The Bunny The Bear have hit the road for a month long Winter Tour across the US. They kicked off their tour Wednesday, February 11th, at Bogies in Albany NY. The band was able to showcase their new “Bear”, with the addition of clean vocalist, Haley Roback. The band put on a great, energetic show, which was appreciated by all fans, new and old.

Check out what he had to say about their Winter Tour, music for the future, and their latest album, with some commentary from other members of the band. Continue reading
Upstate New York’s own Bogies hosted Avatar on October 18th. The five-piece band hails from Sweden and were currently on a North American tour when they stopped in to crush the concertgoers of Downtown Albany. While not necessarily a household name in the metal scene, Avatar has seen a growing cult following amongst their most die hard fans, which could be seen in full force when they performed at the legendary venue.
What better way to kick off a tour with 5 of your label mates than to start in your hometown with a wild sold out show; this was how the Pure Noise Tour kicked off for State Champs and Brandon Pagano from Handguns band. The two co-headlining bands take the stage each night with Front Porch Step, Forever Came Calling, Heart to Heart, and Brigades. Pure Noise Records is a DIY record label that has come to be one of the most noteworthy pop punk labels over the past few years and even had bands on main stage at this year’s warped tour. This tour showcases up and coming bands with great momentum from the Pure Noise label that should be on everyone’s radar. If this tour hasn’t come through your city yet but sure to catch it and get there early enough to catch each and every band!
