Can you believe we’re readying our SEVENTH installment of our TuneCore Live event series? Well you better, because it’s going down this Wednesday, June 24th, and it’s gonna be a banger! With a little help from Swisher Sweets, (whose Swisher Artist Project is really taking off!), DropKloud, and new addition to the fun, CeleBuzz, we’ll be packing in Bardot Hollywood with fans, friends and TuneCore Artists for a night of fun and music!
Sharing the stage this month are TuneCore Artists FMLYBND, The New Regime, and Drop City Yacht Club, with special DJ sets in between. If you’re in the LA-area and you haven’t joined us yet, this is an awesome opportunity to come out, rub elbows with TuneCore’s West Coast team, and support your fellow TuneCore Artists! Learn a little more about the bands and sample some music after the jump.
The New Regime
Ilan Rubin has been around: he toured and played multiple instruments for Nine Inch Nails, filled in drumming for Paramore as they completed their self-titled album, and worked closely with Tom DeLonge to play an integral role in Angels & Airwaves’ latest album The Dream Walker (via TuneCore). Boasting songwriter influences from Led Zeppelin and Queen while incorporating layered instrumentation for an alternative-meets-electronic sound, The New Regime released its latest, Exhibit B (via TuneCore) in February of this year.
“To me being independent means being in complete control of executing your vision. TuneCore has allowed me to take my music and put it out into the world without having to deal with any obstacles.”
We’re proud to say Santa Barbara-based four piece FMLYBND has been using TuneCore to distribute their releases for the past couple of years. It’s been great watching them make people dance since their 2013 online hit ‘Electricity‘ as they continue their goal of “reshaping electronic music with their grunge influences”. Below, you can watch FMLYBND crush the first installment of our Convenience Store Sessions from, you guessed it, the aisles of a random convenience store!
Drop City Yacht Club
California is a big state, and Drop City Yacht Club proves there’s hip hop talent oozing out of every region. Hailing from the northern and southern parts of Cali, MC/producer/songwriter duo Kristo and THX aren’t shy about expressing pride for their home state. Combined with influences ranging from hip hop like Outkast and the Beastie Boys as well as classic rock icons like the Beatles and Pink Floyd, the duo managed to break onto the scene with a hit single “Crickets (ft. Jeremih)” and show no signs of stopping! Splitting up all creative duties, we’re excited to watch the boys of Drop City Yacht Club share their beats and rhymes on stage.
“To us, being independent means being brave. You have to be somewhat fearless to chase a dream. Especially if you’re chasing that dream on your own.“
