    X Suns

    Heavy Metal

    X Suns started as Keith Furtado, Trent McIntyre, and Adam Tricoli in Seattle sometime in 2009. They started playing live at the start of 2010 (as Ten Suns). 

    In Oct. of 2011, They recorded a 5 song EP with Justin Armstrong at Electrokitty Studios. Soon after, they changed their name to X Suns ("X" as the roman numeral for ten), after finding out about a Canadian band of the same name. After self-releasing the E.P. on CD and Digital Download in January of 2012, the band decided to add Skippy King (Formerly of the Seattle band Patrol) as their second guitarist. They continued as a four-piece until May of 2012, when Keith Furtado decided to part ways with the band. He was replaced by Richard Burkett (from the Seattle sludge-metal band Giza) in August of 2012.

    Now with a heavier sound, they began to craft new songs and re-work old ones. In March of 2013, they entered the studio to record what would become "The Greys" EP. Recorded by Christiaan Morris at Red Room Studios, and mixed by Matt Bayles (ISIS, Botch, Caspian, Minus the Bear, etc.). The Greys was self-released digitally, and on a limited run of cassette tapes on October 31st, 2013. 

    Prior to the release, Richard Burkett quit the band to focus on his band Giza. He was quickly replaced by Erick Hohnstein-Von Etten, formerly of the band Claymore (from Port Orchard, WA). 

    This new lineup started writing new material immediately, and played tons of shows around the northwest. They shared the stage with such notable bands as Pelican, Tombs, And So I Watch You From Afar, Junius, InAeona, North, Dead Meadow, Bearcubbin, Boyfrndz, TTNG, Mylets, Jucifer, and many others. They also did a short northwest tour with Dust Moth & Hooves, and performed at Volume Fest in Spokane. 

    In Dec. of 2014, they recorded a 4 song EP, titled "III", with Chris Mathews Jr. It was then mixed by Matt Balyes, and Mastered by Ed Brooks at RFI Mastering in Seattle. During this time, Erick decided to part ways with the band. He was replaced by Jared Burke Eglington, formerly of Akimbo, Patrol, Caligula, Bitches Crystal, etc.

  • You May Die In The Desert

  • A Collective Subconscious

  • Gazelles

    Gazelles

    Rock

    With a tendency towards dramatic shifts and an approach rooted in restlessness, Eugene, Oregon’s Gazelle(s) brand of instrumental rock is one without boundaries. “There’s No One New Around You” shifts from moments of elegiac ambience to menacing doom. Sorrowful violin melodies, pummeling guitar textures, and pounding bass and drums interweave, creating a sonic carpet structured in a 4/4 foundation that is suddenly pulled from beneath your feet. Their intriguing time changes create a free fall into a solitary darkened void, out of which emerges something beautiful and sanguine.

    Gazelle(s)’ debut album comes after two years of playing shows and refining their sound. Individually, the members of Gazelle(s) are no stranger to the stage, having opened for bands like Mono, Toro Y Moi, …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead and Minus the Bear. When it came time to put their hard work to tape, Gazelle(s) traveled to world-renowned studio Rancho de la Luna in Joshua Tree, CA to immerse themselves in the desert and experience how a studio with such a rich sonic history would galvanize their music. The resulting LP, “There’s No One New Around You,” takes the isolating feelings one experiences in the desert, and imbues them with a vastness and power that comes from four players ready to pour years of touring and experience into something new and distinctive.
