AVOID
Heavy Rock outfit out of Seattle, WA. This group of 5 work to create a new and exciting sound to fans of rock, metal, and anything in between. Under their old name "Avoid the Void" they accomplished things such as an appearance on Knotfest 2015, The All Stars Tour 2015, and 3 regional tours.
Under AVOID they don't plan on slowing down anytime soon. With signing to 307 Artist Management, the release of their new single "End of an Era", and a tours throughout the year, this will definitely not be the last you hear of them.
Killing The Messenger
Killing The Messenger
SAN DIEGO, CA - MARCH 09, 2016 - Southern California metal-core staples Killing The Messenger today released their first single in over a year “Fuel To The Fire” on all major digital platforms, accompanied by a music video release that was premiered worldwide via EMP Label Group. This debut single serves as the first glimpse of their upcoming full-length album of the same name, the follow up to their wide successful self-released “What Matter Most”, which had brought the band to the forefront of the San Diego metal scene, earning their spot as a top draw since it’s release in 2014.

The band enters their second album cycle with confidence, looking to break out into the scene on a national level. "We wanted to find a balance between continuity and progression. We never wanted to change our sound but achieving that and also creating something new isn't an easy task! We feel we hit the nail on the head with this album”, says band frontman and founder Ahren Gray. Their confidence is validated by an ever-growing team backing them up, lead by 25-year A&R/management veteran Thom Hazaert. Through the work of this newly assembled team, and the raw talent and passion of the band, Killing The Messenger has demanded the attention of both fans and strategic partners, having recently announced endorsement relationships with Schecter Guitars and Sinister Picks. All of this has laid the groundwork for an incredibly ambitious album cycle. As guitarist Jon Arbar says, "We couldn't have dreamt of what this album has become. So many hours have gone into writing, rewriting and collaborating on these songs and I'm truly proud of what we've produced. The heavy, the soft, the deep and complex, we tried to encapsulate it all to give the listener a truly memorable product."

ACEDIA
ACEDIA
Acedia was formed in 2015 with one vision in mind; to challenge heavy metal acts with “groove”, melody and songwriting instead of beats per minute and the status quo. This vision is shared by 5 members who have aspirations to be the best of themselves, and to push each other to write great music.

Guitarists Luke Moore, Parker Moore and bassist Trent Parsons (Formerly of “From Slaves to Kings”) reunited with lifelong friend Jake Earls on drums to create the backbone of what they hope to become an unstoppable force. Since then, vocalist Kyle Dickey has entrenched himself and his creativity in the roots of this group.
