Them Evils
Them Evils
THEM EVILS are a late-night joyride through rock and roll's seedy underbelly. Born in the
shadows of neon vice and nocturnal living in Las Vegas, nurtured by the proximity of
Hollywood's famed Sunset Strip, and cradled in the same Orange County, CA home that has become synonymous to punk attitude and hard-driving rock history, the leather-and-black clad trio pen unapologetic songs that bristle with a nasty energy befitting their name.

Inspired by equal parts of rock giants like Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, and Queens Of The Stone Age, among others, guitarist/vocalist Jordan Griffin, bassist Jake Massanari and drummer David Delaney pay tribute to their roots with every crushing note on their latest self titled EP, a 4-song homage to the unholy goodness that is THEM EVILS.

"We pretty much made our own scene," Griffin says. "We started out doing straight up rock and roll, and that's what we're still doing... that said, we're always evolving.”

Griffin and Massanari moved to Orange County, CA from Las Vegas in 2013, with nothing else to fall back on. It was there they met Delaney - the final piece of the THEM EVILS puzzle they'd been trying to complete for years. Two EPs later (their self-titled release and the lineup's Cold Black Love debut)... They have toured with bands such as The Pretty Reckless, Alter Bridge, Zakk Sabbath and 10 Years while sharing stages at festivals with some of the biggest names in Rock n’ Roll. They are set to embark on a west coast run with Red Sun Rising and their own headlining tour this spring. They will play Welcome To Rockville, Caroline Rebellion and Rock On The Range this year as well as release another EP!

Buckle up, this is gonna be one hell of a ride...
Desert Suns
Desert Suns
In that space where psychedelia, blues-rock, doom and sludge coalesce, it’s there you’re likely to find Desert Suns. Formed in late 2013, from the outset the Californian four-piece demonstrated a versatility rarely seen amongst their contemporaries. In no time at all they wrote, recorded and released their debut single ‘Burning Temples’ in January of 2014, and by the summer they had already started to unload an arsenal of new sounds.
Their self-titled debut was released on August 16th 2014 and reassured fans that they were far from one hit wonders. Containing haunting lyrics of alienation with compelling hooks, an addictive and atmospheric energy and heavy, pulsating beats, fans of early ’70s proto-metal acts such as Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Blue Cheer will appreciate the classic grooves exhibited here on storming tracks like ‘Ten Feet Down’ and album closer ‘Run Through My Roots’.
Gaining even more attention in late 2014 after their song ‘Space Pussy’ was featured on Classic Rock Magazine’s cover mount compilation The Levee Breaks and sharing an unmistakable affinity with modern stoner rockers bands such as Fu Manchu and Graveyard.
Mastered by renowned multi-instrumentalist Tony Reed (Mos Generator/Stone Axe) at HeavyHead Recording Co in Washington, Desert Suns will be released in North America on 15th January on vinyl/CD through Ripple Music and on LP in the UK through HeviSike Records.
