Formed back in 2008, the band released a 5-song demo tape, followed by the Shitty Rambo 7inch the next year, and finally their debut full-length, Not Like This, in 2010 - all on Long Island-based Dead Broke Rekerds. The band garnered quite a bit of attention, not only for their music, but also because they were hailed as a "supergroup" (Punknews.org), featuring members of Latterman, Small Arms Dealer, and more. In the following years, the band released a split 7inch, and toured hard. Iron Chic's long-awaited sophomore full-length, The Constant One ups the band's ante, boasting nearly 40 minutes of their heartfelt, signature melodic punk, with big buildups, warm harmonies, and gripping climaxes. The band tackle somewhat altered subject matter from 2010's Not Like This with deeply embedded metaphors hinting at themes of communication, perseverance, and self-worth, making The Constant One no mere sequel, but rather its own set of cleverly cloaked ideas soundtracked by a bed of driving riffs and life-affirming, tremendous melodies. After the Fall An infectious sound and voice, delivered with authority and authenticity, that speaks to their listeners head on, straight up, and with no excuses. After the Fall is poised and ready to connect to the masses through their music, energy, and live performances. AtF was featured on Pittsburgh's 102.5 WDVE Morning Show's "The Coffee House" July 2007. They also shot video and played to a soldout crowd for a taping of "Underground TV" which aired on FOX 8 in January of 2009. After the Fall independently released 3 albums: AtF (self titled) in 2011, "Hope Dies Hard" in 2008, and a 5 Song EP in 2005. The Holy Mess A fashion-crust Pollack, a dude that looks like if Ben Franklin was young and handsome, a drunken 90lb weakling and a hair-farming little guy that looks like he either parties with the Beastie Boys or the Arab Spring walk into a bar. Sounds like the start of a pretty good joke right? Well, this joke calls itself the Holy Mess and chances are that it walks into a bar, breaks a bunch of things, insults a few people, angrily grumbles and then melts your dick right off your pelvis with their sloppily aggressive take on the already sloppy and aggressive pop punk sound popularized by bands like Dillinger 4 and Lifetime. The punchline of the joke is that the Holy Mess don’t give a fuck on a level so profound that when I asked them some history so I could write this bio I just got a message back that said “if that ain’t country, I’ll kiss your ass.” Yet somehow, they have managed to crank out a modern masterpiece of booze soaked, regret fueled bangers that they’ve foolishly titled "Cande Ru Las Degas" and even more foolishly left up to the flying monkeys over at Red Scare Industries to disseminate to the masses, and said dissemination will commence August 2012, so hold onto your fancy opera glasses, grandpa. -Brendan Kelly Ma Jolie Ma Jolie is a band from Philadelphia in the vein of Superchunk, Samiam and shit that sounds like that . With members who have all been in multiple active bands, they put together a collection of songs that bring to mind the best of the late 90s punk world. Combining tight, fun rhythms, clever guitar hooks, and catchy vocals, they recently recorded their first record at the Headroom Studio in Philly. They are looking forward to releasing the record soon, but for now, the entire record is available for download on their Bandcamp page - http://majolie.bandcamp.com/ Get tickets: http://ticketf.ly/1Fangi9
