Black Diamond
Wilkes-Barre, Pa.
Sounds like: DIY indie emo confusion with a dash of Dads and Title Fight creates their own noisy yet sad version of emo punk rock.
Fun fact: The members of Black Diamond have been called the most nervous band in punk rock. They're three harmless dudes, but by the end of their set, they're sweaty and bleeding.

Bristol, U.K
Sounds like: A chaotic melodic mess of '90s-tinged punk filled with energy.
Fun fact: The song “Babyccino” was named after a now infamous coffee-buying incident involving Lou unable to decide which beverage to buy; she asked to “try the babyccino,” which hilariously ended up being a tiny cup of milk and a marshmallow intended for babies. Maybe you had to be there.

Atlas Arrows
Binghamton, N.Y.
Sounds like: Indie alternative with a splash of math rock. It's melodic and soft harmonies combined with a smooth, inviting sound and bits of influence from The Strokes and Two Door Cinema Club.
Fun fact: The entire band shared a king-size bed in a less than ideal New Jersey hotel room. They also fit the entire band with equipment in a Chevy Caprice for a four-day tour.
