It’s gonna get loud with these 3 amazing bands in tiny El Rocko…. you don’t want to miss out on this show!


Defy the Tyrant

Dynamic Tallahassee, FL based rock band Defy The Tyrant have, in just a few years, developed a polished fusion of Southern and Classic Rock blended uniquely with Nu-Metal. They pride themselves to such diverse influences as Garth Brooks, Slipknot, Stevie Ray Vaghn, Motley Crue, Fuel, Sevendust, and Creed.


sunbreak is a rock band from the Augusta, GA area. After releasing our first song in 2021 and playing our first show in 2022, we have gained a lot of positive attention in a short amount of time. Our music balances on a thin line between post-hardcore, metalcore, pop, and rock to give our listeners a unique and impactful experience on and off the stage. sunbreak has had the opportunity to share the stage with a lot of notable names such as SECRETS, Dead American, Born Of Osiris, Rain, City Drive, IN THE END(Linkin Park Experience), SAUL, Kingdom Collapse, and Capstan.


Tragic formed in late 2018 with founding members Josh Ivester and Jeremiah Priest. Josh Ivester would be the main songwriter for the band and Jeremiah Priest would be the backbone covering the drums.

Tragic was supposed to be a studio project but after they released a demo of a song called NTNO a buzz was created in their hometown. Soon after that release, they decided to turn this studio project into an actual, working band.

They soon recruited local musical veteran Andrew Mack to fill the bass position. These three bonded over their shared love of hard rock/nu-metal music and began writing songs together. Soon after, they recruited several guitar players until they found Joseph Rigdon to complete their lineup.

With the lineup complete, they started playing shows around the southeast region as they worked on their debut EP. In the fall of 2021, they release their first EP called Ready for War. Soon after the release, they would find themselves on some pretty good bills opening for the likes of Nonpoint, Blacktop Mojo, Saul, and many other national acts. In November of 2021, they battled their way into a spot on Welcome to Rockville through a contest hosted by SpaceZebra, playing a side stage at Daytona Motor Speedway with some of the biggest names in the industry such as Rob Zombie, Metallica, Disturbed, and many more.

In 2022 they started workshopping new material and found themselves working with Clint Lowery of Sevendust and producer Myles Clayborne of Saul on their latest single Remember.

As of October 2023, Joseph Rigdon and founding member Jeremiah Priest had to step away from the band leaving big holes to fill in the lineup. After months of auditions, they finally solidified a new lineup with Justin Watson on guitar and Seve Barrineau on drums.
