AM Taxi – With a blend of old-school punk, world beat and modern pop influences, the Chicago-based band combines experience with exuberance and are one of only a few bands chosen to perform on the entire 2010 Warped Tour run prior to releasing a full-length album. The band was formed almost two years ago-with the encouragement of Sublime producer Miguel Happoldt-by longtime bandmates and pals, singer/songwriter Adam Krier, drummer Chris Smith and bassist Jason Schultejann. The band’s debut album, “We Don’t Stand a Chance,” will be released on June 8, 2010 via Virgin Records. (http://www.myspace.com/amtaxi)

Delphic – Delphic are post-dance futurist nostalgics from Manchester, UK, who have managed to take repetitive beats and crisp electronics out of the underground to emerge as one of the UK’s most exciting new bands. “Acolyte,” the band’s debut album, was released in the UK at the start of this year and debuted at #8 on the UK album charts. The months leading up to the release saw UK critics buzzing with praise and soon found publications like NME, Q, and The Times of London declaring “Acolyte” one of 2010’s best debut records. “Acolyte” will see its long-awaited US release on June 29, 2010 via Dangerbird Records.
