All Time Low: Pop-punk band All Time Low takes their name from the lyrics of popular pop-punk band New Found Glory. All Time Low has become a favorite at Warped Tour dates and performed concert dates at some of the biggest festivals around the world. All Time Low is mixing it up on their upcoming tour dates by playing places that you wouldn't normally think to have shows.

Guitarist and lead singer Alex Gaskarth, guitarist Jack Barakat, bassist Zack Merrick, and drummer Rian Dawson all met while attending high school in Baltimore, Maryland. All Time Low recorded the EPs The Three Words to Remember in Dealing with the End and Put Up or Shut Up, as well as their debut LP, The Party Scene all before graduation day. Immediately after graduation, All Time Low began playing tour dates across the country as their music crept towards mainstream popularity. In 2007 All Time Low released their second album, So Wrong, It's Right, and the single "Dear Maria, Count Me In" went gold without much promotion or airplay. The members of all time low reached the next plateau of success with their 2009 album, Nothing Personal which became the band's best-selling and highest charting album to date. The album debuted at #4 on the charts and was followed by an appearance in the Alice in Wonderland soundtrack. By this time, All Time Low was headlining concert dates on the Warped tour, as well as supporting some of the biggest names in music -- like Eminem and The Flaming Lips -- on festival tour dates.

Taking Back Sunday: Taking Back Sunday was largely responsible for the mainstream post hardcore movement in the early 2000s. Their combination of hardcore and pop punk has produced hit records and generated engaging tour dates for nearly ten years, with no plans of stopping soon. Taking Back Sunday's eponymous album has just released and is already garnering some well deserved buzz. There is also lots of talk about the group's current tour dates in 2011 which extend until the end of summer.

Taking Back Sunday was formed in 1999 by Eddie Reyes, who had already been a pioneer in the hardcore scene in Long Island. After numerous tour dates with like-minded bands around New York, Taking Back Sunday signed with Victory Records and released their debut album, Tell All Your Friends, in 2002. The album contained a number of hit singles (including "Cute Without the 'E' (Cut from the Team)) that brought Taking Back Sunday their first taste of mainstream success. The band experienced even more success with Louder Now in 2006, which contained a lot of the energy audiences experience on tour dates and shot to the top of the Billboard charts.

Taking Back Sunday's latest self-titled album already has critics and fans talking, in particular the singles "Faith (When I Let You Down)" and "This Is All Now." The album has delighted fans (and the band's members) that were disappointed in their previous album, New Again. Part of fans' exuberance is the fact that the album was recorded using Taking Back Sunday's classic lineup of John Nolan, Adam Lazzara, Eddie Reyes, Shaun Cooper, and Mark O'Connell; the same lineup that recorded their first hit album, Tell All Your Friends.

Taking Back Sunday is celebrating their successful new album with ongoing tour dates in 2011, currently in the western United States as of late June. US concert dates in 2011 will visit many a House of Blues before heading to Ireland on August 21. Taking Back Sunday will visit the UK (including the Reading and Leeds Festival), Italy, and Germany before concluding their 2011 tour dates on September 7. For all of Taking Back Sunday's tour date information, just visit Eventful.

New Found Glory: For the past fifteen years the Coral Springs, Florida, pop-punk act have transcended trends and gimmicks by writing songs from the heart that listeners of all ages can relate to.

Four Year Strong: Four Year Strong is a five-piece American pop punk band from Worcester, Massachusetts.

3/5 of the current band members were in the original lineup that dates back to 2001. Dan, Alan, and Jake all attended Doherty Memorial High School in Worcester, Massachusetts, and eventually ended up meeting through introductions from mutual friends. After the departure of the original bassist, 2 or 3 years after formation, the band met Joe, eventually asking him to fill the position as the band's bassist. Four Year Strong's earlier compositions never included any keyboards, or synthesizers, but soon began to incorporate its sound into their music. The band cycled through many keyboardists, but recruited their current keyboardist Josh Lyford in late 2006. Over the past years, the band has done multiple national tours, sharing the stage with such bands as The Starting Line, Hellogoodbye, From First to Last, Every Time I Die, Meg & Dia, Hidden in Plain View, All Time Low, Mayday Parade, New Found Glory, Bayside and Steel Train. The band will be touring in February-April 2009 as part of the Taste of Chaos tour, alongside Thursday, Bring Me the Horizon, Pierce the Veil, and Cancer Bats. They are going on the Summer Co-Headline Tour w/ Set Your Goals guests include Set Your Goals, Fireworks, The Swellers, Polar Bear Club, A Loss For Words, Drive A, & Grave Maker from July 16 to August 26, 2009

The band's 2007 release Rise or Die Trying hit #31 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart in 2007.[2] Four Year Strong was signed to Decaydance in February 2008.[3]

On July 21st, 2009, Four Year Strong released an album of covers from the 90's. The album features guest appearances from Keith Buckley of Every Time I Die, Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes, and JR and Buddy of Less Than Jake.

