Founded in 2010 in Atlanta, Georgia, noise rock/punk sludge band Whores have established themselves as one of the most successful and motivated bands in the genre today. Elements of Helmet, Melvins, and the Amphetamine Reptile roster can be heard throughout their catalog, but Whores are no regurgitated throwback act. Through intense, cathartic live performances and the perfected aggressive tenacity present on their recordings, the band has gained a fervent following sure to do nothing but grow in the years to come.

Berlin-based HEADS. have defied geography, embraced technology and clocked up a lot of air miles to bring the band to where it is now.
Formed of two native Germans and one wandering Australian, HEADS. collectively are kindred spirits, drawing inspiration from the same filthy pools. Inspired by early ‘90s acts under labels such as Touch and Go and Sub Pop, like Shellac, Melvins and The Jesus Lizard, and by the likes of Young Widows, My Disco, Total Control or Rowland S. Howard and Nick Cave – HEADS. are much more than the sum of their parts.
Serendipity and pure good luck led to the paths of these musicians crossing. Fresh off the plane from Australia, with the sound of a former band disintegrating still ringing in his ears, vocalist and guitarist Ed Fraser set about finding new collaborators. The Ocean's bass player, Chris Breuer, meanwhile was seeking new creative outlets whilst on tour and when conversation started flowing with Ed, he roped in The Ocean road crew member, Hamburg-based Peter Voigtmann, on drums.
HEADS. formed in 2014, then signed with This Charming Man Records / Cargo Records in Germany, recorded in a heritage-listed building in the Swiss Alps and released our debut LP in 2015, which has since sold out of its first pressing.
Rolling Stone - “A brutally raw record, occupying the slither of space between knife-edge tension and collapsing despair.”
Alongside releasing their debut, HEADS. toured in Europe in 2015/16 with the likes of METZ (Canada), FJØRT (Germany), DOPE BODY (USA), NOTHING (USA), PROTOMARTYR (USA), and more. In 2017 HEADS. are excited to make their first full-length record and tour in support of this.
Crowd Of Chairs
Milk White Throat are an eclectic heavy rock group based in Brighton, England.
Established in 2011, MWT released their eponymous EP that year, followed by the self produced debut album ‘Death of Beauty’ in 2014. 2015 saw the release of the band's latest single, 'Under Duress', accompanied by their first music video.
In their formative years, the members of MWT met playing in separate groups that gigged together regularly in the south east, imitating their teenage heroes: bands such as Pantera and Metallica among others, until the disbandment of those acts brought the current members together. With the passing of time their individual listening tastes evolved and they developed a passion for progressive and classic rock, along with a wide variety of other genres. Originally a six piece, including saxophone and live synth/electro-beats, changes to personnel in 2012 led the band to advance as a streamlined four piece. The remaining members began working on songs for their debut album, which was written, recorded and produced exclusively by the band in a little known basement studio situated underneath Brighton’s hedonistic St James St between 2013 and 2014.
The result of all this is a unique and broadly influenced sound, underpinned by a deep appreciation for genre defining artists and musicianship.
Milk White Throat strive to create exciting, original music that is succinct and crucially, relevant in the live arena.
