With a dynamic, original sound founded upon an explosive stage show, Black Heart Saints surrounds audiences with unapologetic, aggressive rock that begs to be experienced live. After debuting at SXSW in 2014, this powerhouse quartet has been building a solid reputation as a support act for national touring bands such as Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, Sevendust, Nonpoint, Coheed and Cambria, Filter, POD, Tantric, Everclear, Pop Evil, Alien Ant Farm, and more.

The soaring vocals of front-man Josh Ross have drawn comparisons to Myles Kennedy and Chris Cornell. While the band is influenced by the likes of Mötley Crüe, Guns ‘N Roses, and other legendary Hard Rock acts, the commanding presence of Black Heart Saints’ live show brandishes an updated take on the genre.

Quickly conquering some of the biggest stages and festivals in the United States, Black Heart Saints has built an impressive resume, and has been recognized as one of the nation’s top emerging rock acts:
– Austin Chronicle Music Awards: Top 10 Best New Bands
– Austin Music Foundation Artist of the Month, March 2017
– San Antonio’s Fiesta Oyster Bake Headliner
– SXSW Performer
– Texas Rockfest 2015 & 2016 Performer
– Buffalo Trace Battle of the Bands Grand Prize Winner
– ESPN X Games Austin Performer

In 2014, Black Heart Saints represented their hometown at the ESPN X Games in Austin, and performed along with several national headliners such as Kanye West, The Flaming Lips, Gary Clark, Jr., and more. Last year wrapped up with several completed regional tours, which have firmly established the band as a premier force in new music.

The band’s first release – “Black Heart Saints EP” – is currently getting radio play on several FM stations throughout Texas and the West Coast, and has received overwhelmingly positive reviews by some of the most prominent rock critics and bloggers, which has boosted demand for the band’s live appearances tremendously. Currently topping online music store sales charts, the EP has also enjoyed success at select retailers such as Austin’s own beloved Waterloo Records.

2015 kicked off with key performances during SXSW 2015, Texas Rockfest, and Fiesta Oyster Bake in San Antonio. The band also went back to the studio to record a string of upcoming singles produced by Omar Vallejo at Austin’s renowned 512 Studios.

After debuting their first official music video for the hit single “Touch The Sky” on MTV, VEVO, and YouTube, Black Heart Saints is poised to launch a memorable international career with ambitions to dominate stages across the globe. Half-way through 2016, the band gained nationwide airplay on Sirius XM’s Octane and Faction channels. Released in September 2016, the single “Gasoline” features an accompanying music video produced by acclaimed director Taylor Fredricks.

In 2017, the band received two major accolades: Black Heart Saints was chosen as Austin Music Foundation’s Artist of the Month, and received a spot in the top 10 Best New Bands in Austin Chronicle’s Austin Music Awards for 2016-2017.

Most recently, the band has been catapulted to the forefront of Texas hard rock after supporting POD, Skillet, Adelita’s Way, Ratt, and Puddle of Mudd on their Texas tour dates. An action-packed summer 2017 kicks off with the release of the full-length album entitled “ALIVE” as well as the “Road to Sturgis Tour 2017” will put Black Heart Saints’ charismatic live performance to the test when the band takes the stage at the world-renowned motorcycle rally, which is predicted to see be attended by over 500,000 bikers from all around the globe.

A Good Rogering-
Driven by the baser instincts of their ancestral caveman predecessors, A Good Rogering is a band that delivers a raw and powerful sound best described as eclectic heavy-rock. Their latest EP, "This Is Death Metal", is the band's strongest release to date paying homage to their metal roots and love of a solid groove. Currently on tour, AGR continues to captivate audiences across the country with their intense and engaging live shows.

Finite Fidelity-
Finite Fidelity is a progressive/alternative rock and roll band hailing from Austin, TX. Our music has been described as "SuperHeavyGroovyAssSludgyShit". Our music basically spans the many genres and sub-genres of rock while adding a dash, if you will, of progressive sound to the mix. We like to blend the rock and roll style you know and love with some prog elements, therefore making our music interesting to the the music nerds and the non-music nerds.

The band was birthed in mid 2015 by Scott Blanco (guitar/vox) and Ryan Monahan (drums), who became best of friends in college at the University of Texas at Austin School of Music and had been jamming with one another for a couple years prior to the band's birthing. A few gigs were played before we both realized, "man, we'd sound a lot better with a bassist and another guitarist," so that's just what they set out to find. Scott conveniently holds an occupation at a local Austin guitar shop, where he met and recruited the next two members of the band, Tim Moen (bass) and Skylar Molina (guitar). With all the pieces in place, the band has quickly gelled and churned out tune after tune. Now with all their powers combined, they've set out on a journey to rock the world. Really, we just want to share our brand of music, have fun doing it, and make people happy. If you are doing it for the money and not the music, you're doing it wrong.

Sadly, Skylar left the band in early summer of 2016 due to an unfortunate smelting accident. Jk, he's fine. The split was very amicable and his reasoning for doing so was quite sound. Were all still good bros. Sad to see him go, but we know he'll go on to kick ass in life. Guy can cut a mean head of hair by the way. We just hope that someday, he'll grow a beard.

Fortunately and quite miraculously, it did not take long to find a new guitar demigod. Tim's good buddy, who goes by the name, Ian C.G., has accepted the task of melting people's faces with us. He's been to many of our shows and is a big fan of ours, so we're very thrilled to have him. Also he, like Tim, moved down to Austin from Madison, Wisconsin, so I gotta tell ya, it is great having two Wisconsin accented blokes in the band. We're currently in the process of imbuing our songs into Ian's mind palace, so you should see him at one of our upcoming shows very soon!