We The Kings: We the Kings is one of the latest up-and-coming pop punk bands to enter the mainstream, even with only two albums out. Over the past several years, We the Kings have been found on tour dates with some of the biggest names in pop punk and hardcore, including The Maine, Never Shout Never, and Mayday Parade. Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of We the Kings' latest album, Sunshine State of Mind, on July 12. In the meantime, the band can be found on their summer concert schedule in 2011, including tour dates in Australia.

Guitarist and lead singer Travis Clark, guitarist Hunter Thomsen, his younger brother and bassist Drew, and drummer Danny Duncan had all been friends since they were kids. In 2003, they decided to form a band and began posting tracks on Purevolume four years later. In no time at all, We the Kings released their eponymous album which contained the hit, breakout single, "Check Yes Juliet." This led to major tour dates in support of bands like Boys Like Girls and Cobra Starship, in addition to performing on the 2008 Warped Tour.

We the Kings released Smile Kid in 2009, which was praised for its broadening of the band's sound. The album did well on the charts and launched We the Kings into the next echelon of fame. They played tour dates on the 2009 Bamboozle Roadshow Tour , which was followed by their first headlining tour dates on the Hot Topic Presents: Take Action Tour. We the Kings continued to headline tours, including dates with I See Stars and their friends The Maine and Never Shout Never.

We the Kings are heading out on more headlining tours this summer on their 2011 concert schedule. Beginning on July 7, We the Kings will embark on a number of tour dates throughout the US, including mall concerts and appearances at Six Flags theme parks. They will be supported by The Summer Set, The Downtown Fiction, Hot Chelle Rae, and Action Item before heading to Australia on August 27. We the Kings will only play five tour dates in Australia before their 2011 concert schedule ends on September 1, so buy your tickets today!

Breathe Carolina: Kyle Even and David Schmitt of Breathe Carolina are putting the rock back in electronic music. The Denver duo rose to fame thanks to GarageBand software and MySpace that have promoted their unique blending of modern rock and a variety of synthesizers, and even a keytar. After only four years as Breathe Carolina, the duo is already headlining huge tour dates and their 2009 album, Hello Fascination, shot to the top of the dance charts. Fans who enjoyed the aforementioned album are overwrought over the recent release of Breathe Carolina's third album, Hell Is What You Make It. In honor of the record's release, Breathe Carolina is embarking on summer tour dates in 2011 with special guests, Scream It Like You Mean It.

David Schmitt and Kyle Even knew each other from separate bands that often played together in Colorado. After their respective band broke up, the two formed their own band in 2007 and began tinkering with music on GarageBand. The songs eventually gained fantastical plays on MySpace and Breathe Carolina began playing local tour dates. GarageBand also played a pivotal role in recording their debut studio album, It's Classy, Not Classic, which shot to #5 on the dance charts and #6 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.

The album brought Breathe Carolina their first headlining tour dates, which continued up until recording began for their second album, Hello Fascination. The record performed even better on the Billboard charts and was even more well received by fans and critics. This led to an even busier concert schedule that included tour dates on the Warped Tour and performances on talk shows like The Jay Leno Show. Breathe Carolina's latest record, Hell Is What You Make It, has shown an evolution and maturity of the band; much to the delight of fans and audiences. The lead single, "Blackout", has already caused a stir thanks to MTV and fans are looking forward to the upcoming tour dates in 2011.

Breathe Carolina's upcoming North American tour dates in 2011 -- featuring Scream It Like You Mean It -- begin on July 15 in Seattle and will head South to circle around the edge of the US and Canada. The concert schedule will last roughly two months, with 2011 tour dates ending on August 26 in Breathe Carolina's hometown of Colorado. Don't miss this opportunity to catch these rising stars on their 2011 tour dates and buy your tickets on Eventful today.

