Cold Kingdom -
Born of Minneapolis in 2014, Cold Kingdom is a full-out, juggernaut hard rock band that dispenses a lethal combination of fury and sentiment, delivering emotional lyrics wrapped in an unbreakable hard rock casing.
Cold Kingdom brings an unfailing drive to play energy-filled shows every time they walk on stage, a quality that gets ever-rarer in today’s arena. In their years of performing live they've had the experience of playing with well-known acts such as Chevelle, Buckcherry, Saving Abel, Puddle of Mudd, Saliva, and Nonpoint, as well as contributing to some of the Midwest’s largest music festivals, like Northern Invasion, RockFest and Summerfest. Their first released album, "The Moon and the Fool," brought their musical dreams roaring to life, with the singles "Crash Poet," "Let it Burn," and "Surrender" quickly becoming fan favorites. Their upcoming EP, produced by Shinedown’s Eric Bass, will further push their rock to an even greater creative edge.
More than just a band, this close-knit family is always looking forward to new challenges, new venues, and new fans, because that’s what it’s all about to Cold Kingdom: the fans. The Midwest is their home, but they’re excited to grow and make new friends all around the country, bringing their distinctive sound to all corners, both domestically and beyond. Cold Kingdom is also forever thankful to the friends, family, fans, bands and companies that so significantly contribute to their success.
Sleep Signals -
Minneapolis hard rock quintet, Sleep Signals, have garnered a dedicated following through relentless touring, their explosive live performances, and their ability to blend catchy hooks with their high-energy songwriting style.
2017 continues to be a huge year for Sleep Signals, which started with the release of their new single, "I'll Save You", on 1/27/17, along with an accompanying music video that was premiered by Vevo. The single was produced by Grammy-nominated producer, Justin Rimer (Saving Abel, 12 Stones).
The band followed up the single returning to the studio with Justin Rimer to finish up their new album, "At the End of the World", which dropped 9/7/17, and features guest appearances from Marty Mccoy of Bobaflex and Josh Brown of Full Devil Jacket. A music video for the single, "Drive", picked up 40k views in the first two days of being released.
Founded in 2014, the band hit the road in early 2015 and has since played over 175 shows in 26 states, sharing the stage with bands like Seether, In Flames, Saving Abel, Bobaflex, Ill Nino, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die, Alesana, Volumes, Capture the Crown, The Browning, Letters From the Fire, and 3 Pill Morning.
Sleep Signals released their second EP, "Transitions", in early 2016 and followed it up with US tours with heavy hitters Screaming for Silence and Lydia Can't Breathe. The band has played several festivals including Northern Invasion, SXSW, and Heart of Texas Rockfest.
Anchors for Airplanes -
Anchors For Airplanes is an American heavy rock band from Reno, Nevada, founded in 2013 by lead singer Brandon Bianco, guitarists Wade Tranberg and Cody Walker, drummer John Wooten, and bassist Travis Ambrose. The lineup released two self recorded albums “Relics” in 2015, and a follow up “Afterglow” 2016.
The band’s style is commonly referred to as melodic alternative metal, though some song structures and dynamics can compare to ballads, pop, and even hip hop alike.Though influences range far and wide, Anchors For Airplanes has served up a very tight and polished sound packed with a hard driven vibe that is relative to giants like Sevendust and In Flames.
In the summer of 2013 Brandon Bianco (Vocals) and Wade Tranberg (Guitar) contacted Travis Ambrose (Bass), John Wooten (Drums), and Cody Walker (Guitar) to form a new hard rock project, and the name Anchors For Airplanes was selected from a Facebook poll the group had posted. In the following months AFA recorded several songs, striking instant approval from fans with “After The Fall” and “Heart Of Sin”. Over the next three years AFA shared the stage with bands such as Three Days Grace, Halestorm, Starset, Ill Nino, 36 Crazyfists, All Hail The Yeti, Highly Suspect, Saving Abel, and Motograter.
Anchors For Airplanes are currently working on their third album expected sometime in 2017, as well as a reality YouTube show called the Hard Rock Diaries. Videos of the band are filmed by singer Brandon Bianco and his video production company Dreampilot Films.
AFA’s goal is to make music and provide it for as many people as they can get it to. Though the band is unsigned, they have written and complied nearly 60 songs worth of rock and metal music. AFA is currently seeking help from a record label to produce and record their next album.
