We've got THE PRE HALLOWEEN show for you Memphis. These two bands are frightfully fantastic and they're coming to Growlers OCT 29 to kick off the week. It's a Monster of a Monday show and and if you don't come out to see this it's going to haunt you forever! Local Support TBA, don't be scared ...the locals are going to get you screaming too! WINGTIPS was officially formed in 2014 by Vincent Segretario. In 2015 they self-released Ultravision – a collection of demos recorded at home. Their most recent release, Greyarea, is an androgynous sound of transition – an interpolation of darkly shimmering layers of angular guitar and pulsating EBM. With this release, Hannah Avalon moves from live member to creative collaborator. " Provoker is a band from the Bay Area, featuring members of San Jose and Oakland punk bands. The collective plays a cracked version of new wave/dark wave—steady beats, warbled horror soundtrack synths, reverb, gauze-like layers of guitar sound over undeniable melody. There is a narcotic effect to their brand of synth pop, fusing the mood and atmosphere of Pornography-era The Cure with a brighter MGMT aesthetic. Provoker is both hangover and remedy for 80’s oversaturation, skipping the pomp and grandiosity for something more organic. " - J.K. LOUIE, 2018 http://www.wingtipswebsite.com/ https://www.provoker.zone/
Fencing champion Ross Monteith and orchestra nerd Calvin Langman didn't exactly get along in high school. However, a chance conversation about the success of Youtube cover bands brought the two together to pave a road to quick fortune. Their mix of rocking guitars and electric cello created a unique dynamic, blending their love of rock artists like The Black Keys and folk bands like The Violent Femmes. Working on covers grew tiresome, and an emotional break-up soon inspired them to write their first song together. The resulting music produced a youthful and chaotic frenzy of catchy melodies and raw instrumentals. When the band recruited professional gamer Luke Davis to join the band on drums, The Happy Fits were born. Their Debut EP "Awfully Apeelin'" Was released in the august of 2016 and their single, While You Fade Away, Debuted at #5 on Spotify's Top 50 Viral USA Chart and #17 on Spotify's Top 50 Viral Global Chart.

Stellar Circuits are a newcomer band hailing from North Carolina. They formed in 2015 and are already causing quite a stir within their local metal scene opening for established acts such as Ill Nino. Their musical style is somewhat unique, it incorporates Progressive Rock and Post Hardcore with a slight helping of Doom into the bargain. The self-titled EP has five tracks laden with intricate, groove- driven wall of sound. For a band that have only existed since last year, I am astonished that they have managed to create such an awesome EP in such a short space of time. No doubt the musicians all know their trade exceptionally well, the musical talent displayed on these five tracks alone is simply mind shattering. The extraordinary vocal range and kaleidoscopic array of riffs and harmonic changes are phenomenal. If I were to try and define Stellar Circuits sound it would probably sound something like this; an intricate blend of fusion, progressive rock, with some modern metal injections for good measure. It could also be depicted as a combination of Henry Rollins, Rush, Korn, Tool, Snapcase, Only Living Witness, Theory of a Deadman, with a touch of Crowbar. Definitely a band to keep an eye open for, as I’m sure they will break into the big league very soon if this EP is anything to go by. https://www.stellarcircuitsmusic.com/
