      Dirtbags get WET at Michigan Metalfest!

      Dirtbags get WET at Michigan Metalfest!

      COME RAIN OR FLOOD.... 

      Last Saturday, DIRTBAGS from all over the U.S. came together under the cold, rainy sky for the wettest, muddiest Michigan Metalfest to date. Don Jamieson (Comedian, That Metal Show) joined us for the day, hopped on stage to introduce BACKLASH (DIRTBAG song contest winners) on the DIRTBAG Stage, and also did a short comedy set on the main stage while the crowd waited to watch TALLAH.

      Before the weather went to hell.
      The CONVALESCENCE - DIRTBAG

      Early in the day, long-time DIRTBAG Artists THE CONVALESCENCE brutalized the stage, throwing bloody hearts, and shooting water rifles into the (already wet) crowd. BACKLASH ripped out an epic 2-part set, which was interrupted by a lightning delay.. but we got a rockin’ on-stage interview of them while we waited for the sky to clear (STAY TUNED).

      Due to a series of unfortunate events, the DIRTBAG Stage was shut down mid-day, and our Endorsed Artists, REDEFIND and CASKET ROBBERY were unfortunately unable to perform.

      DIRTBAGS showed out in FULL-FORCE at Michigan Metalfest this year. Festival metalheads showed their true grit and love of the genre, as they spun and flipped their soaking wet hair in the cold-pouring rain.. all. day. long.

      Artist Bio: Zacky Sickness started in 2018 after Zack moved back to his hometown of Joseph, OR and couldn’t find a band wanting to do his style of music. Which made him starting to make instrumentals on “Apple Loops” as he worked on his first solo album. At the very end of writing that he looked up “Royalty free heavy metal instrumentals” and found Jacob Lizotte. Zack had him make 2 tracks for his first album, and has been working with him ever since. Creating 2 albums together Now Zack has just released a brand new E.P. With Jacob Lizotte once again handling all the instrumentals and mixing and mastering. The E.P. “Storm the Gates” is once again exploring many different genres and influences in both lyric wise and musically. Zack explored new boundaries with songs such as “Life is Just a Airport” where he challenged himself to write a fun drinking Irish punk song. Zack has said about the song “I’ve gotten comfortable with writing about my depression and anxiety, and often feel if I try to write something happy or uplifting it comes off as corny, so I wanted to challenge myself and make a song that people can party and have a fun time to.” Another song where he tried something new was the song “Zoltar’s Fortune” which is a song about a fortune card he got from a “Zoltar” machine that was eerily accurate to what he was going through in life, and the first verse of the song comes straight from the fortune card he got. Songs like “Storm the Gates” talk about war, while “Will Anyone Be There?” Talks on self doubt and being unmotivated by people ignoring the songs he puts all his effort in, while “The Liars and Thieves” is about the sharks of the music industry, about people who prey on small musicians with broken promises all to get their money.

      Dirtbag Endorsed Artists - Sinsation Vampiric Metal

      Dirtbag Endorsed Artists - Sinsation Vampiric Metal

      Dirtbag Endorsed Artists Sinsation
      Sinsation are a vampiric metal band like no other. These gothic madmen met playing in different bands at the Zombie Prom in 2019 and rapidly came to realize that the dark spirits of the universe wanted them to work together. They quickly assembled a stellar lineup out of the creative primordial ooze of the local scene and crafted a sound that reflected the influence of their sonic heroes ranging from classics like Motorhead and Slayer to rock gods like Joan Jett by way of modern masters Avatar and Halestorm. This rapidly developed into a style that was wholly their own.
      Managed by the one and only Jaxxrock, Sinsation quickly saw success, playing the legendary Viper Room in Hollywood and winning the Metal Meeting in Arizona. At the same time they started to release singles with videos, even through the madness of the coronavirus pandemic. This slew of successes lead to endorsements by Solar Guitars, Felton Guitars, InTune Guitar Picks War-Core Pick Ups, and Shroeder Cabs. It also earned them a deal with TerrorCrew Productions and Artillery Music Group AMG who seek to help the band grow through their next few steps towards vampiric ascension.
      Now, the band is gearing up to film another pair of music videos to help their promote their upcoming EP. However, this is only just starting to lay the groundwork for a concept album to come. This is all happening as the band continue to get heavier and lean into crafting pulverizing and face melting good times. With big things on the horizon and a legion of triumphs in the rearview mirror, none will be able to slow the mighty Sinsation. All that’s left to do is join their undead horde and watch as these thrashers take on the globe!

      Dirtbag Block of Rock [1967]

      Dirtbag Block of Rock [1967]

      Portland-based four piece hard-rock band, 1967, runs on blood pumping energy—it’s all denim jackets, tattoos, and the aches of bumping up against people in a thrashing crowd. Their performance strips away excess and maximizes the mantra of living life on life’s terms. For fans of the Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Pennywise, and Breaking Benjamin, there’s a new band to blast in your Camaro. That is, as you’re leaving your boring life behind and driving to an incredible view.

      1967 is the brainchild of Jaime Reynolds, who leads on guitar and vocals. Today, the band includes a blend of southwest and pacific northwest-based musicians. The result is a massive sound unashamed in its mission—to release the tension of life with the spirit of rock, in all its hooky glory. 1967 tours the northwest and southwest regularly, offering polished and memorable live performances.

      Listen to 1967 anywhere music streams online or purchase merchandise by emailing jkrprozack@gmail.com with your personal request of custom made 1967 merchandise.

      Their latest 5-song EP produced by 40 million record selling producer, John Kurzweg (Creed, Puddle of Mudd, Godsmack) will be out soon. Stay tuned…
