Big Jesus
Big Jesus
Below each trudging riff and well beyond the dense ashes of the low-end, a grinding melody appears -- the core essence of Big Jesus. The band was formed from a non serious idea of C.J. Ridings and things just kept snowballing after a few songs were hosted online. Line ups shifted and members rotated until Spencer Ussery, Tommy Gonzalez, and Joe Sweat completed the roster that would end up penning a deal with Mascot Label Group. Big Jesus is a balancing act of heavy, pretty, bludgeoning, soothing, aggressive, and droning tones that are put together in a way that is distinctly their own.
On Better Terms
On Better Terms
On Better Terms is a melodic hardcore band out of Dallas, TX. OBT fuses driven, groovy melodies and jazzy rhythm with harsh yells and spoken word vocals. With influences such as La Dispute, Troubled Coast, and Touche Amore, they look to bring a unique vibe to the DFW scene.

OBT formed in 2013 when vocalist Andrew brought his poems to guitarist Alex one day. They began writing as much as possible while seeking full time members. The band has been playing shows consistently in the Dallas area and surrounding states since forming, opening for bands including A Lot Like Birds, Worthwhile, Hotel Books, and more.

The band released their self titled EP in 2015 which includes heavy, thought provoking songs such as "Heaven Forbid, pt. 2" and catchy, upbeat songs like "Condition of Youth". The band emphasizes subjects such as accepting death, struggles with spirituality, enjoying youth, depression, and hope.

OBT has toured bordering states in the past year, playing DIY shows in Arkansas, OKC, Austin and Houston. Encouraged by regional support, they are looking to branch out as they will be hitting the east coast June 2017 to promote their new EP to be released in May. They will be joined by OKC hardcore band Valleys.

After tour, the band plans to continue writing music and playing regionally with ambitions of releasing a full length in 2018.
