Defend Music is proud to announce it’s latest signings!

Michael Conte: Since releasing a jolting self-titled EP and their debut full-length, Closing In, in 2005, the Los Angeles-based group has made a name for itself in the music scene, winning music critics and fans over with their straight-to-the-jugular rock attitude that champions the sounds of everything from Black Sabbath to early Metallica and even punk rock. — read more!

New Bomb Turks: The New Bomb Turks were a seminal 90′s garage punk band from Columbus, Ohio. The founding members are Jim Weber, Eric Davidson, Bill Randt and Matt Reber. Sam Brown replaced Randt on drums in ’99. Early on their inspiration came from the Devil Dogs, Lazy Cowgirls, Union Carbide Productions, Didjits, and the Fluid. Musically, they are akin to The Saints, Dead Boys, The Pagans,The Sonics or the Troggs. Their lyrics are generally witty and humorous, but have serious themes beneath their sophomorish hooks. — read more!

Very Be Careful: Adventure has never been a task for VBC. A Caribbean soul and a California heart have sustained over a decade of ceaseless romp-downs and raucous times for L.A.’s vallenato veteranos, inciting 10s of 1000s of men, women, children, and even some wild animals, to boogie to the Colombian coastal beat. From the debaucherous streets of: Austin’s SXSW, and Germany’s World Cup Tour ’06; to the cultural pinnacles of: Chicago’s Summer Dance Series, New York’s Central Park Summerstage, Los Angeles’ Grand Performances and Levitt Summer Concerts, Silver Lake’s Sunset Junction Street Fair; colossal concerts: L.A. Sports Arena CumbiaFest, Glastonbury Music Festival UK, Asagiri and Fuji Rock Festival Japan, Hammersmith Apollo London; clubs and hubs: N.Y.’s SOBs, L.A.’s HOBs, backyard BBQs, Very Be Careful has tamed the beasts within or unleashed the ones without. — read more!
