Final Warning
Final Warning
Founded in 2009 in New Jersey, Final Warning is a punk-rock trio whose catchy melodies, driving energy, and bad sense of hum...or create a style of music that is reminiscent of the resurgence of punk in the 90's with elements of more serious song writing dating back to rock and roll in the 60's. They have recorded four studio albums of original material that have been played on major Philadelphia radio stations and college radio stations all across the country. The band's fan base is constantly growing as they play shows along the east coast and continue to explore new places to showcase their music. Get in touch, play the music, and share!
VNIX
VNIX
The “500” EP is the introduction of indie pop artist VNIX to the world.

In popular mythology, 500 refers to the lifespan of a Phoenix. On its 500th year, it sets itself on fire, eventually rising from it’s own carcass as a new and improved version. By embodying the aesthetic of the phoenix and its spirit of rebirth, VNIX is creatively reimagining the male pop artist and making his own rules.

In only 4 songs, we are given a glimpse into sex, betrayal, love, and heartbreak; themes that foreshadow the work to come. This first chapter is the set up for a deeper look into how romance can lead to both your death and rebirth.

“In order to become bigger than we are, we must be willing to sacrifice who we were. Sometimes it takes great tragedy to discover how to transcend ourselves. The message of the phoenix is that every death brings new life. We must learn to let go of the parts of ourselves that hold us back, hurt us, or keep us from evolving and reaching our highest potential. These tiny deaths leave the space for stronger parts of ourselves to be born and nurtured, just like a phoenix, always improving.”
Ode To Omni
