Wrought Iron Hex
Frustrated by yet another one of his bands ending, Jason Hurache Foster had decided to take a few years off from music and follow other passions. But the desire to write and create songs crept back in, and soon after he started to write music again with a recording project in mind. Acoustic jams started in the living room of his Allston condo almost weekly, and these often included his long time friend Scott Guthrie on bass. After a few years of honing these songs, it was time to make it a real band. The pair ran an ad on Craigslist looking for a drummer and quickly heard from Phil Grenier, a seasoned musician who resided just south of Boston. Phil had a lot of experience playing in various bands around New England and California, and became an invaluable addition to the band. With the trio now complete, the band started to rehearse the songs that Foster had written the past several years, and the music started to take its intended hard rock sound. As the band started recording sessions at The Bog in Allston, MA in 2011, discussions of taking the band from a recording-only project, to a live band where had, and shows where starting to be played. The studio recordings where completed in 2012, with the debut EP "III" released March 21st, 2012. The band played many shows around the northeast US in 2012-2013, before Phil retired from the band after the 11/9/13 show. In February 2014, well known Boston drummer Jack Snyder signed on as the replacement for Grenier, bringing his extensive playing and touring experience to the band. This version of the band played a few shows in the spring and early summer of 2014, before long time bassist Scott Guthrie left the band to move to the SE US. He has since been replaced by the talented and versatile Brian Keane on bass. This new rhythm section brought a fresh approach to the bands songs and performances. The addition of Jack and Brian also brought about a new phase in the band, adding a different flavor to the music, and a more collaborative approach to the songwriting. This version of Wrought Iron Hex Played regularly all over the Northeast US through June 2017. The band is now currently gigging with guest drummers as the search for a permanent replacement continues.
Silver Screams
Silver Screams
Silver Screams is a punk rock and roll band from Boston, MA. Like it nihilistic? How about three aging punkers playing the best music they know how to nobody, with no career aspirations, zero street cred, and no greater point whatsoever. It’s a power trio screaming into a void before they die, because they’re not dead yet. They have jobs and families and the whole thing is very nearly a complete waste of time.

Whatever. Every single one of us is going to die and Silver Screams is going to play some killer sets before it all goes down in flames.

The music draws from all the nowhere punks who sang to them in the cradle. The energy is a raised middle finger to everything they ever didn’t like and a cheer for everything they did. And the fact is, they’re pretty fucking good at what they do.

If you’re on the same trip, they recorded some songs for you, holing up in Black Mark Studios of Somerville, MA, until they came out with five new songs and a lot of empty beer cans. The Creep Joint Scratch ep hits May 10th. Pick it up, throw it on and judge them.
