Assuming We Survive
Assuming We Survive
Pop Punk/Alternative/Easycore from Inland Empire CA

Adrian Estrella – Vocals
Phil Adams – Guitar
Joe Lawson – Bass
Kris Pasos – Drums

Rock n’ roll subculture is uniquely exciting in terms of the level of crowd participation, interactivity, and accessibility present at most shows. From the early days of the Sex Pistols and the Ramones, clear through to the Descendants and NOFX, the most passionate of players work hard to destroy the perceived boundary between the audiences and the band. “Hey, we’re just fans, too. You could be us.”

Assuming We Survive takes this ethos and amplifies it times infinity, barreling headfirst into each and every aspect of their existence with collective energy and unbridled optimism. Singer Adrian Estrella, armed with unmistakable charisma and good-cheer, will take a literal surfboard into the crowd, riding the physical and metaphorical wave of enthusiasm and electricity present at every single AWS show.

The band’s frontman is united in his goodwill and welcoming vibe with his musical cohorts and fellow Inland Empire, California mainstays: guitarist Phil Adams, bassist Joe Lawson, and drummer Kris Pasos. Assuming We Survive has generated steady steam and garnered accolades for nearly a decade. But in recent years, AWS has truly come into their own as their dedicated approach spreads their sound across the globe, amassing an army of smiling supporters eager to give the band their all.

It’s a wave of momentum and positivity that’s catapulted Assuming We Survive into the Top 50 on the New Artist charts and more importantly into the hearts and minds of a burgeoning crew of likeminded supporters and believers, from the kids who share their love for the band on social media to the band’s contemporaries sharing stages with them at Vans Warped Tour, Self-Help Festival, and Monster’s Aftershock.

All Roads Lead to Home, the band’s debut full-length on Third String Records, is a collection of inspiring jams running the gamut from pop-punk to Easycore, with aggressive energy befitting of the more extreme sides of the underground scene and soaring melodies with unapologetic hooks catchier than most Top 40 rock radio.

Assuming We Survive songs like the instant crowd pleaser “18 Days,” the nakedly self-reflecting “Open Water,” the devastatingly amazing “We Are All Zombies” and the acoustic duet “Next to Me” are a collective testament to the band’s creative diversity, dense musical influences, and willingness to pour themselves into their music. These songs are earnestly heartfelt. AWS is both motivated and motivating.

As part of the Supervillains Tour with Falling In Reverse, Attila, and Metro Station; the Christmas Vacation Tour with Falling In Reverse and Atreyu; South by Southwest; So What?! Music Fest; festival appearances with Avenged Sevenfold, Pierce The Veil, Sleeping With Sirens, Good Charlotte, and Real Friends; or headlining at Chain Reaction in Orange County, Assuming We Survive isn’t satisfied until every person in the house is energized, happy, and empowered. AWS is all about inclusivity, on the biggest of major festival stages or in the smallest of clubs.

Get ready to get involved, because Assuming We Survive aims to energize the whole world, one show at a time, channeling energy back and forth with every single fan.

“Trio Always”
KinZie was conceived in 2011 by frontman and guitarist Phillip Ori. Today, it stands as a trio, an equilateral triangle of intertwined melodies and rhythms in pursuit of balance, harmony, and synchronicity. Ori recruited bass guitarist Thomas M. Warren in 2014 originally as a second guitarist, but both agreed that his services would be better rendered in a lower octave. After a rotating door of drummers, Parker Chambliss showed up in their lives, and he was adopted into the fold quickly as the final member of the trio. Together, the three of them have recorded and self-released an EP titled “Young Vagabonds”, and have begun work on their new full-length record “Dead Eyes”, due out 2019.
The Murder of Jane Crow
The Murder of Jane Crow
Classically-inspired gypsy ballads from Birmingham AL

The Murder of Jane Crow is ruffling feathers around the world with their unique fusion of goth, cabaret, classical music and gypsy storytelling, at once theatrical and deeply personal. Vocalist Jane Grace, and classical guitarist Jimmy Branham support pianist and composer Jane Crow as they soar into emotional highs of true love and happiness, only to swoop back down again into the depths of despair. Fans have lauded the group for their delightfully expressive, unashamed, and powerful presence. A truly original act!
