Bands playing the Journeys Stage

Air dubai

Denver band Air Dubai is more than the sum of its parts. It's not about the exciting combination of eclectic genres or even the explosive onstage energy. The group's appeal lies in its member's passion for the music they create, as well as their love for the people who come to see them perform. A heady mix of hip-hop, pop, soul, rock and electronic, Air Dubai exists not to fit into one specific category or sound, but instead to create something new and fresh on each album and even every song.

The band's roots date back to 2008, when high school friends singer Jon Shockness and rapper Julian Thomas decided to create a hip-hop duo using the name Air Dubai. Originally utilizing pre-recorded beats, the pair collaborated for a year until they both felt the need to create music more organically. By spring of 2009, Air Dubai had its first rehearsal as a live band with instruments. By rounding out the lineup with Nick Spreigl (drums), Lawrence Grivich (guitar), Michael Ray (keyboard/synth), and Taylor Tait (bass), Air Dubai was able to transform itself into a shape-shifting powerhouse of talent, seamlessly blending genres and styles.

To date, the seven-piece has two official releases: 2010's "Wonder Age" (produced by Andrew Guerrero of Flobots) and 2011's "Day Escape" (produced by Sylvia Massy, whose credits include Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tool and Prince). The albums showcase impressive musical dexterity and songwriting ability, but the true magic lies in Air Dubai's live shows; energetic, soulful performances fueled mainly by the faithful fans that come to see them play.

In December of 2012 the band announced their signing to Hopeless Records and released a song bundle through iTunes, which included their songs "Warning" & "All Day".

"Signing with Hopeless was like finding the final horcrux; now we have all the proper materials to destroy it..." - drummer Nick Spreigl

Air Dubai has received numerous critical and commercial accolades: voted Westword magazine's "Best Hip Hop Band" of 2010, 2011 & 2012, winner of Channel 93.3 KTCL's 2011 "Hometown For The Holidays" competition, multiple songs featured on MTV's hit series Jersey Shore and in Hollister stores nationwide. The band has also shared the stage with a wide array of local and national artists, including OneRepublic, 3Oh!3 and Rise Against.

In 2013, Air Dubai plans to release a new album, continue touring and increase their fan base worldwide.

Bayside

Anthony Raneri – Vocals, Guitar
Jack O’Shea – Lead Guitar
Nick Ghanbarian – Bass
Chris Guglielmo – Drums

Bayside fans don’t call their relationship with the band a "Cult" for nothing. After a string of much-adored releases, Bayside has one of the most dedicated fan bases in rock, and the group steadfastly rewards those devotees with the musical salvation they seek. Six albums and more than a decade later, Bayside has never lost touch with that mission and, in fact, they’ve only grown bigger. While veteran bands take breaks and regroup, Bayside haven’t taken that route and instead, soldiered on, building up and growing more and more into themselves… to the point in which they are the most "Bayside" that they have ever been. The fact that their audience has grown is testament to that.

Now continuing that legacy is the band’s latest creation, an explosive 11-track collection that captures Bayside in prime form, combining classic elements from throughout their career. Guaranteed to rock the faithful, the new release is appropriately entitled Cult.

"When we were done with the record we were like, 'This is every Bayside record,'" explains singer/guitarist Anthony Raneri. "It has the honesty and rawness that we’ve had since Sirens And Condolences, and those risks: those weird key and time signature changes, and the different styles of music we explore. The Bayside 'Cult' is something our fans have been talking about for a long time, and it seemed like a good name for a greatest hits album, which is kind of what this is: a Bayside discography. On the cover, there are even little symbols to signify each album."

That’s a lot of history for an album cover. The band—which also includes lead guitarist Jack O’Shea, bassist Nick Ghanbarian and drummer Chris Guglielmo—formed in the winter of 2000 in Queens, NY, undergoing numerous lineup changes in the early years. At first through Raneri's sheer persistence and dedication Bayside progressed, eventually cutting two embryonic EPs with Dying Wish Records. Those efforts bore fruit, leading to a contract with Victory Records in 2003, resulting in the band’s 2004 full-length debut, Sirens & Condolences. But it was just the beginning, and the group released three more quintessential LPs with Victory, cementing their place as one of the most important bands in the modern underground music scene—Self-Titled (2005), The Walking Wounded (2007) and Shudder (2008)—then briefly moved on to Wind-Up Records in 2010 for Killing Time (2011), their most widely visible album to date. After that record cycle Bayside opened another exciting new chapter in their career, signing with punk powerhouse Hopeless Records in 2013. Cult marks the band’s first Hopeless release.

