The bands, “This record is the result of the past two years on the road. We’ve grown from the days as a group of guys in a shabby construction van playing at a local bar, to this moment now where we are so proud to release this album with Standby Records. We couldn’t be more excited to make the next big step in our careers.”

Catch SINK IN on tour with Foreveratlast this fall. See dates below.

With a perfectly energetic blend of soaring melodies and driving rhythms, SINK IN is the definition of the DIY underground band turned pop/rock powerhouse.

SINK IN kicked off in 2015 by recording their debut EP entitled “Wide Eyes”. Upon a great reception to the EP, the band embarked on a full US touring schedule, sharing the stage with artists such as: Relient K, Skillet, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Emery, Icon For Hire, and many more!

In 2016, the band released a single called “Castaway”, which amassed over half a million views on YouTube.

SINK IN entered the studio once again in the winter if 2016 to record their first full length album entitled “Ordinary People, Extraordinary Things”.

Perhaps the most notable aspect of SINK IN is their in-your-face, high energy live show. With their punk influenced upbeat attitude and angelic four part pop vocals, SINK IN demands every minute of attention and a vast array of emotions from their steadily growing audience.

Dallas-based trio Pseudo Future have a catchy blend of alternative rock and pop rock that’s delightful for the ears. Ahead of their tour, the band is sharing their new video for “Hello Stranger,” which is a peppy anthem that perfectly suits the band. Individual shots of the band are sliced in with them playing and rocking on a lonesome road.

‘Hello Stranger’ is a personal favorite of ours,” they say of the track. “Musically — it really highlights an array of stylistically different genres we’re influenced by and brings them full circle. Lyrically- it tells the story of how the actions of a complete stranger can impact you for the better, no matter how set in your ways you might’ve been, and how those actions can inspire you to do the same for someone else.

“Writing, recording and filming this song was easily one of the most fun experiences we’ve had for this album cycle. We’re definitely gonna be playing it every night on ’The Fight or Fall’ tour with Crunkasaurus Rex this October!

As they said, Pseudo Future will be hitting the road in a few weeks. Check out the tour dates below, and you can buy their new album, Time Slips Away, here.





I Fight Fail has announced plans to release their Standby Records debut “Voyages and Vantage Points” on October 7 .


The band is premiering a new song/video for “Are You Ok” today on New Noise Magazine. Stream here.

I Fight Fail is a space rock band from Canton, Ohio, delivering a patented combination of alternative guitar textures, electronica and pop/rock, reminiscent of 30 Seconds to Mars, Angels and Airwaves, Incubus and Blink 182. The four-piece lineup features Andy Potter on lead vocals and bass, Daryl Johnson on guitar and vocals, Anthony Carter on drums and Zach Negulis on guitar and vocals, and was formed in 2013 from the ashes of their previous band, Where Are You Houston. With an airy, hypnotic vibe, their sound is imminently danceable and trance-y, their musical chemistry immediately evident as soon as they hit the stage.

Collectively, they have shared stages with bands that include Go Radio, Hawthorne Heights, Breathe Carolina, Tonight Alive, E For Explosion, Red Sun Rising, Nothing More, Wilson and Just Surrender. They have been featured in Alternative Press Magazine as well as Substream Music Press, and are a favorite on local radio stations as well as Akron University’s ZTV Lowdown. Their debut EP, titled Move Me was released in 2014, and in 2015, the video for its single “Nothing Bleeds” was hand picked to be featured in 2500 Journeys stores across the United States.

Their latest single and video for the song “Are You Okay” was just released on Blank TV (watch it below), a popular YouTube station with over six hundred thousand subscribers. They have played Van’s Warped Tour, and after being invited to showcase at the Launch Music Conference in Lancaster, PA, are continuing on to headline their own tour of the East Coast and Midwest through 2016. Get to know I Fight Fail, and connect with them on their social channels for live show alerts, new music and more.

Upcoming Shows:
October 7 – Akron, OH at Musica
November 13 – Columbus, OH at Rumba Cafe

Leaders and Kings acoustic premier of  the band’s undeniably catchy track “Let It Go” which comes from their self-titled label debut, out now via Standby Records(grab it here)!

Leaders And Kings came together as recently as 2013 but that hasn’t stopped them from progressing very quickly. In no time at all, the guys were rehearsing and writing kick-ass music, not to mention getting their name out there as much as possible. Clearly it worked because Standby Records took notice and signed the band.

Of the signing the group noted: “We are so proud and excited to be a part of the Standby Records Family, we are looking forward to a magnificent 2016. We can’t wait for the fans reaction from our new album, our sound has evolved into something we are very proud of.”
