Pyro Fighter
Pyro Fighter
Based out of Chicago, Pyro Fighter first caught attention opening for the Grammy Award winning Italian DJ, Benny Benassi in their then home town, Columbus, OH. With the aid of local rave lord DJ's Carma and Attak, along with the influence of local photographers, bloggers, and VJs, the organized hype has led to an all out take-over of the city and its inhabitants.

Not even a year after their formation, the group caught the attention of MTV and had their song "LMFAO" selected to be featured on the Season 2 Premier of the smash hit show "Jersey Shore". With over 5 million viewers, the response was overwhelming and led them to have nearly the entire track played again on the very next episode. After that, the internet hype for the track "LMFAO" has virtually exploded on YouTube, iTunes, and SoundCloud. The success of that placement led to their song "Electrobotic" being featured on the season 3 Premiere and 2nd episode of Jersey Shore along with a full screen I.D.... MTV threw Pyro Fighter in the mix again, adding them to the playlist of the movie "Worst. Prom. Ever." And, appropriately, MTV recently added Pyro to the playlist at O Music Awards "World's Longest Dance Party".

Less than 4 months after living in Chicago, the two teamed up with top world-wide DJ Bad Boy Bill and his producer Antonio Sage to re-produce their hit single "I'm The One". The song was released on their album "The Whole Universe Knows My Name" and on iTunes in August 2011. "I'm The One" was immediately picked up by DJ Spin who set the group up with their major radio debut on the Street Mix on Chicago's biggest radio station B96 and Riverside, California's KGGI.

They have their own station on Pandora, have topped the charts of PureVolume.com numerous times, have been featured on indie radio stations in the US and Canada, were named one of the top 15 acts to see at North Coast Music Festival (Right between Fatboy Slim and Wiz Kalifa), and are sponsored by the infamous Dirty Shirty Apparel.

The duo plans to keep releasing fresh singles to their hungry fan base as fast as they can pump them out and will be making their way to a city near you with their first stop of 2012 at Red Gorilla Festival in Austin Texas.

With a successful future ahead, thanks to incredible fan support, Pyro Fighter continues to conquer, not because they care, but because they don't give a FUCK.
Exit Ghost
Exit Ghost
One of Paste Magazine’s “Top 10 Illinois Bands You Should Listen To Now”, Chicago-based Exit Ghost has been sculpting its energetic brand of country-tinged, lyrical indie rock since the group’s formation in 2010. From the rooted acoustic creaks of The Pony Soldier EP (2010) to 2011’s lush Hang The Lights EP—a project engineered by Mike Hagler of Wilco’s Summerteeth-- Exit Ghost has proven itself an inspired and insatiable writing vehicle, with a live show hailed by Performer Magazine as “like After The Goldrush on steroids”. Move Alone, the group’s first full-length album, was released May 2, 2012.
Glowing House
Glowing House
Glowing House is a Denver-based new-folk band comprised of husband-and-wife duo Steve Varney and Jess Parsons and features a rotating cast of Denver's most prominent musicians. Almost two years after their critically acclaimed debut album, The Annual Demise of Every Aspen, Glowing House returns with their sophomore effort Days Run Out. Scheduled for release in June, 2012, Days Run Out reveals a highly evolved and polished sound for Glowing House. The band's musicianship can only be matched by their motivation to have you fall in love with their songs. For more information visit http://glowinghousemusic.com/
Rah Rah
Rah Rah
Originally formed as a trio in 2007 in Regina, SK, the now expansive rock sextet Rah Rah, will release their new record, The Poet’s Dead digitally on October 2, 2012 and physically on October 23, 2012 via Hidden Pony Records. Recorded in the fall of 2011, under the production guidance of indie-rock recording experts Gus Van Go and Werner F (The Stills, Hollerado, Preistess), Rah Rah have fine-tuned the band and refined their sound. Lyrically, The Poet’s Dead showcases some of the finest songwriting from the band and the strongest collective step forward to date.

Known for their energetic, enthralling live shows, where constantly swapping instruments and lead vocal duties is the norm, their shows also feature a parade of balloons, confetti canons, and the constant presence of the band's white, persian robotic mascot cat.

Rah Rah was crowned “Best New Canadian Band” and “Best New Alternative Band” by iTunes Canada in 2009. The band’s songs have also been featured as iTunes Single of the Week and Starbucks Pick of the Week in Canada. The band has toured incessantly behind their previous two albums, sharing tours with the likes of Minus The Bear in Canada and USA, Wintersleep in Europe and Canada, and label-mates Said The Whale.
