Dyne Side is a breath of fresh air for South Florida. As an alternative rock band, native to the city of Miami, their relevance on the music scene is relatively recent; but they’ve been laying the foundation since 2010, when Emmanuel Costa-Maya (vocals) joined Eddie Salcedo (guitar), Ariel Ramirez (bass), and Michael Hernandez (keys), to form the group that would send a charge ripping through the atmosphere in this town. Possessing versatility and diverse influences through melancholy vocals and melodies over lush ambience with groove and aggressive rhythms. They aim to reach the pinnacle of musical dynamics. Constantly pushing across the boundaries of genres without fear or limitations. They continue to experiment with open minds and open hearts across the musical spectrum.
When asked to describe themselves as a band, Emmanuel Costa- Maya says,“We are eclectic. Our sound is adaptive because we like so many different genres. We’re five guys with distinctive personalities that generate an unexpected sound that may be shocking, but in a good way.” But it is hard to make an impression as a band, when your leading man is on the front lines halfway around the world. Emmanuel had enlisted in the Air Force right before joining Dyne Side and was stationed in South Korea to begin his four year service. The physical distance between them as a band did not deter them from the collaborative goals they shared, it only further drove each member to work harder as motivation for one another. In the time they were apart, they managed to release their first album, Bite The IX, along with a music video for their single, Pound for Pound. They also managed to have a few live impactful performances at local venues like Tobacco Road, The Social Lubricant and Churchill’s Pub.
Dyne Side has been fortifying their talents with practice and patience during their vocalist’s time in the Air Force. His return this year, 2015, marks the beginning of the next leg in their journey - together. Steffen Banas also joined them this year, as their drummer offering a welcome shift in their dynamic with new influences. With unwavering dedication, they’ve overcome every obstacle that’s presented itself. It should be expected to see a lot more from Dyne Side now, than ever before. They are finally working on putting a literal face to the music they’ve worked so tirelessly to create." We are going to be a larger presence than ever before. The tension is thick and we will bare our souls at every live show -- we want to leave it all on the stage. That is what live art is about; and that is absolutely what Dyne Side is about.”, offers Eddie Salcedo.

Mesa, AZ based punk rock royalty AUTHORITY ZERO has managed to weather the music industry storm and endure living on the road away from friends and loved ones for almost 2 decades. With four studio albums under their belt, two live acoustic albums, and two EP’s, they appear to be just getting started. Over the past few years the band has broke ground internationally, beginning with shows in Japan, followed by performances at Belgium’s legendary Groezrock, Spain’s Resurrection Fest and UK’s Rebellion Fest amongst countless other European festivals. With tours through Russia and Australia in the works, AUTHORITY ZERO continues to seek new destinations to spread their live show and music.

Initially their goal was simple; create a sound that paid tribute to their punk rock forefathers, but not confined by the musical barriers that typically bound the genre together. Now,18 years later, they have just wrapped on their fifth full-length studio album. Named after the Malcolm Gladwell book, The Tipping Point was recorded with producer Cameron Webb (Pennywise, Social Distortion, Motorhead etc.) at Maple Studios in California. Their latest effort pays tribute to their punk rock forefathers while expanding their musical boundaries into unconventional reggae and rock tinges beyond the typical punk rock aesthetics, creating a whirlwind rock album that will undoubtedly take listeners by storm.

The new album is set to be released on April 2nd via Hardline Entertainment-US/Canada/Japan, Concrete Jungle-Europe/UK and 3wise Records-Australia and will be followed by a heavy touring schedule around the globe. Lead Singer and Front Man, Jason DeVore says “The excitement and anticipation for the new album The Tipping Point that I have is unparalleled,” says vocalist Jason DeVore. “The closest thing I can think of is how I felt when we first released A Passage In Time so many years ago. You feel you’re really doing something right when you and the members of your band are rocking out to it like it’s their new favorite album that just came out. That’s how it should feel. The energy, the intensity, and collaborative sounds along with a new realm of production working with Cameron Webb has made it extremely intense. It’s a taste of the old school and slingshots into new areas and veins of music we have yet to tap into. We’ve also incorporated some surprise elements. It’s an album based on the idea of tipping the scales, unity, causing a ruckus while forging on, and the history and future of all who have been involved and will be for years to come. We’re fired up.”

Eighteen years into their storied career began and Authority Zero has seen their fair share of ups-and-downs. After original guitarist and longtime friend Bill Marcks left the band in 2008, members have seemed to come and go, but the band and music has carried on. Recently, after the release of their last album, Stories of Survival, guitarist Zach Vogel departed the band to return to his home in Wisconsin for more family time. Shortly after that and with the turn of the New Year in 2011, long time friend and drummer Jim Wilcox also left the band to pursue other endeavors.

At this point, many bands would have folded under the pressure of lineup changes and setbacks, but the rest of the band carried on by inviting new recruits and Amarillo, TX native Brandon Landelius on guitar along with legendary punk drummer, Sean Sellers (Good Riddance, Real McKenzies) on drums to restructure and complete the group. With their fifth studio album The Tipping Point, Authority Zero is determined to carry on with perseverance and dedication to spread their music and message to fans around the globe.
