Description: A Gathering of None-

A Gathering of None are a quintet based all over the north, southeast and southwest of the United States. The band has existed since 2013 and have released 3 albums, the latest being "One Last Grasp At Hope". AGON take influence from a variety of styles such as melodic punk, 90s grunge and alternative, posthardcore, stoner rock and progressive metal. Initially the band was one person, TB (formerly of horror punk underground icons Blitzkid) but now the band exists as five people all with the same goal in mind, to bring something nostalgic yet entirely modern and multifaceted to the heavy rock genre. If you like heavy guitars, groove laden inhumanly proficient drums, prog rock bass lines, hooks a plenty and more vocal harmonies than you can count per song, then you have just found your new favorite band.

A Gathering of None is-

TB-vocals, lead and rythm guitars
Justin Travis Osburn-rythm and lead guitars/bgvs
Jeff Grunn-lead and rythm guitars/bgvs
Ken Belcher-bass/bgvs
Chris White-drums/backup vocals

Argyle Goolsby
Having toured 29 countries, played over 700 shows and appeared on over 200+ songs and 16 albums over the past 2 decades, the co founder of the punk rock legends Blitzkid returned in 2015 to conjure up the curtain on a host of new music.

In a burnt black cauldron feverishly boiling the fetid bones of punk, deathrock and metal sensibilities, the music balances between the melancholic and driving/the somber and the vigorous. Equal parts broken nose and broken heart, the songs and the energy they bring to stage consistently reflect the passion and commitment of the potentially damned soul stirring them.

Goolsby most recently completed and released his latest album "Darken Your Doorstep" in the summer of 2017. Following its' release, touring with his live electric band, THE ROVING MIDNIGHT as well as his full acoustic ensemble THE HOLLOW BODIES continues across the US and Europe.

The Casket Creatures
Atlantas drunkest horror rock band!
Blending elements of the traditional horror punk sound along with the heavier European bands, The Casket Creatures have carved out a sound that defines them but also stays true to the genre. With songs ranging from catchy & campy, the paranormal, your favorite horror films to down right satanic; The Casket Creatures know what demons to invoke and when to do it. In a live setting The Casket Creatures are unmatched. They want you to enjoy a SHOW, not just some dudes playing music. With their blood flowing, beer soaked live set that includes props, theatrics, candy and more, you cant help but feed off their energy and get involved. With 3 albums and an EP under their belt, The Casket Creatures are about to do what any horror franchise doesGO TO SPACE! New album will be released May 2018.

That sounds awesome! I hope you guys don't suck!

Damnation brings a contemporary take on classic punk rock roots. By blending memorable angst-filled hooks, lyrics with tongue-in-cheek gore and their appreciation of horror culture, theyve created a sound that encompasses the entire spectrum of heavy music. Front man and guitarist Isaac Aldrich and drummer Benny Austin have been playing together since 1995  in and out of various groups and genres from metal to rockabilly. More recently, Benny started getting tattooed by local artist and bassist Brad Touchette and the two realized their similar interests. Thats when they got Isaac involved and the idea for Damnation was born. Their goal is to break the hold on the punk scene, bring excitement back and change the perceptions of todays punk rock. With their non-cookie cutter approach, Damnation is excited to make an impact by creating music that is sure to shock and entertain. It is this kind of passion for the band that allowed for serious promoting as they started booking shows in the Worcester and Boston area last Spring. Each show draws a strong crowd response and high energy and Damnation is hungry for more.

A fast pace rock n roll band that will smash you in the face and leave you wanting more!!! HUH!! We will shut this shit down!!!

It's difficult to put an exact timestamp on when Potsy actually came into being. If you asked them, they would probably say that the concept of the group has existed since mid-2006, when guitarist Bradley J and drummer Brad Rondeau began putting riffs and rhythms together in the former's small New England basement. Bassist Jeremy Borne's arrival in 2007 solidified the group as a strong instrumental act. Flash forward past the trial and error of various working lineups to the 2011 addition of vocalist William Edwards, and you'll arrive at the Potsy that many are now familiar with; the group that wasted no time dipping its toe in the waters of the Boston-area music scene with 2011's self-recorded demo Dyingprettydemos, and 2012's independently released EP Dyingprettythings. The EP was well-received with fans and critics alike, garnering the group airtime on various local radio including WUML 91.5FM, the (now-defunct) Boston Local Music Show on UnRegular Radio, and a spot on Radio 92.9's Upcoming Local Artist page.

Since releasing Dyingprettythings through local retailers Newbury Comics and Bull Moose Records, Potsy has hardly idled. The band has performed relentlessly around New England in support of the EP and publicly debuted much new material along the way. In 2014 and '15, the group found themselves on bills with national acts like Soulfly and Powerman 5000, broadening their reach steadily. In Summer 2015, Potsy entered New Hampshire's famed Rocking Horse Studio to begin recording their debut full-length album titled Adverse, which saw release in June 2016. The LP yielded a promotional CD-single titled Slippery Slope in the interim, and Potsy is preparing for a busy schedule of both consistent performances, and regular rehearsals with no shortage of material in sight.
