A couple months ago we received a crazy email from these dudes completely out of the blue, raining down props on ReverbNation’s tools and services. Seriously, we couldn’t have scripted this story any better, but it all came from these guys. Cause apparently some really cool (and unexpected) stuff happened to them recently.  It all starts with a concert 2,000 feet above the ground…

After capturing worldwide attention with their debut EP, Changes, the duo are back with a new track and the official release date for Changes PT II.  We chatted with the guys to learn about their new EP, which features a guest appearance from Heems of Das Racist, the origin behind their name, and the role that two producers from diverse backgrounds play when it comes to writing and production.

One of the Best Showcases for Unsigned Bands: Camden Rocks Festival

What if you were given the opportunity to perform alongside punk legends The Damned, Orange Goblin, and Ruts/Ruts DC? How RAD would that be?!  Well, these are just a few of the bands headlining the 2017 Camden Rocks Festival on June 3, 2017. Camden Rocks Festival sees over 8,000 live music lovers along with agents, managers, A&R, and publicists take over Camden Town for the most rock n’ roll one day-er of the year.  With over 250 bands throughout 25 venues, Camden Rocks gives up-and-coming bands the chance to be heard – it’s manic and intimate all at once. We got with festival organizer Chris McCormack – formerly the driving force behind Creation Records ‘Britrock’ quartet 3 Colours Red and promoter behind Camden’s finest gig and club nights – to get an inside look at what goes down day of the festival, what he looks for when booking bands, and why Camden Town has long been the hub of the UK’s rock ‘n’ roll scene.
