Five Of The Eyes
A blistering assault of melody and energy from Portland, Maine. Having received such high praise as being called “The Mars Volta fronted by Jeff Buckley”, the band pays homage to the past while seeking to forge their own path. Blending elements of Funk, Rock, and Metal into one nimble, flying sonic behemoth, Five of the Eyes delivers their powerful sound with grace and precision.
Five of the Eyes has self-released two EPs and had the pleasure of touring the Eastern US opening for such acts as Rival Sons, Chon, The Contortionist, Auras, Intronaut, Moon Tooth, and Entheos. They are currently writing their first full length album, set to release summer 2017.
Power trio momentus rock. That’s probably the easiest way to pin down who and what Long Time are. One part tumbling Led Zepplin rock, quarter part Band Of Gypsies, another part Jeff Buckley croon, “we want this whole thing to be a ride,” lead singer Cadrin says, “taking you from where ever you are when you come through the front door and bringing you along with us to someplace else.” With a boisterous stage presence stitching together realized songwriting, audiences leave wanting more of something they’re not quite sure what they’ve had.
Mirth is a 3-piece indie rock band based out of Portland, ME. Synthesizing elements from their favorite bands, Mirth crafts songs which evoke nostalgia, introspection, bodily movement, and other emotions not far removed from their namesake. The trio consists of frontman John Zebley, who has played in several local acts such as Arms Against A Sea and Man, The Reformer, drummer John Troegner, Nice Places alumni, as well as Brendan Butler coming from the jam bad Thingamajig bringing his bass chops with him. Prior to their debut performance at Empire, Mirth is releasing a first wave of songs on their self-titled debut October 5th, 2016.
“Black River Union reminds me of some of my favorite bands from the dawn of alt-rock, when competent, smart rock musicians re-discovered that they didn't have to conform to the standards set to relegating them to one demographic and marketing to just a fraction of the listening population. Black River Union has taken this challenge by the reins, and in the memory of so many bands past and present, has combined alternative rock and pop sound with contemporary metal and hard rock, lightened with lilting piano lines and awesome vocal work.” - ThirdHalfMusic.com
