“Rambunctious Danish indie rockers New Politics formed in the late 2000s around the talents of vocalist David Boyd, guitarist/vocalist/keyboard player Søren Hansen, and drummer Poul Amaliel. The band’s high-energy, guitar-driven blend of punk, pop, and electronically induced dance-rock (Boyd specializes in wildly unpredictable stage posturing) eventually caught the ears (and eyes) of RCA, which signed the group in 2009.” – New Politics Bio on AllMusic.com

“Steeped in the bluesy, brooding, bottom-heavy traditions of bands like Black Sabbath, Hawkwind, and Led Zeppelin, German psych-rock trio Kadavar unapologetically spin ’70s hard rock tropes into contemporary, stoner metal gold. Known for explosive live shows, the band play hundreds of dates a year, and have done so since issuing their 2010 self-titled debut. That hard work paid off as each album sold better than its predecessor, thanks to their tireless road work. Their third album, 2017’s Rough Times, entered the album charts in Germany at 18, and landed inside the top 20 on the U.S. Heatseekers charts.” – Kadavar Biography on AllMusic.com

“Although many mistake alterna-ska punkers the Suicide Machines as being from California, where most of the genre’s bands come from, they’re in fact Detroit natives. Starting off in the early ’90s, the quartet was founded by Jason Navarro (vocals) and Dan Lukacinsky (guitar/vocals), who saw some members come and go before recording their first demo in 1993 with Derek Grant on drums and Jason Brake on bass. The Suicide Machines did their first national dates the following year and by late 1994 Royce Nunley (bass/vocals) had entered the fray. A full national tour with Buck-O-Nine came next, and the guys soon signed a deal with Hollywood Records, releasing their major-label debut, Destruction by Definition, in 1996.” – Suicide Machines Biography on AllMusic.com
