Hippie Death Cult 
-from Portland, OR
-Hippie Death Cult has proven to be one of the more exciting hard rock bands to surface in recent years, They have earned a stellar reputation both for live performance and recorded material from fans and critics alike. The Portland, Oregon based quartet consists of members - Eddie Brnabic, Ben Jackson, Ryan Moore and Laura Phillips. They began writing and performing in early 2018, but the roots of HDC go much deeper. A stream of musical consciousness swept over guitarist Eddie Brnabic inspiring him to create the band. It would take a few lineup attempts and a little luck to bring the right members together. Laura Phillips was the first to help solidify the vision. A veteran of the Portland music scene she not only had the skills necessary to compliment Eddie's sound but she also brought with her drummer Ryan Moore. Ben Jackson was added to the trio and brought to the music his rich voice, textured keyboards and deep lyricism. With a solid lineup in place, they set out with fierce dedication to rehearse, record and perform a string of successful live shows securing a deal with Cursed Tongue Records, who released their debut album “111” in 2019.

Hippie Death Cult is a hard rock band. Shades of Black Sabbath, The Alice Cooper Band, Blizzard Of Ozz, Megadeth, and Soundgarden among others can be traced through their music.  At their core they are true to these roots while being driven to push new ideas. The vibe is both timeless and immediately fresh.

2020 was a productive year for HDC. They completed material for Magnetic Eye Records - "Best Of Black Sabbath Compilation", music for the independent film "All Gone Wrong", and signed a new record deal with Heavy Psych Sounds Records to release "Doom Sessions Vol 5" and their sophomore album release "Circle Of Days" in 2021. There is an intense desire to deliver this new body of work to the people so keep a close
watch on Hippie Death Cults touring schedule.

-from San Francisco, CA

-OLDER SUN is a San Francisco twin guitar heavy rock juggernaut led by the feral yet harmonic vocals of Kelsey Guntharp. High flying riffs handed down from the progenitors of heavy metal such as Scorpions, Judas Priest, and AC/DC are tempered by moody and melodic singing in the spirit of Stevie Nicks, Ann Wilson, and Janis Joplin.

The band has shared the stage with many international touring acts including Lucifer, Kadavar, Earthless, Ruby The Hatchet, Grim Reaper, and more. A two song cassette released in early 2020 showcased a harmonized string section worshiping at the altar of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal with vocals unleashing a ferocious sorcery of wild feminal invocations.

Releases include a 5 song self-titled 12" on Anchorite Recordings, a 7” called Bad Man and 7” split with Swedish rockers Spiders both released by Valley King Records, a track on the compilation Sweet Times Volume 4, by Who Can You Trust? Records out of Germany. Older Sun has also provided soundtracks for several skateboarding video segments by Thrasher Magazine and for ESPN’s Real Street competition.

An 8 song full length album is currently in production that will prove to be the band's career-defining statement. Older Sun has has created their best work to date and looks forward to unleashing it upon the world. 

"Older Sun has been called "a band out of time, that may be ‘retro rock’ now, but if it was 1975, these guys would be ruling the arenas, and playing and partying with the best of them.” – Aquarius Records
