Fossil Youth
After battling the unattainable with the 2015 EP "Intertwined With You", Fossil Youth are back and at it again with their new full length "A Glimpse Of Self Joy". AGOSJ not only works well as individual songs but, also tells one cohesive story that takes you on a journey from the opening chords of the contagious sing along "Watercolor Daydream" to the final ring out of the epic closer "Linger In My Head", where singer/guitarist Scottie Noonan laments over and over again, “You don’t need me at all”.

Noonan attacks the initial roadblocks, relapses, fond recollections, reminiscing and ultimately, the final resolution of a toxic relationship. Throughout the album, there is consistency in storytelling, that when listened to in sequential order, will bring a sense of apathy to the listener. Personal yet still universal, AGOSJ brings urgency in its’ songwriting. Noonan persists, “Although you know you shouldn't, you're replaying the best memories you have in the back of your head.”

For the recording of the album, Fossil Youth tapped producer Jay Maas (Citizen, The Menzingers, Somos) and headed to Boston, MA. You can hear hints of the laidback groove of Turnover melding with the quiet/loud dynamics of Balance & Composure. Songs like "Minco" & "Sitting In A Spinning Room" showcase the bands penchant for slowing things down and compelling the listener to firmly grasp every melody, while songs like "Forest Eyes" and "Late Night Swim" hit you right in the face and force you to bop your head with the beat.

A Glimpse Of Self Joy will be released November 4th on 12”/CD/CS/Digital via Take This To Heart Records. Catch Fossil Youth on tour this fall all across the USA.
Class Zero
Class Zero
Started in November of 2014 in a storage unit in Tulsa Oklahoma, Joshua Meador (guitar/vocals), Justin Hoffman, and Vince Baker (drums) came together to write music. After writing quite a few songs in just a few weeks, they brought in Darrell Dotson (guitar/vocals) to help fill out the sound. The magic made between these four fine young gentlemen would surprise even them with how quickly it came to be. After landing their first show in February, through sheer word of mouth they began cultivating fans and captivating audiences with their high energy shows that focused on everyone having the best time possible as fast as possible. Their mix of punk musical elements with heartfelt lyrics would drive them to become one of the Top Five Punk Bands in Tulsa. They have played with the likes of local legends Society Society, Merlin Mason, SkyTown, and national artists like Mike Dillon. Since placing in the Top Four out of around thirty bands in the East Meets West Battle of the Bands in Depew, OK, Class Zero has had the privilege of playing shows almost every other weekend all around Tulsa and as far away as Ft. Worth, TX, Since then have departed from original bassist and added newcomer Tyler Burke of Roots Of Thought, who is now a permanent member. They released their second EP titled High Energy Love Stories Pt. ll on Valentines Day 2016 and are now writing their first full length album.
