Blacktop Mojo
A hard-driving Southern rock unit based out of Palestine, Texas, Blacktop Mojo's fiery blend of post-grunge, classic rock, and metal falls somewhere between Soundgarden , Black Stone Cherry , and Lynyrd Skynyrd . Founded in 2012 by frontman Matt James and drummer Nathan Gillis, the band eventually morphed into a five-piece with the additions of bass player Matt Curtis and guitarists Ryan Kiefer and Kenneth Irwin. They released their debut album, I Am, in 2014, followed by a heavy bout of touring that saw the group sharing the stage with a wide array of heavy hitters, including Bon Jovi , Puddle of Mudd , Sammy Hagar , and Drowning Pool . In 2017, the band teamed up with Muscle Shoals producer Jimmy Johnson for their highly anticipated sophomore outing Burn the Ships. ~ James Christopher Monger
Of Limbo
Of Limbo
Brothers Jake and Luke Davies were raised in Melbourne, Australia. Growing up on rock ’n’ roll, they developed a passion for playing music together, one that would lead them to Long Beach, California, where in 2014 they formed OF LIMBO. With the addition of Herbie Brady on bass and Anthony Aguilar on drums, they released their self-titled, self-produced debut EP soon after, which established the band’s sound as a versatile and refreshingly modern take on rock, contrary to the generic and stale trends surrounding them. Two years of shows across greater Los Angeles quickly garnered them a reputation for their wild and dynamic performances, showing a presence reminiscent of rock bands from the early 90s. The group’s newest release Nicotine is now available on all leading outlets. With the addition of Juan Paz on drums, keep an eye on OF LIMBO in the years to come.
