The YeahTones is the tenacious rock ‘n’ roll brain-child of bandleader and frontman Jake Pinto. Born of a natural healer and a business schemer (read: Florida man), Pinto’s deep-rooted lust for “peaceful” resistance has been long in the making. In 2012, Jake graduated from a private university with a degree in music, thousands of dollars in debt and an ample angst for the injustices of the world. Plagued by the typical anger and isolation of a 20 something New Yorker, Jake set aside his pricey jazz education in search of a new more liberating form of expression, enter The YeahTones.

On stage The YeahTones explode with punk energy to deliver the straightforward anguish of Jake’s unassuming songwriting. The band makes audiences thrash and scream then hands out a goody bag of catchy riffs and melodies to take home for later. They do all of this while wearing matching outfits. The Brooklyn-based band’s debut record, Eviction Notice, due out in October 2016 is the first presentation of their fearless, unpretentious rock ‘n’ roll. Keep an eye out for The YeahTones at a scuzzy rock bar near you.

"Singing songs about ghosts and dead gods with a little too much poppy falsetto and nowhere near enough fuzz." That's how the Virginia-based band describes their sound. Loud and heavy, but with dynamic shifts that lead into a world of groove and ambiance. Woodgrove came into being, as did the genre ’Paxil Pop,’ after a long summer of introspection in 2016. After a number of solo shows, Virginia native Jared Hall Garland (guitar/vox) was joined by Max (drums), Logan Leverett (guitar), and Jake Wentzel (bass) to move the band forward in a much heavier and all-encompassing direction. While Garland still plays solo shows with nothing but his suitcase drum, guitar, and voice, the full band has become the prime directive for the group. Focusing on a blend of ambience and groove, on polarizing songwriting and introspection, the four-piece welcomed the chaos that was 2017 by trying their best to play music as a coping mechanism.
