Dr. Acula

    The Story of Dr. Acula begins back in 2005 when Bill Graffeo, lead guitarist and only remaining original member, corralled a few of his friends and started making music. The late Mitch Hedberg, a prominent cult comedian, is credited with the inspiration for the moniker “Dr. Acula” after making the joke “Man. I went to the doctor the other day. All this guy did was suck blood out of my neck. Never go to see Dr. Acula” Surely you don’t want to follow his advice, at least when it comes to the band.

    The 7-piece known as Dr. Acula consists of vocalists Casey Carrano and Tyler Guida, guitarists Bill Graffeo and Ricky Ostolaza, bassist Kevin Graffeo, drummer Jesse Ciapa, and keyboardist Joey Simpson. With many different musical backgrounds in grindcore, hardcore, metal and hip-hop, Dr. Acula’s party metal-core style is both unique and diverse, reaching a virtually untapped market.

    Dr. Acula received the attention of Victory Records CEO Tony Brummel early in 2010. Brummel called the band to request a meeting at his Chicago headquarters…the following hour. Being in Iowa at the time was not going to stop the band, and they drove the 200 mile difference through a thunderstorm to seal their position as part of the Victory Records family. 

    The band’s first official release on Victory Records, titled Slander, is out February 15th 2011 and the band couldn’t be more thrilled about it. “This release is our best effort yet. We’re hoping this record brings us to the next level and opens many new doors. We put our hearts and souls into it,” says drummer Jesse Ciappa. 

    While it may be hard to believe that Dr. Acula have only been around for half a decade given all that they have accomplished-including sharing the stage with such bands as A Day To Remember, Attack! Attack!, Devil Wears Prada, and Emmure- they have no doubt carved out an undeniable niche for themselves in the hardcore scene. What started out as an excuse to simply have fun with their friends has become a nation wide party for both Dr. Acula and their growing legion of fans.

Life on Repeat

     

    GALACTIC ROOM (Red Rose Ballroom @ Brunswick)

    Free to Badge Holders and Friday/Weekend Wristbands | $12 without Badge or Wristband

    Salisbury, MD may not be known for its music scene, but Life On Repeat are well on their way to putting it on the map. “When we were first starting out, the closest venues were about two hours away. We rented out halls and churches to hold our own shows," drummer David Walker describes. "Over the years we've managed to establish our own local scene through the shows we've set up."

    After playing numerous shows in their hometown, the quintet set out on self-booked tours for nearly two years straight. Life On Repeat’s commitment to the road has allowed them to tour the country and back, sharing the stage with everyone from Chiodos and Bane to Versa Emerge and The Ataris, and performing at festivals such as SXSW, South by So What, and Cornerstone Festival. 

    Upon signing with Equal Vision Records in early 2009, the band met with producer Brian McTernan (Thrice, Circa Survive, Senses Fail) in Baltimore, MD to record the four song EP, As I Grew, that was released in December 2009. Offering their new music to fans via Bandcamp’s “pay what you want” model, the EP reached over 8,000 new fans within a year. Nearly a year to the date after releasing As I Grew, the band returned to the recording studio, this time with Taylor Larson [Sky Eats Airplane, Of Legends] at the Bethesda, MD-based Oceanic Recording Studios. “Taylor really understands our sound and the direction we wanted to take on the album. His endless ideas and creative production really pushed us to the next level,” explains guitarist Andrew Baylis.

    The result is the band’s first full-length album: Struggle + Sleep. Of the new release, vocalist Patrick Purves explains, “So many people go through the motions of life without getting all they can out of it and without living life to the fullest. I was once told, ‘Life is nothing but struggle and sleep.’ I can’t help but find it to be very depressing, but very true at the same time. People should never live their life that way, filled with negativity and anger within them. I would much rather put my efforts into staying positive and accomplishing goals, even in the face of adversity.”

    Struggle + Sleep is not only more honest than previous recordings, but far more aggressive and musically focused, allowing for the emotional intensity of their lyrics to shine through. Purves flawlessly blends smooth R&B vocals and melodic hooks with the aggression and passion of pop-punk, intricately woven over the heavy riffing guitars of Baylis and Zach King, powerful, driving bass leads of Devon Voisine and the relentless energy of Walker behind the drum kit.

    With their powerful new album, Life On Repeat hopes fans can identify with the theme of the new album: the beautiful downfall that comes as a result of persevering through the hardest of times. “I do a lot of my writing when I'm depressed,” Purves concludes. “I find relief from those 
    personal struggles through my writing and I hope the listener can find a similar relief in these new songs.

Ice Nine Kills

     

    GALACTIC ROOM (Red Rose Ballroom @ Brunswick)

    Free to Badge Holders and Friday/Weekend Wristbands | $12 without Badge or Wristband

    Ice Nine Kills, The band, named after the ultimate weapon of mass destruction from the Vonnegut novel, Cats Cradle -will, like its namesake, awe you. On their newly released album, Safe Is Just A Shadow, the group seamlessly weaves soaring melodies with the raw emotion and aggression of post hardcore and metal, creating in the process a refreshing sound that both soothes and knocks-over the listener. The band utilizes multi textured guitar hooks, a dual vocal attack, and a pummeling rhythm section which takes the listener by the throat, and refuses to let go. 

