Have a two minute conversation with anyone in Outlands, and you’ll quickly realize why they have dubbed their sound as “Positive Metal Core.” Their lively personalities and determined mindsets are as infectious as their songs. Outlands, which featuresJames DeBerg (vocals), Jordan Garza (vocals), Alex Ortega (guitar), Kris Renfro(guitar), Zack Harrison (bass), and Garrett Halvax (drums), cites bands like Devil Wears Prada and We Came As Romans as their biggest influences. They use those band’s live performances as the inspiration for their energy filled live set. Utilizing a two frontman set up of clean and alternative vocals and drawing from their well of emotional lyrics and awe inspiring stage presence, Outlands is able to illicit a passionate and interactive crowd reaction.
This past year has been quite the ride for Outlands, culminating in their working withDrew Fulk (We Came As Romans, Motionless In White) to record their debut LP,Grave Mind. “Drew, with his extensive musical knowledge, experience in developing bands, and awesome team of assistants,” said DeBerg, “helped us find our own unique sound and perfectly portray the emotion and message of our music.” Along with the LP, which was recorded at Think Sound Studios in North Carolina, the band has recently signed on to the family of artists at Tragic Hero Records. “After talking extensively with Tommy (Tommy Lacombe/Tragic Hero Records Owner),” added Deberg, “we all decided that Tragic Hero Records was the perfect fit for Outlands to jumpstart our music careers.”
With their soon to be released debut LP scheduled for June 23rd and an extensive touring calendar to follow, Outlands is poised to use 2015 as a springboard towards
an exciting career!

ABOUT A Skylit Drive:
Great vision, that’s what it takes to refuse to rest on previous success and instead focus on what you need to become in the future, which is exactly what Lodi, California’s A Skylit Drive continues to achieve with every album. Vocalist Michael “Jag” Jagmin, guitarist Nick Miller, and bassist Kyle Simmons, officially exploded onto the scene in 2007 with their EP She Watched the Sky. They followed that release up with three full-length albums titled Wires and the Concept of Breathing, Adelphia and Identity on Fire,which all charted on the Billboard Top 200, and their live DVD Let Go of the Wires. In 2013, the band released their 4th full length, Rise, while releasing an acoustic album,Rise: Ascension; an acoustic re-imagining, in January of 2015. They are currently recording their next full length album at Adelaide Recording Studios in Raleigh, NC, along with new band members, drummer Brandon “Rage” Richter, and guitarist/screamer Michael Labelle.
A Skylit Drive has toured extensively with similar artists like Blessthefall, Sleeping with Sirens, Pierce the Veil, and Of Mice & Men; as well as contributing songs to the well known compilations Punk Goes Classic Rock and Punk Goes Pop Vol 4. A Skylit Drive’s musical resume would be enough of a career for most bands, but they have no intentions of slowing down. In fact, the band believes they are just hitting their stride.
