—Calling All Captains:
Originating from small towns outside of Edmonton, Alberta, pop punk/post-hardcore band Calling All Captains, consisting of Luc Gauthier (vocals), Brad Bremner (guitar/vocals), Connor Dawkins (guitar/vocals), Nick Malychuk (bass), and Tim Wilson (drums), is eager to finally share their new album, “Slowly Getting Better”, with the world.
Calling All Captains’ unique sound allows them to dip their toes in both the pop punk and post-hardcore realms using poppy instrumental elements with a punk-like, aggressive vocal style. After their initial plans were halted in 2020 due to the ongoing pandemic, the band was able to work with producer Quinn Cyrankiewicz, who also worked on their debut EP, “Nothing Grows Here”, to help produce and record “Slowly Getting Better”.
With their first full length album being released in the fall of 2021 via Equal Vision Records (USA), New Damage Records (CAN), and Rude Records (UK/EU), and opening for the likes of the Offspring, Silverstein, Our Lady Peace, and more, the band hopes to get back on the road asap and continue growing their fanbase and building their brand.
When opportunity knocks, Philly natives Goalkeeper are the ones answering the door. Ryan Beebe (Singer/Bassist), Marc Juliano (Guitarist), and Cody Ritchie (Drummer), came together at a critical point to create the perfect storm of melodic hooks & hard hitting pure pop punk. Finding inspiration in the expanding genre , Goalkeeper wants to prove there’s still new sounds to be heard, and focuses on tight, driving song writing. Their music emphasizes a refined, fervent sound influenced by early pop punk front runners, with lyrics that are fixated on introspective growth. Goalkeeper has supported such bands such as State Champs, The Starting Line, Hit The Lights, Real Friends, Can’t Swim, With Confidence, and more. With their new EP “Life in Slow Motion” out on September 25th, 2020, produced by Kevin Mahoney of Hit The Lights/Joywave, Engineered by Will Pugh of Cartel, and mixed & mastered by Seb Barlow of Neck Deep, Goalkeeper is striving to become one of the greats in the pop punk genre.
