The Hunger
The Hunger
The Hunger is an industrial rock band from Houston, Texas formed by brothers Jeff and Thomas Wilson along with Brian Albritton. During the initial year of putting the band together and working on new material the band wrote and independently released the single, "Shock" in 1991 which rose to the top of the dance charts. Industrial dance music ruled the charts in Europe along with strong ties to Chicago, Wax Trax Records, and Houston. Subsequent releases of "Cut the Skin" and "Shoot to Kill" gained national exposure on the dance charts and club scene. "Never Again" was self-released as a radio single and quickly rose to the top of Houston Radio Station's 93Q and 96.5 attracting the attention of independent record label Alpha International. Stephen Bogle produced the single of "Never Again" and signed on to become the groups guitarist and producer. The band wrote and produced the album "Leave Me Alone" but due to the bankruptcy of Alpha International the record sat idle. The following years we're spent in litigation with Alpha International as the band sought to be released from its contract and secure their publishing. Along with the three founders and newest member Stephen Bogle the band sought out drummer Max Schuldberg to complete the line up. The band recorded and produced "Grip" under their own start up label, Gut Records. "Grip" went on to sale 30,000 units with the help of a crafty rework of Bad Company's "Feel like Makin Love". Universal Records, at the time a brand new start up label, heard of the success of "Grip" and signed the band as their 2nd ever artist and began work on "Devil Thumbs a Ride". The Hunger had a hit song in 1996, "Vanishing Cream", from the Devil Thumbs a Ride CD, which received heavy airplay on rock stations and reach No. 4 on the Mainstream Rock charts. Two years of constant touring with the band finally stopping to record their second release with Universal Records, "Cinematic Superthug". After only moderate success with the single, "Moderation", the band was released from Universal Records.[citation needed] Two songs, "Shoot to Kill", also from Devil Thumbs a Ride, and "If", from Grip, reached No. 42 on Billboard's Dance/Club Play chart.[1] The band has released five albums: two on Universal Records and three on independent labels. Former drummer (1991-2003) Max Schuldberg (voted 2002's Best Drummer by the Houston Press Music Awards) parted with the band after 5 albums in 2003 and moved to Los Angeles. Former guitarist and two time Grammy Award nominee [2](remixer, for his work with D.J. Cubanito)[3] Stephen Bogle now Produces artists in the Metal, Electronic, and Pop genres. In 2013, guitarist Raf Rivera joined the lineup, and the band is currently in the process of recording their first new material in over 8 years.
To Whom It May
To Whom It May
To Whom It May (TWIM) is a progressive hard rock trio from Galveston, Texas. Pulling from multiple influences, TWIM
bridges the gap between complexity and groove while creating a fresh, new sound. Upon completion of their self titled
debut “TWIM EP”, the band hit the ground running and found themselves touring coast to coast.


They've had the pleasure of touring with the likes of Nothing More, Red Sun Rising, Wilson, Sleepwave, Islander, Twelve
Foot Ninja, and Dinosaur Pileup. Sirius XM Octane caught wind and have been spinning their last two singles..."Bypass"
& "Signal Fire".

TWIM are currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on their first full length effort titled “The
Great Filter” with producer Dean Dichoso (Candiria, Family Force 5).
Valeluna
Valeluna
Valeluna is rock band from Houston, Texas. Cousins, Justin Allison and Ty McMahon founded the project with the release of "In Your Presence EP" in September 2013. Shortly after garnering a small fanbase, Aaron Skipper and Ricky Ward were recruited as drummer and bass player, respectively. This addition catalyzed an evolution in the band's style. The results were self-evident after bursting into the Houston music scene in early 2014 by winning two consecutive Houston Battlle of the Bands events and performing for KTBZ 94.5's Texas Buzz.
Ranging from smooth, ambient soundscapes to powerfully orchestrated anthems, Valeluna will envelope you in an atmosphere of emotional rock music.
The quartet's debut album, "In Your Absence" is now available for digital streaming/download.

History
Shaving Susie formed in December 2008. Starting with two founding members: Terry Arehart and Cody Howes. While seeking out members to complete the band, Chris Cook, Rick Nugent and Derek Savoie finalized the band’s roster. Each member of the band brought their own unique style to the band. Some of Shaving Susie’s influences are Johnny Cash, Black Sabbath, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Megadeath, Metallica, System of The Down, Pantera, Slipknot, and many more. Rather than focusing on one particular style, the band decided to merge each member’s style creating a southern swampy metal sound.
We are a solid group of seasoned musicians that have been around each other for years, but all in different bands. Once we all came together after many years, we often wonder why we didn’t do this years ago. We all work great together and everyone is dedicated to the work. We have been together as Shaving Susie for 6yrs now, and are still going strong.
Within the first couple of years we focused on writing, playing shows every weekend and recording tracks for our first CD we titled “RAZOR BURN”. And we are currently in the studio recording our second album now at Sugarhill Studios.
We have had several great shows over the years at such venues like: House of Blues, Scout Bar, Hard Rock Café, Engine Room, BFE, The Rail Club and Warehouse Live, to name a few. And have also played several music festivals such as SXSW. We have opened for many national acts such as Jackyl, Metal Church, HED PE, Saliva, Saving Able and Texas Hippie Coalition to name a few. Our music reflects a modern sound with a vintage feel.
