in the South Bay of Los Angeles, an area that spews over with gang violence, crime and overall sense of no future. The album kicks off with the explosive song ‘Harbor Area’ which speaks of the violence and death that plagues the streets that Cortez calls home, and ends with the song “Malcontent’ which explores the inner struggles of growing up on the streets of Wilmington. Simply put, this album lyrically establishes a new level of personal insight that is rare to find in todays lackluster music. Speaking within the confinements of the 110 Fwy, The 405, the 710 and the Port of Wilmington. Harbor Area is a love letter by Cortez to his hometown and the place where it all began.

Long Lost Love - "Gangsta on the Roof"

Artist Bio:

Long Lost Love bio:

Singer-guitarist Michael Guerrero might have already made his mark as ¼ of hardcore upstarts A Hero to Fall, but this up-and-comer can hit just as hard with an acoustic guitar and a melodious voice. With his new one-man band Long Lost Love, Guerrero has tapped into the softer side of his musical background to create an emotional, stripped-down debut with the EP Nostalgia.

The project name and EP title are a nod to the kind of singer-songwriter material that Guerrero had put on the backburner for so many years while focusing on his part in A Hero to Fall. In high school he had started out playing and writing songs on an acoustic. It was only when he had been gifted an electric guitar that he found himself favoring heavier material over what he started out playing.

Long Lost Love began as an outlet for Guerrero’s newly reinvigorated interest in the softer material that didn’t fit in with the music he was creating with his co-conspirators in A Hero to Fall. For the singer-songwriter, there is as much power in this material as there is in the hardcore heights of his regular gig; while the projects may be mutually exclusive, the time and passion he puts into them are not.

Michael Guerrero hails from Santa Rosa, California. His influences include City and Colour, This Wild Life, Rise Against, & Circa Survive. Not one to rest on his laurels, Guerrero has been pursuing his degree in Early Childhood Education while working full time on A Hero to Fall and Long Lost Love.

About The Video: This video was created by John Howe, and he really did a great job capturing the emotions and feelings I had while writing this song! Enjoy!
