Authority Zero
Authority Zero
Mesa, AZ based punk rock royalty AUTHORITY ZERO has managed to weather the music industry storm and endure living on the road away from friends and loved ones for almost 2 decades. With four studio albums under their belt, two live acoustic albums, and two EP's, they appear to be just getting started. Over the past few years the band has broke ground internationally, beginning with shows in Japan, followed by performances at Belgium's legendary Groezrock, Spain's Resurrection Fest and UK's Rebellion Fest amongst countless other European festivals. With tours through Russia and Australia in the works, AUTHORITY ZERO continues to seek new destinations to spread their live show and music.

Initially their goal was simple; create a sound that paid tribute to their punk rock forefathers, but not confined by the musical barriers that typically bound the genre together. Now,18 years later, they have just wrapped on their fifth full-length studio album. Named after the Malcolm Gladwell book, The Tipping Point was recorded with producer Cameron Webb (Pennywise, Social Distortion, Motorhead etc.) at Maple Studios in California. Their latest effort pays tribute to their punk rock forefathers while expanding their musical boundaries into unconventional reggae and rock tinges beyond the typical punk rock aesthetics, creating a whirlwind rock album that will undoubtedly take listeners by storm.
Counterpunch
Counterpunch
Consisting of three-part harmonies and anthemic choruses, Chicago based punk band Counterpunch blends the sounds of their 90s Fat Wreck Chords style predecessors and the modern day Rise Against angst to make their mark on the music scene. The band has toured the US and abroad, and has shared the stage with such bands as Rise Against, NOFX, Strung Out, The Vandals, Death By Stereo, A Wilhelm Scream, The Flatliners, Lagwagon, The Swellers, and Authority Zero.

To date, Counterpunch has released three full-lengths, with the most recent record released August 5th, 2014 on Cyber Tracks Records (owned and operated by Aaron "El Hefe" of NOFX and his wife Jennifer). The new full-length "Bruises" was recorded at Chicago's Atlas Studios with producer Matt Allison, who has also worked with punk-scene veterans Alkaline Trio, Less Than Jake, The Menzingers, Masked Intruder, and The Lawrence Arms.
Refinery Coast
Refinery Coast
Refinery Coast is a knock-down, drag-out blend of punk, ska, and Southeast Texas flavorings. From all over Houston, Texas, the members are seasoned and skilled musicians seeking to leave their best on the stage every time they perform, and Refinery Coast is the result. The overall aim of the band was to shine a light on an otherwise oft-overlooked facet of the Texas music scene, and Refinery Coast succeeds in doing exactly that. Be it balls-to-the-wall punk à la Offspring, or that skank'd sound that recalls Less Than Jake, or something in between, it's all here. You've just gotta listen for it.
The Analog People
The Analog People
We are The Analog People and we are ready to have our music played through the airwaves. We have been a band since May of 2012 and have played many shows in the Houston area. We won first place at the Fitzgerald's Battle Of The Bands in February taking home $500 and 20 hours of studio time. Our sound is just what listeners are looking for in upcoming music. Many of our tunes vary from song to song but not so much that we can't be defined as a genre more so that our crowd doesn't ever get bored because they always want to know what's to come next. We love making music and more importantly we love making music that people enjoy. Please give us a listen and let us know your thoughts. Thanks again Keep It Analog.
