Hardcore from Chicago.
Bone Dance is a progressive hardcore band from Boise, ID.
Cave Bear is a hardcore/punk band from Chicago. We strum riffs, hit drums, and yell into microphones. Five friends who have a lot of fun performing our energetic, somehow catchy music on stage. We are fast, local, and bloody.
The growl of chain saws making firewood of fifty foot pines. That’s WILSON. The howling of a pack of wolves battling a rabid moose. That’s WILSON. The panting, gasping breaths of a smoke break “nooner”. That’s fucking WILSON. The citation for a noise violation… that’s just where the party begins. If all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, then all party and no bullshit have made WILSON juggernauts. For the past two years WILSON have transformed shows into parties, and concerts into riots throughout the Midwest. Sharing stages with the likes of Every Time I Die, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Steel Panther, Valient Thorr, Escape The Fate, Between The Buried and Me, Wilson has not only held their own, but raised the bar for how much fun live music can be.
So Many Ways originated as the brain child of guitarists Murphy Welch, Jason Milbank and then-bassist Casey Weyant writing songs in their tiny, cramped practice space. Not long after in January of 2009, after several text message conversations about great hardcore bands between Welch and friend Colin Corley, Colin joined the band on lead vocals. Upon returning to Chicago from their winter break later that month, drummer extraordinaire Bill Kohler joined the band as well. After playing a couple shows in the Chicago area, So Many Ways relocated to Westborough, Massachusetts to record their debut EP entitled "Real Talk" with producer Jay Maas (Bane, Verse, Title Fight). The result was a 4-song pop-punk EP, showcasing the bands influences ranging from bands such as New Found Glory, Four Year Strong, and the Wonder Years. The bands loves cool dogs, burgers, and "It's Always Sunny..". Boom! Facial! Suck it!
