Ice Nine Kills
Ice Nine Kills
Boston Rock/Metal act, Ice Nine Kills, burst onto the scene in late 2007 with the release of the experimental and lyrically tongue in cheek EP, The Burning. The band, who takes it's name from the classic piece of American literature, Cat's Cradle, by renowned satire novelist, Kurt Vonnegut, has always strived to blur the lines between melody and unbridled aggression. After a successful stint on 2009's Vans Warped Tour, INK headed into the studio to record Safe Is Just A Shadow,the follow up to The Burning EP. Safe is Just a Shadow was released in July of 2010, to coincide with another run on The Vans Warped Tour. After the massive success of a Kickstarter campaign in which the band raised over $22,000, The Predator EP was released in early 2013 to much praise from old and new fans alike. This undeniable heat the band had created landed them on both the 2012 and 2013 additions of The All-Stars tour opening for metal heavyweights like Suicide Silence and Every Time I Die; as well as another stint on the The Vans Warped Tour 2013.

The success of The Predator EP, fused with an impressive touring résumé, provided INK with their biggest break yet; being the first band signed to Fearless Records' brand new imprint label, Outerloop Records. Building on the success of the last year, the band released their highly anticipated new album, The Predator Becomes the Prey, which debuted at #3 on the billboards heatseeker's chart and #13 on the billboard hard rock charts. The band followed up the release with a nationwide tour alongside metalcore scene stars Attila. For the Summer of 2014 INK was invited to perform on the entirety of the Vans Warped Tour on the highly coveted Monster Energy Stage. The founder of Warped, Kevin Lyman, was so impressed with the band that he bumped them up to the Main Stage for an entire week of the tour- having them play alongside some of today's biggest names in punk and metal music.
Something You Whisper
Something You Whisper is showing they have what it takes to become an iconic band in the post-hardcore scene. Recently dropping their new EP "From The Other Side", a strong Canadian tour history, and the cultivation of an American fan base, SYW seem destined for the next step.

The Cambridge, Ontario-based band began to take shape in early 2011; harnessing the talent of Wes Will (vocals), Tom McArthur (drums), Kyle Adshade (guitar/vocals), Austin Palladini (guitar/vocals), and Brian Shepherd (bass/vocals). The quintet defines themselves in their songs and performances, emanating an intense energy that masterfully blends with catchy hooks and choruses. This was exemplified in the bands debut EP, "Nostalgia", with the help of producer Jordan Valeriote (Silverstein, Structures, and Dead and Divine) at Sundown Studios. In February 2013 the band re-issued "Nostalgia", including two songs previously unavailable and their brand new track "20/20 in the 3rd."

Something You Whisper has toured extensively in support of their music, in 2012 alone performing 125 shows across Canada as an unsigned artist. They have shared the stage with acts like Sleeping With Sirens, We Came As Romans, Like Moths to Flames, Set It Off, Ice Nine Kills, Abandon All Ships, and The Word Alive. In 2013 SYW embarked on another Canadian tour, playing strong festival dates including select dates with Silverstein and The Wonder Years. The bands epic live show has won thousands of fans over as well as a slot on their local Warped Tour date in the summer of 2012.

In 2013 SYW travelled to Detroit to work with Brent Allen and Devin Oliver of I See Stars. While there they honed their musicianship and song writing skills, which can be seen in their latest singles: "Who I've Become", and "Anti-Conscience." The tracks on their new release, "From The Other Side" were mastered by Joey Sturgis and recorded by Doug Meadows and has garnered the band their highest recognition yet. Since the EP's release, SYW has reached goals, and gained a better understanding of who they are as musicians, and who they will become in the future.
