The Sacramento-based band features Jonny Craig (Dance Gavin Dance, Emarosa) and Alex Lyman (Hearts and Hands), two artists who've built a name and reputation for themselves in their respective projects, but are now branching out creatively with Slaves.

Slaves will release their debut album this summer via Artery, but the band has shared a 70-second teaser, which provides both an audio and visual keyhole look into the process and the project. It should tide fans over for now. The teaser can be watched below.

It's a birds-eye view of Slaves in the studio. Craig's unique, critically acclaimed voice, which is drenched with emotion and rich with soul, powers the clip and offers just the right taste of what's to come, all the while leaving you salivating for more.

"Men have been enslaving men for as along as we've had gods to hide behind," Craig said. "Every man is a slave to what we love — whether it be women, drugs, music or sports. Through art we are all equals."

Slaves will also embark on their first tour this May. More details regarding the trek will be announced soon.
Ghost Town
Ghost Town
Ghost Town is an audio and visual movement ahead of its time; catering to the young generation of today while keeping true to the underground scene they come from.

Huge drums (MannYtheDrummeR), funky guitar riffs (Alix Monster), unique vocals (Kevin Ghost), and futuristic electronics (Evan Pearce) are the main elements that give Ghost Town their sound, along with the artwork of Alistar Dippner, aka imamachinst, who uses Ghost Town's drop dead sounds as inspiration to bring each song to life with his shocking visuals.

The energy in their songs is evident in the recordings but is even more amplified in their live show. Armed with forward thinking and an army of 'Ghosts' they are striving to make history.
Personal revelations don't come easily. Once you do really know yourself though, anything is possible.

Shayley "Dayshell" Bourget realized he needed to make a big change in his life before he could truly be happy. In 2012, after three years and two seminal records playing and singing clean vocals for Southern California's Of Mice & Men, Shayley left the band to the shock of fans everywhere.

However, he emerged from that tumult stronger than ever. Receiving a call from old friend and drummer Raul Martinez, they decided to jam together. There were no rules. There were no "scene" restrictions. It was just going to be fun. Adding bassist Jordan Wooley to the fold, the trio tapped into something kinetic. Fusing together warm melodies, gnashing spacey guitars, and heavy rhythms, Dayshell came to life.

"I want to push boundaries," he goes on. "This is our own style. It might be heavy at the forefront, but there's beauty behind that. It encompasses all of my influences from Deftones and Led Zeppelin to Incubus and Enya. I like to call it 'Fresh Metal'."

Their first single "Share With Me" exudes that indefinable and inimitable energy. Dayshell recorded the track and released it online. It went viral among fans, and Sumerian Records reached out that same day. Now, it's the leadoff to the band's self-titled 2013 debut album for the label. For Shayley, it's especially personal.

"It pretty much tells my whole story," affirms the singer and guitarist. "I would wake up with anxiety, get paranoid, and start drinking in order to feel normal. On the chorus, I'm reaching out for a hand though. I want to become the person I was born to be. I want to be better at what I love to do. At the end of the day, it's a huge 'thank you' to the fans who have supported me and never gave up. I come out of the gate completely honest. Nobody can say anything because I say it all here."

That honest carries through the rest of the record as well, and it's speaks the loudest. Shayley holds nothing back, and that's why Dayshell is going to stick with listeners for a long time to come. He concludes, "I want people to keep an open mind and interpret this the way their heart wants to feel. There's more out there for all of us. If somebody gets inspired, that's incredible. I knew in my heart that this band was always going to happen. This was part of the plan I've had for my whole life."
