Hex Records will release the debuts from two new Syracuse bands- Oak and Bone and Night Owls- soon after the new year.
Oak and Bone are a younger band whose members have played together in various incarnations over the years, settling on what they have now- dirty hardcore rock with riffs upon riffs, akin to Ebullition style hardcore mixed with some Lords and Queens Of the Stone Age (at least to this guy). They will be recording a 7" at some point before year's end. You can hear a few demo songs here:

Night Owls
are also a new band, but between the four members they've
put in time with dozens of well-known bands around town. With Night Owls they opt for something a bit off-course from what they're used to and go for punchy rock that brings to mind the songwriting of Hot Snakes, though a bit more on the hardcore side. They will be releasing a CDEP with a handful of new songs as well as their demo (the 7" version with three of the new songs will surface on Syracuse's own ever-cheerful Barbarossa Records). You can hear one of their demo songs here:
