SBRUBand name: Motorist
Genres: 90's influenced post-hardcore, rock
RIYL: Samiam, Failure, Killing Joke
Download debut album "Days of Young" at: http://motorist.bandcamp.com

Motorist is a rock band from Winston-Salem, NC, with former members of notable regional groups such as Codeseven, Love Craft, and Naked Angels - bands that represented various eras of North Carolina's diverse punk, hardcore and indie scenes. With that history, and extensive road experience, including tours with Coheed and Cambria, Anberlin and Boy Sets Fire, and music released through various labels including Volcom and Equal Vision, these guys have certainly done their homework. Forming in 2012, the band made quick work of a batch of hook-filled, riff heavy songs, and released a full length album, 'Days Of Young,' in the Spring of 2013. Motorist's music is nostalgic yet fresh, pulling elements from the best of the 90s post-punk era, but with a sound that's all its own. Days Of Young is full of high energy, punk infused songs, delivered by a powerful rhythm section that carries thick, crunchy rhythm guitars and harmonically pleasing leads and vocals. With power-house riffs and pop sensibilities, 'Days Of Young' is an urgent and passionate statement - offering an inspired new take on heavy music that will satisfy a wide range of listeners, both old and new.

In light of their debut album, pop punk band, Head Injuries announced a west coast tour called the Mission to Get Buck tour from July 19-August 3. Joining them on the last half will be Arizona's the Semester Review, which will be their first tour ever. Tour dates can be found at http://headinjuriesmusic.com/ RIYL: Blink-182, Teenage Bottlerocket, Descendents

Valencourt will be releasing their full-length debut "Quiet Siren" digitally on July 23, 2013 at all major digital retail outlets and will be available physically at shows and RI, MA, and NH Newbury Comics locations.
