Crisis In Hollywood
In 2006 Crisis in Hollywood leapt onto the Orlando scene with a refreshing brand of pop punk infused with three part vocal harmonies and infectious hooks. In a city dominated by hardcore bands, they quickly developed a following that has continued to grow through two full-length album releases and multiple U.S. tours.
After only a brief beginning, the band was signed to Financial Records, based out of Clearwater Florida and got to work on their debut album, “Between The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.” The release was welcomed with a number of positive reviews and Crisis in Hollywood began a series of tours from the east coast, to middle America, eventually making their way out west to California.
In late 2008, Bayside lead singer, Anthony Raneri, signed on to produce and co-engineer their sophomore release, “Safe and Sound.” After five weeks in the studio, the album was received with an even better response than their first record and ushered in a new year of touring.
The PR machine was helmed by Rey Roldan (Less Than Jake, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Chiodos), which resulted in significantly more attention this time around. Magazine mentions and interviews galore eventually led to the album’s lead single, Safe & Sound (Featuring guest vocals by Johnny Vegas of The Mighty Mighty Bosstones), to be featured on Fox’s 2010 MLB World Series playoffs.
During their support of the album, Crisis in Hollywood toured thirty five state, sharing the stage with bands such as punk legends Pennywise, Slightly Stoopid, The Casting Out (Ex-Boy Sets Fire members), Pepper, Senses Fail and more. The band claimed a broader fan base due to the enormous demographic their music had finally reached.
In an effort to quickly release new music and thank their fans, Crisis in Hollywood released a free digital E.P. Love is Not Enough, which was soon followed by another single. On February 22, 2011 the band debuted their zombie-themed music video for the single, “Newlyweds & Nearly-Deads” featuring clips from the upcoming movie Opening Night of the Living Dead, which include a brief cameo from actor Danny Trejo.
After garnering more recognition with every release, the band is dedicated to hitting the road and writing their third full-length album. Future plans include a 2011 east coast summer tour as well as another stint in the studio. Crisis in Hollywood have no intention of stopping any time soon as they continue to spread their sound across the nation solidifying their place in the heart of the fans
Formed in the summer of 2011, The Passenger, is an alternative rock band hailing from the state where old people go to die: Florida. Mentally rooted in the mid-nineties Saturday Night Live/”Grunge” Era, The Passenger, and their music, intend to inspire you to dust off your Doc Martens and tie a flannel around your waist. Their latest release "A Dog Named Bear" EP has seen the band grow musically and in members. Original members Noah Kussack, and Beau Rothman added some new faces to the mix with the additions of Bennett Newsome, Manny Monteagudo. Prior to recording ADNB bassist Steven Palmer parted ways with the band to pursue other interest. The addition of Will Brotz on the bass completed the missing puzzle piece of what is The Passenger. ADNB was produced by Justin Beckler (Andy Matchett & The Minks, Matt butcher, The Dropa Stone), and was recorded in our homes. Truly making it a homemade record. ADNB was mastered by ledged Tony Battaglia(Puddle of mudd, Shinedown, Mandy Moore).
Their self-produced debut album, “Here Today. Gone To Maui.,” mixed by Ed Rose(Get Up Kids, Motion City Soundtrack, Appleseed Cast…), embodies a well-rounded, full bodied, super catchy rock sound reminiscent of bands like Jimmy Eat World, The Get Up Kids, Foo Fighters, Weezer, etc…

A Dying Regime
A Dying Regime is a 5 piece Punk/Metal band from Orlando, Fl. With an emphasis on musicianship, creative song writing and freedom of expression, the group is currently in the process of promoting their first studio album, which was released March 2,2012.
A Dying Regime was formed in 2011, when a group of friends, who had each played the local circuit in other bands and collaborated with each other in previously casual sessions, decided to join forces and perform at a benefit show for a close friend who had been in a terrible automobile accident. While the group rehearsed for the show, each band member concluded that the group's chemistry was undeniable, and A Dying Regime would become a full time commitment. Since inception, the group has released their first studio album (Lost Ave, 2012), and played with the likes of Authority Zero, Falling In Reverse, Oh Sleeper and many more. With no sign of slowing down, ADR's story has only just begun.
