Listener
If your best friend was a band, who would they be? I think they might be something like Listener. Because Listener is a band of best friends, who have experienced the best and worst of times, and have survived on songs. No one knows you like they do and no other band can describe how you feel like they can. They have captured just the right words and just the right sounds and pinned on them all of our deepest emotions, our greatest fears, our toughest challenges, and our unbridled hopes. This is a group that sticks close to your heart no matter where you go, who you're with, or how you feel. When you put in a Listener album every song is like an old friend and every moment enjoyable.

Beginning in 2002 as a solo act the band Listener has evolved over the years into a full fledged rock and roll band, and has toured the world over playing their brand of Talk Music. Based out of Kansas City Missouri with Dan Smith on vocals and bass, Kris Rochelle on drums, and Jon Terrey on guitar. With thought provoking stage banter, music that keeps your mind busy, and words that quickly take hold of your heart, Listener is a near perfect balance of what words and music are supposed to be.
Birds In Row
Birds In Row
French trio Birds in Row create brutal, aggressive melodic hardcore with lyrics that address personal struggles as well as dissatisfaction with society.

Birds in Row sing in English in order to reach a wide audience, and they prefer to operate as a unit rather than individuals, only referring to themselves by their first initials and cropping their faces out of their promotional photographs and videos. Formed in Laval, France in 2009, their debut 7" EP, Rise of the Phoenix, was released by Vitriol Records in 2010. The 12" EP Cottbus followed in 2011 on Throatruiner/Swarm of Nails, and both releases were compiled onto the 2011 LP Collected, released by both Vitriol and Throatruiner. Deathwish Inc., an American label associated with hardcore band Converge, signed the group in November of 2011, and Birds in Row completed their full-length debut by the beginning of the new year. They toured America with Loma Prieta that March, and their first album, You, Me and the Violence, was released in September. Several more tours in the States, U.K., and Europe followed, including stints with Converge, Touché Amoré, the Chariot, and others. In fall of 2015, Birds in Row released a collaborative EP with We Are in the Country on Throatruiner, as well as the Personal War EP, their second release for Deathwish Inc.
