There's something about catching a Use Big Words set that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. The band's chemistry is undeniable, and their dancy-tunes will keep you shakin. 3 piece-groovy-emo with the ultimate feels.

Emotive/technical melodic post-hardcore from the suburbs of NJ.
In Angles started in East Brunswick NJ (a lesser known Brunswick) as a bedroom project. Their debut EP, Upstairs, was dubbed that simply because that's where it was written. The boys strive to dance the line between technical and memorable, creating well-crafted tunes with a factor of shred.
With the release of Upstairs came some recognition from local musicians. After creating a full-time lineup, the band began writing together and playing shows. The band embarked on it's first tour July of 2015.
Their Debut LP Cascading Home debuts on Choke Artist/Esque Records this March.

Fero Lux cannot be killed.
Utilizing elements of thrashy-math core and heavy-hitting post hardcore, the South Florida band is a 4-man powerhouse. They've toured nationally and been recognized nationwide as an up and coming act. The bands' 2012 debut full length Some Divine Ashtray, was given a 4 out of 5 star rating from Sputnik Music, and even turned the heads of certain money-grubbing major labels (who will not be named).
Through all bullshit the band has maintained a hard-working ethic and determination to be heard. Socially conscious and pissed off, the band is a force to reckon with.

Invalids started as the bedroom project of Pete Davis (with remote internet-based collaboration with other musicians). As of March 2015, it has grown to a proper four-piece band with the addition of Joe Scala, Raymond Bonanno, and Brock Benzel.
TBOTW is a band comprised of young dinosaurs; they've been around long enough to be known as a DIY ska-punk staple, but most members are still barely pushing 30.
Extensively touring since 2008 will do that for a band. With 10 self-booked tours, 3 EPs, one full length album, and 2 7" records, the band has kept busy. They have no plans of stopping either.
This year the band hits it's 10 year anniversary mark. They will be celebrating with some soon to be announced tour dates in March.
One thing for sure is that TBOTW is a mainstay in underground music, with no desire to ever cross over to the other side. With influences of punk, ska, metalcore, the band is one gigantic middle finger to social and musical norms.

Lobby Boxer is a 3 piece jammy noodle-punk band from St.Louis, Missouri. The band infuses elements of soul, rock, and emo to make something really spectacular. Their self-titled EP caught our attention early in 2015 and was one of our favorite releases.
Their new LP Big Bucks is out now via Choke Artist.
