Guttermouth is a punk rock band formed in Huntington Beach, CA. Guttermouth
has released nine full-length studio albums and two live albums and have toured
extensively, including performances on the Vans Warped Tour. The band is
infamous for their outrageous lyrics and behavior, which are deliberately explicit,
offensive and intended to shock, though usually in a humorous and sarcastic
manner. This behavior has sometimes resulted in high-profile problems for the
band, such as being banned from performing in Canada for eighteen months and
leaving the 2004 Warped Tour amidst controversy over their political views and
attitudes towards other performers. In a time where bands take "breaks" in order to
have reunion tours along with all types of marketing gimmicks, Guttermouth
continues to tour much of the year with no plans on stopping and has proven to be
one of the hardest working punk bands still together. In July 2016, the band
released the EP "Got It Made" under Rude Records/Bird Attack Records and will
have another studio release out by the end of the year.

Koffin Kats
Koffin Kats
It’s been over 14 years since Vic, Tommy, & E-Ball started The Koffin Kats in
their parent’s basements and played for beer in local Detroit bars. A
psychobilly/punk band with influences ranging from The Damned to The Stray Cats,
The Koffin Kats have covered a lot of ground. Nine albums later, a few member
changes, and over 2,000 live shows from international tours… the founding lineup
returned in 2016.
Six years after his departure, Tommy Koffin returned to playing guitar with
The Koffin Kats. With Vic Victor on lead vocals and upright bass, and E Ball Walls on
drums. The trio has released a new album called “Party Time In The End Times.”
They will be touring North America and Europe throughout 2017.
You can keep up with Koffin Kats on all of the social media outlets. The band
likes to keep it “old school” and suggests you check out their website at for all official information on news and tours.
Gallows Bound
Gallows Bound
Being raised in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains and stemming from three chord punk rock provides for a unique twist on
traditional instruments. With their first album "Empty Flask, Empty Heart", the songs are described as an "aggressive yet
melodic collection" ranging from fast and punchy tales of rambling and love, to dark and soulful songs birthed from whiskey
and regret.
"Their live set is performed as impeccably as their studio set, and you really can feel how much energy, love, and emotion is
poured not only into their writing, but into their performance."
The Atom Age
The Atom Age
The Atom Age find their inspiration from the dust covered collections of unhinged 60’s Punk and
R&B, whose crazed energy was once misconceived as a better fit for your trashcan than for your
turntable. While taking many of their cues from these primitive pilgrims of punk, The Atom Age
still strive to lay down their own modernized sound.
Coming together in 2009 in Oakland, CA The Atom Age immediately hit the road. Touring heavily
enabled the band to develop their powerful live show and unique style. After making some noise
in the Bay Area’s scene Asian Man Records offered to release the band's second full length in
2012. During a break from touring early in 2014, the members felt it was time to radically refine
and hone their sound in preparation for their third full length. A year of writing and recording
commenced with the inclusion of a sixth member on 60’s Combo Organ.
The new full length “Hot Shame” blends the Rock ‘N’ Roll swagger of Link Wray with the angular
punk of Fugazi and Hot Snakes. A haunting tenor saxophone and transistor organ combo provide
an added layer of tone ranging from The Stooges' Funhouse at their darkest, to The Famous
Flames at their most energetic. Co Producer Blag Dahlia from legendary garage punkers The
Dwarves lent his greasy ears and formidable Rock ‘N’ Roll knowledge to the band while they
tracked the record themselves at their studio; District Recording.
