In the pop-punk weasel system, fake rock offenses are considered especially heinous. In Tempe, AZ, the dedicated rockers who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as Sundressed
. These are their stories. So begins the story of Sundressed. A story that involves tragedy and redemption. Six years ago Sundressed singer/guitarist Trevor Hedges was dead to rights on a bed in an Arizona hospital. Addiction, at any time, can take down the strongest of people. Trevor's struggles with addiction are detailed vividly in their album "Dig Up A Miracle"
. For most people music is an outlet, for Trevor it's an integral part of his life. "Music has been vital to my sobriety and hope anyone who struggles with any kind of life altering malady can find hope in our songs"
Sitting at the center of the post-hardcore revival comes Austin's genre defying rock outfit Nominee
, consisting of Chris Mclelland, Andrew Exchavarria, Cameron Kisel and Stephen Flynn. The band draw influences from past hardships, personal stories, and triumphant battles. They showcase their relentless ambition to create an alternative sound that is as dynamic, as infectious. With their passion to tell personal stories, the 4-piece developed a gritty, battered-and-worn style to their music that exudes energy, dedication, and triumph.