For latest effort Cult, Bayside spent roughly two years writing new material, then returned to producer Shep Goodman (who’d previously helmed two of Bayside’s most beloved releases, Self-Titled and Walking Wounded), as well as Goodman's production partner, Aaron Accetta. Raneri says Goodman was a catalyst for the band's obvious progression from debut Sirens to sophomore album Self-Titled, and this latest collaboration sought to rekindle that spark.

"Shep was very instrumental in teaching me about songwriting. He taught me a lot about drawing a listener in and getting inside the mind of the listener, and not just sitting down with a guitar and playing whatever comes to mind," says Raneri. "He’s sort of my mentor as far as songwriting goes. I loved working with Gil Norton on the last record [Killing Time]—he's a legend, and it was an amazing process—but with this record, I really wanted to get back and hone in, try to get better at my songwriting again. I knew that working with Shep has always done that for me."

Sonically, Cult is perhaps the band’s most confident and resonant work to date, featuring turbocharged rhythms and the consistently blistering guitar work of six-string whiz O'Shea. But as much as the album is a return to the band’s musical sweet spot, on the other hand Cult's lyrical content breaks new thematic ground, showcasing Raneri's ongoing personal growth as both the man and the songwriter. Instead of dwelling on past romantic failings, this time the lyricist points his pen at the hard matters of life and death, having recently lost his grandfather, stepfather and stepbrother.

"[Cult] is pretty different because it’s not about broken relationships as much as other records; on a personal level, my relationship has been great, my marriage is good and I've started a family. Instead a lot of this record deals with mortality, without it being morbid," says Raneri. "I lost a lot of people who were close to me, and it really just started making me think a lot about what my legacy was going to be. What am I going to leave behind and what is my entire generation going to leave behind? What are they going to be saying at funerals 40 years from now? It’s wondering if life is about leaving a legacy. Is that what we’re all here for: living a life worth remembering?"

Raneri channels these universal existential questions into personal inspiration on tracks like first single "Time Has Come," which finds the singer challenging himself to rise to the occasion over intricately interwoven guitar lines. "It’s meant to be more of an uplifting thing," says Raneri. "If I want to make something of myself, build a legacy, accomplish something, then I’ve got to just go do it. The time is now to do something if you ever plan on it."

Other tracks like "Stuttering" and "Bear With Me" put the music business under the microscope, as well as Bayside's place within it. "["Bear"] has a lot to do with my career and my legacy as a musician. You look at bands like mine, and it's hard to ignore that a lot of pop-punk or mid-2000s emo bands just sort of disappeared," says Raneri, who’s instead had the good fortune of seeing Bayside's popularity continually grow. "Fortunately for us our band has been able to make it through a lot of that. There are definitely days when I feel like I'm a novelty, but like the line in the song, I think I'm twice the man I used to be."

Even when Raneri does return to issues of the heart, he does so with a newfound perspective. A prime example is the song "Transitive Property," which Raneri wrote during Warped Tour 2012 for his girlfriend—now his wife—as a heartfelt apology, as the couple was on the verge of a breakup. Although never intended for public ears, when bandmates heard the song they insisted it be included on the new album.

"That’s the most personal song I've ever written. It's like sharing a letter to the world; sharing my actual diary that I didn't think anybody would see," Raneri says. "I always write a song with the intention of sharing it, but that lyrically was the first song I wrote that was so personal because I thought nobody would ever hear it. I think it’s a great song; one of the best songs I ever wrote."

Bayside has already toured the world many times over, sharing stages with a virtual "who’s who" of like-minded artists and enjoying regular main-stage spots at major festivals like Warped Tour, but the band's plans for the coming year are no less ambitious. After Cult drops in February, Bayside will head out on a U.S. headlining tour, then travel to Europe with Alkaline Trio in the spring. From there Bayside will likely play still more high-profile North American dates during the summer of 2014.