Miss May I: Miss May I is a Metal/Thrash band out of Dayton Ohio. We write our music to be technical and different. Assembled by 16 year old members we plan to show our talent for our young age as we thrive to become known and have a crowd who has as much dedication and fun as we do.

For Today: For Today has played with many national acts, too many to name. With a hard work ethic and a never ending goal to God's will and go as far as possible, For Today has completed many smaller tours as well as a 2 week midwest tour in April 2006 and a 4 week East Coust/South/Midwest tour in June 2006. They just finished recording 2 new songs to demo material for record labels with engineer Mike Dresch (Nodes of Ranvier, Bloodlined Calligraphy, War of Ages, etc.) and you can hear the new material on their myspace right now as well! For Today is still currently unsigned and doing everything by themselves but are shopping around for a record label to release a full length on and to tour full time to come to a city near you (if they haven't already!).

You Me At Six: Things for Josh Franceschi (17) Max Helyer, Chris Miller (18) and Matt Barnes, Dan Flint (19) have moved at a crazy rate in the past 18 months. With a Best British Newcomer nominee at the Kerrang Awards and support tours with Paramore, New Found Glory, The Audition and Angels And Airwaves to name but a few, these boys are now selling out shows across the UK on their own, catch them now!

VANNA: New England post-hardcore group Vanna have spent the last several years on a personal journey, and it's the experience of living on the road that has helped them to discover who they truly are. After years of relentless touring and musical growth, the band has found balance with A New Hope, both literally and figuratively.

Since the bands formation in 2004 Vanna – Chris Preece (vocals), Nick Lambert (guitar/vocals), Evan Pharmakis (guitar/vocals), Shawn Marquis (bass) and newcomer Chris Campbell (drums) – have built a strong following based on their killer live shows, which helped garner attention from Epitaph Records. The band signed with the label in 2005 and released their debut EP, The Search Party Never Came, the following year. With the EP's release came extensive touring until it was time to release their full length album, Curses, in 2007. Signaling growth sonically from the EP, Curses highlighted the band's metalcore side establishing them as one of the most interesting up-and-coming bands in the post-hardcore scene.

After almost two years of touring in support of Curses, the band returned to their roots and entered the studio with producer Steve Evetts (Every Time I Die, Story of the Year) to record A New Hope. With widening musical vision and hard-won experience under their belts, Vanna tackled the writing and recording of A New Hope with an added perspective and understanding.

"The writing and recording process naturally becomes more dialed and decisive with each record," explains Preece. "This record was approached with more of a group mentality. We talked a lot about what we liked and disliked about our last two releases, and each one of us were able to express ourselves in every step of the process."

"Steve Evetts was honestly just a great fit for us," adds Pharmakis. "For me personally it was great because I feel my relationship with the producer is important. If we mesh well it shows in the recording. The more comfortable you are the better you perform, the better you can concentrate and the better ideas you come up with as a team, as far as harmonies and melody ideas. And Steve was a great mentor. Chris Preece and I really meshed our lyric and vocal ideas together in a different way on this album and it worked out great. We definitely got to show a more melodic side on the record. I'd like to think this new record is like the perfect mix between our last two releases but with the sound we always wanted...and the skill it took time to earn."

The result of their collaborative efforts are twelve smartly written tracks that highlight the band's musical evolution, balancing the perfect fusion of emotive rock and perilous hardcore.

"Into Hell's Mouth We March," the first song released from A New Hope, rips the album open with the group's finest mix of melody and hardcore yet. While fans will appreciate Vanna's signature mix of weighty breakdowns and uplifting choruses, they'll also hear a progression in song-writing, gang vocals and more melodic singing from guitarist/vocalist Evan Pharmakis which makes for a much more accessible sound. Anthemic tracks like the first single "Safe To Say" and "We Are Nameless" bring the goosebumps, pushing with trashing guitars and pulling with captivating melody until you are chanting alongside the dueling vocalists.

"I feel like A New Hope is a fresh start," says Pharmakis. "This is exactly where we want to be, and I couldn't be happier with the direction of our music. This is Vanna, we are finally Vanna."

As Vanna looks forward with A New Hope, they continue down their unpredictable path of self discovery, continually growing and evolving with new purpose and A New Hope.

