3 Years Hollow
3 Years Hollow is a 5-piece band from the Quad Cities, a group of cities located along the Mississippi River in Iowa and Illinois. Jose Urquiza [vocals], Neil Kuhlman [guitar], Dex Digga [bass], and ChrisCushman [drums]—dispense honest hard rock that's equally hypnotic and heavy.

Over the past decade, the group has solidified itself as one of the Midwest's most incendiary and infectious young acts. Their breakout independent single "Remember" charted at #1 on Octane, while "Chemical Ride" is closing in on 750,000 YouTube views. In 2012, they emerged as regional victors during the Ernie Ball-sponsored Rockstar Energy UPROAR Festival "Battle of the Bands".

Playing the Tinley Park, IL date of UPROAR, they caught the attention of Imagen Records who proceeded to offer them a deal soon after. Now, with production by none other than Clint Lowery of Sevendust, their latest album bristles with irresistible intensity and magnetic melodies. 

Becoming a local stalwart, 3 Years Hollow shared the stage with everybody from Papa Roach to Buckcherry, and they've siphoned their live energy into a kinetic anthems. 

About the sound, Jose explains, "We want to play melodic hard rock. That's the music that brought us together. At the same time, we all have drastically different influences from progressive rock to hair metal to pop punk. All of these other influences will begin to shine through as our albums progress hopefully."

That cohesion comes across on the likes of "For Life". Coupling a fret-burning solo and chorus from Lowery with Jose's dynamic delivery, it practically explodes on impact. 

"It's about a person who is struggling and has fallen away from the world alone," says the vocalist. "You can see the damage and the demons the person deals with on a daily basis. However, all of a sudden, there is hope instead of despair. The final message is to pull away from the demons, stand strong against them, and keep them out for the rest of your life. It was such an honor to bring that track to life with Clint." 

Then, there's "Hungry", which bares its teeth via a bombastic beat and arena-size hook. It taps into their on-stage intensity. "We wrote that in the jam space," recalls Jose. "We want people to get close to the music. We give everything we can so fans forget about everything else."

3 Years Hollow supported "The Cracks" with three (3) singles, all which cracked the Active Rock Top 40 chart and the Billboard Mainstream Rock Top 40 chart.

Ultimately, 3 Years Hollow constantly keeps the listeners in mind with that honesty. "Everything I write about is a completely personal experience or something I've witnessed or experienced myself," he concludes. "I want to give everybody something real."

Alborn
Alborn has already drawn the attention of Morgan Rose of Sevendust and Jose Urquiza of 3 Years Hollow, and they're just getting started.

Formed in 2016, Northern Illinois based alternative metal band Alborn is comprised of Justin Taylor [guitar/vocals], Alex Raser [Drums/vocals], Zame Lewis [bass] and Tyler Mendenhall [guitar]. Their sound has been compared to Deftones or a heavier version of Alice in Chains. But, make no mistake, Alborn has created something hard, melodic and unique.

As a startup, Alborn worked on their live show. This work resulted in winning multiple Battle of the Bands competitions locally. For one of those, the grand prize was a studio session with Jose Urquiza. As part of that session, another opportunity surfaced. Morgan Rose of Sevendust was interested in working with Alborn and producing them.

‚ÄčAs a result, the band spent the end of 2018 tracking 10 songs with Jose and Morgan. The band released the first, Full Circle, in October of 2018. It drew immediate attention locally and regionally. The song was immediately featured on 97X WXLP in the Quad Cities, including a live on-air performance.

Plans for the remaining singles are in place and will be released in 2019.

Hold on to your hats. Alborn is coming.
