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.

Angel Siren
Angel Siren
Angel Siren was derived as a concept from two bands that eventually diffused into a shift in modern and alterative rock. Lead singer Brandon Parker has been carrying the vocals in various local South Texas bands especially band like Shut Eye and Stale Mind. After years of only handing the vocals duties the vision for writing and developing his music eventually led to a new project. Forming with drummer and childhood acquaintance Jakob Robles the rest was over. Beginning in January 2010 the 2 spent countless hours forming and writing what is today “Until We End”. The need for music distribution was critical to obtain new and supporting members. The 2 decided to venture to Jacksonville, FL to record with Chris Flowers (Limp Bizkit, Cold, and Stale Mind). What was originally planned to be released as a demo to search for new members this actually ended being released as their first EP “Until We End”.


Catching word and taking notice Pj Disharoon and Kaston Seymour (formally of Stale Mind) were asked to join one practice. Since July 2010 Angel Siren has been unstoppable. Combining a vast array of musician influences and recently touring experience the combination was uncontainable. With one short year under their belts Angel Siren has proven that hard work does pay off. The band has done numerous local and regional show including touring with the following: Powerman 5000, Cage 9, Fuel, and Red.

In March 2013 they released their first full length album "Revenge Of A Poet," produced at EMF Productions with Matt Moss. They have since been touring the album and working to expand their fan base in neighboring cities.

In June of 2014, Angel Siren parted ways with origonal drummer Jakob Robles and welcomed Perry Yazell.
