Astpai - "2000 Pills"

Artist Bio:

Blasting out of a dirty basement’s rehearsal room there comes the straight forward punkrock sound of Austria’s very own ASTPAI. Their Hardcore/Punk sound comes along with both very personal as well as political views and offers some new ideas without just presenting shallow paroles and drained statements.

ASTPAI has been a consistently touring band for five years now, including destinations such as Western-, Central-, and Eastern Europe as well as the USA, Canada and Russia.

In a total of ten years the band has shared stages with numerous international acts like Anti-Flag, Flogging Molly, Leftöver Crack, Fucked Up, Paint It Black, The Flatliners, Dead To Me, A Wilhelm Scream, The Casting Out (Ex-Boysetsfire), and many more.

ASTPAI love to be busy and they’re busy with what they love.

About The Video:

The video was shot in about two hours at Suburbia, Brooklyn, NY. The song deals with the topic of Crohns Disease, which lead singer Zock has been diagnosed with about 7 years ago, followed by major surgery. Captain Crohn is played by Kyle William Campol.

Director and Produced by: Emmanuel V. Cruz II

American Pinup - "Far Away"

More about the band... Shop!

Artist Bio:

With their distinctive, A Clockwork Orange influenced image, sensational live shows and catchy, anthemic songs, American Pinup emerged from the suburban sprawl and unsung underground music scene of Westchester County, New York and brought along an original brand of fierce, exuberant performance that is just as wild as it is charming. The indie/punk four-piece was pegged by AMP magazine as the "voice of the new decade" and combines elements of rockabilly, surf rock, punk, pop, folk, and ska to create a unique and fresh alternative sound. Blending the DIY ethos of the punk scene with a reverence for the melody and simplicity intrinsic to pop music, American Pinup has carved out their own niche in the world of independent music. Their debut record was released in 2011 on Altercation Records, followed by a split with New Jersey punk rock hard-hitters Lost In Society in 2012.

American Pinup has appeared at festivals such as Vans Warped Tour, The Fest, SXSW, Move Music Festival, Red Gorilla, Valley of the Vapors, Tinderbox Music Festival, Philly FM Fest, Upstart Fest, and many more since coming on to the scene. They have also been featured on compilation records such as Blood, Sweat, and Punk, Vol. 1 released by Altercation Records, the Punk for Progress compilation to raise money for V-Day.org, a global movement to end violence again women and girls, which features artists such as The Bouncing Souls, and most recently, the international compilation Punkabilly Shakes the World, Vol. 2 released by Japanese label Rude Runner Records.

The band is currently touring in support of their sophomore full-length release, Change Machine, released on September 3, 2013.

The video was made in bits and pieces over a long period of time and is a surreal dream sequence that aims to produce a sense of longing, but for something very vaguely defined. The band's frontwoman actually drove that cool, old rat rod, which is how she learned to appreciate power steering.

Director Name: Jon Leyton

The band’s name, Calling of Lorme, is a direct reference to MD Charles Delorme who, at the time of the plague, invented the mask with the crow shape to protect from the dangers of the illness. The band’s universe will grow from this point of reference, dealing with subjects regarding sicknesses and medicine, added by more general subjects like corporatism, fanaticism, feelings and human relationship. This is transcribed on stage with a powerful and martial music, bonded with a theatrical show and an original light show.

In 2012 the band will find their first audience acknowledgements and gain access to venues such as L’Usine (Istres) or L’Alhambra (Paris). After many line up changes which will mark this year, the band welcomes in it’s ranks Seth and Vin'Z as guitarists. 2013 will mark the realease of the band's debut album.

The Adicts - "Give It To Me Baby"

More about the band... Shop!

Artist Bio:

With their distinctive, A Clockwork Orange influenced image, sensational live shows and catchy, anthemic songs, The Adicts are one of the most easily recognizable punk bands of all time. Formed in 1976, when Sunderland brothers Pete Dee and Kid Dee Davison joined forces with Monkey and Mel Ellis, The Adicts, also briefly known as ADX have released nine studio, and three live albums in their career. Their most recent release 'All The Young Droogs' has brought the band full circle, blending their early influences with their classic sound.

