Enter Shikari
Enter Shikari
Enter Shikari are an English four-piece rock band formed in 2003 in St Albans, Hertfordshire. They are known for their crossover style incorporating post-hardcore and various heavy metal sub-genres, such as metalcore and alternative metal, with elements of various electronic genres, such as industrial, dubstep, trance, and occasionally drum and bass, creating a very distinct sound. The band is named after a boat belonging to Roughton "Rou" Reynolds' uncle, and a character in a play which he wrote before forming the band, both of which are named Shikari. Their debut album, Take to the Skies, was released on 19 March 2007 and reached No. 4 in the Official UK Album Chart. Their second album, titled Common Dreads, was released on 15 June 2009 and debuted on the UK Albums Chart at 16. Their third studio album, A Flash Flood of Colour, was released on 16 January 2012 and was positioned at the top of the UK Album Chart for almost its entire week of release, however it eventually debuted on the chart at 4. The band then spent considerable time supporting the release through the A Flash Flood of Colour World Tour, before beginning work on their fourth studio album, The Mindsweep, released on January 2015 and debuted on the UK Albums Chart at 6.

Band members:
Roughton "Rou" Reynolds - vocals, guitar, electronics

Can't Swim
Can't Swim
Based out of Keansburg New Jersey, Can't Swim was founded by singer Chris LoPorto in the spring of 2015. After spending most of his life playing drums in various bands, Chris decided to step in to song writing. The songs were contagious from the start and grabbed the attention of his good friends Mike Sanchez, Danny Rico, and Greg McDevitt.

Before even playing their first show, the band announced their signing to Pure Noise Records in December of 2015 and released their debut EP, "Death Deserves A Name" on February 24, 2016. They spent all of 2016 touring with bands such as; Four Year Strong, Hit the Lights, Aaron West & The Roaring Twenties, Moose Blood, Boston Manor, Set Your Goals, and Valencia.

When it came time to begin recording their first full length, "Fail You Again" they called upon their own drummer Danny Rico (who produced DDAN) to engineer and produce this as well. Once the project was complete, they found that the songs required a much more full sounding live performance and their longtime friend and New Jersey native Andrea Morgan was a perfect addition to the band. Danny moved to third guitar/vocals and Andrea took his place on the drums.

Fail You Again was released on March 10th, 2017.
