Your Fearless Leader
San Francisco band, Your Fearless Leader (YFL), began in 2015 as the solo project of guitarist and lead singer, Marcus Ghiasi. What was initially a personal diary soon progressed into a novel, influenced by the inclusion of each musical element in the band today. Incorporating the sound of a small orchestra into their music, YFL challenges the generic flavor of indie rock to create something fresh and invigorating. The band’s diversity plays a critical role in their versatile sound, at times reminiscent of dancehall or baroque pop with stadium rock energy.

YFL released their debut EP, Retrospection, in 2015. “With its arresting violin lines, propulsive drums, and anthemic sonic arrangements, “Retrospection” provided a refreshing and distinct sound to a genre overly-cluttered in the digitized century.” -BayBridged

After spending three years writing and evolving their sound, YFL released back-to-back EPs titled RITES and Call My Name (2018). Its widespread embrace allowed them to cement their place as one of the Bay Area’s most prominent indie rock bands. They continue their trend of reinvention as they prepare for the release of new material later this year.
King Nun
King Nun exploded onto the London live scene two years ago, and remain one of the
capital's most exciting outfits, building up a fierce live following around the UK. After
releasing a string of hype-amassing singles in 2017, the four-piece decided to do things
differently to their peers, and took a considerable amount of time off to hone everything in.
They returned with a forward-thinking debut EP in tow, which staked their claim as a band
ready to explode in 2019. Released in November 2018 via Dirty Hit (The 1975, Wolf Alice,
Pale Waves), I Have Love was a remarkable release, tackling a multitude of issues, from
dysfunctional family life to abuse and groping at gigs, all centred about love's many forms,
but put through the chaotic punk filter that defines the band and their influences. It's an
informed, meticulously crafted release that sets the tone for what the Wandsworth quartet
can do when they release their debut album later this year.
Down and Outlaws
Rock and roll isn't a sound. It's not an attitude. It's a need, it's a fight, it's the saving grace in the wake of a broken heart or something lost.

If you ask what Down and Outlaws sound like, someone might mention The Stooges or Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. But at some level, such comparisons miss the point. Call these San Franciscans bluesy, rootsy, dirty; it doesn't really matter. Down and Outlaws are a rock and roll band, pure and simple.

These days, when the definition of rock and roll is increasingly uncertain, the tight-knit quartet's energy, authenticity, and blistering live performances are impossible to ignore or forget.

With strong collective songwriting, Kyle Luck's guitar work, Jon Carr and Chris Danzig's gut-busting rhythm section, and Peter Danzig's howling vocals, Down and Outlaws play because they’ve got no choice. Music has saved the D&O, and they hope to return the favor.
