Powerman 5000
Powerman 5000
The original incarnation of POWERMAN 5000 took shape in Boston Massachusetts, where the group racked up a multitude of local gigs and produced two independent CD releases, 1994's True Force and 95's The Blood Splat Rating System. An unrivaled work ethic and growing legion of fans helped secure the band's dominance in the Boston rock scene, as well as creating a must-have commodity for many major labels.

1997 was a big year for Spider and company; it saw them sign with DreamWorks Records, relocate to Los Angeles and release their major label debut, Mega!! Kung Fu Radio. A year of touring with the likes of Marilyn Manson, Korn and Ozzfest followed, giving them national exposure and further strengthening the bands fan base. Their follow up, 1999's Tonight The Stars Revolt!, featuring the hits "When Worlds Collide" and "Nobody's Real" went on to sell more than a million copies . "Tonight The Stars Revolt! changed everything." Spider recalls. "Suddenly we went from being this weird little underground band to having our faces on MTV and our songs played nationwide."

On April 7, 2009, Powerman 5000 released a blog on their MySpace page stating that Anyone For Doomsday? has officially been re-released. The legal battle ended and the album was released under the SKG Music License. The album is available on iTunes as a digital download. On April 21st, the band released "V is for Vampire", the second single from their upcoming album, which is planned for a summer release.
Orgy
Orgy
ORGY emerged in the Goth music scene in 1998 with their incredible remake of 'Blue Monday'. The track sold over 1 million copies and built a worldwide audience for the brand. In 2004, the band went on a hiatus. In 2011, after seven years of demand from fans for new music and a tour, founding member Jay Gordon (vocals) decided it was time to kick things back up and begin recording and touring again in support of ORGY's fans.
Born in San Francisco, CA, Jay Gordon and was heavily influenced by music from a young age. After playing bass for several years and working as a producer and engineer on several albums (including Coal Chamber's self-titled album and others), Jay was introduced to four other musicians who, with him, would eventually form ORGY. After establishing themselves in the scene, the band was noticed by Korn vocalist Jonathan Davis and signed to Elementree/Reprise records.
1998-2000
Orgy's primary release, 1998's Candyass, turned out to be a vast success, mainly fueled by the band's wildly-popular cover of 'Blue Monday' and their initial single, 'Stitches'. Each single saw several remixes, some of which were produced by Jay Gordon himself (a trend fans came to expect with ORGY's following single releases). In 2000, ORGY unleashed their second complete album, Vapor Transmission, with 'Fiction (Dreams in Digital)' and 'Opticon' chosen as the singles.
2000-2004
After the release of Vapor Transmission, ORGY left Elementree/Reprise under cordial circumstances.
In 2002, Jay Gordon presented the song 'Slept So Long' for the Queen of the Damned movie soundtrack. Jay Gordon and ORGY appeared on additional movie soundtracks including Scream 3, Not Another Teen Age Movie and Zoolander, the latter featuring the previously unreleased song 'Faces'.
In 2003, Jay Gordon started his own independent record label, D1 Music, and released the band's third album, Punk Static Paranoia, in 2004. Shortly after its release, ORGY announced an indefinite hiatus.
Mid-hiatus, Jay Gordon kept busy with producing, engineering, composing and mixing music, adding to his already substantial list of credits (including Coal Chamber, Crazy Town, Linkin Park, and more). He also leant his voice to various characters for the computer game 'Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines'.
2011-NOW
After deciding to reform the band due to the demands of rabid ORGY fans, Jay found himself with the task of finding new members due to past members being busy with other projects.
First, Jay selected North Carolina native and guitarist Carlton Bost to join the ranks of ORGY. Carlton is known for his previous synth guitar work in art-rock band Deadsy, as well as for being the current guitar player for classic synth band Berlin. Other bands Carlton has been a member of, or played for, include The Dreaming, Lunarclick, 16 Volt, Tim Skold, and his own solo project Shades of Scar. Additionally, he works as a producer, writer, and re-mixer for various other artists.
