Watch Flaw’s Entire Performance In Sacramento, California

In the video below, watch Flaw perform @ Holy Diver in Sacramento, California 02/20/18 with Zero Client, The Crowned, Blacklight District & Decipher.

In 2015, Louisville, Kentucky-based rock/metal act, Flaw, inked a worldwide deal with Pavement Entertainment. The band released “Divided We Fall” in April 2016. This release marked the band’s first album since 2004’s Endangered Species.

“Completely stoked about joining the Pavement roster! The label is run by people who understand the rock world and what it takes to succeed. It’s a perfect situation for us and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store!”, comments Flaw vocalist Chris Volz.

Formed in 1996 by guitarist Jason Daunt and vocalist Chris Volz, Flaw released two major label albums, Through The Eyes (2001) and Endangered Species (2004) on Universal/Republic Records. Breakups, lineup changes, and internal strife plagued the band for the rest of the decade. The band fully reunited in 2013, and as of 2015 they are back together with three of their core members and stronger than ever before. The band welcomes 2016 with a fresh outlook, new label, and new album that their rabid diehard fan base has been eagerly awaiting.

Hoods is a metalcore band from Sacramento, California. Formed in 1994 by Mike (Hood) Mraz who later added Logan Murray, Tony Goodloe and Billy Gaffney. Hoods shows influences such as Madball, Sick of It All, Minor Threat and Cro-Mags. They released their first EP entitled Once Again in 1996 and concentrated on live performances. After numerous fights between fans and an altercation between a couple of the band members and a police officer, the band was more or less forced out of the Sacramento area. The band concentrated efforts on the San Francisco Bay Area playing shows with groups such as Powerhouse, Redemption 87 and Skin Lab. In 1997 after a disagreement with bandmates and his mother’s illness Gaffney left and was replaced by Jeremy. Murray and Goldoe then left and were replaced by Ben and Mario. Mike was the only original member left. The Hoods were dropped from Victory Records. They signed with Eulogy Recordings in 2005 and released The King Is Dead. The group released a new album, Ghetto Blaster, on April 24, 2007. The newest release Pit Beast dropped in late May 2009 after the band signed with I Scream Records. In 2014 the band signed with Artery Recordings and released “Gato Negro”.
