Vision Video is a post-punk goth rock band from Athens, Georgia that injects modern malaise into classic sounds of the late 70’s and 80’s.
The band pays homage to classics like the Chameleons and The Cure, while also bringing a refreshing modern element to the genre.
Thematically their music explores the effects of trauma on the human psyche and finding stability and agency in an insane world. Having served in Afghanistan with the army and as a firefighter in the civilian world, lead singer and guitarist Dusty Gannon is no stranger to the darker proclivities of humanity and death itself. “I wanted to write music that helped people remember that it’s okay to not be okay, but that also doesn’t shy away from taking a stern look at the darker aspects of our flawed human existence.” says Gannon.
The band’s first two records were met with much critical praise, such as that from Pitchfork stating they create “dreamy tune tailor-made for the sort of wallflower who sprints to the dancefloor the instant the DJ drops “Age of Consent” or “Primary” at Goth Night”
Their debut LP “Inked in Red” and second LP “Haunted Hours”, were recorded and mixed by Tom Ashton of The March Violets at his Sub Von Studios in Athens, Georgia.
 
Vision Video will soon record their next LP “Modern Horror” at Maze Studios in Atlanta headed by Grammy award winning producer Ben Allen.
 

Known for their introspective and candid lyrics, Madison Records Alternative Pop band Forrest Isn’t Dead pours out their stories of hardships and redemption through their dreamy and euphoric take on music. The Atlanta based band is made up of lead singer Forrest and his three best friends Vassy, Kymani, and Cole. Being on the road together for many successful tours has brought them as close as brothers, and this is evident in their live show. The band draws inspiration from all over the playing field including bands such as The Cure, Coheed & Cambria, Nine Inch Nails, and Crosses.

 

The release of their debut album “The End of Everything” on September 16th, 2022, achieved critical success from both fans and industry. They’ve amassed millions of streams across all platforms, and have been featured on numerous Spotify editorial playlists, as well as MTV’s Spanking New with their singles ‘’Fire’ and ‘Born or Made’. In addition to their music being played on radio stations across the country including 99X-Atlanta, KTCL-Denver, KPNT-St. Louis, and KJEE Santa Barbara, the band was featured in such press outlets as Alternative Press, Amplify Music, Broadway World, Vents, and more!

 

There is no slowing down for Forrest Isn’t Dead in 2024 as they kicked off the year with an electric performance at the Grammy Nominations in support of Killer Mike. The band is now set up at Madison Studios, diligently recording their much anticipated sophomore album. Fans can expect new music throughout this year, along with live dates across the U.S.
