Miss May I
The sound and fury of MISS MAY I is deeply embedded in the hearts and minds of a legion of fans. These are people from different backgrounds, of different ages, with diverse life experience, who all come together and connect with MISS MAY I’s combination of brutal proficiency and impassioned delivery. The five-piece powerhouse, from the fertile metalcore grounds of America’s heartland, have become an integral part of the worldwide heavy music community, transcending boundaries and limitations, galvanizing crowds, and energizing each person they encounter.
Miss May I celebrates a decade of savage metalcore and soaring melodic refrains, newly revitalized, and poised for an insurgent career renaissance; armed with unmistakable power, road hardened experience, a steadily building catalog, and unrelenting spirit, supported by a diehard community.
Specializing in a thick, bruising strain of metalcore, Philadelphia combo Varials rode a pair of tightly crafted D.I.Y. EPs to a deal with Fearless Records in the mid-2010s. Their 2017 debut, Pain Again, put up big numbers on the streaming platforms and helped pave the way for their 2019 follow-up, In Darkness.
Singer Jared Pilieri, guitarists James Hohenwarter and Shane Lyons, bassist Mike Foley, and drummer Sean Rauchut formed Varials in 2012, having all been players in the Philadelphia hardcore and metal scenes over the previous years. Following a 2013 single, “Trapped,” they self-released their debut EP, Recollection, after which Pilieri was ousted from the group and replaced by the similarly ragged-voiced Travis Tabron, who made his debut on 2015’s Failure//Control EP. A fan base began to assemble around Varials’ cathartic live shows and recordings.
After 2016’s Absolution, a split EP with Delaware band Vicious Embrace, they landed a contract with Fearless Records, which issued the full-length Pain Again in 2017. A critical success that also notched significant online streams, their debut went a long way in establishing Varials on a wider scale. Not long after its release, guitarist Lyons departed and was replaced by Mitchell Rogers. Tours with bands like Wage War, Emmure, and Counterparts followed in advance of their sophomore LP, In Darkness, which appeared in late 2019.
Emerging from Pennsylvania in 2018 and combining the percussive force of second-generation drummer Max Portnoy with the pure, war-torn fury of vocalist and YouTube sensation Justin Bonitz, nu-core quartet TALLAH are on a mission to revamp and modernise the much-loved sound of popular nu-metal sensations of the early 2000s.
Drawing influence from the musical influences of their youth (the likes of Slipknot, Korn and Linkin Park), Tallah fuse the razor-sharp precision of these acts with the raw edges of modern hardcore music displayed by current sensations Code Orange, Vein, Candy and Fire From The Gods.
Having followed Justin’s popular YouTube channel for some time – which boasts perhaps the most popular scream tutorial at approximately 3m views, “How to Scream (10 Different Techniques)” – Max approached Justin to join a new project with guitarist Derrick Scheider and bassist Andrew Cooper, both of whom Max had formed previous relationships with on the Philadelphia music scene.
Tallah’s forthcoming album ‘Matriphagy’ expands upon the concept outlined in ‘No One Should Read This’ EP, armed with a disturbingly graphic tale that is to be taken both literally and metaphorically. Set to a pleasurably harrowing backdrop of brutally heavy musicianship, ‘Matriphagy’ is an unapologetic love-letter to chaos, and the sickening twist of the macabre.
About All That Remains: The Fall of Ideals 15th Anniversary
Since their formation in Massachusetts during 1998, All That Remains have built an undeniable legacy upheld by airtight songcraft, knifepoint precise metallic instrumentation, and stadium-size hard rock hooks. As a result, they’ve outlasted trials, tribulations, and trends to stand tall as as one of this century’s most consistent purveyors of heavy music with a bulletproof canon of arena-worthy anthems. All That Remains’ discography is highlighted by success at Active Rock including radio hits in the top 10 such as “Two Weeks,” “What If I Was Nothing,” and their first number one “Stand Up,”. Averaging 1 million monthly listeners on Spotify (an unprecedented feat for a metal band in any era), while cumulative sales eclipse 1 million albums worldwide. Not to mention, they’ve earned five consecutive Top 10 debuts on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart and four in the Top 5. Most recently, 2017’s Madness spawned the smash cover of Garth Brooks’ “The Thunder Rolls,” which trended on VEVO and generated 21 million plus total views and 8 million Spotify streams in under a year’s time.
In addition to packing houses as a headliner, they’ve practically burned down festival stages everywhere from Rock on the Range to Welcome to Rockville.
This tour marks the 15 year anniversary of the band’s 2006 album THE FALL OF IDEALS.
