QUICKSAND
QUICKSAND
Mid-1990's New York City band with roots in the New York Hardcore scene. Featuring ex-members of Gorilla Biscuits, Bold, Youth Of Today, Absolution, & Beyond. The band released their first material on Revelation Records and later signed to Polydor Records, releasing two full-length studio albums, before breaking up in 1995. In 1997, the band reunited, went on tour and began working on a third album, which has never been released. They eventually broke up again in 1999. As of mid-2012, Quicksand is reuniting again for shows.
GLASSJAW
GLASSJAW
Glassjaw is a four-piece post-hardcore band from Long Island, NY formed by lead singer Daryl Palumbo and guitarist Justin Beck in 1993.

The Glassjaw lineup has fluctuated throughout their history, with the core of Palumbo and Beck writing all music and lyrics. After the release of landmark albums in 2000's Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence and 2002's Worship and Tribute , the lineup added bassist Manuel Carrero and drummer Durijah Lang in 2005 to form their most permanent lineup, which remained stable until 2015. During this time the band wrote new material, toured on occasion and released two EPs in 2011, Our Color Green and Coloring Book. As of 2015, both Durijah and Manny left the band and were replaced by Chad Hasty on drums and Travis Sykes on bass, both formerly of Glass Cloud, and the band's long-awaited 3rd LP, Material Control, is due for release December 1st, 2017.

SPOTLIGHTS
Spotlights is the Brooklyn-based married couple of Mario and Sarah Quintero.
In Spotlights, the Quinteros summon a supreme sound, equally heavy and dreamy. A tar-pit sludge-rock foundation is blanketed by layers of shimmering shoegaze. Their debut full length TIDALS was released on Crowquill Records in the spring of 2016 as a follow up to the synth laden, doom-pop EP, Demonstration. Tidals' songs rock hard and memorably, bringing to mind hints of bands, from Failure to My Bloody Valentine to Godflesh to Smashing Pumpkins and beyond.
Spotlights was handpicked by Deftones to support the band on three weeks of its summer U.S. tour in August of 2016. Select dates included support from 90’s post-hardcore, greats, Refused. They quickly followed up with a second national run in September with If These Trees Could Talk.
In December 2016 they self released the 3 song “odds and ends” EP, SPIDERS, featuring a cover of the song She Spider by MEW, and a remix of Joseph, the closing track on TIDALS, done by Aaron Harris (Isis/Palms). The Spiders EP served as the perfect way to hold fans over while the band continued work on their new record.

When it came time to record the the follow up full length to TIDALS, the Quinteros didn’t have to look far to find the perfect producer. “Choosing to work with Aaron [Harris] on our new record was a no brainer for us. We get along great and he completely understands where we are coming from musically and knows just how to capture that.” says Mario. Sarah adds “Plus, he’s an incredible drummer and we tricked him into playing on four of the songs!”. The three of them spent a week in Los Angeles at Palmquist Studios, putting together one of the most dynamic, and emotive collection of songs to date.