    INK's relentless touring schedule, combined with intelligent guerilla marketing tactics, helped their last EP, The Burning, pass the 30,000 CD's sold mark . This was no easy task, especially without national distribution. When the band was not pouring their hearts into intense live performances, one of which resulted in a broken heel, they would be at malls, skate parks, other shows and festivals, spreading their manically infectious music with ipods and headphones. "The past 2 years we really tried to make every second count with this band," said Spencer. "In a day and age when alot of bands might chill backstage instead of meeting their fans, kids found it really refreshing that we were out there on the streets and in the parking lots, pushing something that we really believe in." 

    Their Hard work is definitely starting to pay off, and this is becoming apparent at their live shows, "It's always an amazing feeling to show up in a place you have never played before like Dallas TX, or Orlando FL, and have kids scream your lyrics back to you. We were absolutely blown away by the reaction we had on the kids at Warped Tour the past two summers. I know we definitely turned a lot of heads. We are even starting to see kids with our lyrics and album art tattooed on their bodies, it's absolutely mind boggling. It makes the ten hour night drives, sleeping on floors, and other hardships of being in a touring band all worthwhile," Spencer said in a recent interview. 

    With Revolver Magazine's stamp of approval (a band you need to know- December 2010 issue), a fanatical online following (consistently landing them in the top 10 on both the Myspace and PureVolume charts), and 2 years of highly acclaimed performances on the Vans Warped Tour under their belt, Ice Nine Kills is looking to do some serious damage in 2011.

A World Once Silent

     

    Free to VIP Badge Holders | $5 for Regular Badge Holders and for Saturday/Weekend Wristbands | $13 advance/$15 DOS without Badge or Wristband

    A World Once Silent burst onto the music scene in the summer of 2010. With a line up that consisted of the most dedicated musicians, most members still in high school, they began writing music that would quickly become fan favorites in the local area. Inspired by their favorite hardcore bands, AWOS began writing quality hardcore music consisting of melodic guitar riffs and brutal headbanging breakdowns, while keeping danceable parts to sustain mosh pit excitement. Opportunities rapidly became available for AWOS to play with some national acts such as, The Human Abstract, God Forbid, Texas in July, This or The Apocalypse, Ace Augustine, Greeley Estates, The Faceless, Suffocation, Winds of Plague and Chelsea Grin. The band has shown they can hold their own on stage and keep the crowd engaged. A World Once Silent recorded their EP, In The Company of Wolves, produced by Alex Koppenheffer of Highland Audio, and released it 05/30/11 which has been well received to date. The band is currently writing new material in preparation for a full length album. AWOS continues to perform at every opportunity, gaining fans and expanding their fan base. The future is extremely bright for this group of talented young musicians.

    "They say you only live once, so I'll push the limit 'til it's over the edge," screams AUBURN frontman Brian Colantonio in the song ‘Freeman's Legacy’. 

    With Parallels, the Boston area natives’ debut full length, AUBURN lives up to those words by pushing the limit over the course of twelve blisteringly heavy, melodically laced, in-your-face tracks. The album, produced by Chris Curran (FOUR YEAR STRONG, THEREFORE I AM, VANNA) and mastered by Alan Douches (EVERYTIME I DIE, UNDER0ATH, NORMA JEAN), is a dynamic blend of riff-heavy hardcore and melodic songwriting sensibilities.

    “When we began brainstorming ideas for this record, we wanted a way to explain the changes we’ve gone through in every aspect of our lives,” explains Colantonio on the album’s title. “When I look back at the person I was as recently as two years ago I realize that I looked at life much differently then.”

    Since the band’s debut EP, 2009’s Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth (Blue Duck Records), AUBURN has spent the ensuing two years touring coast to coast, sharing the stage with the likes of THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, EVERY TIME I DIE, FOUR YEAR STRONG, MAYLENE AND THE SONS OF DISASTER and more. Along the way, the band has honed and refined their approach – the songs are heavier, the lyrics are deeper and the live show has even more energy and intensity.

    ”I wanted Parallels to represent the person I am now compared to the person I was in the past just as much as I want it to compare the sound we had then to the sound we have now,” Colantonio explains. The lyrics are written in that vein – to identify similarities and compare ‘parallels’”.

Texas In July

     Formed in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Texas in July came together in 2007 while the bandmembers were still in high school together. Consisting of singer Alex Good, drummer Adam Gray, guitarists Christian Royer and Logan Maurer, and bassist Ben Witkowski, the group debuted its intricate, breakdown-heavy metalcore sound in 2008 with the EP Salt of the Earth, released on CI Records. The quintet followed up quickly the next year with its first full-length, I Am, which Texas in July supported by heading out on the road with bands like the Devil Wears Prada and August Burns Red. The summer of 2010 saw Texas in July going through some changes, first announcing that they were signing on with Equal Vision, and shortly afterwards announcing the departure of Maurer, who split with the band amicably after deciding to head to college after finishing high school rather than spending time touring. The band recruited guitarist Chris Davis and went back into the studio to work on its debut for Equal Vision, One Reality, which was released in 2011.