"I'm excited about the tour, because it’s sort of a combination of underplayed and big shows," says Raneri. "We’re in certain cities playing bigger venues than we’ve ever played, and in some cities we’re playing in smaller venues."

Now six full-lengths into their career, making the setlist each night gets tougher than ever. Raneri says the band is cautious of including too much new material live, for risking of disappointing fans awaiting the classics, but once listeners have Cult in their hands it'll be easier to gauge which new tracks to perform. Inevitably though, Cult will stand up well next to past material. If there's one thing immediately clear, it’s that Cult is as classic Bayside as it comes.

"We don’t play anything we don't want, but at the same time, we listen to our fans, and we know what makes Bayside, Bayside. We try to grab all those things that we all love about Bayside and try to do more of them," says Raneri. "People's lives change. You go from high school to college to adulthood to parenthood, and everything in your life changes, except there’s always going to be a new Bayside record, and you can always go home."

beebs and her money makers

With the kazoo-wielding songstress Beebs as their fearless leader, Beebs and Her Money Makers (BaHMM) is taking audiences by surprise with their high-energy performances and unapologetically silly videos. They are a refreshing blend of psychedelic ska, sassy funk and soul, or as Kevin Lyman called them, Jiggly Pop Comic Rock.

After being featured on the second season of Fuse TV's Warped Roadies, Beebs and Her Money Makers have been working tirelessly to keep up with the hype. They recorded their recent E.P with ska-legend producer Aaron Barrett of Reel Big Fish with a Full length album due out this summer and also launched BaHMM TV LIVE, an interactive, live streamed talk show where fans can call in, chat and even win prizes.

There's no telling what the year holds for these unstoppable superheroes. BaHMM!

Echosmith

What a difference a year makes. In 12 short months, Echosmith have gone from little-known Los Angeles alt-pop gem to Warped Tour's undeniable breakout band. Basking in the glow of a summer spent playing to thousands of fans all over the country, the quartet--which consists of Sierota siblings Jamie (vocals/guitar), Sydney (vocals/keyboard), Noah (vocals/bass), and Graham (drums)--is even more excited to share their music with all the people who weren't able to see them on the annual punk-rock summer camp.

"We were super excited when we found out we'd be playing [Warped Tour]," remembers Jamie. "So many bands grow from that and come out with tons of fans." Adds Sydney, "Going into it, I was totally nervous because we were so different, style-wise and age-wise, from almost every other band and I wasn't sure if that was going to work against us, but it ended up being the exact opposite." The band was originally slated to play just the first half of the tour, but the reaction was so overwhelming, they were invited to stay until the end, which meant more people would get to hear music off the band's upcoming debut album, Talking Dreams, out Oct. 1.

The full-length was produced by Mike Elizondo (Tegan And Sara, Gary Clark Jr., Maroon 5), who also happened to sign the band to Warner Bros. along with WBR chairman and fellow producer Rob Cavallo. Though the members of Echosmith might be young, they are heavily influenced by the music they listened to growing up--which includes a lot of early-'80s New Wave--and can be heard on songs like "Come With Me" and "The Safest Place."

The band's new album might not be out until fall, but if you go to any Echosmith show, in the meantime, you'll already hear the audience singing right along. In June, Echosmith released a 3-song Summer Sampler, featuring tracks from the LP, including fan favorites like "Come Together," "Cool Kids" and the debut's title track, the video for which was directed by famed actress Clea DuVall (Argo, American Horror Story).

"I remember the first time it happened [on Warped], it seemed so weird to me," remembers Sydney. "I'd get the chills every time--even though it was 110 degrees. It's just so cool to see other people as passionate about the band as we are."

With a blend of style and substance, it's no wonder Echosmith is connecting with both critics and fans. Alternative Press named them as one of the "100 Bands You Need To Know in 2013," MTV declared them a "Buzzworthy Obsession" and Seventeen called Sydney's voice "stunning." Plus, after seeing the band's electric live show, recent converts are constantly tweeting glowing endorsements like "I listened to @echosmith for four hours straight in the car yesterday" and "I am so freaking excited for the @echosmith new album!!! #cantwait."

