Mariner comes from the heart of Saint Louis. They blend post rock, indie, and post hardcore into a symphony of layered chord structures and feeling.

They are touring to support the release of their upcoming EP, which is set to be released on Feb 6th, 2017.
Barren Plains is a four piece instrumental band from Chicago, Illinois. After the break up of their previous band Gunner's Daughter, Chris Behm (guitar) and Christopher Ramos (bass) decided to move in a different sonic direction. With the addition of Curtis Schreiber on drums and Christopher Kozubowski on guitar, Barren Plains creates an intricate musical landscape through a post metal filter while still clinging to a punk rock ethos.
Only The Bones (members of Snow Burial/The Swan King) is a Chicago trio melding angular punk rock with atmospheric soundscapes to create their own musical world with sounds absorbed from Fugazi/Refused/Drive like Jehu and sights painted by Kubrick/Lynch/Carpenter. The first EP will commence at the famed Electrical Audio this winter with Greg Norman (Pelican/Russian Circles) manning the boards. Look for Only The Bones to decimate stages throughout the US in 2017.
