I Set My Friends On Fire
I Set My Friends on Fire is a post-hardcore band from Miami, Florida. The band was formed in 2007 by Matt Mehana and Nabil Moo. The group signed with Epitaph Records before releasing their debut album, You Can't Spell Slaughter Without Laughter, in 2008. Drummer Chris Lent joined the band in 2009
Sink In


Ask any fan of Sink In one simple question - “What does Sink In mean?” - and they will undoubtedly give you the same answer. Sink In means diving into making a difference right where you are. Since 2015 Sink In has done exactly that.

The “DIY" pop rock group began with only a van that better resembled a tin can and pure willpower. They spent a full year recklessly touring and creating memorable shows; despite having zero music released to the public. After many less-than-glamorous nights spent in parking lots and exhausting phone calls with recording studios Sink In finally released their first songs on a small EP titled “Wide Eyes”. 

The EP sold over 1,000 copies independently and the following year Sink In had their first label deal. The label released the debut album “Ordinary People, Extraordinary Things” which hit billboard’s Heat Seeker’s Northeast chart at #1 during the first week. Soon after Sink In hit the summer festival circuit and took their DIY attitude to the main stage.

“Sink In is bringing a catchy and colorful sound to the pop-rock genre that is unapologetically their own” - Into The Void

Despite a global pandemic halting the band’s 2020 tour schedule, Sink In never slowed down. Members Tighe Eshleman (Vocals), Cobrette Bardole (Guitar), and Josh Lamczyk (Guitar) went from the road directly to the studio to work on their sophomore album. "The leading single “Ghost” from the upcoming album has already reached over 500,000 online streams and gained airplay in over 104 radio stations all across the United States and Canada. The sophomore record is due late 2021 or early 2022."Welcome To Phantomland" has already amassed over 1,000,000 streams with standout tracks "Ghost" and "Killing Time".

Kerosene Heights
Asheville North Carolina emo / punks, Kerosene Heights, make loud exciting songs that carry the torch of earlier emo bands. The energy of a sweaty basement show comes through even in their recordings with distorted twinkly riffs, and yelled vocals. Their debut album, Southeast of Somewhere, is out everywhere via No Sleep Records.
