STEVE CHILTON – Tall Heights – November 6 at The Rebel Lounge
“Tall Heights is a new band who just put out a great album Pretty Colors For Your Actions. Their song “House On Fire” has been on my constant rotation since it was released. It has a great saxophone line to start out, and it is first track on our Spotify Playlist. They just toured with Ben Folds, and they will be at The Rebel Lounge on Election night, so go vote and then come see them. ” (TIX)

JEFF TAYLOR – Stephen Steinbrink – December 6 at The Rebel Lounge
“We just announced this winter tour date for Phoenix native Stephen Steinbrink and I couldn’t be more excited – he hasn’t performed here in a while, and will return this time with a new album under his belt. Sean Bonnette (of AJJ) and Gabi are set to open, so it’s a solid lineup too!” (TIX)

DEVAN HASH – Astronoid – October 14 at The Rebel Lounge
“Astronoid has this captivating ability to mix fast and heavy, with soothing and ambient. That really makes this band extra irresistible to me. I can get lost in a mellow track and next thing I know, my face is being melted off by guitar licks and blast beats. A real musical adventure.” (TIX)

SHANNON HARDEN – Tancred – October 16 at Lunchbox
“Tancred, Prince of Galilee, was a leader of the First Crusade, the late 1090s attempt by Pope Urban to recapture the Holy Land for the Church. I’m not sure what kind of crusade Tancred the band is on, but the solo project of Jess Abbott (formerly of Now, Now) has certainly captured mine and others’ attention, which is pretty much the same as the Holy Land if you’re a musician. I first came into contact with her music when she was on tour with Speedy Ortiz, and immediately fell in love with her specific flavor of catchy sad-girl pop songs. I can’t wait to see her pour her heart out live in a venue as intimate as The Lunchbox!” (TIX)

SAVES THE DAY Announce New Album 9 & Spring Tour – March 3 at Crescent Ballroom

Saves The Day returned today with “Kerouac & Cassady” – the second single from their highly-anticipated new album 9. “Kerouac & Cassady” is the perfect soundtrack to a Saturday night drive. Each lyric is a callback to a memory from the band’s two decades accumulating memories on tour and even the song’s title is a nod to the beatnik classic On The Road. It’s a propulsive rock anthem that triggers the sort of adrenaline rush that convinces the listener that anything is possible when they walk out their door on a Saturday night. You can listen to the record now on YouTubeSpotify or most of your favorite other streaming sites. Along with the release of “Kerouac & Cassady”, Saves The Day also are excited to announce the second leg of their North American tour running Feb 15 through March 8.

Saves The Day will be releasing 9, their first new album in five years, on October 26th via seminal rock label Equal Vision Recordswill be SavesThe Day’s ninth studio record and contains nine songs that, when listened to together, tells the story of the band from the perspective of its founder, Chris Conley. The album offers this first ever autobiographical look into the band’s history in a way that is as exhaustive as it is poetic and makes the listener a part of the songwriting process. As Conley puts it “This album is the story of Saves The Day and my own personal journey through life, which all unfolded as my relationship with music progressed”. On the surface, chronicles the epic story of a group of kids from New Jersey who realized their dream and became an international sensation. On a deeper level, it shows how Conley “woke up” and became aware of his own consciousness through his relationship with music and the unbelievable adventures it has inspired since he formed the act in 1997.

Saves The Day will be at Crescent Ballroom in downtown Phoenix on March 3rd with Remo Drive and Mighty.
