Fronted by singer/songwriter Ben Lohle, Redlands is a new band with a fresh take on good ol' American Rock & Roll that's taking the scene by storm. After their debut release of "The Lonewolf" EP with renowned producer Matt Grabe in early 2014 (The Maine/A Rocket To The Moon/The Summer Set) the band landed a spot on the Ernie Ball Stage at the Denver Van's Warped Tour. Redlands has already headed back to the studio to co-write with members of This Century in Arizona. Citing influences such as Foo Fighters, Tom Petty, and Keith Urban the five piece rock outfit from Colorado showcases an upbeat pop/rock n' roll/alternative feel. Watch out as Redlands brings its killer new take on Rock & Roll to a venue near you!
Shatterproof is a Fort Collins alternative rock band made up of Branson Hoog (Lead Vocals, Acoustic Guitar), Jeremy Marmor (Guitar, Backup Vocals), Josh Schoenig (Bass, Screams), Tj Wessel (Violin, Keys) and Benjamin Spoliansky (Drums).
In early 2012 they released their new EP "Running in Circles" recorded at Backbone Studios in Loveland CO, with producer Jason Larson.
In August 2012 they were invited to play main stage for Bohemian Nights at New West Fest, their biggest show yet.
Soon after they released their first music video for the single "Scissors Just Don't Cut It."
In January 2013, the band entered the Blasting Room with producer Andrew Berlin (Rise Against, Tickle Me Pink) to record two more singles to be released early in the year.
The first single "Expectations" was released in March with a music video to accompany it.
My Body Sings Electric
My Body Sings Electric
My Body Sings Electric's music resonates with a sense of playfulness and lust for life. When you meet them in person, it's easy to see why. Call their music indie. Call it pop. Call it what you will. But when you connect with the music from this band of
loveable misfits, you'll feel as if you just met your five new best friends. Pop-sensibility can be a taboo in the indie world, but MBSE does not leave you wanting more. With introspective lyrics,
danceable rhythms intricate instrumental work and dynamic live shows, they've crafted a fresh, energetic take on indie, pop and
alternative rock. The band's new album, "Part 1: The Night Ends" is slotted for release on January 28th, 2014, following a list of impressive dates including the 1st Bank Center in Colorado for KTCL's Not So Silent Night with Young The Giant, Group Love, and Bastille. In 2014, the band expects to add to their growing list of highlights after signing a booking deal with APA Literary and Talent Agency. They've already built and impressive list of gigs including slots on main stage at Westword Music Festival, and dates with The Flobots, 3OH!3, Bayside, Cute Is What We Aim For and The Chain Gang of 1974. In the spring of 2012, My Body Sings Electric's album Changing Color cracked the top 200 on the CMJ charts and the band inked licensing agreements with 17 national TV networks including Showtime, MTV, Bravo, Fox Sports and Discovery Networks. Later that year, the band was crowned winners of KTCL's Hometown for the Holidays contest pushing MBSE into the ranks of hugely successful previous winners like The Flobots, Churchill, and Air Dubai. In 2011, My Body Sings Electric released their first full-length album "Changing Color" to a two-night run of sold out hometown shows at The Bluebird Theater. Changing Color was recorded in the winter of 2010 at Interlace Audio with Stephan Hawkes (Dance Gavin Dance, Johnny Craig, Fear Before). The record also featured the single "Step Into The Light," recorded at the Blasting Room (Rise Against, Less Than Jake). The long list of packed shows in 2011 included a date at Red Rocks Amphitheater.
Rumours Follow
Denver, CO-based New Wave band, Rumours Follow, just released their five-track EP, Cities of Love - now available on iTunes. The first compilation since their 2013 self-titled, debut EP that consists of seven high-energy, synth-laden tracks, the band has been releasing singles on a monthly basis until now. Cities of Love fuses elements of jazz, funk, alt-rock and pop together, while adding satirical and metaphorical lyrics that show their 90’s rock and 80’s pop influences.

Previously a 6-piece band for their first release, Rumours Follow has whittled their line-up down to key members Nicklas Sanders (vocals, guitar), Adam Swanson (synthesizers, vocals), and Dennis Hernandez (synthesizers) for this new release. Having shared the stage with Panic! At the Disco, Twenty One Pilots, American Authors, Walk The Moon, MS MR, Bad Suns, Brick + Mortar, Andy Grammer, The Royal Concept, The Spill Canvas, The Griswolds, Tokio Hotel and Parade of Lights, the synth-pop band are far from newcomers on the Colorado scene. The Howler says, “Rumours Follow, one of Denver’s finest alt-rock bands with a sweet tooth for synthesizers and charming piano kicks, have been broadening in popularity rapidly since winning the main stage on Channel 93.3’s Big Gig 2014.”

The Rooster raves, “‘Cities Of Love” is a time-traveling delicacy and a complete deviation from tired local sounds. Think 80s video montage scenes with so many consensual sex scenes.” AltVibe chimes to say, “In their short existence, the three piece band has covered a lot of ground sonically” and “The comparisons that can be drawn to this band are endless, but making themselves sound similar to so many bands of several different styles is what truly makes them stand out as their own.”
Very few rock bands are capable of wowing people right out of the gate. It usually starts with a half recorded demo here, another half recorded demo there, empty bars, empty promises and then you finally get to the good stuff.

In February 2011, four young men who were tired of such a pattern gathered in an empty church to discuss their dreams, aspirations and what they were going to do about it. The idea was to create the music they've always wanted, spend all the money they had and make the best music they've ever been apart of.

The group enlisted producer Michael Rossback to help them craft the sounds that they were striving for and to help the songs come to life. "The whole thing was a big experiment. None of us had worked with a producer before and the biggest thing was, the band had yet to even play music together in a room." says Aaron Wagner, the groups frontman, "when we got to Rossback we had only laid ideas down piece by piece in a computer, never anything more. Rossback would then make us play everything as a live band when we arrived at his house and that's when things came to life. There was a chemistry and sense of trust between us all."

August rolled around and after months of working, Medic had finished their first EP. Five songs that had stolen the very breath away from all who would hear and with a developed sound that felt like they had been around for 10 years, the band started to play around the Denver area with the intent to stun the audience. They are succeeding. Bassist Drew Barnard explains: "We went in to this just wanting to make music with hope. Music that made people feel like they were understood and the shows feel like that; like we are reaching an understanding between us and the audience that hope is alive and well."

"In the midst of the trials that we go through these days, I think we are just tired of the same old. Anyone can make art these days. It's so accessible to make and promote and yet most of it is so negative. It was wearing on us. Medic is about something new, we are about creating a community of thinkers, dreamers and believers that aim for something positive. This world will continue to fall apart if we keep talking about how it's falling apart. But what if we dare to be the people to figure out ways to put things back together? That's our platform. That maybe our music can be apart of someones healing process and spread from there." says Aaron.

So maybe it is time for something new. New songs to sing, new dreams to dream. Maybe Medic is formed out of four guys who might be what we call idealists. But maybe it's time for us to leave the cynicism behind and begin to embrace hope.

Maybe it's time for a new beginning. Let us welcome, Medic.
