KROQ Locals Only Presents

Forever X2 Residency


Gtiz3eimexfexsiglvan

L.A. songwriter Peter Verdell wants to play power chords. And sing with some fuzz on his vocals. And make music that both his modern brain and his teenage brain would be fucking psyched to hear on the radio. That’s the inspiration behind his new band Forever X2, who’s debut 6-song EP is what you might get if you crossed Blur with Beck and added a dose of millennialism. Verdell wrote all the songs in his apartment in downtown Los Angeles and recorded them in a hot, non-ac’d garage in Silverlake with producers Ari Berl and Yianni AP. Verdell played all the drums, guitars, keys, and vocals, and says about the process, “I wanted the songs to capture how I felt when I first started playing music. Informal and fresh, sweaty and loud.” Buzz Bands LA premiered the first single “Keep the Devil Waiting,” calling the song “crunch-tastic.” The 2nd single “Walk the Ocean” has received airplay from tastemaker Kat Corbett on KROQ Locals Only, with the full EP to be released in May 2019. Verdell’s previous band, Act As If, established themselves as indie standouts in the LA scene from regular bookings at venues like the Satellite, The Bootleg, Hotel Cafe, The Roxy, The Glasshouse, Troubadour, et al, as well as receiving steady airplay on KROQ FM’s Locals Only and Kat’s Box. Their music landed syncs on TV shows spanning ABC, CBS, Hulu, MTV, E!, NickTV, VH1, and IFC, as well as promo spots for Apple.com and Lifetime TV. The band was featured as “New and Noteworthy” on iTunes, labeled a “Fuse Favorite” and “Fuseworthy” by Fuse, and received numerous accolades from editors at MTV.com, Buzz Bands LA, All Music, Pop Matters, Buzznet, and others.

Trapdoor Social


Lau5egtka0pta09rcto5

Trapdoor Social is a Los Angeles based independent alternative rock band with a mission. With it's origins in a college environmental studies program, the band has a record of fundraising and activism to promote sustainability. Starting in 2015 Trapdoor Social branched off from the usual mix of club/radio/college shows and began producing outdoor, solar-powered concerts and events around the US, including Sunstock Solar Festival, which is taking place in LA for the 3rd year this October 20th. Their other projects combining music with activism have benefitted Homeboy Industries, Mesa Ridge High School, and Kids Cancer Connection. The band's music is energetic and passionate, with lyrics that play with love, philosophy, and social critique. Several of the band's songs— "Away", "Fine on My Own," "Sunshine," and "Wining as Truth" - have received significant airplay around the country, a national TV ad placement and success on Spotify's 'Discover Weekly'. Since Sunstock '17, the band has been working on an LP that will be their fourth release. Their new single "Hold Me Down" will be impacting specialty the week of October 15, the full album following around the new year, and a national tour in the spring of 2019.

WASI

WASI's music and vigor is an invitation into WASI World: a utopia of love, liberation and a constant questioning of the status quo. They've built a following based on a contagious energy at their live shows and their anthemic "riot pop" songwriting influenced by MIA, Tegan and Sara and The Clash. They have toured on festivals such as the Vans Warped Tour and PRIDE, shared the stage with artists such as The Mowgli’s, Shiny Toy Guns, The Naked and Famous and K. Flay. WASI has released three successful EPs and in Spring 2018 commenced on a US tour, supporting select dates with Caroline Rose. Right before WASI released their debut EP in 2015, they found themselves full fledged into creating a community of their own in Los Angeles, CA. They draw influence from the west coast underground punk scene, late night dance clubs and hip hop production. “The group is well-equipped to be a part of the resistance, providing sounds and solace for young people coming into their own, just as music had helped them before.” - Billboard
