England's Basement make melodic hardcore punk-influenced music that brings to mind a kind of '90s D.I.Y. sound. Formed in Ipswich in 2010, the band features lead vocalist Andrew Fisher, guitarist Alex Henery, guitarist Ronan Crix, bassist Duncan Stewart, and drummer James Fisher. A year after getting together, they released their debut album, I Wish I Could Stay Here, on Run for Cover Records. In 2012, Basement delivered their sophomore album, Colourmeinkindness. That same year, following a tour of the United States, the bandmembers announced they were going on indefinite hiatus. Despite the inactivity, Basement's music continued to find an audience, a fact that did not go unnoticed by the band. Subsequently, they regrouped for the well-received 2014 EP Further Sky.



Zeal and Ardor

The black metal, blues, and African American fusion of Zeal & Ardor's music is the brainchild of musician Manuel Gagneux. He moved from his native Switzerland to New York, and took up the moniker Zeal & Ardor, having previously released music under the name Birdmask. The chamber pop of his Birdmask recordings is a far cry from the darker, heavier music he created for his Zeal & Ardor debut Devil Is Fine.

Known for their abrasive and confrontational performance style akin to that of Death Grips combined with the punk-infused raucousness of outfits such as Black Flag, Ho99o9 are an alternative hip-hop group based in Los Angeles, California. Hailing from Newark, New Jersey, the project was started by the group's frontrunners, theOGM and Eaddy, in 2012. Both were initially involved in a performing arts collective known as the NJstreetKLAN, where they began to flex their creative muscles. Throughout their teen years, the pair developed a deep-rooted interest in pioneering artists of hip-hop such as Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and DMX.



The Glorious Sons

Glorious Sons' hardscrabble tales come naturally. A high-spirited rock band with blue collar roots, they truly found themselves when Brett quit school in 2013 to join them as lead singer. Subsequent years of hard touring and hard partying — sometimes in places so sketchy, as Brett puts it, "There was no electricity in the building" — provided fuel for the songs on Young Beauties & Fools.

Yungblud is the hip-hop-influenced rock outfit created by musician Dominic Harrison. Born in Yorkshire, England, the singer/songwriter was raised in a musical family. His father was a vintage guitar dealer and his grandfather played with T. Rex. Influenced by Bob Dylan, the Clash, and the Beatles, he played guitar and sang from a young age. In 2017, when he was 19, he issued his debut single, "King Charles," a genre-blending protest song that fell somewhere between early Arctic Monkeys, Jamie T, and Rat Boy. He followed with the song "I Love You, Will You Marry Me," which incorporated some dub and grime elements. A major-label deal with Geffen yielded Yungblud's first collection, an eponymous 2018 EP that included his first two singles alongside three new tracks. His debut full-length, 21st Century Liability, appeared in May of that year and made a solid chart showing in Australia and Belgium. Yungblud returned in the early part of 2019 with "Loner" and "11 Minutes," the latter of which was a collaboration with Halsey and Travis Barker.
