Amplified Heat
Amplified Heat
Rock N Roll, Blues, Psych Rock from Austin TX

In a time where everybody has to put a label on a band to try and separate or distinguish what kind of music they play, Amplified Heat adopts Lemmy from Motorhead's philosophy....ROCK AND ROLL! Emitting a truly menacing blues psych-rock sound from four massive walls of double stacked Marshall and Fender cabinets and a 1966 Ludwig drum kit in between - Amplified Heat continues the Texas tradition of pure, fearless rock and roll.

From Cali, Colombia the Ortiz brothers have been playing music together since the early 90’s and formed Amplified Heat in 2003. Based on a tradition of bone rattling blues they take a direct approach to intense riff slinging - never pulling punches and delivering the real deal with every sonic tsunami they unleash. The band has released four full length EP’s and their next album “Madera” is due out in early 2018. The band’s sound pulls from a variety of influences including Cream, Jimi Hendrix, Black Sabbath, Canned Heat, Motorhead, ZZ top, and Deep Purple.

Amplified Heat has shared the stage with Blue Cheer, The Black Angels, Clutch, Thee Oh Sees, Honky, Atomic Bitchwax, Kylesa, Kadavar, Ian Moore, Dead Meadow, Corky Lang’s Mountain, Buffalo Killers, Nashville Pussy, Dresden 45, and Roky Erickson amongst many others. They make multiple appearances every year at Austin’s South by Southwest Festival, have played at Ohio based Emissions from the Monolith Festival, and Oakland California’s Burger Bugaloo.
GT
GT
\Heavy, Slow, Fast/ from Birmingham AL

A Birmingham power trio given to insistent but agile rhythms and psychedelic interpretations of standard rock muscle, GT self-released two excellent EPs in 2013. Spurred by the enthusiasm of Alabama label and recording studio Communicating Vessels, who signed on to produce and release the band’s debut LP, the trio doubled down to make their best work yet—the thrilling, anthemic, addictive eight-song debut, Beats Misplaced. It’s a rock ’n’ roll thrill ride, full of pumping beats and plangent guitars, howled vocals and hooks that past. For these eight tunes, the blues commingle with noise rock, and a righteous boogie pulsates beneath shoegaze distortion. Think Japandroids or No Age being born in and embracing the humid and strange American South, and you start to hear GT through the haze.

Front man and lead guitarist Scotty Lee had tinkered with various incarnations of “GT,” the unifying acronym of his one-man arts-and-music project alternately known as Green Teeth, Get Tryin’ and Ghost Traveler. He’s been playing in bands since high school, from early cover acts and sets of instrumental brooders to post-hardcore crews and straight-ahead rock acts. But GT was a chance for him to separate himself from the frustrations of band life and start an outlet that would be forever his. With Byron Sonnier on bass and Mark Beasley on drums, both respected veterans of the music community themselves, GT is complete as they look forward to putting out their debut LP, Beats Misplaced, this summer. It represents the fulfillment of self-determination and the start of a great new rock band from the depths of the South.
