Flowerbomb is a DC-based alternative rock band founded by Rachel Kline in 2015. Combining saturated guitars, ornate rhythms, intricate songwriting, and delicately raw lyrics, Flowerbomb creates a soundscape for nostalgia and heavy feelings accompanied with lush layers and dynamic sounds. Their debut album, Pretty Dark, is available now on Mutineer Records.
Comprised of Matt Orlando, Tom Lipski, and Bilodeau brothers John and Pat, The Warhawks are a dynamic, blue-collared indie rock outfit from Gloucester City, NJ.
Following a string of DIY releases, the band released their debut LP Never Felt So Good in January 2019, recorded and mastered by Dave Downham (Beach Slang, Into It. Over It.). Combining soaring punk rock anthems of love, life and hope with a refreshing alt-rock twist, Never Felt So Good would earn them accolades as 93.3 WMMR’s “Band of the Month” that following March, as well as steady rotation of their song “Miracle” on top indie station 88.5 WXPN and live appearances on WRFF Radio 104.5. They would return to Gradwell later that year to record their follow-up EP entitled Stardust Disco. Released in February 2020, the record would go on to chart on the NACC Top 200 the first week of release.
Through their relentless efforts, the band has toured themselves throughout the northeast and midwest while cultivating a large, passionate fan base at home. They have also earned prominent opening slots for White Reaper, July Talk, The Menzingers, and Off With Their Heads among others.
Hailing from the outskirts of Washington D.C, is a Psychedelic Hard Rock band called Bluewreck. With two albums under their belt and a third one on the way, Bluewreck shows no signs of slowing down in 2021. Bluewreck spent most of the last four years jamming, recording, refining their sound, and playing as many shows as they could. This included touring up and down the east coast, with shows in New York, Philly, Boston, Richmond, New Jersey, and North Carolina. Bluewreck also opened up for national and international touring acts, such as King Buffalo, Jessy Wilson, Paris_Monster, People's Blues Of Richmond, and Okilly Dokilly. Blueweck is gearing up to hit the road again in 2021-2022 in support of their new record and hopes to reach as many people as possible.
Bluewreck has spent the last year crafting and putting the final touches on their new record, House On Fire, which is due to be released in the summer. It was produced, recorded, and mixed by Ben Green over at Ivakota studios in Washington D.C. It combines elements of rock, psychedelic, doom, blues, and indie music just to name a few. Amongst all this writing, recording, the band also recently had a lineup change, but is coming out on the other side better, louder, and tighter than ever.
Bluewreck aims to provide a sonic intensity with a ferocious bite during their live shows, which are usually full of headbanging, lots of hair flying around, and enough intensity to make your ears ring.
