Story of the Year, World War Me, Bury Me In Lights, Open Your Eyes

  • Story of the Year

    Story of the Year

    Pop Punk

    It’s been 6 years since our last record. We’ve been on a self-imposed hiatus for much of that time, and to say it’s been confusing and difficult for all of us is an understatement.

    But with darkness often comes great art, and to be certain, the sun always rises. We’re stepping out of the shadows with more passion and energy than perhaps any time in the last decade. We are re-vitalized and absolutely intent on delivering the best record of our lives. It’s time to rock!

  • World War Me

    World War Me

    Rock

    Chicago, Illinois have graced us with endless reserves of power-hitters from the pop-punk scene over the years, but recently left us overdue. Brace yourselves as Chicago natives, World War Me enter to take the world by storm with infectious melodies, catchy choruses and heavy-hitting riffs. Members Stephen Krypel (Vocals), Charlie Harris (Lead Guitar), Jonathan Watson (Rhythm Guitar), Sean Daly (Bass), and Joe Kus (Drums) mesh the nostalgia of the old with the revolutionary new wave of rebellion on their latest single "War Zone". Prep yourselves for a New Found Glory and My Chemical Romance meets Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! baby.

    World War Me are currently in the studio working on their Debut Full-Length, produced by Get Scared's Nick Mathews, following the release of their newest single. Recently signed by fast emerging SharpTone Records, World War Me is here and ready for a fight!

  • Bury Me In Lights

    Bury Me In Lights

    Pop Punk

    Bury Me In Lights is a study in introspective contradiction. The name alone is a testimony to living a life worth celebrating, according to frontman Robert Biskoski, while the band’s guitar-driven punk anthems serve as a vehicle for Robert Smith-inspired lyrics and Metallica-fueled guitar solos. That contradiction has been fueling Biskoski’s output ever since 2009, when he and then-bassist Randy Gorecki first started making their presence known in the Chicago scene.

     

    After releasing Eyes Like Anchors in 2012 and The Will in 2014, Gorecki moved to lead guitar, and the band added brothers Tim and Chris Vallaro on drums and bass and began finalizing what would become the group’s defining sound. The shout-along infectiousness of the Menzingers, the unorthodox riffing of Billy Talent, and the manic energy and melodic sensibility of early Offspring all rear their heads on the group’s Moments Between EP, released in November of 2017 to critical acclaim, but the group is unmistakably cut from Chicago cloth. Self-professed influences like Alkaline Trio and Smoking Popes may not be as obvious upon first listen, but there’s an undeniable similarity, a strange sort of energetic melancholy that filters from the speakers like clear Midwestern air.

     

    Having already played virtually every notable Chicago venue, from opening shows at Bottom Lounge to headlining House Of Blues, and having multiple tracks featured on James VanOsdol’s Demo 312 radio show on Chicago’s 101WKQX, Bury Me In Lights could be considered stalwarts of the Chicago music scene at this point. As such, Moments Between is not a pleasant surprise or an unexpected success—it’s an assertion, years in the making, that packing into a room with friends and strangers and noise and sweat, shouting together with fists in the air, is an indispensable element of a life worth celebrating.

  • Open Your Eyes

    Open Your Eyes

    Alternative

    Open Your Eyes is a 4 piece rock band from Chicago. The band aims to change lives and spread awareness.
