Prior to working with Ontologics on LP III, P-NUT collaborated on their sophomore album, on track “Primal Discourse”, and previously said of the duo, “they turned this song into like a science fiction masterpiece. And if we can’t beat that, I think we should just do a cover of their song” – P-Nut, popdose.com interview, referencing the “Go” Demo.

Ontologics’ have had three Top 30  consecutive albums on the Relix Magazine/ Jambands.com national college radio chart for over three consecutive months and breaking the Top 10 with both records.

COLORMEKRAZY!

The brainchild of a bedroom-pop artist & an ex-scene kid, ColorMeKrazy! is a collective of musicians/maniacs hailing from Raleigh, North Carolina.

In 2023, vocalist & producer Mia Brunal teamed up with guitarist & recording engineer Tom Detrick to meld the saccharine aesthetic & sensibilities of modern hyperpop artists (Brakence, 100 Gecs, Charlie XCX) with the powerful, dark, scream-crying-in-the-rain-angst of yesteryear’s emo titans (My Chemical Romance, Senses Fail, Taking Back Sunday) into a brand new, never before heard sound. Dotingly, they call this new genre “Hyper-Rock.”

Soon after the band’s inception, their musical path collided with that of another duo, consisting of producer/drummer Zach Gehr, & guitarist/creative visionary Drew Hutchins & the rest is history.

OLD BRIER
Website | Spotify | Bandcamp | Instagram | Facebook
Old Brier is an Indie Rock band from Raleigh, North Carolina. Started by five friends in a storage unit, Old Brier has a heavy, experimental sound inspired by alternative rock artists like Manchester Orchestra, Microwave, and The Foo Fighters.

You can find Old Brier playing at local venues in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area.

Lead singer and songwriter, Tristan McGee, is a storyteller, spinning narrative into the surprisingly introspective songs. Paired with a guitar heavy sound, Old Brier is a unique and fresh take on Indie Rock. While their music is not only an interesting listen – with unexpected changes and thought-provoking lyrics – it is even better experienced live to capture the fullness of the band’s sound and energy. Old Brier’s chemistry and charisma is a joy to watch and brings you back to the heart of what it means to be a band – rocking out for the love of music!
