Counterfeit
Hailing from London, punk-rock outfit Counterfeit. are Jamie Campbell Bower, Tristan Marmomt, Roland Johnson, Sam Bower and Jimmy Craig. Last year they unleashed their debut album ‘Together We Are Stronger’ via Xtra Mile, which is full of punk-rock flair and showcases front-man Jamie Campbell Bower’s raw and honest vocals. The 10-track record garnered widespread acclaim from both fans and critics alike, including Kerrang! where front man Jamie graced the cover around the album’s release, Rock Sound, Upset Magazine and Radio 1’s Rock Show with Dan P Carter. Nominated for Best British Newcomer in 2016 at the Kerrang! Awards, and winning Best Live Band in 2017 at the AIM Awards, the 5-piece have gone from strength to strength since exploding onto the scene in 2015. Having played sold out shows up and down the UK, Europe and now the U.S, Counterfeit. are no stranger to the live circuit with numerous festival appearances such as Reading & Leeds, Slam Dunk, Hurricane and Southside, and many more. Counterfeit. are currently holed up writing and recording the follow up to their debut album due in mid 2019....
Starbenders
Starbenders
Hailing from the ATL, Starbenders are the half way home for misunderstood misfits, fringers and glam punks. Front-woman, Kimi Shelter and her gang have concocted a perfect alchemic blend of androgynous rock and roll power with "stuck in your brain" pop melodies. Imagine David Bowie playing 7 minutes in heaven with Debbie Harry.

Shelter began working with producer, Nico Constantine (Lady Gaga , Program The Dead, Institution Records) in 2014 who encouraged her to start a band. Aaron Lecesne was the first call Shelter made. The duo were best of friends and had intense music crushes on each other. The genesis of Starbenders took form. Guitarist, Kriss Tokaji, entered the scene in early 2015 after the band witnessed him laying waste to a guitar at a shitty house party in the middle of no where. "We couldn't believe our ears and eyes! Our prayers had been answered!", beams Shelter. The dream line up crystallized in 2017 with the entrance of drummer, Emily Moon. "It was the final piece to the puzzle. The band was in the middle of a transition and I thought to check craigslist of all places when I came across Emily's ad." shared Lecesne. After responding to the band's cryptic email, Moon met up with them that same night. It was love at first sight.