Funeral Party: Band Members: Chad Elliott- [Vocals] James Torres- [Guitar] Kimo- [Bass] Tim Madrid- [Drums] Danny Kid- [Percussion / Keyboards]

Hyro Da Hero: A hip hop storm’s brewing in Houston, Texas and at the center is Hyro da Hero. Combining incendiary rock-infused beats with a sharp, ruthless flow, Hyro spits venomous rhymes that stick, move and knock fools out cold.

He possesses a rockstar attitude and a flashy swagger primed to ignite both dance clubs and arenas.

Preserving hip hop’s integrity with a twist of humor, he calls out “Ringtone Rappers,” and begs for a rock rap revolution.

Coming out of the South Side of Houston, Hyro’s hunger is pure, and the scene won’t be able to contain him.

Matt Toka: My name's Matt Toka. I'm 22 years old. I was born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio. All these songs you hear have been recorded straight through live at my house. Life hasn't been easy, but whose is? When my Mom and Grandpa got locked up I knew I had to make a change... So thank you for taking the time to check out MATT TOKA MUSIC. I really want this page, to not just be about my music, but a vehicle for everyone to share their stories of struggle, heartache, life's challenges etc... It's so true "Everyone has a story". God knows if we can stick together, we can keep growing, learning, and living. Matt

New Empire: Homegrown indie-rockers New Empire are thrilled to announce the release of their highly anticipated sophomore album ‘Symmetry’, on Friday 16th September 2011 (distribution through MGM).

Over the past twelve months, New Empire has propelled into the spotlight of the Australian music scene, scoring international supports for Good Charlotte, Switchfoot, Owl City and Simple Plan.

New Empire’s latest single, ‘Give Me The World’, has been profiled on Channel V and secured airplay across Austereo’s national radio networks Radar Radio and the Today Network, along with spins on Sydney’s Triple M. The emotive track features a strong bass line and soaring vocals, drawing comparisons to 30 Seconds To Mars and Kings Of Leon. Recorded in Silverchair bassist Chris Joannou’s Central Coast studio, ‘Symmetry’ delivers a dynamic collection of tracks that showcases the band’s incredible instrumental finesse alongside exceptional songwriting skills.

Widely touted as one of the most exciting new acts to emerge on the local music landscape, New Empire’s acclaimed live performances are second to none, and have drawn praise from some of the country’s leading critics. The AU Review recently raved that “… after hearing (New Empire’s) album, I was expecting nothing less than a good show. And a good show it was – even running into a few notables tells me these guys are going to be the next big thing in Australian music. In fact, didn’t Powderfinger leave an opening for a soft-pop-rock band in the market? Because it wouldn’t surprise me if (New Empire) filled it”.

Since their inception in 2006, New Empire has firmly established themselves as a force to be reckoned with. The band’s track ‘Hero’ was included on the iTunes ‘Hotly Tipped For 2011’ compilation, and their recent ‘Here In Your Eyes’ national headline tour filled venues in Brisbane and Melbourne, wrapping up with a sell-out hometown show in Sydney.

The Used: The Used is an American rock band from Orem, Utah. Formed in 2001, the group signed to Reprise Records the same year and rose to fame in June 2002 after releasing their self-titled debut album.

Yellowcard: Pop-punk rockers Yellowcard rose to fame during the genre's rise in the early 2000s. Their album Ocean Avenue brought them to the forefront of the mainstream and launched the band into the upper echelons of fame. Yellowcard's international tour dates display an energy and comfortability rarely rivaled by bands today. After going on hiatus in 2008, Yellowcard has returned to the public eye with the release of When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes in March 2011. The band's return to music also includes current 2011 tour dates, which has come as a relief to Yellowcard's fans.

Yellowcard's first two albums -- Midget Tossing (1997) and Where We Stand (1999) -- featured a hardcore punk sound and did not feature the vocal stylings of Ryan Key. Key brought a more popular and accessible pop punk sound to their third album, One for the Kids, and The Underdog EP, which gained Yellowcard much more attention. It also scored the group a record deal with Columbia Records, which released Ocean Avenue in 2003. The album's title track began playing on MTV and soon became a smash hit, launching Yellowcard into stardom. The album became so popular that Yellowcard was immediately given two years worth of headlining tour dates, further building their fan base.

