Bands On The Verge

We opened up the floodgates over the last few months to bands throughout the tri-state area and beyond to submit their music to us.

On the verge of? Well, something. You’ve seen some before, others are fresh faces. These acts are all doing something right, many of them just out of school, and with a little support, they could easily be your next troubadours, rockstars, metal gods and hipsters. Or not. It’s tough out there. But we believe, with a little help, this class of ‘09 will be worth watching in the coming months.
