The Continuums are not a band that formed by chance. In fact, the four-piece rock band from Austin, Texas has been preparing for this moment all of their lives. With the release of their debut EP “Crossing Caswell,” The Continuums plan on spreading their experimental and raw rock and roll to people of all ages. With a sound rooted in classic rock giants like Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones, The Continuums have also forged their sound in the ways of modern rock bands like The Foo Fighters and Kings of Leon. This combination of influences along with their tight-fitting clothing, long hair, and overall intensity gives audiences a nostalgic feeling of the late 1960s or early 1970s, only in a modern setting. The Continuums truly give everything they have every time they hit the stage and their audience has begun to take notice. The band that formed in April 2011 is composed of Ries brothers Austin (lead guitar) and Morgan (drums), lead vocalist Barrett Boswell, and bassists Josh Bruner. All four members originate from a small suburban town outside of Fort Worth, Texas, but moved to Austin to chase their dream of making music with southern roots and pop appeal. Currently unsigned, The Continuums are making everything happen on their own. Over the last year, they have been working hard in the studio while also making a name for themselves in local clubs and venues all over Austin. Not only is the band constantly forming their sound and stage presence, but they are also getting new fans each week and even gaining some attraction as a hot new band to watch in the upcoming months.
RECENTLY HAND-PICKED BY SLASH (Ex GUNS N ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER) TO OPEN FOR HIM AND HIS SOLO BAND IN AUSTIN, TX AS PART OF HIS 2012 APOCALYPTIC LOVE WORLD TOUR! Foxy Dangerous creates a stimulating live experience with original rock music, performed passionately with soulful vocals and infectious guitar-driven melodies. Formed in early 2011 with the goal to complete an album before the summer, these hard-working, young musicians are currently racking up plenty of live experience by entertaining eager crowds. The first album, released in May 2011, showcases 11 original songs that provide a surprising take on rock ‘n roll. Recorded in Fort Wayne, IN before taking flight for Austin, TX, the album grooves with soulful, silky vocals over a stripped-down rock template consisting only of guitar, bass, and drums. 2011 saw Foxy Dangerous playing various gigs around Texas while building a fan base inspired by the group’s hard rock roots and pop sensibility. This year (2012), the group recorded and released a few new singles. Showcases during the 2012 SXSW Festival also brought much international attention to the band and helped pave the way for several high-profile appearances including opening for Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, as well as Foxy Shazam, at Austin’s legendary Stubb’s BBQ. Foxy Dangerous was selected to perform at the Fall 2012 Old Pecan Street Festival. Current plans include solidifying a fan base in the state of Texas – by branching out to other great cities like San Antonio, Dallas, and Houston, all while working towards international ambitions. The most important part of this experience is sharing a love for the music, attitude, and spirit of rock ‘n roll with every audience.
