Eloquent Demons is the follow up to 2015's Anything That Moves.

The band was originally signed by Eclipse Records to release their first full length album Primitive Epic. the band went on to TvT Records where they released two albums in Apologize for Nothing (2005) and Tales From Dirt Town (2007). label went bankrupt in 2009.

The band decided to go the independent route and started their own label, BFX Records in 2010 in order to control their own destiny. They released an EP in 2010 called Chemical Valley. With the exception of a re-recorded version of 2007's Home, all the songs on the EP would become part of their full release in 2011 Hell In My Heart which featured 16 songs and their top selling single to date Bury Me With My Guns Onand their very popular cover of Sound Of Silence (Simon-Garfunkel). Hell In My Heart was followed in 2013 with Charlatans Web which included the single I'm Glad You're Dead their most successful song at radio in their history.

Having played all lower 48 states over the last 7 years, they have played 100+ shows every year including a record setting 154 in 2016.

Jacob Cade
Jacob Cade is an American singer, songwriter, musician, and multi-instrumentalist, best known as lead singer and guitarist of The Jacob Cade Project, a three piece band he formed in a mission to preserve the legacy of classic rock n roll. Heavily influenced from musical greats such as Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix, Slash, Ace Frehley, Billy Gibbons and Jerry Lee Lewis, Cade revives a lost art of masterful musicianship and the natural ability to entertain a crowd. With Jacobs electrifying guitar work and larger than life stage persona, live performances are a true show, leaving spectators wanting more. The sixteen year old is currently working on his second full length studio album set to be released this summer, June 30th, 2015.

The core philosophy that drives the 5-man team of DESPYRE is the combination of 2 emotions that forms the basis their name, despair & inspire. Its their effort to encourage, through driving, melodic, and hard hitting music those who have struggled or lost hope and have reached a point where life has lost its spark. They strive to re-ignite that fire. or as they define DESPYRE, To have once given up all hope, which in turn motivates or compels the passion to do something profound, prolific and exceptional.

DESPYRE was formed in 2015 and after catching the ear distinguished metal guitarist Joey Zampella of one of Brooklyns greatest exports, Life of Agony. They were invited straightway to his Nest studio in Merrick N.Y. to begin recording their debut EP, Irritation under the direct tutelage of Joey Z personally. In anticipation of their release, and by word of mouth alone, DESPYRE has been invited to open for band such as DevilDriver, Death Angel, Gemini Syndrome, 9 Electric, Drowning Pool, Loudness, Winds of Plague, The Agonist, All That Remains, and a host of other established acts. They have also answered the call for metal showcases promoted by Mr. Don Jamieson, of VH-1s That Metal Show, who has called them simply one of his favorite new bands. Dan Nelson of Anthrax/Wolf Pack Black/TRED fame has called them, hard hitting and unrelenting & a very welcome addition to the metal scene in NY, and in my opinion. worldwide in the very near future.

Marianne Toilet & The Runs
Where do I begin. Marianne Toilet and the Runs are a deliciously demented comedy rock group that employs a sense of humor that you would like to think weve all long since grown out of. Unfortunately for us moralizers, the juvenile and irreverent musings of these four crazed Bostonians are just as infectious and perennial as the great, well crafted rock beats and melodies that make up the music. Marianne Toilet and the Runs treats comedy music as all great satirists should treat their craft  as if its no joke.

The first song of theirs I listened to was called Tourettes. Before I even hit play, I wanted to be offended. Like, I really, really, REALLY wanted to be offended. I went in thinking Oh great, whats this gonna be about? Making fun of Tourettes syndrome? But to my virtuous dismay, I began tapping on my desk and swaying my head almost instantly to the insanely catchy slew of power-pop chords and classic rock drums. To make matters worse for my moral compass, I realized the songs target was not those with any disease, but rather people who were instantly offended by the concept without even listening to the song first.
With my sense of righteousness wounded, I felt it was incumbent upon me to further open my mind and really try to understand the aesthetic of this band. I think I finally figured them out upon listening to Lawnmowing which describes the gelding of a man with the gregarious chant I lost my balls in a lawn mowing accident (wait for it) I lost my balls in a lawn mowing accident.

Son of a bitch. This stupid song instantly became stuck in my head. The melody line was just too infectious  a beautiful, minor-key refrain of deep, soulful regret and loss. It was the type of musical strain reminiscence of an ole Irish shanty, where the patrons come down to ye olde local pub and sing and chant away their sorrow while drowning themselves in hops and suds. But wait, this was about a dudes balls. Being lost in a lawn mowing accident. And whats this? Im laughing and singing along??

And therein lies the true joy of Marianne Toilet and the Runs. Like all successful musical satirists  from Tom Lehrer to Weird Al Yankovic to Flight of the Concords  comedy acts are beholden perhaps more than any other genre to deliver big time in terms of the music. Marianne and her, uh, associates are incredibly gifted at crafting huge power-pop hooks, catchy melodies, and possess a truly wonderful knack of getting the most jaded fuddy-duddy to smile at the stupidest of punch lines. And that, my friend, is no joke.
