Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes
Having found himself at a creative impasse, Carter left Gallows after two era-defining albums, Orchestra of Wolves in 2006 and 2009’s Grey Britain, to embark on a new project, Pure Love. While Pure Love’s muscular melodic rock wasn’t a complete volte-face artistically, he found people weren’t ready to accept quite as sudden a change of direction from a performer who had been such an intrinsic part of the hardcore landscape. “I was really surprised at the amount of people that just couldn’t accept it,” he recalls. “It was such a shock to these people that they just could not digest it. They couldn’t even understand what happened, because to them, I am aggression, that’s all I was. So that 90 degree turn was a bit too abrupt. It’s like if you’ve got a car that’s going 100 miles an hour and you try and make a hairpin turn: you’re going to struggle.
Royal Republic
Witch Coast
Born out of a shared distaste for societal conventions, unnecessary chords, and literature, Witch Coast has been seducing DC’s occult underbelly with quick and dirty lo-fi pop earworms since 2014. The lean three-piece—featuring Messrs. Jon Weiss, Kevin Sottek and Jordan Sanders—has built a reputation in person and online for their no-nonsense approach to recording (“No Overdubs, No Masters”) and rowdy shows with international touring bands as diverse as Iceage, Porches, OBN IIIs, Bueno, Sitcom, and New Madrid. The Washington City Paper heralded their first EP, Witch Coast for President, as one of the best DC albums of 2014, despite sounding like it was “…possibly recorded on the auditory equivalent of a potato.
