THE ATOMIC BITCHWAX
(Aka TAB) is riff-centric power trio from New Jersey formed in 1993 now featuring two members of legendary space lords Monster Magnet – bassist/vocalist Chris Kosnik and drummer Bob Pantella – alongside shred-tastic gunslinger Finn Ryan. TAB play "balls-to-the-wall rock 'n' roll that smashes space rock and proto-metal into a towering celebration of the riff" and have perfected their unique style of NYC hard rock that High Times appropriately tabbed, "thunder-boogie." They have inspired hundreds of developing rock and metal bands, but no group of musicians has come close to matching their unique style of fun, frenetic and formidable rock and roll.
In 2015, they returned with gargantuan riffs and jaw-dropping psych sonics on their sixth full length LP "Gravitron". On this album, THE ATOMIC BITCHWAX's Rush-like riff mazes and carpal-tunnel-inducing riffs are on full display; every note bleeds with urgency. There's far too much exuberant energy on the record to lazily tag this as "Stoner Rock"; this is high-octane, '70s-based hard rock infused with stabs of psychedelia and landslides of Tommy Bolin-inspired guitar heroics! "Gravitron" is an A-level masterclass in bad ass Rock and Roll and cemented TAB as an undeniable force in today's heavy music landscape.
In the winter of 2017, THE ATOMIC BITCHWAX released their seventh full-length LP, "Force Field". Their high energy, scale-based guitar mangling hits astronomical levels, with full stack amps pushing out dangerous levels of blown-out metallic mayhem, rocketing the trio into the outer reaches of the modern-day heavy music universe!

Supersonic intergalactic heavy rock trio MOTHERSHIP based out of Dallas, Texas give a real sense of hope that all is well in the universe, and that pure honest rock and roll has once again returned to this planet on a mission to unite true believers. These guys have created a unique sound that satisfies like a steaming hot stew of UFO and Iron Maiden, blended with the southern swagger of Molly Hatchet and ZZ Top, paired with a deadly chalice of Black Sabbath.
MOTHERSHIP’s goal from the beginning has been to carry on the tradition of the classic rock style of the ’70′s, updated and amped up for the modern day. The band has been non-stop road warriors since the release of their debut album in February 2013 on Ripple Music successfully invading the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Europe playing either on festival stages, night clubs, or outdoors under the sun at motorcycle parties. This heavy rock juggernaut has only just begun their tear across the universal cosmos and have no plans of ever slowing down.
They released their latest album 'High Strangeness' in March 2017 via Ripple Music & Heavy Psych Records, and toured Europe for a month in June!

is a rock band from Los Angeles, CA. They tend to sip on influences from 70's metal, rock, and psychedelia. Their songwriting approach is clear-cut; keep the focus on the hook. The band was born in Philadelphia in 2000 and moved to Los Angeles in 2001 after Keith Gibbs (guitar, vox) joined up with Detroit natives Rick Ferrante (drums) and Clayton Charles (bass). Upon Clayton’s departure in 2007, the guys recruited Chicagoan Jason Casanova (Behold! The Monolith, Tummler) to join the fold. We arrive at 2017 and Dr. Craig Riggs (Roadsaw, Kind, Antler) is now shellacking the kit when he's not brewing coffee or watching the Red Sox.
The band’s music has been featured on a variety of movies, television shows, and video games including the reissue of Clerks, FX’s original hit series Sons of Anarchy, A&E's Dog The Bounty Hunter, Jersey Girl, CW’s The Supernatural, and MTV’s Viva La Bam, Bam’s Unholy Union, and Rob and Big, NHL 2005, American Chopper, and Monster Garage. After shaking some walls with not one, but two, closely packed studio albums (the self-titled debut and "II") in 2004 and ’06, the power trio went subterranean until 2010 before resurfacing with a new lineup and propulsive third opus, "III", followed up by the straight-ahead rocker, "IV", in 2013.
The band’s latest album, Maneuvers, was released on June 20th, 2017 and features the work of new basher, Craig Riggs, behind the kit. This is the band's most concise work to-date. Extended jams were stripped down to the meat and potatoes. Short and sweet is the path looking forward. Andrew Schneider (NYC) returns behind the boards this round. You may recognize the name as he also provided the mixes on "II". What fans hear is arguably the gents most mature and inspired song-set released, chunked with both heartwarmingly familiar moments – but all of it heavy on the heavy, as they say…always. Unprecedented attention was also devoted to spinning new yarns out of those evergreen rock and roll stories about love lost, hate found, relationships built and lives trashed, homes wrecked, etc.
