WHO:             NEON TREES

Like their name, Neon Trees are a combination of slick pop hooks and sturdy organic rock, both melodic and hard-hitting, their anthems of adolescent angst, longing, love lost and found, delivered with the kind of heart-on-the-sleeve passion that only comes from hard work and commitment. Their Mercury/Island Def Jam debut, Habits, produced by Tim Pagnotta, features the hit single, “Animal.” Visit http://www.fameisdead.com/1983/ for details.


Founded in 2001, Minus the Bear earned immediate attention with their distinctive spastic prog-pop hybrid, all serrated rhythms, swirling synths, and guitarist Dave Knudson’s multi-layered, pedal-hopping acrobatics.  2007’s PLANET OF ICE was followed by the band’s most intensive touring thus far, repeatedly traveling the US, as well as Europe, Australia, and Japan.  Visit http://bighassle.com/minusthebear/index.htm for details.
