New Language

Meet, NEW LANGUAGE.
The band is out of Los Angeles created by Tyler Demorest and Matt Cohen.

The two joined forces with Tony Hajjar of At The Drive-In / Sparta to produce the new music. Intentions of creating an EP quickly turned into a Summer of writing and recording a handful of songs that are now beginning to surface.

NEW LANGUAGE made their debut performance in April 2016 to a sold out crowd as direct support to Gone Is Gone (Queens of the Stone Age, Mastodon, At The Drive-In) in Los Angeles, CA and then went on to be direct support to THE USED on their 15 Year Anniversary Tour across the US.

The band's live lineup is Tyler Demorest (vocals, guitar), Matt Cohen (bass), Sebastien Betley (guitar), and Martin Dovali (drums).

LiquidLight

LiquidLight

Recently selected as Portland Oregon's Best Emerging Alt Rock Band by The Deli Magazine, LiquidLight has momentum and they aren't stopping any time soon. Their recently released first full length album, Uninitiated, showcases a band with tremendous potential as a pop-rock powerhouse. Referencing post-punk and alternative bands such as Husker Du and The Replacements, LiquidLight has been described as "melodic, thoughtful and jingle-jangly as well as shred-crazy and powerful".


In an age where popular culture pushes to "out-extreme" the latest and greatest, LiquidLight pursues balance and clarity with respect to great rock tradition. With a high standard of execution, strong melodies and elements of psychedelic and alternative influences, the music conveys a new, yet referential optimism. "LiquidLight has managed to produce an album that is not quite like anything else hitting your eardrums lately" - Eleven Magazine


Songwriters Anthony Medici and Cory West, both Berklee College of Music alums, honed their craft while performing with bands in Boston and along the East Coast. They are each highly accomplished multi-instrumentalists backed by an explosive and versatile rhythm section. Medici's lead vocals lend a cryptic yet powerful element to the sound and structure of the band, echoing the melodic sensibilities of the college/alternative era.
