The Amatory Murder
The Amatory Murder
he Amatory Murder is an alternative rock project founded by singer/songwriter Christian Peppas (under the alias ‘Xian’) in Brooklyn, New York. The project started with just Xian, a guitar and some drum and synthesizer patches in 2011.

Fast forward, and the current lineup includes drummer Scott Genovese, guitarist Christian “The Governor” Buckley and bassist Binx Noir. The band employ a variety of foundational textures utilizing synthetic atmospheres, piano and pop industrial-esque beat arrangements. Mixed with organic drums, heavy guitars and catchy hooks, the tracks are then topped off with melodic lyrics. While many songs from The Amatory Murder have a somewhat classic rock influence, the songs manage to keep a modern 21st-century sound.

Thus far, all albums and recordings from The Amatory Murder have been engineered, produced, financed and released entirely by the band themselves. ‘Neurotica’ is their newest full-length studio album released in November 2016 and their most accessible to date and includes the single ‘The Deadliest Rose’. ‘F*ck It! We’ll Do It Live’ is the band’s first live album recorded and mixed in June 2016 during a show at their home base of King Killer Studios. 2015 saw the release of their single ‘My Nightmare’ accompanied by a video that premiered via Revolver Magazine. In 2014 The Amatory Murder released their EP ‘Exploiting Our Dreams’ which included the single/video for ‘A Haunting’. And it all started with 2011’s ‘A Different Frequency’, the first record release from the band.

In 2017 The Amatory Murder hit the road and played nationally opening for the band Alesana for their ’Hero With A Thousand Faces’ Tour along with bands Eyes Set To Kill and Lakeshore. Previous to that The Amatory Murder headlined their own ‘U & I Mini Tour’ regionally in the North-Eastern United States. The band have also shared the stage with artists including Julien-K (ex-Orgy), Echo Black, Ice Nine Kills, The Dreaming (ex-Stabbing Westward), Get Scared, Vampires Everywhere, The Relapse Symphony, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, The Red Paintings and Justin Symbol. In Autumn of 2017 The Amatory Murder played #MakeChesterProud, a mental health and suicide awareness benefit in memory of Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington put together by Fuse veteran VJ Tim ‘No.37’ Martinez.

When they’re not making music, The Amatory Murder are podcasting. 'Neurotic Creatures' is their attempt to capture the often hilarious conversations the band have regarding everything from music to pop culture to politics to food. No topic is off limits. Listeners can expect to hear anything including rambling stories from the road, prank phone calls, observations and mockery of current events to all out ball-busting of each other. Oh yeah, and the occasional special guest (should they wanna put up with any of it!). The show was launched in late 2017 and streams on most platforms including iTunes, Soundcloud, Stitcher and TuneIn.

The Amatory Murder have a dedicated following in the alternative/modern rock scenes but their break-through sound connects to audiences on all levels with dynamic choruses and energetic beats. They strive to make direct connections with their fans whom they hold close to their hearts and symbolically are as diverse as the band’s music--which sometimes embodies emotions we all have hidden within. They have a very clear vision of what they want the future to hold for them and understand it takes a lot of hard work and dedication to get there – no corners can be cut. The guys ultimately plan on taking the world’s stage, winning over each being at a time with their unique, enduring sound and hard-working mentality.

Hannah vs. The Many
Hannah vs. The Many consists of singer/songwriter/antiheroine Hannah Fairchild and some of the more musically inclined members of her beloved urban family. Hannah's songs tell stories of heartbreak, hook-ups, drunken victories, narrow escapes, and all the other "pretty little tragedies" that come with being young and broke in the greatest city in the world.
