This is going to be a great show! BlessTheFall, Silverstein, The Amity Affliction, Secrets and Heartist are going to be bringing their brand of metal core and rock to the Sun City. Plus, Heartist is one of my new favorite bands of 2014. If you haven't heard of this band before now, you're ears are in for a metalcore treat!

The station sometimes gets samplers from different record labels, like "Heavy Holidays" we got from Roadrunner Records. I saw some bands with singles that I already enjoyed, like Trivium, Dream Theater and The Amity Affliction so I decided to go ahead and grab one for myself. That's when I first heard Heartist.

Heartist is a great mix of both metalcore and the rock genres. The band started in 2011 with guitarists Tim Koch and Jonathan Gaytan along with drummer Matt Marquez, well known for his work in Grammy nominated Norma Jean. After, the duo were looking for lead vocals and found Bryce Beckley through Myspace. Bryce convinced his fellow Gamestop employee Evan Ranallo to join. The band waited 18 months, perfecting their blend of heavy guitars with Bryce's outstanding vocal range.

Their Ep, "Nothing You Don't Deserve" is available on iTunes right now and I highly recommend picking it up. You won't be disappointed. The band will be joining BessTheFall  at Tricky Falls on April 8th. Doors open at 6 PM with the show starting at 8 PM. Tickets are available through You can check out more at Heartist's Facebook page, Twitter, and their website .
