United Nations
United Nations
United Nations is a frantic and frenetic hardcore/punk band.

Originally rumored to be a project founded by veterans from Thursday and more, United Nations' existence and subsequent recordings have been cloaked in confusion since their rumored inception. On the heels of the release of their debut full length on the Eyeball label in 2008, the United Nations Organization (UNO) shut down the band's pages on Social networking sites worldwide. The band was also forced to alter their debut album's cover, sighting retail stores refusal to carry the title with controversial artwork. This informational blackout further added to the aura of mystery surrounding the band, allowing them to grow stronger amidst the chaos.

2010 brings the release of "Never Mind The Bombings, Here's Your Six Figures", the second alleged release from the band. "Nevermind..." is a spastic and violent four song explosion that brings to mind the bygone days of the mid-1990's "screamo" sub-genre. A poignant musical missile meant to sink today's safe and predictable musical establishment.
Frameworks
Frameworks are a melodic hardcore band from Gainesville, FL. Forming in early 2011, they released their debut EP Every Day Is The Same, in October 2011. They incorporate elements of post-hardcore and screamo/skramz together, promoting their own brand of melody driven hardcore.

After receiving a small following from their debut EP Every Day Is The Same, they gained backing from 13th Floor Records, an independent record label from Fort Mill, SC. Through them they released their latest EP, Small Victories in February 2013. They plan to release their debut LP with Topshelf Records in 2014.
Sore Saints
Sore Saints
Angular, noisy, atonal. Sore Saints is comprised of four like-minded gentlemen from Philadelphia and Canada who, while born of different musical backgrounds, were still able to meet somewhere between Sonic Youth, The Jesus Lizard, and Hot Snakes. Think of it like this: say David Yow showed up to a party hosted by the Night Marchers. A few hours later a couple of bands that came out on Level Plane Records circa 2001 – 2003 crashed said party with a bunch of beer with the suggestion that all attendees shotgun one or two and swap instruments in a jam session that lasted about seventeen minutes, give or take.
