“This single is our strongest of the three songs that we wanted to release this year. We believe ‘Stuck On Repeat’ is the best representation of how our song writing has evolved over time; “All killer and no filler” has been a reoccurring response we’ve received from industry professionals.

This single was brought to it’s fullest potential with the help of producer Matt Good (From First to Last). He has a way of bringing out the best in you while making the recording process an enjoyable experience.
Although it’s message is serious in tone, the song is catchy and will have you jumping to the beat.” – AFTER THE CALM

After the Calm started from a living room jam session on Memorial Day of 2014 with friends Kody Rattler (Drums), David Nuñez (Guitar), and Henry Cota Jr. (Bass). Jonathan Habermacher (Guitar) joined the band shortly after the initial meeting. The search for a singer was long, but with the luck of a Craigslist ad, the band had added Logan Miracle (Vocals) as the final piece to their puzzle.

Their influences range from System of a Down to Blink-182; their sound is often compared to A Day To Remember and Four Year Strong. Some songs will have metal riffs while others tread on the line of pop-punk. There is definitely something for everyone, whether they want to mosh or just jump up and sing along. On October 15th, 2016, After the Calm released their debut EP, Ignis Fatuus, hosting a sold out show at local venue Joe’s Grotto. Their on-stage energy and crowd engagement lead them to opening for international acts such as I See Stars, I Prevail, and WATERPARKS. Their sound and hard work earned them a slot on the final Van’s Warped Tour 18’ in Arizona. Aside from playing shows, the band has worked on giving back to their community by raising money for the Arizona Humane Society through various fundraisers.

I, Apollo Release Lyric Video for “Surface”

NLI_DTL_04132016_999_1Post Hardcore quintet I, Apollo have released the lyric video for their track “Surface”, off of their Stranded EP. “Surface” was inspired by The Governor, a character from the AMC TV series, The Walking Dead. Featuring the album artwork by Dan Mumford (A Day to RememberMiss May I), Corbin Thomas of wellcan media (StarsetMaroon FiveBlack Sabbath/Ozzy OsbourneAmerican Music Awards) brings this lyric video to life.

The sense of hopelessness, helplessness, loneliness and pain created by The Governor’s evil deeds are illustrated through the song’s deep, dark lyrics. Intense flashing lyrics harken to lightening on a dark, stormy night as a girl stands alone atop a cliff looking over a city off in the distance, out of reach. Tentacles, a metaphor for The Governor’s evil, reach from the depths of hell to claim one more victim. Facing the choice between evil and an unknown fate, our heroine leaps from the cliff into a deep pit of uncertainty. The video ends with the girl once again standing atop a cliff, facing the future with hope.

“If your a Walking Dead fan, the Metaphors are strong in this one”. – Brendyn Moxley

10456242_680916478682176_4616562476104802020_nDubbed “The Millennium Falcon of Metalcore,” I,Apollo is a metalcore quintet from a small town in Ohio featuring Cole Smith (Guitar), Brendyn Moxley (Vocals), Justin Coleman (Guitar), Andrew (Droopy) Laird(Bass), and Quinten Hurd (Drums).

I, Apollo started touring before anyone in the band was 21. So far they have completed 3 tours hitting 22 states. In addition to touring with numerous bands including direct support for I Set My Friends on Fire, they have also played sold out shows, packed houses, and music festivals with such notable acts as All That RemainsStarsetSlipknot, and many others.

I, Apollo recorded their five song EP titled Stranded with Josh Schroederat Random Awesome! Studios in Bay City, MI. The band, known for their heavy promotion, passed out well over 3,000 demos before the official release of the EP. “The funny thing about passing out physical demos is you never see any other bands working the streets like we do. Meeting people you would never reach online.” This has been a major accomplishment for I, Apollo, gaining over 5,000 true fans on Facebook by working the streets and touring.

“These young guns have everything that it takes to make that next step and I believe they are well on their way.” – The Rustbelt Chronicles

The band wrote the Stranded EP in 2014 and scheduled studio time to record the five songs. Listening to scratch tracks the night before the recording session, the band decided to relieve their then vocalist of his duties. “It just wasn’t what we wanted to sound like.” With this move, the band had no lyrics, no vocalist, but headed to the Random Awesome! studios anyway. The plan was to just record instrumentals only.
Once in the studio, the band decided to rewrite all the lyrics. Brendyn Moxley, moved from guitar to the mic and nailed it. I, Apollo found the sound they were looking for.

The songs on the EP tackle everything from the AMC TV show “The Walking Dead,” relationships, betrayal, growing up, honesty, life experiences and modern dilemmas. The band comes through the music expressing views that speak directly to disenfranchised youth, music lover, and the down and out looking for a voice in today’s music.
In love with music from an early age, I, Apollo lives, breathes and eats metal.

Alorion Releases “Faint” (Linkin Park Cover) Music Video

Southern California based Alternative Rock band Alorion have released a music video for their cover of Linkin Park‘s #1 hit “Faint” which was directed by the band Movements (Fearless Records). Alorion burst on to the scene last Summer with their debut EP Between Calm & Chaos which was recorded by Tom Denney (A Day To Remember) and is available now on iTunes.

We chose to cover Linkin Park because for some of us, it was that first bridge into rock music. We also share a similar dynamic with the two different styles of vocalists in the band. We thought it was a great idea to nod to a band that’s so influential into what we are doing and why we are here, all while creating something new with a song we love.Alorion
