The Bouncing Souls
Melodic "sing along" pop punk band from New Jersey, originally formed in 1987 while the band members were still in high school. In 1993, They formed Chunksaah Records to release their early material. After heavy touring they eventually signed a deal with BYO Records in 1995, re-releasing their original LP + their sophomore LP. In 1997 they signed to Epitaph, where they stayed until 2006. Following that, they released some more material through Chunksaah before signing to Rise Records for their ninth full-length.
The band was formed by Greg Attonito (vocals), Pete Steinkopf aka The Pete (guitar), Bryan Kienlen aka Papillon (bass) and Shal Khichi (drums). The lineup has stayed consistent with the exception of the drummer. Original drummer Shal Khichi was with them until 1999, when he left and was replaced with Michael McDermott (2). In 2013 McDermott left and was replaced by George Rebelo.
US-American punk band formed in 1979 in Huntington Beach, California. The original lineup consisted of Jack Grisham (vocals), Ron Emory (guitar), Mike Roche (bass), and Todd Barnes (drums). Starting out as a politically-tinged hardcore punk band, the group moved towards horror themes and are considered by some as an influence on the early deathrock scene. The original lineup stayed together through 1983, recording 2 EPs and 2 LPs. Barnes and Grisham departed in '83 and were replaced by Mitch Dean and Joe Wood who was Grisham's brother-in-law, at the time. The Wood and Dean line up continued to record and release music throughout the 80s, shifting towards hard rock. Emory and Roche eventually dropped out, leaving the band with no original members. The original lineup reunited for some live gigs in 1991 but were unable to use the T.S.O.L. name since it was now controlled by Wood and Dean. Wood continued to tour under the T.S.O.L. banner throughout the 1990s, mostly in South America. In 1999 Emory, Grisham, and Roche regained control of the band name, and have continued to tour and occasionally record ever since. Barnes died from a brain aneurysm in 1999 after years of addiction issues.

2014 Rock ‘n’ Roll Rumble participant and Boston Music Award nominee for ‘Punk Artist of the Year’, Rebuilder rips open the preconceived stitches of punk rock to deliver their expansive, mature, and complex sophomore album, “Rock & Roll In America”. Their debut full-length on Panic State Records, “RNRIA” reinvents the self-proclaimed gnarly rock band’s sonic footprint, transcending the traditional three chord punk progression and showcasing the evolution of the band’s collaborative writing styles. Passionate, stirring and with a ‘never say die’ attitude in the same vein as Frank Turner or Against Me, Rebuilder’s live shows are packed with the resilient emotion of DIY music inspired by the honest truth, the instinctual reaction and the second wind that holds you back from the brink of exhaustion. Rebuilder hit the scene in 2013 and has opened for acts such as The Dropkick Murphys, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The Dead Milkmen and Stiff Little Fingers. ‘Rock & Roll In America’ was recorded, mixed and mastered by Jay Maas of Defeater at Getaway Studios in Haverhill.