Based in Ipswich, England, The Adicts were always the jokers in the punk rock pack. The flamboyant 'Droog' image, and their urgent, high energy, up-tempo music and light-hearted lyrics, ensured The Adicts always stood out from the rest of the punk-rock fraternity.

'It may have been a conscious effort to set ourselves against the somewhat unimaginative appearance of early '80s punk bands or just a perception that looking a certain way might be interesting and entertaining,' explained front man, Monkey.

The Adicts' debut album, Songs Of Praise (which many consider an absolute must-have punk rock classic) was released in 1981, and reached number 15 in the UK Indie charts, while the follow up, Sound Of Music released a year later, blazed a trail in the same charts, peaking at number 2.

Subsequent single hits in the 80s including 'Chinese Takeaway' and 'Bad Boy', television and video game placements for the song 'Viva La Revolution', as well as constant touring has helped The Adicts maintain a loyal and devoted fan-base all across the world.

Despite the chart success, The Adicts are best known for their live performances, which some have described as part childhood birthday party and part carnival - complete with confetti, streamers, magic tricks and outlandish outfits. 35 years into their career, The Adicts are still entertaining and amazing crowds with their inimitable blend of high theatrics and good-time rock and roll.

'Our message, such as it is, has always been, have fun,' Monkey stated, attempting to define the secret of their longevity. 'That's timeless and appeals to everyone.'

Hot Damn - "I Am Not An Island"

More about the band... Shop!

Band Bio:

Forming in late 2009, Hot Damn is a South Wales based, 5 piece pop-punk band that spent little time establishing themselves on the national scene. Their first few months were spent moulding their sound into something that best reflected the message and atmosphere they were trying to portray, and after experimenting with everything from easy-core to post-rock, they’ve found themselves a niche sound somewhere between the family-friendly sensibilities of folk-pop and the lyrical realism and vocal raw emotion of contemporary emo – think Transit taking Basement outside a bar, and having a very serious word.

In the two short years they’ve been together they’ve released 3 EPs, including a split with Swedish pop-punkers Tag Your Targets, who in 2011 they embarked on their first full UK tour with; they’ve also toured the country with Alabama heavyweights Carridale and shared stages with industry giants like With The Punches, Save Your Breath, Don Broco, Basement and The Wonder Years. The future looks incredibly bright for this band, with them set to return to The Ranch Productions studio with esteemed producer Neil Kennedy to record their follow up to their very well received 2012 EP “This Weather Makes It Feel Like Home"and the eagerly awaited follow up to 'This Weather' to be released 2/2/13 'Sleep Alone' is set truly launch them onto the international stage, Hot Damn are gearing up nicely to follow in the footsteps of artists like Kids In Glass Houses and Save Your Breath and put South Wales pop-punk back on the map.

Maker - "Shadows"

More about the band... Shop!

Band Bio:

Taking equal parts urgency and angst, Maker has been weaving forceful and undeniably catchy songs for the better part of 5 years now. Their latest EP, simply entitled "Maker", is a testament to their hard work and dedication as songwriters and musicians. The "Maker" EP is being released on November 13th through Engineer records in the UK/Europe, distributed in the U.S.A by Asbestos Records, and on vinyl via Black Numbers. This 5 song EP showcases the maturity they have been striving to hit ever since they started Maker in a Massachusetts basement some few years ago.

"Maker" is the follow up to last years critically acclaimed full length "Mirrors", which was released on CD/Digital on 6131 records and on vinyl via Animal Style records, respectively. They recorded this new EP at Zing Studios in Westfield, Massachusetts with the help of producer/engineer Eric Arena (A Day To Remember, Farewell To Freeway, The Modern Day Saint) and Jim Fogarty (The Devil Wears Prada, All That Remains, Arrows Over Athens). They recently shot a video for their first single "Shadows" with director Rob Soucy (Make Do And Mend, Defeater, A Loss For Words) and just finished up a UK tour with platinum recording artist Hawthorne Heights. From November 16th-December 23rd they are heading out on a full US tour with Major League (No Sleep Records) and Turnover (Run For Cover Records).

Maker has been known for their relentless touring prowess and is poised to finally create their own niche of Indie infused pop-punk and become a staple in the music scene. With a slew of tours and releases under their belt and armed with a new EP, Maker looks to be sure that anyone and everyone will hear what they have to say. Will you be listening?
