Based in Milford, Connecticut, rocking an energetic blend of pop-punk and metal, Cometa was formed by twin brothers Grant and Gareth Cometa. They've been featured on the famous Vans Warped Tour, and have shared the stage with All Time Low, New Found Glory, and The All-American Rejects. With Wes Long on drums and Josh Styles on bass, the band prides itself on their energetic live show and connection with their fans. Since the band's formation, they've won several Battle of the Bands and have been nominated for Best Hard Rock Act at the New England Music Awards. They have released two studio albums and are currently working on recording their third. You can find them as @cometamusic on all social platforms.
Sober Bill is a four piece pop punk ensemble consisting of lead guitarist Jake Coleman, bassist and producer Ryan Grustas, drummer Jake Noreika, and singer/rhythm guitarist Max Miller. The band is out of Torrington, CT and puts on a hell of a live performance. They independently record and produce their work at bassist Ryan Grustas' "Homebase Studio" in Torrington. This band just put out an album and is currently working on collaborations with other local artists as well as a few of their own singles.
Shame Penguin brings an anything-goes adventurousness to their songwriting. Like every band on the Internet these days, they've got an audible reverence for iconic acts of the 90s, but they're musically omnivorous: You might hear anything from noise pop to j-rock in their record collections, and their appreciation of the classics mean they're pulling from a pretty deep bag of musical tricks.
Their songs are tense, sometimes angry, often righteous. But fundamentally, this band wants to be kind. These guys may be singing songs about personal and societal harm, but you're more likely to notice hugs and smiles at a Shame Penguin show than most of their contemporaries. The band's brotherhood shines through in their music - guitar and bass parts that come alive in response to each other, a rhythm section groove so steady you could land an airplane on it, and multi-part vocals that feel come together like Voltron.
