Co-produced by the band and Chris Sheldon (who has previously worked with Pixies, Radiohead & Foo Fighters, amongst others), 'Ancient Secrets' was recorded at Livingston Studios in North London, and will be available as a digital download plus a numbered, colored vinyl 10".

Inspired in part by Apocalyptic times, 'Ancient Secrets' includes five ripping tracks, with man's stuttering evolution at the core of the action; the featured songs include 'Mermaid's Revenge' (about our ill-fated attempts to conquer nature), for which a video has just been filmed, and 'Zero Friends' (society's slow death by social networking).

Arum Rae, formerly known as White Dress, is a modern day siren based in Brooklyn, by way of Austin, TX. Arum's music and her voice is here to inspire... it is honest at its core so that you can do with it what you please, with no regrets. Everything Arum has lived through and all of the songs that have been born from it, are not meant to impress. They are meant to lead. Her ability to transcend styles allows the music to complement country, resurrect the soul, feel the blues, and ruin then re-­invent rock, through her deeply rooted foundation as a singer--songwriter. Arum's name is derived from a water lily (Arum lily) in Latin. Growing up, her family moved often, so at every new school, she always found shelter in the music programs. At her third high school, her choir teacher heard her potential, and took Arum under his wing and helped secure her a scholarship to the Berklee College of Music. During her last semester in Boston she started writing original music, learning to play guitar to accompany herself so she wouldn't have to depend on anyone and find her own voice... artistically and literally, studying the vocal stylings of Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone.

After relocating to Brooklyn, Arum was introduced to producer Sanford Livingston, and the two hit it off immediately. They began recording together in August 2013 and are pleased to present their first EP, Warranted Queen. With a minimal use of instrumentation, combined with Sanford's heavy beats tailored around Arum's dynamic voice and lyrics, the EP is a brilliant fusion of their mutual influences. Arum has toured extensively over the past several years, opening up for, and sharing stages with legends like Willie Nelson, Rodriguez, BB King, Dan Auerbach, Gary Clark Jr., Peter Bjorn & John, and The Civil Wars, to name a few. She also co-wrote the song "If I Didn't Know Better" with John Paul White of The Civil Wars that eventually found its way to the season one theme song on the NBC television show Nashville, and charted as a hit single on iTunes and Billboard. With renewed energy and passion, Arum looks to 2014 and beyond to place her mark on the industry that has given her so much. A mark she hopes will embolden artists and singers like herself to pursue their passions without pause or regret or fear.

Sick of It All is an American hardcore punk band, formed in 1986 in Queens, New York. The band's current lineup consists of brothers Lou Koller on vocals and Pete Koller on lead guitar, Craig Setari on bass, and Armand Majidi on drums. Sick of It All has been a major part of the New York hardcore scene.

Negative Approach is an American hardcore punk band, formed in Detroit, Michigan in 1981. The band is considered among the pioneers of hardcore punk, particularly in the Midwest region. Like most hardcore bands, Negative Approach was little known in its day outside of its hometown. It is now idolized in the Detroit rock underground and the punk subculture, considered to be one of the elite bands of the "old school" era, and continues to be influential. Negative Approach initially broke up in 1984 with singer John Brannon moving on to the Laughing Hyenas, and later Easy Action, but the band has reformed as of 2006 and continues to tour sporadically.

After a series of three LPs which alternated between mind's eye-gouging psychedelic excess and pine-scented woodshedding of pop tunes, here comes the logical endpoint between both: Lounge Lizards, six songs that stick around like sedan carpet matted with spilled Pepsi and Pat's wrappers, a hard drill that penetrates historical musical hits, like the Cars through Dinosaur Jr through Monoshock and into the cold, acrid air of present times.

Mr. Gnome
Young Tongue
Brother Gruesome

Forging beauty out of chaos with their explosive fusing of widescreen concepts and surreal psychedelia since their inception, singer/guitarist Nicole Barille, and drummer/pianist Sam Meister return with the duo hitting an undeniably new energetic peak. Layered vocals, searing guitars, and driving rhythms transport the listener into another world -- or, quite literally into The Heart of a Dark Star or the "belly of the beast" as they say -- which comes in and out of focus but never loses its cinematic eye. In other words, Mr. Gnome is still very much operating in their conceptual wheelhouse, but this time their approach is leaner and the gut punches are swift.
