Real Talk
Real Talk
Formed in late 2013, New England’s Real Talk wasted no time releasing their debut EP “Maps & Miles” and heavily touring the US. “Maps & Miles,” recorded with Chris Curran at Apparition Sound (Four Year Strong, A Loss For Words, Pvris) showcased the bands Drive-Thru era roots while focusing on the time period between adolescence and adulthood. The 6 track EP was written while both touring and apart at colleges across the US and Canada.

In August of 2015 after numerous tours with acts such as Sleep On It, Grayscale and The Lost Boys, the band took a backseat as members graduated school and transitioned into yet another time period in their lives. In Winter of 2016 the band began writing and demoing again as members came to realize what they were missing. Real Talk has spent 2017 rebuilding, writing, and recording EP2 with Seth Henderson (Knuckle Puck, Real Friends) and looks forward to what the future holds.
Dear Youth
Dear Youth's sound possesses clear ties to the staple bands of the late 90's and early 00's as listeners can draw influences from Taking Back Sunday to Blink-182. With a range of sad lyrical content blended with punchy riffs and melodic-radio undertones, the band has been able to bring this iconic sound to the modern age, packing its own punch and feel.

This past year, Dear Youth finished working on a follow up EP and recorded a music video for their new single "Fair Warning", with Montreal film-maker Sean Colby. The band also wrapped up their first Eastern Ontario tour with Waykopp (pop-punk) from France last fall.

In March of 2018, Dear Youth announced they have signed with Anchor Eighty Four Records. The future is bright for Dear Youth with no signs of slowing down. The band has a myopic focus of playing as many shows as possible and sharing the music they love with anyone who cares to listen.
Saving Vice
Saving Vice is an American metalcore band from New England founded by bassist Robbie Litchfield in late 2015. Litchfield soon added guitarist Zach Racicot and vocalist Chase Papariello. It wasn't until later on that the band included the final pieces of their lineup - vocalist Tyler Small and guitarist Cody Grant. Since their official debut in early 2017, Saving Vice has shared the stage with acts like Through the Eyes of the Dead, Unearth, Convictions, It Lies Within, Tear Out The Heart and The Devil Wears Prada. The group’s high energy live performances, catchy choruses, and hard-hitting riffs aided by the chemistry created by the dual vocalists helped them make their mark on the local New England scene.

After a successful summer run across the northeast, the band took time to work on their upcoming EP and released their stand-alone, debut single"Exhale” January 12, 2018. A few months later, the band released "Euthanasia" the first single off the "Colder Than Dark EP." The sound and energy Saving Vice has brought to the current heavy music scene is both refreshing and nostalgic. Their sound is reminiscent of early 2000s metalcore coupled with nuances of modern metalcore. Simple and poppy, yet unapologetically brutal and dark.

You can find them at the 2018 Vans Warped Tour in Mansfield, MA on July 27.
Doom Service
Called “an unkillable party machine” by Seven Days, Doom Service is an ever growing group of friends playing the kind of music they grew up listening to. Drawing most of their influences from the 1990s, they write gruff punk songs whose oddly melodic hooks might just propel you into the twilight zone.
