    Pop Evil

    Post-Grunge

    Melodic post-grunge outfit Pop Evil formed in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 2001. The band developed a sound and performance style that took cues from the likes of Kiss, Soundgarden, and Pearl Jam that aptly put them right in line with popular modern rock acts such as Crossfade, Shinedown, and Puddle of Mudd. Including former members of various area bands such as TenFive, the band released its debut independent album, War of the Roses in 2004 before signing with Universal/Republic imprint Pazzo, who reissued their sophomore LP Lipstick on the Mirror (2008) in the summer of 2009. The album featured three singles that hit Billboard's Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, including the Top Ten "100 in a 55." The band enjoyed greater success with the E1 label, beginning with War of Angels (2011) and Onyx (2013), both of which peaked around number 40 on the Billboard 200. Up (2015), their fifth album, was considered by the bandmembers to be their best release.

    Progressive Rock

    Ambassador is a progressive-rock band from the Baton Rouge, Louisiana area, formed in late 2014. The band consists of Gabe Vicknair (lead vocals), Jason Ourso (lead guitar, backing vocals), Jeremy Pourcy (bass guitar), and Ean Savoy (drums.)

     

    Formed by ex-members of Mutehound, The Have Nauts, Slaves of Freedom, Knever, and Mysterious Stranger; Ambassador's music is influenced by a wide range of styles from progressive and stoner rock to folk, post-rock and indie. 

    While influenced by the blues fundamentals found in southern music, Ambassador exposes emotional and vulnerable sounds more often found in progressive and experimental rock; engaging listeners with evocative melodies and dynamic rhythms.

    Eluding the current genre traps of modern rock, Ambassador's ever evolving sound is a musical expression of exploration and purpose.
