OUR LAST NIGHT - http://www.myspace.com/ourlastnight Inspired by hardcore and metal, Our Last Night delivers an onslaught of taut thrashing riffs and intense hardcore breakdowns that meld perfectly with lush melodic landscapes and soaring, irresistibly catchy choruses. Sharp technical precision meets raw inspiration on songs like the addictive "Escape" which is currently streaming here
Our Last Night, which consists of Trevor Wentworth (growls), Matt Wentworth (guitar, melodic vocals), Alex "Woody" Woodrow (bass), Colin Perry (guitar) and Tim Molloy (drums), was formed in 2004 by childhood friends who were fed up with merely jamming and playing cover songs. With only a few live performances under their belt, Our Last Night entered the studio shortly afterward to record their first EP, 'We've Been Holding Back'. Vigorous live performances helped the band earn respect and fans throughout the New England area and by 2005 they entered the studio to record their next EP, 'Building Cities From Scratch'. In the summer of 2007, after being impressed by their self-made demos, owner and president of Epitaph Records, Brett Gurewitz, came calling and invited the band to join the label.
"From the very first note of the demo I was blown away by the sophistication of their writing and the technical playing which belies their young age," said Gurewitz. "Add to that the control and range of Matt's stellar singing voice and I was sold."
FOREVER THEY SAID - http://www.myspace.com/forevertheysaid Burlington VT's premier metal/hardcore outfit. They represent the upcoming youth of the local scene with amazing breakdowns coupled with intense vocals and sing-a-long's with actual singing. Featuring former members of FALL OF THE MACHINES and BLACK NIGHT VENGEANCE this band is a local powerhouse.
YOUNG DENVER - http://www.myspace.com/youngdenver Young Denver, formed in May of 2008, consists of present and former members of WRECK, MANEUVERS, and BROKEN WHITE RECORD. Coming from different musical backgrounds, a quick spark of chemistry was formed in Young Denver from their start. Being comparable to Saves the Day and New Found Glory this is a rival line up and performance for them to be a part of.
JOHNNY BOOTH - http://www.myspace.com/johnnyboothmusic Oneonta/Long Island, NY based Johnny Booth absolutely slay audiences with their mix of metal and jazz hardcore, this will be one of many shows as they have decided that their home base is more welcoming here in Burlington, VT than in their home town of Long Island, NY. Future split coming out with Burlington's ghosting (http://www.myspace.com/ghostinghc) as well as a full nine day tour around the Northeast.
