Nightmare Air
Named after a skateboard move from a vintage skate film, Los Angeles band NIGHTMARE AIR emphasizes sonic momentum, during both live performances and in the studio.

In support of 2013 debut release “High in the Lasers” the trio comprised of Dave Dupuis, Swaan Miller and Jimmy Lucido, have been raging venues across the globe with energetic massive sound walls, captivating lights, and ethereal vocals. All of which landed the group critical success such as featured new artist in Filter and Under the Radar magazine, and album of the month in ArtRocker Magazine UK.



2017 now finds the band completing their second studio album and adding 4th member Liza Stegall on keyboards. Liza on now on the keys they’ve take their expanding wall of sound around the US and playing select shows and festivals sharing the stage with The Kills, Black Mountain, Teenage Fanclub, Cat Power and more.

Nightmare Air’s Dupuis, a veteran of L.A. shoegazers Film School (Beggars Banquet Records), and Miller, whose stark acoustic album on Important Records melted hearts and faces everywhere, meticulously layer boy-girl harmonies, pulsing pop synths, psych noise loops and glam soaked walls of guitars. Add to that Liza Stegall on the keys and Detroit heavy hitter Jimmy Lucido on the drums (The Strays/ TVT records) in their combined years of touring, these road veterans have supported heavyweights from Smashing Pumpkins to The Jesus and Mary Chain to Swervedriver. Headlining clubs and playing festivals around the world Nightmare Air have shared stages with The Kills, The Dandy Warhols, Teenage Fanclub, Cat Power, The Black Lips, The Soft Moon, No Age, Sonic Youth legend Lee Ranaldo, The Wedding Present, The Duke Spirit, No Age, The Buzzcocks, Ringo Deathstarr, Fishbone, Japanther, Ice Age, and The Cult and many more.

The sophomore album being mixed in Los Angeles and was recorded around the world in between tours in studios in Ireland, Las Vegas, Amsterdam and finally Toronto where they brought in the assistance of Doug Romano (Drake, Justin Bieber) to complement their musical pivot.

Released in 2013 the debut studio full-length “High in the Lasers” mixed by Dave Schiffman (Nine Inch Nails, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Mars Volta) and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, Sonic Youth, The White Stripes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs)

The debut release “High in the Lasers” is available on indie front line labels St. Marie Records (CD, Digital) and Goodnight Records (Vinyl) as well as Vinyl Junkie in Japan, sharing a roster with Ringo Deathstarr, Adam Franklin (Swervedriver), The Wombats, A Place to Bury Strangers, and Crocodiles.

August 2017, Nightmare Air will be playing a residency at world famous Los Angeles venue The Satellite.

Hold on tight, the future is bright.
Iress
Iress
Iress (formerly Iris) makes the kind of music that submerges you into another world. Heavy. Dark. Electric. Doom-gaze guitars are layered over ethereal vocals that metamorphose into anguished screams, and are accented by cinematic drums and dancing bass lines.

Formed in 2010 on the outskirts of LA, Iress has slowly built itself into a commanding machine of sound, steadily gaining steam and momentum. Their powerful live performances and raw talent have caught on like wildfire, with their heavy, melancholic sound and cathedral-like vocals drawing comparisons to bands such as True Widow, King Woman, Chelsea Wolfe, and Emma Ruth Rundle.

The release of their EP Prey at the end of 2015 forged a new chapter in Iress’ story. The band spent most of last year opening for high-caliber bands such as Sunflower Bean, Chon, and Summer Twins, and performing at festivals, including Echo Park Rising. They were named as a band-not-to-be-missed by the LA Times.
This year, Iress will be releasing their second EP, Soaked, via PLAG Records. This EP sees the band delving even further into the haunting, massive sounds that they explored in their earlier material.

With DoLA naming them one of LA’s Bands to Watch for 2017, and plans for a West Coast tour in the works, Iress is a band you will not want to miss.
