Wanting to pull North Carolina out of “Dark ages” and bring the state into a “Machine age” where everything is Sik nasty and everyone is down for having a good night with good music. Having the talent to flirt with Experimental/Post-Hardcore is pretty awesome if you ask us. Why? You don’t usually hear a band that goes out of the box and sound amazing at the same time.

Word? No Safety Word Orange
Starting from the beautiful Los Angeles Safety Word Orange has made such a name for themselves after all they have been through. Working their asses off Safety Word Orange has made a huge fan base, an awesome pop/rock band together without a record label, manager or an agent. While in CA their first self-named EP was born! The adventure of bringing the band was a little tough coming back to VA, but worked! Who can blame going to craigslist to find another guitarist? After they got the magic back in the band they released their second debut EP, On Your Mark, Get Set…. After the success of their second EP, SWO wanted more. Going to producer Bryan Russell to help out with the third release. Making this album a tad bit different, no more drunk partying but actual real life struggles for their fans to take a step into the band’s life. If you haven’t checked out Safety Word Orange here is what you need to do.

Happy Birthday, Dear Christie
Having a lot of bands from Ohio we have yet another one, Dear Christie. Fast in your face pop/rock two brothers Adam and Eric decided to come out to the world to embrace their musical talents. Wondering where the name Christie came from? It is their little sisters name as they were writing her a birthday card. Forming the band was a piece of cake as everything fell into place with ease. Releasing their debut EP “First things First” the band had a great future to look up to. One band member Armen had to leave the band due to personal issues in his future. Dear Christie had another guitarist and close friend in mind, Tyler Rose. The four piece band is one of the coolest band that we have heard in a while, not to hardcore and not to slow but just right with a lot of passion in their music. Playing for their fans and a great time Dear Christie will be around for whiles to come so keep a look out for them!
