ARRIVER formed in summer 2004 in Chicago, IL by Dan Sullivan (guitar) & Rob Sullivan (bass) (both ex-contributors to Songs: OHIA & Magnolia Electric Co.), and Dan MacAdam (guitar/ ex-Viza Noir). Over time, they honed a sound that seamlessly blends classic and modern strains of rock, metal, and prog into a uniquely vicious hybrid. With the amicable departure of Bill Murphy, ARRIVER brought in long time comrade-in-rock Joe Kaplan (ex-Viza Noir) to drum. With Joe, ARRIVER began pushing tempos and sound more aggressively. Vocals evolved to match and what has emerged is a decidedly harder sound. ARRIVER shows confidence in their craft and willingness to bulldoze sub-genres of metal, prog and hardcore.
Only the Bones (members of Snow Burial/The Swan King)
Only The Bones is a Chicago trio melding angular punk rock with atmospheric soundscapes to create their own musical world with sounds absorbed from Fugazi/Refused/Drive like Jehu and sights painted by Kubrick/Lynch/Carpenter. The first EP will commence at the famed Electrical Audio this winter with Greg Norman (Pelican/Russian Circles) manning the boards. Look for Only The Bones to decimate stages throughout the US in 2017.
