With the 4onthefloor’s third release, All In, frontman, Gabriel Douglas, wants the band’s next album to be driving and immediate; something that speaks to the growing audience of the band. “You don’t need a time machine to experience this record and this isn’t a kid playing with a laptop in their closet,” said Douglas. The band wanted to showcase their roots in blues and also the immediacy of post-pop punk with the hooks & sing-a-longs you’d find in all the best road trip anthems. All songs on this record were written with a notable high octane, and the furious delivery can be heard throughout the tracks.
Denver CO-based The Yawpers is comprised of Nate Cook (vocals and guitar), Jesse Parmet (guitar and harmonies), and Noah Shomberg (drums). The band self-released their debut album (Capon Crusade), an EP (Savage Blue) and a covers album (Good Songs/Shitty Versions); and on October 30, 2015 they released their sophomore album American Man on label Bloodshot Records. Throughout their short career, The Yawpers have played shows with Delta Spirit, Lucero, The Reverend Horton Heat, The Black Angels, Wanda Jackson, Cracker, and Blind Pilot, and they have toured the US with Nashville Pussy and The Blasters.
The Coax is a psych-rock outfit based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Heavily influenced by garage bands of the 60’s and rock and roll bands of the 70’s, their post-punk sound captured in studio is replicated live with a raw energy that is undeniable.
What started as the solo project of singer/songwriter, Tom Lescovich, The Coax formed in 2014 and has since been transformed into a well-oiled machine engineered by Jeff Kruse, Dustin Possehl, and Mike Frahm. It wasn’t until December of 2015 that the four began creating together. The addition of Frahm on the drum kit elevated the band’s sound, making it a much faster and mean machine.