This connection naturally lead Jay to current ORGY guitarist and keyboardist Ashburn Miller, who, like Jay, can root his musical career to recording and production. After relocating to Los Angeles after high school, Ashburn joined Deadsy with Carlton. After spending years touring with bands like Korn, The Deftones, and on large festival tours like The Family Values Tour, Ashburn decided it was time to refocus his efforts back into studio production. In 2012, after hiding away in the studio for a few years, ORGY came along as the right project to devote his energy to.
ORGY Bassist, studio musician and live session performer Nic Speck came to Los Angeles via upstate New York and Miami, FL. Nic has played with a number of Los Angeles artists including George Lynch, Run Run Run and Tranzk.
Multi-instrumentalist and ORGY drummer Jamie Miller is best known as drummer and/or guitarist for a slew of successful recording artists including Souls at Zero, theSTART, Snot, and ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead. He has also been credited as producer, engineer, remixer, songwriter, programmer and session musician for various projects including theSTART, Night Horse, The Birthday Massacre and many more.
With these new members joining and combining their respective resumes to build a new and improved band, ORGY was transformed and set to reestablish themselves in the hard rock and metal scene.
The band's new website, www.orgymusic.com was launched in mid-2012 in conjunction with the release of their first single in seven years, 'Grime of the Century', which is available for streaming now at www.grimeofthecentury.com. The single was released on Jay's indie label, D1 Music. In late 2012, the band ventured out on the "Bad Blood" Tour. In early 2013, the band announced a full North American headline run with support from Vampires Everywhere and Davey Suicide. The band continues to work on music for an upcoming full-length.
Make no mistake about it, the ORGY brand is not going away anytime soon. As long as the fans demand new music and tours, the band is ready, willing and able to fill their request.
Death Valley High
Death Valley High
Death Valley High kicks off another rebirth with 2013's POSITIVE EUTH. The band came together in 2010 and introduced the world to their deadly undead rock with their debut album. They hit the road for two national tours and dropped the acclaimed 2011's Doom, In Full Bloom. They scored an Independent Music Award in the category of "Best Rock Song" for "Multiply". In 2012 Band members Reyka Osburn, Adam Bannister, Chris Sanders, and Huffy Hafera retreated to Fantasy Studios to begin work on POSITIVE EUTH. The album, engineered by Jesse Hart Nichols [The Stooges, Ty Segal] and mixed by Eric Stenman [Thrice, Deftones], sees their signature style expand into even deadlier and more dynamic territory. -Rick Florino
Knee High Fox
Knee High Fox is a band based out of Los Angeles CA. It is fronted by songwriter Christine Connolly. Tuesdai Murgia is on drums and Simon Nagel on bass. The band is known for their alternative tongue and cheek style, and you never quite know what will happen at a live show or in any video they release. The band is currently in the studio recording their debut album with heavy weight producer Howard Benson due out mid 2013. They are making quite a statement with their debut single and music video 'Black Widow'. Not suitable for prudes, or the weak stomached, or children unless they're really cool children....;)......Black Widow will be debuting to the world in mid february and as Christine says 'It might be kinda fun, if I drink your blood'... Look out for them on tour in your city, or under your bed.....

Interfate
Fates intertwine…

As fate would have it, four high school friends united to form what became Interfate. Since then Interfate has evolved, bringing in new members each with different musical histories, leading to an intuitive take on the rock scene of today. Interfate is an ensemble influenced by the ragged yet melodic sounds of 90’s grunge along with the polish of early 2000’s Nü Metal. Their dynamic live performances have been honed on the Arizona circuit along with tours across the southwest. Interfate is privileged to have shared the stage with acts such as Nonpoint, Puddle of Mudd, Wayne Static, In This Moment, Taproot, Otep, Tantric, Fuel, Smile Empty Soul and The Ataris. Their EP “Shedding Skin”, engineered and produced by Jeremy Parker (Evanescence, Godsmack, Disturbed, Mudvayne) and Mike Oliver, was released December 2014. A single, "Tremble", was released January 2016.
