The Maine
The Maine
The Maine is an American rock band from Tempe, Arizona that formed on January, 2006. Their first release, the EP Stay Up, Get Down was released in late 2007, followed by a five song EP titled The Way We Talk released on December 11, 2007. The band's first full-length album, Can't Stop, Won't Stop was released July 8, 2008. Their holiday release ...And a Happy New Year was released in December 2008. The Maine released their second full-length album, Black & White, on July 13, 2010, selling 22,634 copies in its first week. On December 6, 2011, the group's third album, Pioneer, was released and it peaked at No. 90 on the Billboard 200.[1] Their newest full-length record Forever Halloween was released on June 4, 2013 reaching No. 39 on the Billboard 200 by selling over 10,000 copies in its first week. The Maine later released a deluxe edition of Forever Halloween on June 17, 2014. The band has announced they will be working on their fifth studio album in November, 2014.
The Wrecks
The Wrecks
Los Angeles-based indie rock band The Wrecks root from Thousand Oaks, CA. The group consists of Nick Anderson (vocals/guitar), Nick Schmidt (guitar), Westen Weiss (guitar), Aaron Kelley (bass), and Billy Nally (drums). Heavily influenced by groups such as The Pixies, The Strokes, Weezer, and Vampire Weekend, this 5-piece isn't afraid to blend undeniably catchy choruses, with lyrics and vocals that have an underlying substance and a certain quirk that give them their young, signature sound.

The band actually recorded their upcoming debut EP on a whim, alongside friend and engineer Andrew D’Angelo, when they were surprised with the news that a friend had been granted access to a studio for just a few days. With a total budget of $0, and only a week as a band under their belts, the group set out to record the best songs that they could in 3 days. After working ridiculous hours through the night, and to the next day whenever they could get in the studio, the 3 days were over and the EP was cut. Little did the band know, they were not even allowed to be in the studio that week. So through feelings of guilt and worry, they cleaned every bit of information of theirs from the studio computer, every crumb of Dominoes from the studio couch, and they were off with their entire EP on an hard drive in a backpack.

On March 18th, 2016 The Wrecks released their first single Favorite Liar. “Catchy and reeking of mischief, “Favorite Liar” is their first single. It’s nostalgic, it’s punchy, it hits all the right builds.” - Infectious Magazine
The Technicolors
The Technicolors
The Technicolors are a musically sophisticated young rock band hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, who blend grand gestures of rock-n-roll with the swagger of brit rock and the songwriting prowess of greats such as Roy Orbison, Noel Gallagher and George Harrison. Their ambitious debut album Listener Deluxe is set for release on November 13, 2012 on Bay Area indie label, Tallest Man Records.

The album was produced by 22-year-old lead singer, Brennan Smiley. Smiley grew up playing on records his father produced and had plans to move to Nashville to join the elite as a session musician, but fate had a different plan. Listener was recorded over a span of ten days in January at a new studio in Phoenix called Studio at the Farm. Fresh off the road, The Technicolors had found a new energy and were anxious to make their debut album with a solidifIed lineup of Mike "Nico" Nicolette (bass), Mikey Fanizza (guitar) an Kevin Prociw (drums) and Brennan (guitars and vocals). A Rock n Roll band from the desert.

The Technicolors spent 2011 hitting it hard, tirelessly touring the nation and finding their sound as a band. With driving electric guitar riffs and a flair for the dramatic, the band started gaining a reputation of being loud...in a good way.

"We would show up to these tiny bars with a lot of gear and get really loud. We love big songs," says Smiley.

Soon they were selling out small clubs in their hometown of Phoenix and packing out shows at the Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles and their showcase at SXSW was over capacity as a group of fans was forced to watch from outside the venue.

Citing influences like Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Bruce Springsteen, Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy, and the Travelling Wilburys, The Technicolors focused on creating a dynamic album of expansive songs that can be musically complex and artistic and still reach a vast amount of people. Listener weaves ambient electric guitar beds with searing solos punctuated with Smiley's ernest vocals reminiscent of Oasis and Wolfmother.

The result is a mature collection of effervescent rock songs that echo late night summer drives as a young vagabond who doesn't focus on the destination rather choosing to enjoy the journey at hand.

"Touring needs to be a lifestyle if you're going to keep up in this business", says Smiley. "And during the time that we're not touring, we'll be making records. It's just the minimum of what's expected this day and age, and we wouldn't have it any other way."
