Based in New Jersey, the fun loving, dance inducing, post-hardcore/EDM fusion band know as Palisades flourish in the concept that music is universal. This left-of-center sextet strives to have fans of all walks of life colliding together in the enjoyment of sonic art. From a high school start-up consisting of Matt Marshall (guitar), Xavier Adames (guitar/vocals), Brandon Sidney (bass/vocals), Earl Halasan (DJ) and Aaron Rosa (drums), to the wonderful merging of Lou Miceli’s vocals in 2011; Palisades developed a sound that resembles a mash up of Linkin Park meets AFI, also blending influences such as Limp Bizkit and Kanye West.
In 2011 the band unveiled three singles off of their debut EP, I’m Not Dying Today, which grasped the attention of Rise Records, who released the EP in February 2012. After Palisades’ success with their inaugural release, they began touring heavily, hitting the road with The Air I Breathe, My Ticket Home, and Hands Like Houses on the 2012 Rise Records Freshman Class Tour. With their incredible live show catching lots of attention, Palisades was then invited to join The Started from the Bottom Tour with The Word Alive, I See Stars, and Crown The Empire.
Palisades critically acclaimed debut full-length album Outcasts, was released on Rise Records in 2013. The record was a huge triumph, reaching #4 on the iTunes Rock charts, #7 on Billboard’s Hot New Artists chart, and debuting on the Billboard Top 200 lists. The band continued their monumental success with a music video for the album’s lead single, “High and Low,” garnering placement on MTV Clubland, and showcasing the energy that they infuse in their live shows for television and viral viewers. The band has had the opportunity to tour and share the stage with other artists they admire including Breath Carolina, Get Scared, Set It Off, Hands Like Houses, Silverstein, We Came As Romans, Like Moths To Flames, Our Last Night, and more.
For their sophomore LP, Mind Games, this genre-bending group tapped producer Erik Ron (Panic At The Disco, Foxy Shazam) to further cultivate their electrifying, signature sound. They also enlisted the talents of rappers Blackbear and Champs, and The Color Morale vocalist, Garret Rapp, for special song collaborations, kicking the album into overdrive. Mind Games wasreleased on January 13th, 2015 via Rise Records to an overwhelmingly positive response, reaching #2 on iTunes rock chart, #30 on iTunes’s overall albums chart, and #2 on the Billboard Heat-Seekers Chart.
Palisades continue their momentum with a coveted spot on the upcoming Take Action Tour with Memphis May Fire, Crown the Empire, and Dance Gavin Dance and 2015 Vans Warped Tour. With a great start to a new year, Palisades prove they are an unyielding force with no signs of slowing down.
