The Second After
The Second After
Emerging from a genre which has connected so profoundly with teens and young adults for many years, yet also often regarded as stale with repetitive, predictable melodies and generic lyrics to outsiders, The Second After brings a refreshing and unique sound to Pop-Punk. Their long lived passion for playing music together, combined with their dynamically intertwined individual backgrounds in such genres as Pop, Punk, Hardcore, Acoustic, Folk, Rock, and Progressive Rock/Metal make for an enticing take on the Pop-Punk/Easy-core sound. With deeply intricate and hard-thought melodies and harmonies, combined with "bouncy" and exciting energetic riffs, this quintet from Durham, NC is prepared to take their music scene by storm, and reignite a passion for a genre that has meant so much to so many.
Dear Desolate
Dear Desolate
Dear Desolate is a 5 piece NĂ¼-Metal band hailing from Raleigh, NC. The name serves as a constant reminder that without passion to fill voids, life is bleak.

Dear Desolate is a band consisting of different beliefs in all aspects of life. Their basic message is to think individually and to respect any opinion that someone may have.

The group which consists of Christopher Walsh, Tyler Davis, Brandon Garrison, and Jeffy Capozzoli, recorded and released their first EP in December 2013 titled 'The Fiction Diary.' In May of 2014 Dear Desolate picked up Kristofer Sunico and soon released their two singles 'Live Free or Die' and 'Pulling Teeth' produced by Drew Fulk and Kile Odell.
Messenger Down
Messenger Down
"In order to really fall in love with music again, I had to fall out of love with everything I thought I loved about music... and if there's anything I want you to take away from this new music it's simply that. Sometimes before you can ever really find yourself you have to lose yourself first."

Established in 2012 as an outlet for multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Garrett Foster, Messenger Down has faced more change in it's few years than most artists see in 10. Pairing raw instrumentation and soaring melodies with electronic soundscapes and pop sensibility, this Charlotte, NC native's eclectic and ever-changing brand of Alternative music takes on an identity all it's own. His new EP, Cheating Death, is a breath of fresh air for Foster himself and music listeners alike; one you'll want to breathe in as deeply as your lungs will allow and hold until you're blue in the face.

Don't forget to tell your friends.
