Sometimes things catch fire. Just ask Dark Avenue. Originally formed as a side project to the Dallas/Fort Worth heavyweight Pistol Whippin Ike, three of the members began writing alternate jams for fun – and the project instantly sparked a wildfire. In a short amount of time the band established a reputation in the DFW area, performed with acts like Pop Evil, Queensrÿche, Red Sun Rising, Bobaflex, 36 Crazyfists, and launched a successful crowdfunding campaign to finance their first recordings. With the release of their debut album "Illusions", Dark Avenue have bridged the gap between metal and hard rock – and Texan crowds have been drawn to their fulgent flame.

Current Location: Dallas, TX
Management: Curtain Call Records/ Gigi Ghibon-Elhenawy
Formed in 2014, Dark Avenue is comprised of guitarists Barry Lorberbaum and Andrew Lewthwaite, bassist Alan Sauls, drummer Jeff Hathcock and vocalist Mario Cadena. The band’s first recording was "Seasons Change", a five-song EP whose title track was the catalyst that ignited regional interest. It spurred a showcase during SXSW/Austin Music Week and a development deal with Breakout Artist Management, who fostered their growth and transcended them beyond the Dallas scene.

About Dark Avenue
“The scene in Dallas is super vibrant,” explains Lorberbaum. “But there wasn’t anyone bridging the gap between heavy bands and the lighter bands. The heavy music crowds stuck to their bands, and the alterative/hard rock fans stuck to theirs. You did not see any crossover fans. That gap is bridged with our music. The metal fans get their heavy, and the alt-rock fans get their more mainstream sound, and all get songs they can relate and sing along to.”
That middle ground between heavy and light is where the nexus of creativity lies for Illusions. In the center of a Killswitch Engage/Imagine Dragons Venn diagram, the first single “Outside” is colossal and robust, yet driven by dynamic and melodic vocals. Perhaps that’s why it’s been featured on several nationally televised MMA events. Then there’s the song "Una Vez Mas," the group’s first single in Spanish. Its overwhelming response prompted the band to track Spanish versions of their songs for a future deluxe release of Illusions. And let’s not forget the crowd favorite “Maybe Tomorrow.” It won Video of The Year at the 2016 Krave Music Awards and helped them take home the grand prize: Artist of The Year.
“I want people to leave listening to the album like they were right there with us,” says Cadena, “feeling what we were feeling, seeing what we were seeing, as if they were part of it.”

Afire is a melodic hard rock band hailing from Oulu, Finland.
The band was formed in 2016 when vocalist Suvi Hiltunen joined forces with long-term Oulu-based musicians: guitarist Antti Leiviskä (ex-Poisonblack, Brüssel Kaupallinen), guitarist Sami Kukkohovi (ex-Sentenced, KYPCK), bassist Harri Halonen and drummer Tarmo Kanerva (ex-Poisonblack).
So, if you’re into catchy choruses and groovy, solid rock music, Afire is a band you definitely need to check out!
The band´s debut album, “On the Road from Nowhere” released on November 16th by Concorde Music Company. The album was recorded in various locations during the winter of 2017-2018. The vocal tracks were produced and recorded by Jonas Olsson (Amorphis, Poisonblack) and the album was mixed by Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, Moonspell, Apocalyptica).
Songwriter Harri Halonen comments the album: "I´ve had a bunch of songs for quite a while, but for which I didn’t have an outlet, so we started Afire. With Suvi’s vocal lines and lyrics, the songs started molding into their current shape, and we finished them together. Lyrically the album is about leaving and departing. It’s not a theme album, but the lyrics do revolve around the subject anyhow."
Harri Halonen comments: "'Let Me Be The One' is one of the first songs I wrote with our singer Suvi Hiltunen for this band. It might not be the most evident choice as first single amongst the uptempo rock songs on the album, but it does represent well the moodier side of Afire, which is an essential part of what we have to offer."

All music is written, recorded and produced by Filip Lönnqvist at his home studio in the city of Kalmar.
Mixing and mastering is then done by Jan Lehmkämper at X-Fusion Music Production.
