We Killed the Lion



Chicago quintet Polarizer creates what they call “loud, spacey epic rock,” combining heavy walls of sound with echo-laden, introspective passages and progressive-rock sensibilities.

Moon - 10 Year Anniversary

Moon is heavy, melodic, spacious, majestic, propulsive, dark, rock. Moon is chiming echo-laden guitar, post rock bass, propulsive drumming, shifting time signatures, and haunting, ethereal vocals. Sonic reference points include Sunny Day Real Estate, Silversun Pickups, Circa Survive, Mogwai, Porcupine Tree, Rush. Moon formed in late 2008 when drummer Chris Schneberger found guitarist/singer David Azizinamini and bass player Pat LaRose. The three immediately found a chemistry and interest in crafting songs that were both heavy and melodic, challenging yet accessible. After a year, Moon began playing shows at clubs around Chicago. In 2012 they teamed with Mike Hagler of Kingsize Sound Labs to produce their debut full-length, “Finding and Losing the Light”. Since then shows have included being support for bands like Sleepy Sun (San Francisco), The Hounds Below (Detroit), Blood Red Shoes (UK), and Kinski (Seattle). Moon has headlined several local band showcases including a special solo show at Cobra Lounge sponsored by Vic’s Drum Shop. When Pat left for New York, Chris Shen replaced him on bass. Moon's second full-length album, “Distant But Close,” was released in 2014. The band released their third full-length studio album, “Extinction,” in 2018, recorded at Rax Trax Studios with Noam Wallenberg.
