KILLCODE is a five piece band based in New York City. Their unique sound is a product of their diverse influences and has been described as “Southern infused Metal / Rock with modern vocals”. KILLCODE’s songs are hooky super charged sing along Anthems with BIG Guitars and Driving Rhythms’.
Forming in 2008, vocalist Tom Morrissey and guitarist Chas laid the foundation with a couple of songs they recorded at Chas’ home studio. After recruiting long time musical companion Erric Bonesmith on bass guitar, KILLCODE found its final form with the addition of Pat Harrington on guitar and Rob Noxious on the drums.
With all members coming from established projects prior to KILLCODE, the band quickly raised eyebrows and landed on bills with the likes of Godsmack & Sevendust. KILLCODE also provided main support to Brett Scallions on the Re Fueled East Coast tour.
Since their inception, the band has released “To Die For”, a six song EP released at the end of 2008 and a second six song EP,“Taking it All” released in 2010. Both EP’s charted well nationally and gained the band critical acclaim worldwide. The song “Breaking Away”, off of To Die For, was featured in the inspirational documentary, DRESSED, Directed by David Swajeski and starring fashion designer Nari Manivong.
In 2012, they entered the studio once again with Juno nominated producer, Stacy O’Dell, who produced both EP’s, to record the full length, twelve song effort titled, “KILLCODE”.
The Album charted in the #2 position for the week of 8/18/12 on BILLBOARD Mid-Atlantic Heatseekers Charts.
CME records recently re-released the Album via Mega force/Sony Red with two bonus tracks which will extend the bands reach even further
The band has enjoyed an ever growing fan base has headlined and sold out marquee venues such as New York City’s Gramercy Theater, Bowery Ballroom and Irving Plaza.
KILLCODE is at the top of their game and they are not showing any signs of slowing down.
KILLCODE – Anthems for Outlaws!
M o t h e r is a four-piece formed in Brooklyn, NY, though the music is made where ever they meet. Traveling with minimal analog recording gear, they spent four weeks late 2013 recording an album between Los Angeles, Chicago and New York. City shape sound.

Producer Jimmy Giannopoulos (Lolawolf, Reputante) and vocalist Penn Badgley, neighborhood friends for years in New York, waited patiently for a sound to manifest beyond their bond based upon an odd pop aesthetic. Bassist Darren Will (Rathborne) was always orbiting, always an obvious partner when the time came. The three finally decided to hole up in a little Bungalow in East LA in October 2013 to record for eight days without anything written, without expectation. Seeking a microphone, they found in the neighborhood one-time-Brooklynite and New Zealand ex-pat Simon Oscroft, who proved to be the guitarist they weren’t looking for. The spontaneous quartet recorded five songs in five days before taking a breath to see they had, in fact, started a band.
Circus Life
Circus Life
"I love their music. It's very rock." —DJ Oz’s introduction before playing “Jet Black Leather Lace” on his B-Local show on

Very rock for sure, Circus Life puts an authentic dose into the needle that has been missing the vein for too long. While the band may be brand new, its members are no strangers to the rock n’ roll lifestyle. Featuring ex-members of such road horses as Fixer, More, and January Jane, Circus Life embraces and celebrates the tribulations of hard-living life on the road. Their shared experiences and fierce sense of brotherhood ooze through the music. Bandleader Tommy Zamp delivers his rich baritone with a swagger that belies his first foray as a lead vocalist, while delivering furious guitar riffs and leads with effortless aplomb. Backed by the muscular-yet-groovy rhythm section of Jakk on bass and Rev Swank on drums, Circus Life is definitely a force to be reckoned with.
Arden and the Wolves

Developed and fronted by Arden Leigh.
