Rock 94 1/2 & Knitting Factory Presents:
GA's Too Broke To Rock feat. Otherwise
The Las Vegas hard alternative rock quintet—Adrian Patrick [vocals], Ryan Patrick [guitar/vocals], Corky Gainsford [drums/vocals], Vassilios Metropoulos [bass], & Andrew Pugh [guitar/vocals]—catalog the next chapter of this journey on their second full-length album, Peace At All Costs [Century Media Records].
Their music has given countless fans worldwide the same outlet. By 2014, the band’s debut True Love Never Dies moved nearly 60,000 copies and spawned close to 300,000 single sales of the hits “Soldiers,” “I Don’t Apologize (1000 Pictures),” and “Die For You.” The group toured alongside heavy hitters such as Stone Sour, Papa Roach and Three Days Grace, and gave rousing performances at high-profile festivals including Rock On The Range, Aftershock, Rocklahoma, Carolina Rebellion, and Welcome To Rockville. However, Peace At All Costs raises the stakes across the board for the Vegas outfit.
In the summer of 2014 Chicago native Dave Naruszewicz was looking to work on a new project following the disbandment of his former group Heart Set-Self Destruct. After years of touring with such bands as Filter, Hell Yeah, and Volbeat (to name a few) it he realized it was time for change. He spent time working with other musicians in the Chicago music scene looking to feed his passion as an artist and wasn’t finding what he was looking for. Dave’s undying passion for music was not deterred so he decided to reach out to longtime friend and fellow Drummer Russell Ray (formerly of Old Fashioned Beatdown).
From the start Dave was willing to fly to Los Angeles from Chicago every other week to work together in building something new, original, and undeniable. Russ then reached out to Shawn Patterson (former guitarist for Old Fashioned Beatdown). Shawn (currently residing in Fresno) was down to make the commute as well to LA, and the three began shooting demos over the web that became the foundation of what is VYCES.
After a few trips to LA the three musicians decided to go into the studio with Augustus Cryns (producer of Stitched Up Heart, XO Stereo, The Dead Rabbits, and West Field Massacre), and also featured Mark James Klepaski (Formerly of Breaking Benjamin, and Lifer) on bass. After a year of writing and recording the band has finished 22 songs of true emotion, and power. The band has been related to such artists as Chevelle, Killswitch Engage, and Red as they have sonically created a blend of Active Rock, with a dash of metal. Dave describes the soul of the songs through his lyrics as exploring the darker side of human emotion and behavior. "It's something everyone can relate to because everyone has experienced some form of hurt, betrayal, weakness, hate, addiction, and/or lack of acceptance" says singer Naruszewicz. "It’s also the fuel that drives us to become stronger, get better, and overcome the flaws we've built in our minds."
In October 2016 VYCES released their debut EP “DEVILS” and released a music video for the single “DEVIL” shot by Ron Underwood. From October through Novemeber of that year the band embarked on a the HELLRZZR TOUR which trecked across the U.S performing in 29 cities in 33 days.
Currently VYCES has spent the beginning of 2017 working towards material for their next EP titled “ANGELS” which will be released this Fall of 2017. This EP will also feature their current radio national radio single titled “NOCTURNAL” accompanied another music video shot by Ron Underwood, and features Butcher Babies own Carla Harvey.
VYCES will be on tour all summer!!
This is awesome. I love watching the pure emotion. You can literally feel the love you guys have for what you do when watching this. I can't wait to hear the album (“Unity”) and see you play!!”

Since exploding on the music scene in 2009, No Resolve has attracted legions of devoted fans with their high-energy, deeply personal, thematic songs. Featuring lead singer Oscar Pegorraro, guitarists Jason Hatmaker and Matty Shea, bassist Dennis Patterson and drummer Derek Bjornson, the band has shared the stage with the likes of Papa Roach, Hinder & Pop Evil, Sick Puppies and Buckcherry.
No Resolve established themselves early in their career with their first EP, “A New Beginning.” The 2012 recording received critical national acclaim, and served as a stepping-stone to their popular single, "Get Me Out." With its heavy and somewhat somber lyrics and hard-driving, soaring riffs, No Resolve demonstrated that they were a force to be reckoned with. In addition to receiving heavy rotation during Detroit Red Wings playoff games, “Get Me Out” has received 15 million-plus plays/hits on YouTube.
After almost non-stop touring, at the end of 2014 the band went into the studio with Shane Grush to create their first full-length album, “Unity.” The album, featuring “Love Me To Death” and “The Pusher” co-written with Johnny Andrews, was recorded in Michigan and Tennessee and took 18 months to produce. It was time well spent.
Crafted with their signature raucous sound and meticulously honed lyrics, the album debuted at #45 on the iTunes Rock chart and #10 on the Billboard Heatseeker chart. It was also highlighted on Amazon’s Hot New Releases. Bryson Roach, brother of Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix, shot and directed the band’s first video single for one of the album’s most popular songs, “The Pusher.” And speaking of Jacoby Shaddix, his clothing line, Lovers Are Lunatics, is endorsing the band. As impressive as all the props they’ve gotten, No Resolve has done this all on their own with no corporate sponsorship.
The band continues to rack up success after success, having recently won the prestigious Linkin Park/Stagelight monthly music contest. And their fan base is growing as well, with millions of streams and thousands of listeners on Spotify,
No Resolve seems destined for greatness. In fact, based on how far they’ve come in these few short years, one thing is certain – No Resolve is a band that is going to take the music world by storm.
