Polkadot Cadaver
Polkadot Cadaver
When Baltimore based Alt-Metal act Dog Fashion Disco came to an end, it wasn't the end of front man Todd Smith, guitarist Jasan Stepp Guitar and drummer John Ensminger musical output.

During the near decade the group spent in Dog Fashion Disco. Smith and his merry band of misfits would amass a loyal underground following of fans (dubbed the "mushroom cult") through countless tours with the likes of Slayer, Mindless Self Indulgence, Nothingface and Lacuna Coil. Although Dog Fashion Disco never achieved commercial success, their musical legacy gained the respect of musical contemporaries like Serj Tankian of System of a Down (who made a guest appearance on Anarchists of Good Taste), Mushroomhead and American Head Charge, while the group's music lives on through the internet and continues to create new members of the "mushroom cult" long after the band's demise.

While Smith and company may have become sick of living the vagabond lifestyle that a touring metal band requires, the thought of giving up music entirely never even crossed their minds. Within mere months of their former outfits demise the group had created a new group, Polkadot Cadaver to unleash their schizophrenic musical madness.

"Jasan and I decided to start a studio band and Polkadot Cadaver started as shells of songs on Jasan's computer. After we fleshed out the songs we pitched it Rotten Records, because we loved how they handled the last Dog Fashion Disco album," says Smith about the formation of the group. "They immediately got behind us and as soon as received a recording budget we went to Wrightway Studios to work and complete the record. Polkadot Cadaver is very similar to Dog Fashion Disco stylistically. The songs are still very quirky and different from each other." Recorded in the bowels of Baltimore with producer Steven Wright (Jimmie's Chicken Shack, SR-71), Polkadot Cadaver's debut album picks up right where Dog Fashion Disco left off. The brilliance of the band's musical output lies within their ability to sonically shape shift like a musical chameleon that can adapt to any music style. "What's The Worst Thing" blisters with thrashing Slayer like riffage and then spills into the soothing folk-pop melodies of "Chloroform Girl". The album's lyrical insanity the delivers homicidal blow to Polkadot Cadaver's musical homicide, covering gamut of topics ranging from plane crashes, narcissistic models, Christ, the devil and good old Baltimore, MD.

New Years Day
New Years Day
New Years Day formed in 2005 after bassist Adam Lohrbach left the band Home Grown. Home Grown's final EP, 2004's When it All Comes Down, had diverged from the band's previous style of humorous pop punk and incorporated many emotional elements that Lohrbach carried over into New Years Day. Meeting with vocalist Ashley Costello and guitarist/keyboardist Keith Drover, the three began rehearsing songs that Costello and Lorhbach had written. These songs were heavily influenced by the members' shared emotional experiences, as Lohrbach and Costello had both recently been through difficult relationship break-ups.

The group soon added guitarist Mike Schoolden (formerly of Wakefield) and drummer Russell Dixon and took the name New Years Day.
The band began building a reputation through promotion and posting songs on the MySpace social networking website, and were featured on the MySpace Records Volume 1 compilation CD and in the soundtrack of the video game Saints Row. After considering an offer from the Pete Wentz-run Decaydance Records label, the band signed to TVT Records and released a debut self-titled EP in 2006. Originally referred to as the Razor EP, it was primarily a digital release made available through download services such as iTunes, though CD copies were also available at the band's performances. They also performed at the South by Southwest music festival that same year.

From 2006–2007 New Years Day self-financed and self-produced their debut album My Dear, recorded over an eight-month period at the home of producer Eugene Perreras.[3] The album was released on May 8, 2007 and includes collaborations with members of Reel Big Fish and Motion City Soundtrack. The band's debut music video for the lead single "I Was Right" won an MTVU "Freshman Face" poll and was added to the channel's playlist.

The band started writing new material in early 2009. Around September 2009, NYD posted two new songs on their MySpace page.[8] When asked about a new EP, vocalist Ashley Costello said, "The EP is in its demo phase right now and we are still writing for it and recording it at the same time. The EP should be out in the spring of 2010."

On March 12, 2010, Alternative Press announced that New Year's Day have been added on the Warped Tour's summer dates. New Year's Day released their Japanese debut album called "Headlines & Headstones" on July 2nd, 2010 under Spinning Inc. The album contains music from their first EP, their first LP "My Dear", a Lady Gaga cover and new songs from their upcoming 2nd full-length US album.
