"THIS IS THE MOST EXPLOSIVE & HOOKY SEASONS AFTER RECORD TO DATE"
To say that the new Seasons After record Manifesto is an evolution would be an understatement. The album set to release in November 11th, 2016 is a brash declaration of the policies, goals, and opinions of a band that has weathered the storm and come back with a vengeance. Building on past radio success with three Top 40 singles and over 3.5 million YouTube views, the band has grown, matured, endured, and developed a chip on their shoulder that results in a blistering array of songs that will satiate the tastes of both rock and metal music fans alike. Guitarist Jimmy Beattie states, "This album was written with nothing but the truth in mind. It's about the unspoken realities that a lot of us live with, and some of the hard truths we all face at one time or another. The idea is to let listeners know that they are not alone, and that someone understands. We can find each other in the dark."

The record truly is a roller-coaster ride that will draw the listener in with every dynamic change. Seasons After uses massive choruses and hooks mixed with heart-wrenching melodies and shrieking, chugging, glass shattering brutality to convey the true spirit and personality of the band. Front-man Tony Housh adds, "This album is the culmination of everything we have learned both as a signed and independent band, and as individuals over the years. We all stepped into this commitment together years ago, and this truly has become our Manifesto".

Listeners can expect to experience a variety of emotions ranging from rage to bliss and everything in between. The band has truly arrived in thunderous fashion with this record and successfully bridged the gap and improved on their already vast catalog of songs. The desperation and longing for something more truly translates on this record. Having toured coast-to-coast multiple times, the band is primed and ready to do it again to further grow their already rabid fan-base, and showcase what their hard work and dedication have brought forth in the form of their newest release, Manifesto.
Bridge To Grace
Bridge To Grace
A fixture on the rock music scene, Bridge To Grace has been impressing audiences with their energetic live show performance and songwriting skills since early 2012. Loaded with powerful songs that range from hard-hitting rockers to emotionally driven ballads, David Garcia (vocals), Alex Cabrera (guitar, vocals, piano), Christian Lowenstein (bass) and Justin Little (drum, vocals) have a musical chemistry like no other. Their unique and compelling sounds leave fans wanting more and their motto of “write a song a day” shows just how determined and dedicated they are to ‘making it. Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, Bridge To Grace was formed by Cabrera in 2010 when he recruited Lowenstein, whom he met while attending Atlanta’s Music Matters. Two years later, Little joined and finally Garcia, thanks to producer Rick Beato’s suggestion that vocal tracks of Garcia be sent to Cabrera. After one listen, Cabrera knew he was the voice for Bridge To Grace and the band was born! In late 2013, Bridge To Grace released their first EP “Staring in the Dark,” produced by Beato (Shinedown, Need to Breathe) for indie label Long Run Records. Their first single “The Fold” was released to radio in January 2014 and landed in the Top 50 on the active rock charts. That same year, the guys completed their first nationwide tour sharing the stage with bands such as Theory of a Deadman, Pop Evil, Fuel, Puddle of Mudd, Smile Empty Soul, Tantric, and Drowning Pool. Additionally, Bridge To Grace has performed at The Taste of Madison, Dirt Fest, The Dane County Fair and Texas Showdown, Rockfest 2016 in addition to doing several radio and television appearances to promote their music and tour. The eponymous album BRIDGE TO GRACE was released in the Spring of 2015 and is available on iTunes, Amazon, and bridgetogracemusic.com. The band currently has released two top 40 singles and just released their fourth single, "Left Inside"
Saphyre Rain
Saphyre Rain
The 21st century sees the human race facing a suicide epidemic and raging self harm statistics. Open any newspaper, watch any nightly news report and you're surrounded with stories of addiction, abuse, neglect, fear, and pain. In your heart, you ask all the hard questions – Is this darkness taking over?

Saphyre Rain wants to remind the world that hope is alive.

Saphyre Rain is husband and wife team, Austin and Amanda Harras. Spending the last few months creating their debut EP Break the Cycle with producer Nick Sullivan, the duo has crafted a cutting rock sound that is inviting and inspiring.

Located in Northern Colorado, the two co-compose their material, with Austin as drummer and Amanda as vocalist/guitars. Released in October 2015, Break the Cycle (single Live) is characterized by driving metallic beats, dark guitar-riff tonality, and sincere melodic colors.

“Our generation is at a huge risk. There are so many kids out there who want to make a difference in our world, and we all struggle with pain in one form or another. Now is the time to fight back. Each and every one of us is making a difference in our world; we do have the power to change it for the better”, says Saphyre Rain.

In 2012, the couple self-produced a full length album, UnSaid I Love You's, recorded in a home-studio with their previous band, Suffocation in my Silence. October of 2014 saw Austin and Amanda taking a new direction, starting a project called “Saphyre Rain”. The band name was chosen based on the formation of the sapphire gemstone. A sapphire is created over time, under intense heat and pressure. Whatever 'impurities' are present at the time of formation result in the sapphire's final color.

“We wanted to have a metaphoric name for the band to encompass the idea that beautiful things come from the pain that we go through; essentially, that there is hope even in the darkness”, says Amanda.

With the expertise of producer Nick Sullivan, Austin and Amanda began the pre-production process for an EP at Consonance Productions in Denver, late 2014. The couple put focus on compelling song writing and branching out artistically and creatively. Amanda began experimenting with adding lead guitar parts to the song structures and composing bass lines; while Austin worked to tighten the drum parts and implement technical patterns. Andrew Whiteman of Red Tide Rising and Nick Sullivan played bass tracks on the Break the Cycle EP.

The vision behind Saphyre Rain is to tell our generation of the light, through music. We want every person that we come into contact with to know: you are loved, your life is precious, and your story is a critical element to the future.