One song that seems to get the loudest crowd response is "Cool Kids," a dreamy Smiths-esque strut that encourages people embrace our differences because that's actually what makes each and every one of us cool. With lyrics like, "I wish that I could be like the cool kids / 'Cause all the cool kids seem to fit in," it's no wonder fans of all ages are relating to the sentiment. Echosmith's "in crowd" of outsiders is sure to grow when the band hits the road for more tourdates this fall. So what's it like for them to look out on-stage and see a sea of smiling young faces staring back? "I think it's really cool to be the same age as our fans," explains Sydney, "because when we meet each other and start talking, it's like we're friends already."

issues

Issues is an American metalcore band from Atlanta, Georgia. They formed in the summer of 2012 and were signed to Rise Records shortly after their formation. They have released one EP and have released their self-titled debut album on February 18, 2014.

Issues has often been associated with the metalcore genre with a mixture of R&B. Reviews for the debut EP Black Diamonds often called the album primarily metalcore[1] with an influence of R&B.[2][3] The band themselves has commented that wanted to mix metal and "Top 40" music in the same way that nu-metal mixed heavy metal music with hip hop music.

Lionize

The Maryland-based band formed in 2004, learning to play music by jamming and listening -- really listening -- to each other. But now, ten years later, the band has matured into a much more powerful, tight unit. Lionize still hammer out most songs in the studio and rehearsal room from the basic spark of an idea. Jetpack Soundtrack, their fifth album and first for the Weathermaker Music label, is no different.

"There's really only so many ways to work on music. You just have to play it, then work on it," says bassist Henry Upton. "We just exhaust all our ideas and put them down." The band obsessed over thirteen songs, working off four notebooks crammed with ideas, ultimately narrowing the finished album to eleven tracks. Pre-production became a never ending process of upping the musical ante. Eventually, chasing perfection stopped only when producer Machine finally told them to leave.

The veteran producer proved invaluable to the process, not only in terms of sonic quality, but also performances and even song structure. "The opposite of low key, that's what Machine is," Upton jokes. His enthusiasm -- basically, a conductor whose animated reaction to the music guided its development -- was contagious.

"He's very excited about whatever his hand is on," Nate agrees. "He's a guy with a track record of making incredible records. The sound he gets -- like Earth Rocker and Blast Tyrant -- whatever that guy touches is awesome."

real friends

One of Alternative Press' Most Anticipated Bands of 2014, Real Friends is an emo/pop punk band from Chicago, IL. With their "do it yourself" attitude, they rapidly became one of the biggest unsigned bands in the genre, gaining the respect of bands and fans all over the map, signing to Fearless Records in December 2013. Real Friends continues to grow in popularity daily with their hard work, relatable lyrics, energetic music, and dedicated fan base.

Secrets

Hailing from sunny San Diego, CA, SECRETS has already made an impact as one of the most promising up and coming acts in the scene. Armed with irresistibly catchy choruses, soaring vocals, and mercilessly dynamic breakdowns, its no wonder the post-hardcore five-piece has seen such success since signing to Velocity/Rise Records in the spring of 2011.

Velocity Records' Dave Shapiro says, "When I heard these songs, I knew San Diego had yet another band that would be at the forefront of their genre." Rise Records' founder Craig Ericson is equally pumped on the signing, explaining, "Dave showed me the band and I immediately knew these guys were keepers."

SECRETS released their debut full length The Ascent in January of 2012 to rave reviews. The record debuted at #3 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and became the first Velocity Records release to crack the Billboard Top 200, debuting at #185. SECRETS toured heavily in support of The Ascent, supporting acts such as Sleeping With Sirens, Attack Attack!, Escape The Fate, Silverstein, as well as appearing on the entire Scream It Like You Mean it tour in 2012.

After seamlessly making a change by adding new vocalist Aaron Melzer to the lineup in March 2013, SECRETS released their follow up to The Ascent, Fragile Figures, on July 23rd 2013. The album turned heads of fans and critics alike, ultimately debuting at #57 on the Billboard 200. After supporting the release with a two week stint on the Vans Warped tour in the summer of 2013, SECRETS is poised to return to the tour with a full run in the summer of 2014.
