VoidLife Records welcomes you to the end-of-the-world, spring rager, fallout shelter, head-in-your-hands-too-good getdown
♛ LIONIZE ♛
Hometown megazoids assembled to crush DC.
In ten years of living in relative obscurity to the mainstream pop cultured music audience Lionize has garnered a reputation as an explosive live act and recording group amongst fans, concert- goers and legendary musicians across the globe. Lionize are taking 100% control of their destiny by going back to their roots and taking a page from the DIY Handbook.
What defines Rock and Roll? How does a band meld a multitude of sonic colors into a uniformed and utmost original sound? When does a band cross the threshold into legendary status? Lionize answers all these questions by simply continuing to survive and thrive in a class all their own, by carrying a musical flag that no one else is waving — and standing as an example of hope to any artist that wants to remain true to themselves…
▲ Tomato Dodgers ▲
Tomato Dodgers are on a mission to make live music as strange and powerful an experience as possible.
They have Jeaux-Phred, space messiah extraordinaire. They tap-dance, swing dance, and salsa with audience members. They leap from 20-foot embankments and build time machines onstage during their sets. They blur the line between stage show and immersive art piece in a way that people don’t soon forget. They’re unpredictable, but always electric.
This past May, they threw their own music festival. They played over 100 shows in 2017, including tours in Japan and South Korea.
Tomato Dodgers come to impart a musical covenant as twisted and unknowable as the great black hole at the center of our solar system.
They will not rest until they perform on the moon.

➳ XK Scenario ➳
What happens when an unstoppable speed meets an immovable heaviness.
XK Scenario describe their uniquely powerful music as Prog-Hop: progressive rock and hip-hop put together. Since 2015, the band has been introducing a style of music and storytelling not yet heard by the public's ears, in addition to an intense new level of showmanship.
