SMILE EMPTY SOUL is a hard rock band that originated in Los Angeles, CA in the late 1990’s and has stayed true to their brand of “no bullshit”, “real as it gets” hard rock to this day. The band signed a major label record deal in 2003 to release their self-titled debut album in May of that year. They realized huge success at alternative radio, rock radio, and the music video channels that have since fallen by the wayside or turned into reality show networks. After 3 very successful singles/videos, and a gold record from the debut release, the band ran into trouble with their record company (which was in the midst of turmoil at the top levels) and found themselves working extra hard in the trenches, and signed to indie labels from then on. 
 This would become SMILE EMPTY SOUL’ s destiny, as they have gone on to release many more albums on various labels, with their 8th full length “Oblivion”, coming out on May 25th. The band has become known for its constant touring and never wavering honest sound/lyrics. They’ve never changed for anybody, and turned down many opportunities to “sell out” because it’s not who they are. Now, with their new album “Black Pilled” set to release on Oct 12th, and a calendar full of tour dates, SMILE EMPTY SOUL seems to have established itself as one of the defining underground rock bands of its generation.

Smile Empty Soul is an American post grunge band from Santa Clarita, California, United States. Smile Empty Soul formed in 1998, while its original members were attending different high schools in the Santa Clarita area. The band, originally a three-piece group, consisted of vocalist and guitarist Sean Danielsen, bassist Ryan Martin and drummer Derek Gledhill. After playing numerous hometown gigs, Smile Empty Soul ventured to the Sunset Strip, and later gave a demo to John Parker of Los Angeles indie label, ThroBack Records, which led later on to a record deal with Jason Flom's Lava Records. On May 27, 2003, the band released their self-titled debut album Smile Empty Soul.
Rising from the ashes in 2014, The Stone Eye is an electrifying rock band from Philadelphia, PA. Combining elements of Grunge, Stoner Rock, Alternative Rock, Progressive Rock, & Doom Metal comes a hard hitting yet catchy brand of music. Following suit from the hard-hitting 2016 LP "Poison Apple", 2017 EP "Royal & Damned", and 2017 LP "The Meadow", The Stone Eye is at it yet again with their latest LP, "Kevlar, Kryptonite, Gloria".
