Looking for a high-energy concert with passion-filled lyrics? Then come check out The Island, this weekend!

The Island- QC DIY Music Venue is hosting an impressive line-up of four unforgettable bands this Friday July 7. Earth Groans, Snailmate, Antipathist and Evergloom will be rocking out for your moshing pleasures.

Earth Groans, based out of Southeastern South Dakota was recently signed to Solid State Records. Pulling inspirations from hardcore, metal, odd time and death-core inspirations, Earth Groans creates an experience of organized dissonance and very aggressive vocals. As front man Jeremy states, “No one whispers about something they are passionate about”. Find out more about the band at http://earthgroans.com.

Snailmate was formed in 2015 in Phoenix and is now touring across the world. They book and fund all their own tours, as well as screen printing shirts, producing buttons, designing posters and more. It has been said the nerdcore duo bring such an exciting show because you never know what to expect with them. Find out more about the band at https://www.snailmate.com/.

Antipathist, a hardcore metal group, and Evergloom, a hardcore melodic group, are both from Illinois and will most definitely not disappoint!
