The Animal In Me
The Animal In Me
The Animal In Me's single "I Created A Monster" has been receiving warm reviews from fans and critics alike. Armed with a fresh take on a genre that is over saturated with cookie-cutter bands, fans are demanding and eager for the release of TAIM's debut EP produced by Tom Denney (A Day To Remember/Secrets /For The Fallen Dreams) at Diamond Studios in Ocala, Florida.

The band gained serious momentum in the summer of 2012. Outerloop Management and The Agency Group have given TAIM the opportunity of a lifetime when they decided to pick up the band. Under the direction of some of the industry's best, The Animal In Me are hard at work developing themselves into the national act that they are destined to be.
Set to Stun
SET TO STUN is a three-piece sci-fi-post-hardcore band from Southern California. Without the limitations of genre, their music and high energy live show has gathered a devoted cult following. Tour experience has included playing main stages at festivals across the country such as South By So What, Unsilent Night, and even spots on Vans Warped Tour.

They released their Dreamcatchers EP in July 2014. The tracks are part of their upcoming full-length concept album, chronicling the adventures of Billy "The Kid" King, a time-traveling vigilante and last surviving member of the faction, "The Desperado Undead". Upon his journeys through time he meets his nemesis Captain Jack "The Ripper" Trips, reincarnations of his love interest, genies, demons, pirates, gun slingers, and the incarnations of evil itself.

SET TO STUN signed with Tragic Hero Records in 2014.
Comprised of Stephanie Smith (vocals/keyboards), Dylan Weschler (guitars), Pat Stanton (guitars) and brothers Jake (drums) and Paul Stolz (bass), VARSITY is flexipop transfused with sepia-soaked indie rock, a five-napkin band wiping down memories of faux-nostalgia and expired suburbia.

In 2013, the Chicago quintet debuted its first EP, Thanks for Nothing, and subsequently released VARSITY, a self-titled LP, in March 2015. Both releasesare the infectious sum of each member's musical aesthetics, and impossibly weighted with all the good stuff - a misbehaved tone and frenetic pulse that polaroids the last recess before summer vacation, tetherball realism, and sunny slaps in the face. Smith's pliable lyrics and remedying voice make each song feel like she wrote it just for you--your very own five-foot-something bedroom beat poet.

The well-received releases garnered VARSITY an eclectic following, shimmering blog affection, and a spot in Chicago weekly Redeye's "10 under-the-radar, must-own Chicago releases from 2015." Along with being featured over the airwaves on WHPK, WXRT's "Local Anesthetic," CHIRP Radio and WLUW's Clambake (showcasing songs by "ladies, women, and grrrls"), the band's badges include support for Courtney Barnett, Alvvays, Car Seat Headrest, Twin Peaks, Cymbals Eat Guitars, Diet Cig and Protomartyr.

"VARSITY...takes summery pop hooks and gives them a distinctly rough edge, likeif acts like Tennis or Best Coast had more crunchy guitar riffs and piercing rock jams," writes Josh Terry, Chicago Redeye.

The band is currently releasing a new digital double A-side single, "Smash / Still Apart", and kicking off another East Coast tour in July. Much like the acclaimed split single releases before them, VARSITY again sounds wistful, unhinged, and fun like a fridge full of beer.
