Waiting For Signal
Waiting For Signal
Band biographies are almost always complete shit. We know this. So we won’t waste your time with self indulging nonsense about when this guy met that guy...

Here is what you should know:

- Heavy / Never Metal / Rock / Alternative / Indie / With a hook
- 4 members (Gene - Vox/Guitar, Ryan - Guitar/Vox, Brent - Bass, and Justin - Drums)
- Kansas City, Missouri (Home)
- Think Failure, QOTSA, Depeche Mode, Shiner, Interpol, Muse (What they say)
- Two EPs Released, (The Catastrophe EP and The Division EP) another in the oven.

We write, record, produce, release, tour, and promote independently
We make fancy noises with guitars
We want to be exposed to more people

Now listen and drop us a line if you feel so inclined.
Maps For Travelers
Maps For Travelers
Maps For Travelers formed in early 2010, and is a collective of 4 musicians who have played and toured nationally in various band around the Kansas city area. Maps For Travelers have their eyes set on simply making music, writing records and taking it to the streets for people to hear. With influences such as Cave In, Failure, Shiner, Hey Mercedes, Far, Quicksand, American Football, Brand New and a long list of other bands. Maps For Travelers released a 5 song ep titled "Regress|Progress" Oct 12th 2010 to great reviews courtesy of The Pitch. " The songs mash together the snarling post-hardcore riffs of Taking Back Sunday and the muscular melodies of early Jimmy Eat World." The band also released 3 singles "Static", "Not Far Enough" and "So Kind" in late Jan 2011. 2012 brought regional touring in support of Bars of Gold and Casket Lottery. Maps For Travelers has shared the stage with acts such as Fucked up, Junius, Casket Lottery, O'Brother, Touche Amore, Balance and Composure, Appleseed Cast, Colour Revolt, The Jealous Sound, Bars Of Gold,The Bled, The Memorials, Emery, Just Like Vinyl and many other amazing bands. Look for the band to be on the road frequently in 2013 along with their debut album release "Change Your Name" set to release Aug 27th courtesy of No Sleep Records.
In The Grove
In The Grove
In the Grove formed in Kansas City, MO around September, 2007 with, Dusty Ferrell, Chris Teuber, Andrew Harper, and Justin Ripetto. The first number of months was spent writing a catalog of songs. In the Grove made its first live appearance on March 29, 2008 at the Riot Room in KC. Travis Buerky filled in as vocalist from March through June of 08. Meanwhile, in May of 08, we began tracking instrumental parts at Blackpage Recordings of what would become our self titled full-length. While at Blackpage, Sam Hoskins took over as vocalist. He fronted the project from July 08 through February 09. Sam tracked vocal parts from October 08 to January 09 at Soundworks Studios in Blue Springs, MO. Andy Oxman mixed and mastered the record. Since the release,we have been meticulously working on a new catalogue of music. In the process, we've found our new singer/ guitarist Shelby Wiest. We now are a four piece moving forward in a innovative and exciting direction. In the Grove has played with bands such as BIGELF,Tweak Bird, Riddle of Steel, Traindodge, Roma 79, Prize Country, National Fire Theory, Paper Cities, Latin, and Thunder Eagle. Our self titled debut is available now. Enjoy! ..
We Are Voices
We Are Voices
Music that will make your heart stop and your ears bleed.
Sundiver
Sundiver
UNDIVER is a Kansas City based rock band. The inception of the group came from song writing/singing duo John Agee (guitar) and Bobby Bayer (bass) with the motivation to create celestial soundscapes, science fiction story telling and hard driving guitar riffs. The group was quickly filled out by Nick Organ (Drums) and Joseph Wells (guitar/synthesizer.) SUNDIVER released it's first recording in the spring of 2012 titled "Vicious EP" recorded/engineered/mastered by Jeff Pickman at The Noise Arcade studios in Kansas City, MO.
The Invisible World
The Invisible World
In this world we are given the things that are visible, but we must examine much closer to understand The Invisible World.

from the start; the members of the Invisible World were drawn together out a mutual respect for the power of sound. That relationship grew into a broad expression of creative potential at a very early age. Formerly known as "A Dead Giveaway", this group of young musicians have developed a style that encompasses influences from every sense.

The Invisible World is known only through experience, we can not see it, we can not touch it, but it is present in all that we do. It could be equated that the music of our instruments, is the formation of our souls into sound. That is why, The Invisible World is a part of all that we do.
