With their explosive stage show, their uncompromising confidence, and a sound described as “Journey meets Avenged Sevenfold”, Star City Meltdown from Johnson City, TN has been winning over audiences from Mississippi to Michigan. Produced by former Creed bassist ,Brett Hestla (Dark New Day, Framing Hanley, Tantric) , their sophomore full length album ‘Music=War’ reflects on the constant battle the band faced just to get label support, a solid release date, and for the album to get to their fans in the form and fashion in which it was meant to be heard. Star City Meltdown decided to “soldier up”, after putting so much effort into a project that has gotten rave reviews from rock radio insiders, and they finally worked out an independent release date for ‘Music=War’ on Oct. 30, 2012. The first single, “Here’s To Us!” is hitting rock radio nationwide on February 5th, 2013 and constant touring is on the agenda well into 2013.
Bursting on to the Rock scene with energy and conviction, Throwing Gravity is primed and ready to carve out their place among the best of the best. After releasing their brand new album “It’s Not The End” in December of 2011, the band has been winning over fans and garnering attention from industry professionals alike.

The guys have already had multiple accomplishments in their short career being featured on Kings of A&R, having a #1 song on iHeartRadio for 4 months, multiple placements with NHL, MLB, and TNA Wrestling with their song “Here We Go Again” and sharing the stage with 12 Stones, Chevelle, Red, My Darkest Days, Evans Blue, Safetysuit, Second Hand Serenade, Parachute, Ghosts Of August, Zach Myers of Shinedown, Chad Kroeger of Nickelback, and Evan Taubenfeld just to name a few.
