BOBAFLEX is known as one of the hardest working bands in the country. Renowned for their high energy, live shows and relentless touring the band was formed in 1998 by brothers Shaun and Marty McCoy. The brothers are known for their ancestral ties to the most infamous family feud in American history between the Hatfield and McCoy. The interest of the feud has spurred of late a mini-series, many documentaries and an upcoming modern day version series debuting this Fall.

BOBAFLEX released their 6th album CHARLATAN'S WEB on BFX RECORDS on September 10th. The long anticipated follow up to 2011's HELL IN MY HEART that featured the singles BURY ME WITH MY GUNS ON, CHEMICAL VALLEY and THE SOUND OF SILENCE. The first single off the album BAD MAN recently entered the charts at #38, their highest ranking for a single in their history.

The band consisting of brothers, Shaun (vocals, guitars) and Marty McCoy (vocals, guitars), Jerod Mankin (vocals, bass), Tommy Johnson (drums) and newly added David Tipple (guitars) will be bringing their tour from coast-to-coast in support of the new album and single, BAD MAN hitting the airwaves in July.

Their catalog is rounded out by PRIMITIVE EPIC (2003) on Eclipse Records; APOLOGIZE FOR NOTHING (2005) and TALES FROM DIRT TOWN (2007) on TvT Records and CHEMICAL VALLEY (2010) which they self-released. The band is not dreading on the past anymore as they embattled a troubled label, legal battles and just looking ahead to the future.

Just when you thought Southern rock was said and done, along comes Beitthemeans, swaggering out from a dark shed somewhere deep in the pines of Sylacauga, Alabama. The name is fitting for a power trio that is all about boot straps, whether it's pulling them up or using them to beat their way out of a smoldering genre that could benefit from a whipping or two. With swelling riffs, bluesy throwbacks
and a lead singer with a screech that must be part owl, BITM certainly cracks the whip on Southern rock.

Bassist Casey Wilson, drummer Nathan Kelley and singer/guitarist Josh Jones partnered with Birmingham's Ol Elegante studios and producer Lester Nuby for the band's latest effort, Head Held High.

It's a natural pairing, considering Nuby's roots in alternative Southern rock. He currently plays in a Birmingham-based band called Vulture Whale, was a founding member of the band Verbena and has worked extensively with folks like Amy Ray and Dave Grohl.

"They're Southern rock, no doubt, but with a hint of the occult," Nuby says. "And, lyrically it's completely truthful…singing songs about salvation and sin, about getting by in crazy, small-town Alabama."

It doesn't hurt either, that Jones' startling scream is a full-on invocation to the dirty ghosts of rock and roll's past, present and future. The band challenges all that has been and is to come of Southern rock and roll, making Head Held High a revival of sorts. Instead of resting on the laurels of the music royalty they admire: Son House, Led Zeppelin, The Allman Brothers, Soundgarden, Nirvana, BITM left inspiration at the shed door and emerged on their own time, only after capturing a hell-bent sound they could claim as their own. And that's what rebel punks should do.
Subject To Loss
Subject To Loss
Subject to Loss is a 5 piece modern rock band based out of Springfield Missouri: The band started in late 2009 as an acoustic two piece with Garrett and Kuan and as the sound progressed came the need to add percussion. After playing the local clubs as a 3 piece for a year the band added their fourth member Jesse to take over the guitar and shift Garrett to lead vocals. After signing to Tate Music, Justin was added as lead guitar and Dru was brought in on drums to solidify the hard hitting, raw sound that STL projects to push their message of determination, recovery and strength. Their debut release, "Take Another", dares the listener to get up, pick up the pieces, and try again; to push for what they need; to turn life's negative into their own positive.
