About this Event

Bone Church is a heavy Rock & Roll band from New Haven, CT. Formed in 2016, they're primarily influenced by the era when rock was transforming into the earliest forms of heavy metal, but still had its feet planted in the blues. Classic bands like Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, and Hendrix provide the sonic inspiration; along with newer influences from the likes of Earthless, Uncle Acid, and Pallbearer, to name a few. Elements of Doom, Metal, and psychedelia are incorporated to complete the sound.

"They poured a foundation of solid, guitar-hewn, heavy concrete-like rock, then added skeletal rhythmic reinforcement akin to rebar. They moderate the density, and intensity, of both constructs with emotional temperament that’s riveted into place with vocal swagger."

Pinto Graham

Hailing from New Haven, Connecticut, southern rock trio Pinto Graham serves up psychedelic riffage that pulls audiences to their feet. The diverse musical experiences of bassist/vocalist Ant Reckart, guitarist/vocalist Andre Roman, and drummer Brian Harris make for a perfect meeting of groove, grit, and melody. With influences ranging from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Pentagram – both of whom they pay homage to with their band name – Pinto Graham will shake, rattle, and roll any stage they set foot on.

Formed in 2013 by Reckart and Harris, the band kicked into high gear with the addition of Roman in 2016. The three creative spirits came together from different paths, with Florida transplant Reckart drumming for industrial shock rockers Genitorturers for many years, Roman touring across the country on bass with punk outfit Murdervan, and Harris playing with Araca París and S26 in his native Argentina.

But this unusual combination of history and influences has become something greater than the sum of its parts. Pinto’s 2017 debut album Uno solidified their place in the underground music scene, with songs featured on many podcasts, blogs, and compilations including Alternative Control’s Volume Doom. The band has played live all over New England, and was especially proud to perform at a Florida benefit for St. Michael’s Soldiers alongside southern rock giants Molly Hatchet and Johnnie and Donnie Van Zant.

2019 promises to bring these “High Flyers” to new heights with the release of their second album, Dos. Recorded at Studio Wormwood in rural Connecticut with engineer Dave Kaminsky, Dos will be released on July 12, 2019 in CD and digital formats. Pinto will also return to Florida to perform at St. Michael’s Soldiers’ third annual benefit later this year, set to share the stage with .38 Special.

LIFT

Connecticut-based LIFT draws their influence from 90’s era hardcore. Formed in 2015, LIFT released their first EP Lessons Learned in Pain (2017) followed by the release of Harsh Light of the Truth (2018). LIFT is currently working on their first full-length.

LIFT landed themselves on No Echo’s 12 Newer Hardcore Bands to Check Out in 2019, writing, “Connecticut's LIFT have the goods to become one of the hardcore scene's biggest bands out today. Their musical DNA shows traces of the rhythmic thrust of Snapcase and Stillsuit, with the metallic leanings of Turmoil and early Vision of Disorder, albeit via a modern lens.”
