Guttermouth is an American punk rock band formed in 1988 in Huntington Beach, California and currently recording for Hopeless Records. They have released nine full-length studio albums and two live albums and have toured extensively, including performances on the Vans Warped Tour. They are infamous for their outrageous lyrics and behavior which are deliberately explicit, offensive and intended to shock, though usually in a humorous and sarcastic manner.
It’s been over 14 years since Vic, Tommy & E-Ball started The Koffin Kats in their parent’s basement and played for beer in local Detroit bars. A psychobilly/punk band with influences ranging from The Damned to The Stray Cats, The Koffin Kats have covered a lot of ground. Nine albums later, a few member chaanges, and over 2000 live shows from international tour… the founding lineup returned in 2016.
Six years after his departure, Tommy Koffin returned to playing guitar with The Koffin Kats. With Vic Victor on lead vocals and upright bass, and E. Ball Walls on drums. The trio has released a new album called “Party Time In The End Times.” They will be touring North America and Europe throughout 2017.
The Atom Age
The Atom Age find their inspiration from the dust covered collections of unhinged 60’s Punk and R&B, whose crazed energy was once misconceived as a better fit for your trashcan than for your turntable. While taking many of their cues from these primitive pilgrims of punk, The Atom Age still strive to lay down their own modernized sound.
Being raised in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains and stemming from three chord punk rock provides for a unique twist on traditional instruments. With their first album “Empty Flask, Empty Heart”, the songs are described as an “aggressive yet melodic collection” ranging from fast and punchy tales of rambling and love. to dark and soulful songs birthed from whiskey and regret.
“Their live set is performed as impeccably as their studio set, and you really can feel how much energy, love, and emotion is poured not only into their writing but into their performance.”
Conceived in fire, from the ashes of The Albino Spiders, is the cult- Switchblade Saturdays. An ambitiously hard-hitting band, well-traveled, with a strong foundation within their home base, Des Moines, IA. Switchblade Saturdays is known for their amazing live show, dark imagery and stage presence with a passionate background anthem haunting of love, loss, death, and life. Switchblade has woven their blood into every lyric and every melody, “We bring the crowd into our music the way a phantom entices it’s prey…we play every show as if it were our last, with a vengeance!” hisses Zarrie Solum, lead vocalist/bassist and founding member. “Our fans are our family and blood!!” says Switchblade, who’s fans are reminiscent of a cult or gang displaying the Switchblade Saturdays logo patches, buttons, and bandanna’s. Pumping fists, chanting, singing, fans hang onto every harrowing word of talented lead singer Zarrie. The music is brought into harmonious alignment with Josh Darnell on guitar / background vocals and rounded out with Ben Watson thundering rhythms only ones’ heart could dream.!
! The Switchblade sound was formed by the take of various influences, Misfits, The Damned, AFI, Alkaline Trio, Dillinger 4, Guns n Roses and Social Distortion. “I took a little influence from each band and wanted to have a live show reminiscent of the old days of Alice Cooper, Kiss, and Iron Maiden” hails Solum. “
Our sound is shedding it’s skin and being reborn.”! !
! Since it’s conception in 2010, the band has been fortunate enough to share the stage with bands such as: Motionless In White, Get Scared, Bam Margera’s Fuckface Unstoppable Tour, New Year’s Day, Falling In Reverse, Hatebreed, As I Lay Dying, Zao, P.O.D., Motorhead, Norma Jean, Alkaline Trio, Eyes Set To Kill, Fight or Flight, and the list goes on. Michael Graves (Misfits) is a noted fan of Switchblade and has been seen wearing their shirts and handing out Switchblade stickers at his shows. The band’s demo track “Zed’s Dead” is in the cult classic independent zombie movie Escape From The Dead. Switchblade Saturdays was asked to film a video of the song as part of the collector DVD.
! 2017 upholds a promising year for Switchblade with the recording of 2 EP’s and 1 Full- Length release later in the year. The band is beginning their 2017 touring line-up with 2 dates to start in Austin, TX at South By Southwest in March!
