Formed in the summer of 2012 in Baltimore, MD, 3PM took their love of bands like Blink 182, Green Day, New Found Glory and Yellowcard and created their own melodic pop punk sound. An energetic, young group, their attitudes and outlook on life show through in their catchy and upbeat lyrics. Made up of diverse ages, their close friendship creates a unique and undeniable spark in their music that you'll instantly love.
The band was established when drummer Brandon Millman found a friend's younger brother, lead guitarist Scott Montgomery, and the two began playing together. The duo then turned to social media to find Brennan Stark, lead vocals and bassist. The group recorded their first album, Change of Plans, in early 2013, and simultaneously released their hit single, Perfect For Me. Currently in studio recording their second album with well known producer Paul Leavitt (All Time Low, Senses Fail, The Dangerous Summer), 3PM will be releasing the album in Summer 2014 and spending the summer and fall touring.
Others May Fall
The Great Heights Band
TGHB was formed in the spring of 2014 by singer/guitarist Neal Karkhanis and drummer Paul Martinez. After writing and recording a couple of songs, namely the fan favorite "Portland," the band added bassist Owen Brinser and singer/pianist Linette Gonzalez. The band's first show was at Charm City Art Space in Baltimore, Maryland where Karkhanis purchased 25 tickets himself for friends and family. The show went exceptionally well and with a little buzz in the area, Baltimore's premier punk venue, The Ottobar, asked TGHB to open up for indie rockers Hellogoodbye and Vacationer just two weeks later.

The band went on to record three more songs and released their debut EP, "Weird Thoughts," in the summer of 2014 along with a music video for "Portland." The "Portland" music video received a raving reception due to its quality of production, the song itself and the fact that the band made the video independent of a record label or any major funding. CI Records owner, Jeremy Weiss, took notice of TGHB after Karkhanis emailed him about re-releasing "Weird Thoughts" under the historic punk rock label. Known for its success with The Pink Spiders, The Juliana Theory, August Burns Red, Texas in July and others, CI Records was quick to make the band an offer.

In the fall of 2014, TGHB officially signed with CI Records, an announcement that did not come until February 2015. In November and December of 2014, the band entered the studio with Eric Taft at Buzzlounge Recording Studio in Beltsville, Maryland to begin work on the band's debut full length. The full length includes all 5 songs off the "Weird Thoughts" EP as well as 6 brand new tracks produced by Taft. Once the signing was announced, the label quickly put the band on the Launch Tour 2015 as an opener for The Venetia Fair and Icarus the Owl as well as the Launch Music Conference and Festival in Lancaster, Pennsylvania headlined by Atreyu, Alien Ant Farm, hed(pe) and others. Taft joined the band for much of the tour and in April 2015 officially joined the band as an additional singer/guitarist.

TGHB's debut full length entitled "Songs in Eastern Standard Timing" is due out this summer via CI Records. The full length is full of songs about the simple joys in life, love and loss, distance and necessity. Lyrically, the album is autobiographical in nature, speaking from a place of hopeless romance and optimism. Full of dual male/female lead vocals, loud guitars, synth leads and pop-driven choruses reminiscent of Weezer, The Hippos and Ok Go, TGHB is sure to become a summer favorite.

The band is performing at various festivals and shows all over the country the summer of 2015 and has already begun the writing and demoing process on a follow-up album to the debut full length.
The Stifled
Underdog Champs
Formed in the summer of 2014 as a recording project of Mark Bradley, Nick Jones, and other potential studio members, the group decided to play live in February 2015 with the lineup of Bradley on vocals, Jones on guitar/vocals, Josh Bailey on drums, Justin Mason on bass, and Tyler Mazza on guitar. The group released two singles, "Take Me Back" and "When the World Ends" which captured the essence of the original project. Recorded by only Bradley, Jones, and drummer James Adelsberger, the songs give listeners an idea of the potential of the full project with catchy yet refreshing pop/rock hooks.

"Picked Last", the band's most recent effort combines the influences of each member's past and present projects. The music is accompanied by 3 videos, each aiming to capture the high-energy live show of the band. The project is supposed to be "different from everything that's out there. It's an art project and an EP all at once", according to Bradley.
