Ramona

Ramona is an East Coast band living on the West Coast. Diego (guitar/vox) and Abby (bass/vox) went to college together in Boston, Mass where they played music for a short time until Diego moved to Seattle. After a few years back in her native Philadelphia, Abby moved to Seattle to start up a new band with Diego where they met Shannon (drums) who they instantly knew was a perfect fit and had moved from New York City a few years prior. Armed with a few songs from their college days, they got to practicing and writing; quickly gathering a following with their high-energy live show and “stick to the roof of your mouth” hooks. Now they’re tired all the time and bicker frequently as they win over crowds around the Pacific Northwest. Influenced by everything from hardcore punk to hip-hop to indie-pop, they play an upbeat brand of sad tunes perfect for dancing and shouting along.

Seth has joined Joey Cape’s (Lagwagon, Me First and the Gimme Gimme’s) One Week Records roster based in San Francisco to reveal his fourth full length effort which was released in June, 2016.

Previously independently releasing three full length albums, he has upwards of ten years of road experience, including multiple cross country tours, and performances in the UK. The last year has brought opportunities to tour with with Joey Cape (Lagwagon), Off With Their Heads, Jon Snodgrass (Drag The River), Kj Jansen (Chixdiggit), and Yotam Ben- Horin (Useless ID/ Fat Wrech Chords), which have taken him across Canada, the United States, and Europe connecting with many new audiences and establishing a solid fanbase.

Last winter Seth completed a new album titled “We Could Be”, awaiting release, where he worked with established Canadian songwriter/author/musician Eamon McGrath. The track listing features many full band songs, along with a handful of simply produced recordings of he and his acoustic guitar, holding onto the essence of his awe-striking live performances. An honest, emotional statement; of loss, hope, and the need for a world that embraces love.

Seth will be touring North America and Europe in 2018, supporting his new release, as well as multiple dates simply because he loves it.

Sincere Engineer

Deanna Belos has been a fixture in the Chicago punk scene since she was in Junior High, attending shows, singing along, and raising hell in general. But she was more than just a face in the crowd, Deanna was a radiant friend to all, and at some point she picked up a guitar and made a different contribution the Chicago underground scene: her own music under the name Sincere Engineer. Over the last couple years we’ve encouraged her to keep writing songs and she surprised us all by assembling a great band and recording an impressive album. Her debut, « Rhombithian », was produced by Matt Jordan (You Blew It!, Dowsing, etc.) and pairs the sounds of Chicago punk and the youthful Midwest « emo revival » movement. No one is more excited about music than Sincere Engineer, and Deanna plans to play a lot of shows and bring her infectious energy to the rest of the planet in support of « Rhombithian ».

Smoke or Fire

In 2008, after the releases of Above The City and This Sinking Ship, both on Fat Wreck Chords, Smoke Or Fire found themselves at a bit of a crossroads. A follow-up to the aforementioned Ship was due to be written and recorded and tours of Japan, Australia, New Zealand, as well as five weeks in Europe, were booked. At the time however, none of the four members lived in the same city. In fact, the band had become bi-coastal, with two members living on the West coast and two on the East. Coordinating time to write together, practice, and tour was becoming increasingly difficult. Balancing jobs and busy home lives with the desire to be a full-time band was proving harder than it had ever been before. But being a band that believed in themselves and the rewards that come from hard work they pushed onward. Writing and demoing of new material was produced and a decision was made to record the new album after the tours of Asia, Australia, and Europe were complete. The next several months the band spent traveling the world gave them some of the most rewarding experiences of their lives. Seeing so many enthusiastic faces so far from home was proof positive that their music had reached far beyond the borders of the U.S. Upon returning to the States the band decided to give themselves a well-deserved break and allow themselves time to digest and reflect upon all the amazing things they had felt and seen in such a small amount of time.

But after some time had passed, and perspective gained, singer/guitarist Joe McMahon and guitarist Jeremy Cochran decided it was time to get back at it. After all, there was a whole new batch of songs to be recorded and sung and so many new people to try to reach. Spurred on by a desire to return the stage and to the road, in particular the rapidly approaching SXSW music festival in Austin, Texas, Smoke Or Fire recorded and released the Prehistoric Knife Fight 7″ in March of 2010, also on Fat Wreck. In the summer of 2010 The Speakeasy, the long due follow up to This Sinking Ship, was recorded in Chicago by Matt Allison, the same man behind the boards for Ship. “We wanted to make the best sounding record we could and still retain some of the grit from our older recordings and our live show. And I think we accomplished that. We feel extremely comfortable and focused in Chicago with Matt and I think the relationship we have with him and that city makes us fell that, no matter what, we’ll be leaving with something we know we worked really hard on and that we can be proud of.” says Cochran. The Speakeasy boasts the bands strongest and most collective songs to date with the albums first two tracks “Integrity” and “Monsters Among Us” leading the way. With Justin “Gwomper” Burdick (bass, AVAIL) and Ryan Parrish (drums, Darkest Hour) filling out the line up on The SpeakeasySmoke Or Fire has returned with a new sense of confidence, urgency, and direction. Though it’s been a while since we’ve heard new music from Smoke Or Fire, it’s been worth the wait. The Speakeasy shows us that in the life of a band the journey can be just as important as the destination.

Spanish Love Songs

Spanish Love Songs is a five piece punk band based in Los Angeles, CA. They formed in 2014 after the demise of a previous band and a chance Craiglist post about lonely people looking to go to punk shows. Their sound combines the energy of drunken bar shows with the immediacy of intimate, lived-in lyrics.

Self released in 2015 (and later reissued on Wiretap Records), their first album, “Giant Sings the Blues,” chronicles singer Dylan Slocum’s mid-twenties through songs about apathy, anxiety, and a slowly disintegrating marriage, all told over fast drums and rousing power chords.

In March 2018 they released their second album “schmaltz”, which finds the band expanding their sound both musically and lyrically. More anthemic than ever, the band tears through eleven songs in which Slocum tries to find a positive way to handle the loss of those closest to him while inching towards self-acceptance in a world that doesn’t always feel like home.

Since then, the band has hit the road nonstop, with no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

It’s new ground for the band of so-called grouch punks. It’s also Spanish Love Songs at their absolute best, so they’ll try to enjoy it.

The Penske File

For many years, « The Penske House » in Burlington, ON was known as the place to go for the after-show party. A place where several dodgy music videos have been filmed and where countless bands have slept….A place where eating a scorpion and chugging through a chandelier happened at least once. It also just so happens to be the place that Travis (Vox, Guit, Harmonica), James (Bass, Vox) and Alex (Drums, Vox) of the Penske File call home. More importantly, it’s where these three young men became brothers and banded together to make some seriously awesome music.

Following hot on the heels of two critically acclaimed EPs and several massive stretches of international touring, Burn Into The Earth attacks the listener with a sonic authenticity and passion that perfectly captures the ferocious spirit of the band. These 10 epic tracks were produced with the help of long time friend and prolific recording engineer Steve Rizun (Flatliners, Motorleague, Junior Battles). Meanwhile, with a touch of harmonica, and the warm, welcoming pop sensibilities, The Penske File feel like an all-inclusive band for misfits, romantics, workers and intellects alike. On tour, everywhere, forever.
