Wine Lips
-from Toronto, ON
-It’s been one hell of a wild ride for Wine Lips.

Originally formed in Toronto back in 2015 as a part-time project between Cam Hilborn (vox, songwriter, guitar) and drummer extraordinaire Aurora Evans, Wine Lips quickly escalated into a full-blown, full-time, full-on
international phenomenon. Their debut album took them across North America followed immediately by an intensive and unexpected tour of Hong Kong and China in 2018. They released their massive “Stressor” album
the very next year (2019) to rave reviews and massive critical acclaim. Multiple tracks from Stressor charted across North America and Europe radio, while several songs ended up being featured in broadcast and Netflix
series. Endless touring ensued.

Then 2020 happened. The band used their mandatory downtime to fully dedicate themselves to crafting their groundbreaking third full-length “Mushroom Death Sex Bummer Party” (recorded by Simon Larochette at Sugar
Shack). The record was released in October 2021 and then shit really hit the fan. The international music press lost their collective minds, penning over 250 glowing features and super positive reviews spanning 35+ countries.
At the time of writing, the album is rapidly approaching 20 Million spins on Spotify alone. The vinyl release of MDSBP is currently in its 7th pressing with 9 different colour variants. The lead track “Eyes” has been licensed to a
metric ton of films, series and video games including ABC’s The Rookie, Hockey Night In Canada and VR Skater. Even more endless touring ensued, except this time the venues were huge and mostly sold-out.

Which brings us to the new record… “Super Mega Ultra” is an absolute beast. Recorded by Simon Larochette at The Sugar Shack in Ontario, the album is jam-packed with 12 ramped-up supersonic ear-scorching auditor delicacies.
SMU is probably Wine Lips’ most ambitious undertaking to date, exploring new thematic territory while firmly maintaining their signature psych garage punk rock panache. You truly need to hear the album to believe it… And if
you haven’t already guessed, more endless touring is booked for 2024. The wild ride continues!

The Macks
-from Portland, OR
-“Walloping heaviosity threaded with streams of blues and thrash… doesn’t begin to describe The Macks’ sound. This is music that takes you places.” (WIllamette Week)

The Macks are brothers Josef and Ben Windheim, Sam Fulwiler, Jacob Michael Perris, and Aidan Harrison. In 2022, the band
came out with their lockdown project “Rabbit.” Their raw and progressive take on rock and roll launched the band towards
festivals and tours from Idaho to Mexico City.

After Willamette Week dubbed The Macks “the masters of controlled mayhem” and Portland’s Best New Band of 2022, the band
could have taken a breather. Instead The Macks finished the year with another full-length album release.

Self-produced in their Portland home, “Dajiban” builds on the creative successes of “Rabbit.” The album took listeners deep
into expansive, catchy, gnarly, and unmistakably “Macks” territory. “Dajiban” is “Elemental rock ‘n’ roll” that “flourishes in
a liminal space between raw creation and perfection.” (Eugene Weekly)

Now in 2024 The Macks are cutting deep. The band will release The Macks Are A Knife in a dogged pursuit of being the
sharpest band from the PNW to date. Tobias Wisner for Oregon Music News reveals, “The album teeters on the edge of
a rhythmic and melodic cliff, does a couple backflips at the precipice, and lands safely on two feet, ready for applause.
It’s brimming with confidence without pretense, and if their first single they dropped yesterday, “Nice,” is any indication,
I think those hungry for some Rock that pushes boundaries in just the right way will be satisfied.”

The band’s 2017 “Camp Poppa” and 2019 “Yup” LPs documented their lively shows and garage rock energy. 2022’s “Rabbit”
was born in pandemic isolation and made solely for themselves. The result was adventurous and eclectic.

Now The Macks are embracing opportunities to play live again in bigger spaces. With shows at Crystal Ballroom in Portland
and the MonkeyBee Festival III in Mexico City the band is focused on meeting the moment.

The Macks began in 2015 with Sam (vocals), Ben (guitar), Josef (drums). Jacob (keys) joined the band in 2020 to create
and record Rabbit. In 2021 Aidan (bass) began touring and recording with The Macks.

The Snares
-from Sacramento, CA
-The Snares are an American psych-rock outfit based in Sacramento, California. The band currently consists of Izzie Gomez, Lukas Brodie, Casey Smith
and Julian Paz. The Snares have a variety of influences that can be heard in their sound, including garage/psychedelic rock, pop, noise rock, and post-punk.

On September 2, 2022, the band independently released its first single "Dumb Luck" consisting of 2 tracks and on January 20, 2023, a second single “Kids
With Drugs.”All tracks were recorded by audio engineer Jack Shirley at Atomic Gardens Studios in Oakland, California. The Snares debut album "Walls That
Sweat" released in March 2023 and they have much more on the way.
