In this week's issue of Phoenix New Times, we profiled ten new(ish) bands we expect to dominate Phoenix iPods and boomboxes this long, hot summer. We'll be focusing more deeply on those artists over the next couple days here on Up on the Sun.
See the entire list: 10 Local Bands You Should Be Listening to This Summer
Metalcore outfit City In The Sea isn't exactly new. The 5-piece has has been around since the summer of 2009, but it seems like only those truly integrated into the local metal scene know much of them.
Which is odd, considering they have shared the stage with such artists as Greeley Estates, Impending Doom, Oh Sleeper, The Word Alive and Miss May I. Maybe it's because vocalist Todd Reitmyer, guitarist/vocalist Jeff Horrocks, guitarist Nick Rossi, bassist Dan Marinaro and drummer Conor White are barely out of high school, and frequent hardcore, gritty spaces like the Nile Underground.
