Four Year Strong
Four Year Strong
Worcester, Massachusetts. 8 pm. Those who have their hearts set on a Sunday night bingo game or knitting circle at the Quinsigamond Village Community Center will walk away sorely disappointed. Instead, nearly 600 kids spanning all ages and tastes have excitedly packed themselves into the tiny venue. The room is plunged into darkness and the wild shouting echoes in the air; this is the moment they've been waiting for. The first strains of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" filter through the speakers as Four Year Strong take their hometown stage, fully prepared to shred faces, blow minds, and take no prisoners.

Alan Day (Vocals/Guitar), Dan O'Conner (Vocals/Guitar), Joe Weiss (Bass), Josh Lyford (Synth), and Jake Massucco (Drums) are Four Year Strong. At first, this may not raise eyebrows or drop jaws, but it is only a matter of time. Bringing a unique blend of brutal breakdowns and soaring choruses, Four Year Strong have cut their teeth into the Worcester hardcore scene and thirst for more. Their music incites a riot like nothing seen before, leaving live crowds and CD listeners alike simultaneously blown away, and fired up.

Their influences range from Lifetime to Saves the Day, Gorilla Biscuits to New Found Glory. "We just play exactly what we want to hear," describes Dan, explaining their combination of hardcore and pop-punk. Sharing an average age of 20 years old, the five guys of Four Year Strong have already self-released an EP, making themselves known on the Smartpunk Top 100 sales and Purevolume's "most played" charts. The band built their own stage sets, booked their own tours, and made music the way they want it to be made.

With this do-it-yourself determination, Four Year Strong do not pretend to be anyone but themselves. The band does not sugarcoat their image, avoiding the pretty-boy front that smothers the scene. Behind the numerous tattoos and grizzly beards, Four Year Strong are the kind of guys you would want to bring home to Mom and Dad. The band does not bother with egos or attitude, determined to connect with every fan on a personal level.

Their debut full-length, Rise or Die Trying, premieres September 18th on I Surrender Records. Already, the album has generated an excited buzz across the web, featured on social networking and music websites such as Absolutepunk.net and FriendsorEnemies.com. The band has over 450,00 plays on each Purevolume and Myspace with nothing more than a taste of what Rise or Die Trying will bring. Unrelenting spirit, gut-wrenchingly good music, and no flashy gimmicks, Four Year Strong are building themselves to the top with an indestructible foundation.

Four Year Strong combine equal parts melody and mayhem; however, their true talent lies in the ability to use these parts to create one exciting, infectious whole. "We wanted to put out a great record and not just a bunch of great songs." They fully embrace their album title, Rise or Die Trying, and Four Year Strong refuse to stop until they've taken the world by storm. Be sure to check them out on tour throughout August (along side Alesana, As Cities Burn, Just Surrender, and I Am the Avalanche) and September (with east coast pop-punk icons The Starting Line) 2007 and beyond!

Brace yourself, let's start the takeover.

Grayscale
Grayscale
Blending pure, raw emotion with elements of alternative rock and punk roots, Grayscale has spent the past four years crafting their own unique loud and catchy sound. Delving into their deepest personal thoughts and experiences, lyricists Collin Walsh and Dallas Molster call it as they see it, no matter how brutally honest. The band's bouncy rhythms and memorable hooks will stick in your head on first listen, and their relatable lyrics and stories will have you singing and screaming along in no time.

Emerging quickly from the thriving Philadelphia punk scene, Grayscale have been at it since late 2011 building a strong reputation and gaining steam among fans and music lovers. Coming off of their successful "Change EP" release in April 2015, the band is now ready to unveil its latest and most complete collection of songs to date in their Anchor Eighty Four Records full-length debut, "What We're Missing". Produced by Gary Cioffi (Transit, Misser, A Will Away) and Mastered by Brian Gardner (The Story So Far, Teagan & Sara, Kendrick Lamar); WWM is sizing up to be an incredible release with stronger hooks, more intricate instrumentation, and well-narrated stories. Grayscale is comprised of Walsh, Molster, Nick Veno, Andrew Kyne, and Derek Parker.
Life Lessons
Life Lessons
Life Lessons was started in 2013 by vocalist Kaden Birdsong, bassist Andrew Wasson, and drummer Chris Lewis. After a year of playing as a three piece, Life Lessons changed direction, and included guitarists Josh O' Dell and Alex Akins. "What The Silence Meant" was released in June 2015, and after a couple tours, weekend runs, and home-state shows, Life Lessons went back into the studio with Seth Henderson to record their latest EP "I Know What I'm Not" out July 1st, 2016.
