FREEDOM HAWK + ELECTRIC CHILDREN + SALEM'S BEND
Freedom Hawk (Ripple Music) has toured nationally and internationally since 2008 playing popular festivals such as SXSW, Maryland Doom Fest, Doomed and Stoned, and European Desertfests, Roadburn and Freak Valley.. The band has had songs placed on television shows by CBS and MTV.
Electric Children Children have expanded beyond their early punk influences into a more mesmerizing swirl of psychedelia and garage-rock fuzz which has taken on even greater power with the addition of Blasters drummer Bill Bateman.
Salem’s Bend is a Los Angeles-based heavy rock trio with musical influences that run the gamut from '70s classic rockers to modern heavy-hitters in the desert, doom, psych and stoner rock scenes. Having cut their teeth in different bands around LA for several years, they self-released their debut album on Bandcamp in the tail-end of December 2015. The album garnered some early praise at heavy music blogs, with one reviewer commenting, "You want dynamics? Salem’s Bend is practically a liquid. 'Dynamics' is just a buzz word until it’s wielded by these sprightly upstarts." The album caught the ear of Ripple Music, who signed them and re-released their debut record worldwide in October 2016.
Salem's Bend has been tearing up the local rock scene in Southern California since their inaugural West Coast tour in June 2016 and hasn't slowed down yet. They've shredded the road for over 36,000 miles with tour stints and festival appearances around the Western US and Southwest every few months, including a sold-out SXSW showcase in 2018, a European tour and sold out show at Desertfest London 2019, and other festivals such as More Beers in Hell and Vantopia in Alberta, Canada, to name a few. Their sophomore album was released by Ripple Music on May 24th 2019 and garnered solid praise from the heavy rock blogs, selling out by December 2019. This year is shaping up to be another big year for the band, with festival appearances lined up for Psycho Smokeout 2020 and Planet Mammoth 2020 so far, and more tours and festivals coming soon! Cruise by a live show or your favorite streaming platform to see what all the buzz is about!
