All Time Low
All Time Low
Formed in 2003 in the suburbs of Baltimore, Maryland, All Time Low started out as a high-school cover band before morphing into a melodic emo-pop act. Singer/guitarist Alex Gaskarth and guitarist Jack Barakat were All Time Low's co-founders, with bassist Zack Merrick and drummer Rian Dawson rounding out their energetic pop-punk sound and rowdy live show, which often included silly string and beach balls. Honing their skills between homework and other teenage commitments, the guys managed to tour across the East Coast and South during school breaks. They issued a four-song EP, 2004's The Three Words to Remember in Dealing with the End, with help from local label Emerald Moon, and followed its release with a full-length album, The Party Scene, one year later. Touring across the country that summer, the guys found themselves on bills with similar acts like Motion City Soundtrack, the Early November, and Plain White T's. Along the way, All Time Low also bumped into fellow pop-punkers Amber Pacific, who brought the young band to the attention of their label, Hopeless Records. The label was immediately impressed, and All Time Low had officially become part of the Hopeless family by March 2006, just a few months shy of the members' high-school graduation. Finally done with schoolwork and able to concentrate full-time on music, the group issued Put Up or Shut Up -- a seven-song EP that mostly featured new recordings of older material -- that July. All Time Low supported the EP's release with a handful of Warped Tour dates before hitting the road again with Amber Pacific. So Wrong, It's Right appeared in 2007, marking the band's first full-length release for Hopeless. After being named 2008's Band of the Year by Alternative Press, All Time Low returned with their second album, Nothing Personal, in July 2009. Debuting at number four on the Billboard charts, Nothing Personal helped make All Time Low one of the top emo-pop acts in the business. Two CD/DVD packages, MTV Unplugged and Straight to DVD, were released the following year, tiding fans over while the guys returned to the studio to begin work on their major-label debut for Interscope Records. Dirty Work, featuring the single "I Feel Like Dancin'," was released in 2011. The album reached number six on the Billboard charts the week it was released, and the band hit the road. In 2012, All Time Low announced they had parted ways with Interscope and released a new song, "The Reckless and the Brave," on their website in June. Soon after, they re-signed with Hopeless and began work on a new album. Don't Panic was released in November of 2012, then reissued almost a year later with four newly recorded songs and four acoustic versions under the name Don't Panic: It's Longer Now! In 2015, All Time Low returned with their sixth record, Future Hearts, which found them reuniting with their Dirty Work producer, John Feldmann. ~ Corey Apar
SWMRS
SWMRS is Cole Becker (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Max Becker (lead vocals, lead guitar), Joey Armstrong (drums, backing vocals), and Sebastian Mueller (bass, backing vocals). The band emerged in early 2015 through the dissolution of previous project Emily's Army. In the grand tradition of punk rock, Cole Becker and friend Joey Armstrong formed the band before even learning to play their instruments, after watching the movie School of Rock at age eight. Drawing influence from seminal pop-punk acts like The Ramones and The Clash, the Beckers and Armstrong released two full-length records and a handful of EPs before graduating high school. The band toured the world, sharing stages with the likes of Pennywise, Rise Against, The Aquabats, Gerard Way, and Soundgarden, and appeared at Reading and Leeds festivals, Warped Tour, and Soundwave, before pursuing a new musical endeavor with a broader sonic palate. The new band solidified its lineup as Max Becker made the switch from bass to lead guitar and Armstrong taught friend Sebastian Mueller to play the bass. SWMRS attributes the emotional lyrical content and slicker production of their new material to diverse influences ranging from Public Enemy and A Tribe Called Quest to Pavement, Weezer, and Nirvana.
Waterparks
Houston, TX's Waterparks will release their new EP, Cluster, on January 15 via Equal Vision Records. Cluster was recorded with producers Benji Madden (Good Charlotte, 5 Seconds of Summer) and Courtney Ballard (5 Seconds of Summer, All Time Low).

"We're super excited to be signed to Equal Vision Records. We've all been listening to EVR bands since 8th and 9th grade so actually joining the label's roster is insane. We've always seen Equal Vision as a label that lets bands be as weird or experimental as they want to be, so we thought it was a great fit for us," says vocalist Awsten Knight. "Also, Say Anything is on this label, so now Max Bemis kinda has to be friends with us. Hi Max."

Waterparks performed as direct support to Good Charlotte on their recent reunion show in Los Angeles, CA at the Troubadour on November 19, where Billboard praised Waterparks on their "killer hooks and killer attitudes." The trio has also seen early support from MTV and BBC Radio One, and can even be seen making a cameo in Good Charlotte's new music video.
Waterparks will soon head out on their first full US tour, as the opener on Never Shout Never's upcoming headliner that will span from January 13 to February 27. All upcoming tour dates can be found HERE.

Waterparks lead single - "Crave" - debuted via a puppy-filled music video on Billboard.com, while their second song released from the album - "Mad All The Time" - premiered via AltPress.com.
Waterparks has also partnered with MDDN.co., which was founded by the Madden Brothers in 2014. MDDN specializes in management, publishing, and production. MDDN defines itself as being for artists, created by artists. Of the new partnership Joel Madden shares, "We are extremely excited to be working with Waterparks. One of the best young bands we've heard in years. They are talented musicians, prolific writers, and a great live band. We are excited for the future of this band, and proud to be a part of their team."

To date, Waterparks has released two EPs: Black Light (2014) and Airplane Conversations (2012). Waterparks is comprised of vocalist/guitarist Awsten Knight, guitarist/vocalist Geoff Wigington, and drummer/vocalist Otto Wood.
The WRECKS
The Wrecks are an Indie Rock band originating in Thousand Oaks, California. This 5 piece is currently finishing up the process of self-producing an EP heavily influenced by groups such as The Killers, Cage the Elephant, and Vampire Weekend making it almost impossible not to dance to. The band actually recorded their debut EP on a whim, alongside engineer Andrew D'Angelo, when they were surprised with the news that a friend had been granted access to a studio for just a few days. With a total budget of $0, and only a week as a band under their belts, the group set out to record the best songs that they could in 3 days. After working ridiculous hours through the night, and to the next day whenever they could get in the studio, the 3 days were over and the EP was cut. Little did the band know, they were not even allowed to be in the studio that week. So when they found that out on the last day, they cleaned every bit of information of theirs from the studio computer, and every crumb of Dominoes from the studio couch.
