OLD FLINGS

While the name OLD FLINGS certainly hints at reflection on love lost and romantic despondency, the band was born out of all emotional struggle and heartache, the kind which every person has and will endure. The lyrics cover other issues, such as broken friendships, anger and betrayal, family, friendship, personal loss to suicide, growing up with religion, hopelessness and depression.

Musically, Old Flings began as an acoustic side-project for guitarist Matt Evans, known more for his riffs in hardcore punk band JUST DIE! and thrash metal party lords MEGAHURTZ. In an attempt to breathe life into his song writing, Evans picked up his electric guitar and enlisted the help of former JUST DIE! bassist Jordan Luff and Travis Hollifield on drums. With the help of friends across the region and the East Coast, the trio eventually began playing shows outside of Asheville and constructed something much bigger than any of them had previously anticipated. The 2012 debut LP, “SPITE” (Self Aware Records, Bitter Melody Records), hit a level of success that, while still modest, none of them had reached before in previous musical endeavors. Evans and Luff decided to chase that feeling, replacing Hollifield with Phil Hickey on drums before securing fellow Asheville-based drummer Springs Wade.

Since the release of “SPITE”, Old Flings has contributed to four split 7” EPs with released across an array of indie labels: North Carolina-based Bitter Melody Records, New York-based Tour Van Records, Tampa, FL-based Kiss of Death Records, and UK-based Speedowax Records. After several tours up and down the East Coast, an excursion into Canada, and several regional and national festivals (including FEST 12), the band is taking time off from their semi-regular touring schedule to focus on writing for a forthcoming second full-length album. In the mean time, catch them at the 2014 FALL LINE FESTIVAL in Richmond, VA (September 6th) and FEST 13 in Gainesville, FL (November 1st)!

SPILL

Rock band from Pennsylvania featuring one electric guitar, one electric bass guitar and one acoustic drum set.

JADEAPES

Es ist einfach zu hören, aber hart zu fühlen: Der Sound der Jadeapes, knackiger Garage-Rock mit einem vergangenheitsliebenden aber zukunftsträchtigen 70s Anstrich. Stimmige Klangszenarien – emotional gewürzt mit einer Prise Hoffnungslosigkeit. Denn da sind keine Kompromisse zwischen ihren shreddigen Sounds und keine Liebeleien mit beschwichtigenden Liedzeilen. Normkonform sind die anderen, sie dagegen sind ehrlich, zu viert und aus München! Von diesem traditionsliebenden Ort aus beweisen sie, dass man sehr wohl jung und schön sein und dennoch rohe, altehrwürdige, handgemachte Melodien mit Seele lieben und produzieren kann. So wave your freak flag high! Denn einer muss es ja tun.
