Death Bells
Death Bells
There’s something unmistakably grand about Death Bells. Many contemporary bands have incorporated sonic elements of the ‘80s into their sound, but few have managed to capture the sheer scope and allure of that era like Death Bells with their brand of searing post-punk and shimmering dream pop. Their songs are a study in contrast, effortlessly combining dark intrigue with unabashedly massive hooks — an aspect they partially attribute to the backdrop of their stunning Australian homeland. Now with the release of their upcoming single Echoes b/w Move Through Me, the band of ambitious punks will be moving from Sydney to Los Angeles, California, with their sights set across the sea, aiming to bring their music to a world as expansive as their sound.
Death Bells are no strangers to diving headfirst into their musical vision. The band started in 2014 with Will Canning (vocals) and Maurice Santiago (bass), both frequenters of the Sydney punk and hardcore scene, who shared a common goal and drive for a more refined project. Rounding out their lineup with Aron Postolovic (guitar), Remy Veselis (guitar), David Gauci (keyboards), and Sam Shepherd (drums), Death Bells quickly began to make a name for themselves and along the way Canning and Santiago’s determination led to the creation of their own label, Burning Rose. When it came time for Death Bells’ first EP, Burning Rose teamed with U.S. tastemaker, Funeral Party Records, and soon the band would tour the States for the first time and start expanding the label. As Canning puts it, “It started as an avenue to legitimize the band, but after we went to the U.S. we realized what we could really do, and it snowballed into a platform for artists and musicians within the community.”
King Slug

King Slug is a four piece garage rock n roll band coming out of El Dorado, Kansas. Yet another starry eyed group of boys looking to play every place that will let them in. Releasing their self recorded debut album "Monument Valley", you're able to catch some hot licks, tasty riffs, and a wave of feels. You can find it on Itunes, Amazon, Spotify, Bandcamp, and Soundcloud!
