Be sure to catch The Swills, joined by Hastngs, The Harvest and Byzantine Blue, as they celebrate their long-awaited second record "GodSwilling", recorded at the venerated Warehouse studios with the help of super-producer/engineer Ben Kaplan.

The SWILLS combine modern rock elements with blues and punk influences into a unique, hard-driving yet melodic sound. Together since 2006, they’ve made a name for themselves via high-energy shows that showcase their killer heavy riffs, catchy melodies, kick-ass rhythms and thought-provoking lyrics. The perfect solution to the mundane modern rock blues, The Swills are hitting the road this spring to spread the word. http://www.theswills.com

HASTINGS is an original five-piece Vancouver-based band specializing in a unique, danceable mix of classic funk, pop, rock and reggae styles. Looking forward while respecting the past, their tight, emotional and energetic live shows are an organic expression of the Lotus-land lifestyle we enjoy on the West Coast. http//www.reverbnation.com/hastings

The HARVEST mixes punk ethics, DIY personality and genuine passion for great music in a variety of styles from hard rock to blues and ska. Their influences are wide and varied from the Ramones and Sublime to No Doubt and Motley Crue, alternating elements of soul, rock, reggae, funk and percussive glam. http://www.theharvestrocks.com

BYZANTINE BLUE - With a heavy ethno-fusion sound that's a melodic, emotionally-driven synthesis of multi-cultural sounds, this Vancouver-based Balkan-gypsy-rock-trio was brought together by a love of Frank Zappa, south-eastern Balkan soul music and Saban Bajramovic, the most popular and influential Serbian singer of his generation. http://www.facebook.com/byzantineblue
