Planes Mistaken For Stars
Planes Mistaken For Stars
Planes Mistaken For Stars formed in Peoria, Illinois in 1997, and relocated to Denver Colorado in 1999. From the outset, they were an artistic anomaly; carrying both a worn rust belt heart a warm midwestern soul. Collectively the band combined different kinds of musical rebellion; hardcore aggression, punk energy, and gritty rock n’ roll spirit into their own special noise. Ultimately laying the blueprint for today’s emotional punk rock resurgence.

From 1999 to 2006, Planes Mistaken For Stars released music on labels Deep Elm, Dim Mak, No Idea Records and more, before signing to Abacus/Century Media in 2006. After countless tours in those years with the likes of Converge, Against Me!, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Hot Water Music, the band flamed out and announced an amicable split in 2007. During that time members went on to play in Git Some, Bull Of Heaven, Hawks and Doves, and Wovenhand. In 2010, Planes Mistaken For Stars reunited for The Fest in Gainesville, Florida. In 2012, the band also reunited for a successful East Coast Tour. Since then, they have been quietly and persistently working on new music, due to surface on Deathwish sometime in the future.

On July 14th, Deathwish will reissue “Mercy” from Planes Mistaken For Stars, their much-beloved and highly influential 2006 album. Along with newly revamped packaging, this definitive version has also been remastered from the original 1/2” tapes by Brad Boatwright at Audiosiege (Sunn O))), Modern Life Is War), sonically making it more powerful and textural than ever before. Produced by Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Cursive) “Mercy” is a beautifully dark and melodious masterwork that is affecting in ways rarely experienced. Each of its eleven songs is a haunting yet hopeful personal tale, vulnerable but vicious in tone. Genre bending and ground breaking in their ability to intimately connect with listeners from all walks of life.
Oh, Are They?
Oh, Are They?
This is who we are. And who are we? We are you. And who are you? You, are one of us. And who are they? They are not us. They are... Oh, Are They?
STARTERJACKET
STARTERJACKET is a Philadelphia based rock band created by lead singer/guitarist Michael Metzger. Using heavy overdrive, high reverb tones and sometimes spacey vocals, this band takes pride in its "loud and groovy" sound. Over the last few months, the band has been extremely focused on finishing the full length record at headroom studios and preparing for the drop. Now that it is finished, the full release is soon to come. You can however listen to "The Glow," their recently dropped single which shows a more "somber" side of them. You can find them on:
