Lovedrug first drew national attention with the highly acclaimed Pretend You're Alive lp in 2004, the fastest selling debut in (then label) The Militia Group's history. The follow-up Everything Starts Where It Ends was also well received, selling 30k albums in several months on the back of Japanese and North American touring in 2007, and gaining traction at radio & MTV for Ghost By Your Side and Happy Apple Poison.
Though release of The Sucker Punch Show coincided with the financial collapse of the Militia Group in North America, the album garnered favorable attention upon release in Europe in June 2009, landing at #6 on the coveted Visions summer chart, and gaining broad radio play for the single Only One around club dates and festival appearances with Nine Inch Nails, Silversun Pickups, and others.
Following the European summer tour, Lovedrug committed to writing for all of 2010, pausing only to play SXSW and two headlining runs to test-drive the new material, releasing the fan-only EP-PART I+II+III trilogy along the way. In November, the band announced the I AM LOVEDRUG campaign in partnership with PledgeMusic to fund album #4 and, after reaching their goal over the holiday, Spring 2011 saw the band utilize producer Paul Moak's Nashville studio to track the entire new album live to 2" tape. Split-single Pink Champagne/Dinosaur debuted in Fall 2011, offering the first taste of the full-length titled Wild Blood, out March 6, 2012.
The Last Royals, a duo of writer/singer/producer Eric James and drummer Mason Ingram, are nascent, having only recently emerged from a joint project that brought the two musicians together in Spring 2010. The connection urged a new chapter in Eric's career as a musician, evolving him from a solo artist who played under the moniker The Early Hours to one-half of a self-proclaimed pop band. The Last Royals collect the discarded remnants of a day in the city and glue them back together to reveal a new picture, making music from the broken pieces. The songs are necessary responses to the difficulties life presents. The sound of the music is hopeful and bright, but the juxtaposition of words and sounds evoke a candid depth that accurately echoes our lives. In the end the conflation of all the pieces harkens back to the moment of its creation. The most beautiful moment of any song is the moment it was written and it's that instant that lingers in each note of The Last Royals' music.
Andy Zipf (pronounced ZIFF) has stretched well beyond feverous guitar playing and dug deeper into his coined intimate falsetto voice on his third full length, Jealous Hands. With well over 400 shows played in a little over four years, Zipf has held close to a play anywhere for anyone mentality performing at coffee shops, house shows, and the standard venues. From being a PurePick at Purevolume twice, to grabbing the attention of The Today Show, XM Satellite Radio, VH1 and MTV, to now having the song Stumble on the Line featured on the ABC show Private Practice. Zipf has shared the stage with artists like Cold War Kids, Jeremy Enigk, Badly Drawn Boy, Rosie Thomas and Dave Bazan.