After numerous delays, Lights and Sounds was released in 2006 and featured an alt rock sound that strayed from their hit style. Yellowcard brought back a portion of that pop-punk sound on their 2007 album, Paper Walls, which was followed by another couple of years playing tour dates. The strain touring put on the band member's personal lives became a little too much, and Yellowcard went on an indefinite hiatus in 2008. In August 2010, Yellowcard announced that they were working on new tracks, which was followed by their first concert date in four years in November. When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes was released in March 2011 and has received rave reviews from critics and fans, who not only call it a comeback for Yellowcard but also their best album yet.

In true Yellowcard fashion, the band is currently performing a number of tour dates in 2011. Currently in the US, Yellowcard will play a handful of concert dates in South America beginning on July 24. On August 24, the band will begin touring Europe, with tour dates in nearly a dozen countries before heading to Australia on September 24. On October 8, Yellowcard will return to the US to canvass the country once more before ending their 2011 tour dates on November 18. With so many concert dates for Yellowcard this year, check Eventful for all the details.

Anti-flag: Anti-Flag is an American punk band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania known for their outspoken views on American government. Most recently, the band has focused criticism on the United States bailouts.

Anti-Flag was formed in 1988 by singer/guitarist Justin Sane and drummer Pat Thetic. During the band's early years, various guitarists and bassists moved in and out of the band, including Justin's sister, Lucy Fester. The band failed to solidify, and it fell apart after playing just one show.[2] In 1993, Justin and Pat reformed the band, now with Andy Flag on bass.

In 1996, the band released their first album, Die For the Government, on New Red Archives. Andy Flag left the band in the Summer of 1996 because of personal disputes between himself and Justin. For a brief time after Andy's departure in 1996, Sean Whelan of Pittsburgh band the Bad Genes filled in on bass. It was during this time that Sean was also playing in another band (57 Defective) with guitarist Chris Head, whom he introduced to the band.

In early 1997, Pittsburgh guitarist Chris Head began filling in on bass. In late 1997, Jamie Cock took over as the new bassist, moving Chris Head over to second guitar, which he preferred. The current line-up finalized in 1999 when Chris Barker, also known as Chris #2, replaced Jamie Cock on bass.

In 1998, the band released their second full-length release, Their System Doesn't Work For You. The album contained all nine Anti-Flag songs from the 1996 Anti-Flag/d.b.s. split album North America Sucks, as well as 10 new unreleased songs. The band decided to release the album independently, and Their System Doesn't Work For You became the debut release for the band's own A-F Records.

In 1999, Anti-Flag released the album A New Kind of Army on Go-Kart Records/A-F Records. The album addressed a wide variety of topics such as political corruption, racism, fascism, troubled youth, police brutality, and unity within the American youth. The cover art page unfolded into a poster featuring the phrase "Too smart to fight. Too smart to Die. Join now. A new kind of army."

In 2005, Anti-Flag signed a two-album record contract with major label RCA. The first of these two albums, For Blood and Empire, was released on March 21, 2006. The album's main focus is the band's criticism of the mishandling of the War on Terrorism by the United States Government. The song 'This Is The End (For You My Friend)' from the album For Blood and Empire is featured in the video game Madden NFL 2007 and on NHL 07. They finished their huge "War Sucks, Let's Party" United States headlining tour in April and work on some side projects like African Well Fund and Start to Finish MS now.

Throughout Anti-Flag's career, many other bands have been added to the roster of the band's own label, A-F Records. These bands include The Code, Pipedown, Much the Same, The Vacancy, The Unseen, Modey Lemon and more.

On November 25, Anti-Flag revealed on their homepage that their newest album was titled The Bright Lights of America. Produced by Tony Visconti (of David Bowie and Morrissey fame), it was released on April 1, 2008. The single "The Bright Lights Of America" was released exclusively on iTunes on February 12, 2008. A video of the song was released a couple of weeks later.

In 2008, on tour with Canadian band Billy Talent in Europe, Justin Sane and Chris #2 joined Billy Talent singer Ben Kowalewicz and guitarist Ian D'Sa, singing their new song "Turn Your Back" from their upcoming unreleased album. The two also play on the album and single versions of the song.

In March 2009, Anti-Flag were forced to cancel a series of tour dates after Justin Sane broke his collar bone landing awkwardly whilst jumping off the stage to stop a fight which broke out in the crowd at the UEA LCR in Norwich.

Beginning on September 30, 2008, Chris #2 began to post on his blog, at nowarwithoutwarriors.blogspot.com[2], that the band had begun to work on their seventh studio album. On December 2, Anti-Flag began to record their record, starting with "The Economy is Suffering... Let It Die".

