SeepeopleS, the original Anti-Genre indie musical pranksters, are proud to announce the 6th studio release in their critically acclaimed 16 year career, an EP entitled 'LOVE,' the first of three EPs in the 'LOVE,HATE,LIVE' series of releases planned for the coming year. SeepeopleS have been gaining an underground army of loyal fans since their inception in Boston MA 2000, music lovers who have celebrated their previous five albums, many of whom feature musical contributions from members of Morphine, Spearhead, Parliament/Funkadelic, and the Dave Matthews Band (Tim Reynolds), and their passionate and uniquely explosive live shows. Their music has also been featured on television shows such as "Judging Amy" and "the Gates" as well as movies "Canvasman, A Call To Action, Wheels Over Paradise, and The Legend of Cody Collins." After almost 1,500 live shows nationwide, and with 20K+ copies sold of their previous five albums, it is with a defiant pride that SeepeopleS releases their most accessible and mature collection of songs, 'LOVE'. The EP features five new tracks, and was created with long time co-producer Will Holland (Pixies, Dead Can Dance), and features a remix by the eclectic Mosart 212. Currently the band has begun announcing Tour Dates in support of 'LOVE'.
".. Formed in the Washington DC suburb of Alexandria Va in the spring of 2009, Skelliton came
together as a way to make music the band members wanted to hear. A sonic mix of street punk
and funk, fast and slow tempos, aggressive and passive, poetic anguish and pleasure - music that
is full of surprises.

Mike Miguel's lyrics and original voice soar over Skelliton's exciting music,
Amy Running Colt's earnest and colorful bass work sits perfectly on top of Matthew Bones
passionate and unique drum style. Ever since their first show in August of 2009,
the Skelliton live show has been completely booked solid. One of the most rewarding pleasures
of the band is the literal hundreds of bands they've made friends and shared the stage with..
The shared idea that they are not alone in their desire to provide awesome, creative, meaningful
and mind-blowing entertainment.

Signed and held at bay by legendary art maverick Ross Nathan and his French-Army Records label,
Skelliton compulsively writes and releases new material for them, leaving their mainstream corporate
contemporaries in the dust. Their first album "America's Newest Sound" was released
in 2010 .. listening to the 10 songs on the album today, you can practically feel the
wood chips flying off the table and hitting you in the face as Skelliton sculpts their sound ..

2011 saw the release of the classic "Skelliton Hits the Bricks" album .. the 10 songs an ode to city life
and the challenges of finding freedom in the urban environment.

2012 saw the release of the wild and wonderful "Let's Have It" .. the 9 songs composing
a punk throwback album filled with unexpected treasures.

"Dragon Wheels" released in 2014, was a juicy, unlikely mixed bag of prog rock funk and punk .. on these
10 songs, Skelliton reaches some of it's highest emotional highs and lows

Skelliton is a living breathing musical project, committed to originality and excitement, aided by
electric guitars, wires, drums and modern technology, ball point pens and many many sheets of paper.
Aided by the many wonderful music venues that welcome them back every year, and those
venues who welcome Skelliton for the first time, Skelliton gets in and gets out,
leaving only the glorious vapors of their bombastic performance.

Some may run for the hills, disbelieving and dismissive of what they see and hear, while others
remain loyal converts - amazed by the band's commitment to excellence.."
Faded Giant
Faded Giant
Faded Giant is an alternative rock trio from Fairfax, VA. Mixing intensity and honest expression, the band’s hard-hitting, emotionally affecting sound is heavily influenced by the ‘90s alt/grunge/indie rock scene as well as its members’ diverse musical tastes. Prepare to be won over by the intelligent songwriting, catchy hooks, and impassioned delivery of these DC-area veterans.

Formed from the ashes of Elements of Addiction in 2011, Faded Giant’s members have decades of music experience, and between them have played a wide range of venues. Singer/Guitarist Chris Sherman has been writing music since high school; his first band, a punk-inspired group called Lapdog, played their first show at the legendary Jaxx in 1998. Bassist Greg Fuhs was front man for the dark new-wave-influenced Anti-Social Club from 2000-2008, among other projects. Drummer Eric Gaudette has been pounding the skins for over 20 years, including with local outfits such as Ink Underneath and Enemy of Three.

Faded Giant aims to become one the DC area’s most respected original rock bands, with an eye toward playing the more prestigious local venues in support of larger touring acts.
