Worhol out of Houston Texas having toured extensively both in the States as well as internationally. They bring a unique style to the stage with tremendous artistry as well as production. The illumination tour rolls into Kc for one night only !!! With a mix of music and story telling Ashely leads her band of exceptional musicians including the Patriarch of the Worhol family Larry Worhol as well the mad man himself behind the drums Mr Marty Naul and the bass master Craig Malinowski !! Truly a set you do not want to miss !!!
Worhol formed in 2013 when lead singer Ashley Worhol and her father Larry Worhol decided they wanted to follow their dream together as a team. Both having degrees in music and a classical background, they knew that they had the knowledge it would take in writing their style of music. Worhol’s music can be best described as symphonic and theatrical with Larry being the guitarist as well as the orchestral composer and Ashley being professional trained. Since Ashley and Larry are kin to Andy Warhol they decided to keep the band name in the family. Once Worhol was set they reached out and found the rest of the members of the band; Craig Malinowski (bassist) and Marty Naul (drummer).
Burn The Gates the fastest growing metal band in KC !!! Fresh off the hugely successful release of thier full length album Blessed with this curse , they continue their torrid meticulous destruction of each and every stage on their summer of terror!! We are stoked to bring you Burn for the 1st time ever in the Facemelt stage !!
Burn the Gates is a hardcore metal band from Kansas City. Comprised of locally-rooted veterans, this band brings a wide variety of influences and backgrounds to the scene. The result is a different flavor of metal with bludgeoning heavy grooves that kick you in the chest and shred your eardrums. When integrated with gut-wrenching vocals, it’s a delight for any metal fan.
Founded in 2015, the chemistry for Burn the Gates sparked immediately and continued to grow with each new song. A new front man joined in 2017, and the band quickly solidified its sound and place within the Kansas City music scene.
As Earth Shatters fresh out of the studio and successful video and single releases , returns to KC , just having provided direct support to Powerman 5000 they hit town once again to kick off the very busy festival and fall touring schedule right here in KC !!
