State Line Empire
-from San Francisco, CA
-State Line Empire is an established independent hard rock band with a penchant for writing infectious hooks and controversial narratives. Inspired by daily events and situations around them, State Line Empire unabashedly challenges social norms and the status quo through hard hitting music. Comprising of Tony Malson (lead vocals), Thomas Cruce (guitar), Jay Michaelis (drums) as well as Scott Proctor (bass), this powerhouse quartet brings on the heat with their explosive and memorable live performances. Being avid storytellers, the band is greatly influenced by the struggles and triumphs of real life, drawing inspiration for their music from personal experiences and hardships, allowing them to evoke strong emotions in listeners. ​

Playing music for a little over decade now, the band has seen multiple evolutions of styles and members over the years. Finding the perfect chemistry with this new line up, the multi- talented quartet has managed to amass a sizable and loyal following throughout the years as they continue to grow and build. Having released a plethora of various well-received tracks and videos, the band has also won various placements and awards such as “Best Band in the city of Pacifica CA”, History Chanel’s ‘Biker Build Off’, ESPN ‘NCAA Hockey’, and Guitar Center's YOUR NEXT RECORD contest to feature Slash on their single ‘Drive Me’. Slash is quoted saying “A song that’s very representative of the band. It’s got a great hook, it’s catchy, and it just rocks!”. Bassist Scott Proctor was also recently invited to sing backing vocals for Five Finger Death Punch on their current ‘Afterlife’ tour.

With immediate plans to release three new EPs that combine to a massive double vinyl LP titled ‘The Day the Earth Died’, State Line Empire hopes to engage current audiences and reach out to new ones with their exciting yet profound creations. Armed with ambition, tenacity, and an insatiable passion for what they do, State Line Empire seeks to reach out to like-minded individuals through music to make meaningful and lasting connections. They are well on their way to becoming one of the more prominent and memorable new artists to keep on the lookout for.

Kehoe International
-from San Francisco, CA
-Bryan Kehoe (M.I.R.V., Les Claypool’s Duo de Twang) leader and founder of the band, calls his music “Garage Twang”. Conjuring sounds from Circus Side Shows, Beer Gardens, Square Dances, and Hot Rod Shows. Fusing elements from the Roots of Rock ‘n Roll with the “in your face” attitudes of Punk and Metal. Creating a unique guitar driven sound, maybe best described as “Nitro Charged, Fuel Injected, Americana.”

Skyline Red
-from Sacramento, CA
-SKYLINE RED is a hard rock/alternative metal band and consists of guitarist/vocalist Billy Strange, bassist Rob Marshall, and drummer Austin Kennedy. The 3 musicians first came together as a trio in late 2017 after a short stint in a prior band together. They spent the next 2 years jamming, writing, and recording demos before finally taking their new project public.

In 2019/2020 under the new name Skyline Red they began to play local shows opening up for bands such as Trapt, Skinlab, and Deconstruct. Skyline Red also began recording an E.P. at Pus Cavern Recording with Joe Johnston (Cake, Deftones, Dance Gavin Dance). The E.P was semi-shelved because of the Covid 19 Pandemic.

While waiting things out Skyline Red began working on new material and in 2021 they finished their E.P. which they mixed alongside Joe Johnston, and was mastered by Eric Broyhill at Broyhill Masters who has worked with bands such as Crosses and for studios like Warner Bros, Sony, and Victory to name a few.
