THE BAD MAN and LUNCH DUCHESS
Shredders is the new rap project from Doomtree members P.OS, Sims, Lazerbeak, and Paper Tiger. Their debut album Dangerous Jumps was released on Doomtree Records in late 2017. Created over the course of a prolific six month break, Dangerous Jumps bursts with carefree energy and booming bass. P.O.S and Sims consistently one-up each other with dizzying wordplay and anthemic hooks over an unrelenting, uptempo soundtrack scored by veteran producers Lazerbeak and Paper Tiger.
First single “Xanthrax” was premiered by the one and only Dwyane “The Rock” Johnson on his HBO hit series Ballers and the group has had multiple songs placed in recent UFC, Need For Speed, and MLB video games. Shredders have hit the road hard in 2018, running circles around North America with European dates and festival plays planned throughout the summer. They’ve shared the stage with a diverse range of acclaimed artists including Run The Jewels, The Underachievers, Bishop Briggs, Astronautalis, and Paper Diamond.
THE BAD MAN
THE BAD MAN: Named a Best New Band of 2017 by First Avenue, City Pages Picked to Click in 2018, and fronted by one of the Twin Cities’ “most dynamic and devilish rock ‘n’ roll frontmen” (per Chris Riemenschneider of the Star Tribune), The Bad Man is no stranger to fun. Known for their unpredictable and adrenaline-fueled performances, the band delivers a danceable, rowdy rock sound driven by guitar, saxophone, and a back-alley bounce. “Bum a ride, see ’em live, they’re worth the cover charge.”
Launched in 2016 with the EP, My Mom Says I Have A Rich Inner Life, Minneapolis grunge-pop band Lunch Duchess has continued to make cathartic jams for the sardonic and the heartbroken. Their latest single, “Ride or Die,” questions the wisdom of unconditional romantic love and ends up giving the listener permission to free themselves from dire entanglements. Over the years, front person/drummer Katharine Seggerman has used songwriting as a therapeutic exercise: sitting with difficult situations until the truth materializes in a melody, and then protecting that truth with the help of a loud rock band.
