SOUL ASYLUM (http://www.soulasylum.com/)
Born and bred in Minneapolis, MN Soul Asylum formed in 1981 and since their inception the band has delivered heartfelt and passionate rock n’ roll. They started out on independent label Twin/Tone Records, before scoring major hits on Columbia Records with 1992’s Grave Dancers Union that included the Grammy winning single "Runaway Train", followed up by 1995's Let Your Dim Light Shine.
Soul Asylum consists of Dave Pirner (guitar/vocals), Michael Bland (drums),Winston Roye (bass) and Justin Sharbono (guitar). Their last full length album Delayed Reaction, produced by the band and John Fields is melodic, anthemic, well-versed in the art of classic song-craft and was well received by both fans and critics. They are currently in the process of recording an album of all new material to be released in 2014.
EVE 6 (http://www.eve6.com/)
Southern California’s Pop-punk trio, Eve 6, are most well-known for hit singles “Inside Out” and “Think Twice” from their 1998 debut self-titled album, and their prom-MTV anthem, "Here’s To The Night" off of 2000's Horoscope. Eve 6 exploded onto the mainstream with RCA records before they were of legal drinking age, but called it quits in 2004 shortly after their success.
Eve 6 reunited in 2012, and released Speak in Code through Fearless Records. The band’s lineup remains the same; Max Collins (vocals & bass), Jon Siebels (Guitar), and Tony Fagenson (drums). After their eight year hiatus, Eve 6 returned to the music scene more energized than ever before. Frontman, Max Collins, states that Speak in Code is the strongest collection of songs they've had on one record.
Formed in 1994 during the peak of grunge-rock, Spacehog came out with a more unique sound than what was popular in rock music. Their debut albumResident Alien was heavily influenced by artists such as T.Rex, Iggy Pop, Queen, and David Bowie and The Spiders. On top of their “glam-rock” sound, they added some distorted guitars to create their own individual sound. The result: over a million copies sold, the number one single “In the Meantime” and a completely unique identity.
