Snake Skin Prison w/ Saint Carmen, Rockett Queen & Echo Temple
May 11, 2013 @ 8:00 pm - 1:00 am
Saint Carmen is a hard rock band with a modern sound and face-melting intensity; A new breed of ‘mainstream’ rock that knows no limits. Things started kicking off when the band found it’s current line-up in September 2012. With Avery Krueger on lead vocals/guitar, Dylan Cash shredding out the lead guitar, Buck Blackerby on bass, and Jake Bellamy smashing the skins and singing the back-up, Saint Carmen was built on a recipe for a hellacious wall of rockin’ sound.
Snake Skin Prison
Rock 103.9’s Home Brew Top Shelf pick for March Snake Skin Prison was born from the distilleries of Hard Southern American Rock N Roll. Based out of Austin Texas, SSP is playing the entire state of Texas and building a strengthened fan based. You want it hard, loud, and fast…well look no further…this is the best unsigned music in America. I dare ya to disagree
Not every band can boast the title “Best unsigned band in America”… Rockett Queen can. Rockett Queen quickly earned the title “Best Unsigned Band in America” by winning the contest that ultimately resulted in their hit single “The Next Big Thing” to be featured in the full length film “John Tucker Must Die.” This earned them a spot on the soundtrack along with The All American Rejects, Cartel, Ok Go and many more. With that notoriety, it wasn’t long before MTV beckoned and featured “The Next Big Thing” in their hit TV show “Newport Harbor”. Following the success of “The Next Big Thing,” Rockett Queen quickly raced back into the studio to record their sophomore EP “Kiss and Tell,” which has already been declared “the best thing Rockett Queen has released to date.” The track “Since You Been Gone” gained notoriety and received heavy airplay on Top 40 radio station The Breeze, where it continues to thrive.
Echo Temple contain some members that may be familiar to those on the Houston scene, including Tom Calandra of Z-Lot-Z. Immediately the band set the standard with their prog influenced Metal with an edge. Having never heard the band before, I didn’t know what to expect, nor can I tell you the song titles. However, their set was nearly flawless in execution. There were definitely some professionals on the stage that night. What really caught my attention was the cover of Evergrey’s, “A Touch of Blessing.” I was floored by the power of that cover alone, which admittedly forced me to pay more attention to the band afterward. Echo Temple are a band to watch for. Tom’s vocals are serene, yet delivered with a hidden power that will knock you back. The dual guitarists are incredibly talented masters of their instruments, and deliver precision solos and emotional melodies in ever song. The drummer and bassist hold the songs together with a varied backbone. Look for Echo Temple at several LSM showcases in 2013.
