NARROW HEAD (11:00 PM)

“Nobody has riffs anymore,” says founding member/vocalist/guitarist Jacob Duarte when asked about his approach on 12th House Rock, Narrow Head’s highly anticipated LP for Run for Cover due on August 28. “That’s the kind of band we are and to me, that’s just how you write songs. Drums, bass, guitar, vocals. Nothing else. There are no other instruments on the record.”

The Houston-based band’s latest entry is the distillation of the greatest moments in 90’s alternative and hard rock with a fresh set of ears, thirteen tracks of their signature brand of bludgeoning lullabies bursting at the seams with creative ideas, new directions and yes, massive, monolithic riffs. In between the sparkle and smash, open-hearted and emotionally naked songwriting showcases a core piece of the band’s identity– showcasing 12th House Rock as one of the best releases of 2020. “It’s the definitive work of Narrow Head,” proudly explains bassist Ryan Chavez. “Recorded in a studio over a month’s span, the way they used to do it. Not just for the sake of making it that way, but because it was the right way for us.”

TEMPLE OF ANGELS (10:00 PM)

Originally formed in 2017 after meeting at punk shows in their home of Austin, Texas, Temple of Angels’ hazy blend of dream pop and post-punk has garnered them a dedicated following throughout the country. Returning for their first shows in 2022 following the recording of their yet-to-be-released debut full-length, the five-piece is looking forward to returning to the stage to showcase both new and old material that spans their discography.

BLEED (9:00 PM)

Fabricated in Dallas, Texas with seemingly effortless self-assurance BLEED’s music harkens back to a period of time when the 90s were going from mid to late and grunge and more mainstream metal were converging in a flurry of credibly hard-hitting, melodic heaviness that played equally well on college and mainstream rock radio. The band’s songs hit with visceral heavy impact and infectious alt rock hooks, then given further shape by singer Ryan Hughes whose airy vocals glide fluidly overhead. 

As the band continue the work of crafting their full length LP, to be released by 20 Buck Spin next year, the label will first finally issue ‘Somebody’s Closer’ in physical form on vinyl and tape. In the meantime the EP is streaming in full via all platforms and demanding repeat spins.