On March 31, 2009, Anti-Flag announced that their next CD, The People or the Gun, would be released on SideOneDummy on June 9, 2009. On Anti-Flag.com, the first track of the album "Sodom, Gomorrah, and Washington DC (Sheep in Shepherd's Clothing)" can be listened to. On May 1, 2009, the band performed a full set of The Clash covers at Hoodwink in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

I Fight Dragons: I Fight Dragons is Chicago's finest (and quite possibly only) NES-Rock band. They have very detailed delusions of grandeur, most of which include gross misuses of Nintendo products in combination with music in the Popular Rock genre.

This February, they sold out Chicago's Elbo Room as they self-released their debut EP, "Cool Is Just A Number," which has since gone on to chart nationally at 169 on the CMJ College Radio charts, and been featured across Commercial Radio formats in Chicago, on Alternative Rock (Q101), Top 40 (101.9 The Mix), and Independent Rock (93 XRT), as well as getting into rotation on KTCL (93.3) in Denver.

They use a talking computer a lot, or possibly a talking computer uses them a lot. They were selected as the Best new Chicago band for 2009 by Metromix.com. There are several TVs at all of their shows, occasionally showing people playing videogame versions of their songs, while the band plays the songs live on videogame controllers, and everyone's heads explode.

They played a date on this year's Warped Tour. They tend to release free music to their email list every couple weeks (but you already know, since you're on it, right?). This fall, they'll be branching out from Chicago to tour the nation for 2 months with mc chris. All in all, there are 6 of them, and at least one of them is really really cool, but they haven't figured out which one yet. It's Hari.

"I FIGHT DRAGONS is a High-Def concert experience influenced by an 8-bit video game dream world. They are both an audio and visual powerhouse to have at the club" -Brian Bender, Elbo Room Chicago Talent Buyer/General Manager

“I Fight Dragons’ EP, “Cool is Just a Number,” offers such catchy hooks that “irresistible” feels like an understatement.” -Metromix.com

champagne champagne: i'll keep this short. pearl dragon and me, dj gajamagic, joined forces in august of '07 to form Champagne Champagne. after a few months of writing songs thomas gray joined us two on stage to complete our line up. the only goal for our group is to make music that makes us feel good. i must say they are some feel good tunes.

Born of Osiris: BORN OF OSIRIS is said to be "an epic mix of intricate and memorable melodies with challenging time signatures that still hold an infectious groove, all while maintaining sheer, tasteful brutality."

Transit: hey we are Transit we play music that's about it.

"Transit show so much potential on their debut here, the Let It Out EP, it's disgusting. You can tell something's about to break out within their hybrid of influences (most notable being Fairweather, Hot Water Music and a touch of Saves the Day), but they're just on the cuff of letting it out -- whatever it is, it's an incredibly unique, heartfelt and earnest type of emotional pop-punk." -Punknews.org

Falling In Reverse: Ronnie Radke (vocals), Nason (Nasty-bass/vocals), Nick (Drums), Anthony (guitar/vocals), and Jacky (guitar).

WAX: WAX formed in 1991 in Los Angeles, California. The original, and reunited line-up consists of Joe Sib (vocals), Dave Georgeff (bass), Tom "Soda" Gardocki (guitar), and Loomis Fall (drums).

WAX is well-known for the MTV "buzz clip" song and video "California," directed by Spike Jonze. The video depicts a man on fire calmly running in slow motion, and was quickly banned from daytime airplay on MTV.

WAX released their first album, What Else Can We Do? on Caroline Records in 1992. WAX's surf-inflected punk rock was compared to the Ramones and Pixies.

In 1995, WAX issued its major-label debut, Thirteen Unlucky Numbers on Interscope Records. WAX licensed the song "Who Is Next" to Nike for a commercial which featured Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi.

WAX went their separate ways in 1995.

Joe Sib later joined the band 22 Jacks; Dave Georgeff has played with the Los Angeles indie rock combo, Sign Of The Fox; Soda once fronted Soda & His Million Piece Band, and later, Rose's Pawn Shop; Loomis has released two records with his band, Loomis, and he's a recurring cast member in the Jackass and Wildboyz TV shows and movies.

WAX is amped to be playing together again - still keeping the punk spirit moving in the right direction.
