  • The Early November

    Alternative Rock

    The principals of the Early November were youthful enough to have grown up with the Drive-Thru Records sound, a formula that incorporates sensitive emo, pop, and punk revivalist amalgams with a bit of post-hardcore grit. The boys in the band first came out of the box in 2000, fighting to secure shows in their busy south Jersey scene, and hoping to land a deal with Drive-Thru. One way or another, their wish came true. Label figureheads Richard and Stefanie Reines signed vocalist/guitarist "Ace" (Arthur) Enders, bassist Sergio Anello, drummer Jeff Kummer, and guitarist Joseph Marro in early 2002 on the strengths of their demo and a solid /MP3.com buzz, and by November 2002 the band had made their label debut with the For All of This EP. Promising appearances on the Warped Tour's Drive-Thru stage that summer spread the word, and by 2003, anticipation for an Early November full-length was brimming. Room's Too Cold dropped in October 2003. It was a particularly lush take on the Drive-Thru sound, with strings and ballads and a focus on the rich vocal presence of Enders. The band toured extensively behind the record; Enders later issued the first effort from his solo project I Can Make a Mess Like Nobody's Business in late 2004 and briefly toured behind the disc. Enders then turned back to TEN, and writing began that summer for their follow-up sophomore release. Recording commenced in February 2005 with a fifth member on board, guitarist Bill Lugg. The band also released a summer split EP with I Am the Avalanche, Vinnie Caruana's post-Movielife project. The resulting The Mother, the Mechanic, and the Path was eventually issued in July 2006 as an ambitious triple album. (The band took a cut in royalties to make sure it was offered at a single-disc price.) Boasting a rock-oriented disc ("The Mechanic"), a more mellow, stripped-down disc ("The Mother"), and a third character-based soundtrack with dialogue to intermingle among the first two ("The Path"), the album was conceptually based around a troubled father-son relationship and the subsequent imperfect relationship between the then-adult son and his own child. Various rounds of touring followed. In March 2007, the Early November announced its plans to go on an indefinite hiatus after the completion of scheduled dates that year to spend more time with family. ~ Johnny Loftus, All Music Guide

    Cartel

    Pop Punk

    Cartel's earnest take on emo/pop-punk emerged out of Atlanta around 2004, when vocalist Will Pugh, guitarists Joseph Peppers and Nic Hudson, bassist Ryan Roberts, and drummer Kevin Sanders released an initial EP that caught the ear of the California-based Militia Group label. Militia signed Cartel, and the Ransom EP reappeared under Militia in 2004. The label then released Chroma, Cartel's full-length debut, in September 2005. The album cracked into the Billboard Top 200, as bloggers praised the band and the video for "Honestly" found moderate airtime on MTV. The majors noticed all of this activity, and in early 2006, Cartel inked a deal with Epic. Touring continued through the rest of the year, opening for acts like New Found Glory and the Starting Line. That same year, Roberts decided to leave the band. He was replaced by Jeff Lett, who joined on just in time for their 2006 Warped Tour dates. ~ Johnny Loftus, All Music Guide
