About Capital North:
Capital North is a progressive hard rock outfit from Pasadena, CA, formed in 2016 by Jonathan Farrar on guitar and Anthony Zichella on vocals. After the disbanding of their previous projects, and through missions of self-exploration, the duo came together to form a band that would best showcase who they are as musicians and complex artists.

While traveling in Iceland, Farrar visited a unique and beautiful town called Akureyri, better known as the ‘Capital of the North.’ Leaving a lasting impression on him, he realized it accurately described the duo’s current state of emotions as they strive to get back to what is important with “capital” being an integral place or feeling while “north” describes the direction in which to get there.

Rounding out the group with Andrew “Broski” Rivas on drums, Capital North has created a sound that focuses on connecting with listeners through relatable lyrical themes and honest melodies.

Recorded at The Pie Studios in Pasadena, the band’s debut EP, Sea To Sky, was engineered by Nels Jensen (Sigur Rós, Jamie Foxx) with tracking by Devyn June, and mixed/mastered by Bertrand and Eric Poncet (of Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!) at Alias Studio. Sea To Sky engages the listener through a cohesive journey of life experiences including struggles with health, relationships, life, and death. Their live show completes this story with an immersive multimedia experience and dynamic stage presence.

With the release of Sea To Sky, Capital North looks excitedly toward the future and the potential of making a monumental impact in the music scene.

About The Great Heights Band:
TGHB released their 2nd LP entitled "rad-pop." via CI Records on April 20, 2018. A complete DIY effort, recorded and produced by the band at guitarist/singer Eric Taft's Buzzlounge Recording Studio, the album is an instant classic, receiving critical acclaim, with no reviews below a 9.6, and many simply a 10 out of 10.

The album brings together a diverse mix of pop, punk, nerd, and indie rock, with nods to a retro aesthetic and good old fashioned rock and roll. After writing and demoing dozens of songs, the band fully recorded the best 18 before finalizing the album’s track listing at 11, with one bonus track each for CD and vinyl.

Throughout the album The Great Heights Band brings in a wide range of influences from the likes of Weezer, The Cure, Gorillaz, Radiohead, ELO, and beyond.The dual vocals of Neal Karkhanis and Taft work in tandem, offering listeners two distinct voices that equally have something to say. The album is sonically diverse and melodically experimental, though always grounded by solid rhythmic grooves provided by bassist Owen Brinser and drummer Paul Martinez. Lyrically, rad-pop. tackles common themes of love and heartbreak, as well as larger topics such as environmental activism and political uncertainty. rad-pop. is an album about growth, love, and finding happiness in a world struggling to find stability. It is fun and introspective, thoughtful, and tongue-in-cheek.

The band recently completed an east coast tour with Eternal Boy, selling out clubs in Baltimore, DC, and beyond including filling rooms through Brooklyn, Philadelphia, and more. The band has shared the stage with the likes of Hellogoodbye, Andrew WK, Vacationer, Unwritten Law, Fenix TX, Punchline, Metro Station, Never Shout Never, New Politics, and many more. Known for a polished and high energy live show, this show will not be one to miss.

About Eye the Realist:
Eye the Realist is a Black Melodic Post Punk group out of Long Beach, CA who came together from different musical projects from varying genres. Their variety of musical influences have given them a unique sound of their own, yet nostalgic to early 2000s emo alternative (Thrice, Armor for Sleep, Taking Back Sunday, Saosin, etc.).

The name Eye the Realist comes from seeing the world for how it really is, as opposed to how we'd like it to be in our minds or how we've been raised to see it. They believe in constantly developing change within yourself to stay real and true and they project that energy into Eye the Realist.

Formed by Josie Randle (Lead Vocals/Guitar) and Mark Matas (Drums/Badass) who were originally in a post-hardcore project together. After a short time they recruited Kris Beeks (Bass/Vocals) who was in various pop-punk groups and decided to pursue the EtR dream in full force.

The group has been on multiple DIY tours during its 5 years of existence, reaching the east coast and back. They have gained noteable exposure by playing SXSW and Launch Music Conference/ Festival.

After coming off the road from a full US tour, the band decided to lock themselves in their studio for the better part of almost 2 years. While each member was going through intense personal life experiences, the group came out with songs that expressed love, loss, depression, and much more. They then entered the studio once again with Jeff Sahyoun (The Audio Bakery) who produced their latest EP ‘Strains’ released April 6th 2018. From there they will continue touring in support of their album. The trio puts on a live show that most would call unexpected. Their high energy music along with epic harmonies and emotional delivery make for an unparalleled live experience.
