Being an independent music site, we are often inundated with email submissions from bands and PR companies alike. As much as we would like to give each and every one as much attention as possible, some may slip through the cracks. We’re launching a ‘Mailbox Monday’ series for those submissions we were not able to personally review. Please check them out!!

The Lucky Jukebox Brigade was formed in October 2010 from a hopeful craigslist ad. Since then, it has grown into a rock and roll circus of gypsy folk pirates who storm Albany’s local music scene and beyond with original music and Vaudevillian antics. The Lucky Jukebox Brigade is ready for you to “take off your fancy shoes” and dance, clap, sing, ramble, roll, jump, rattle, and shake till your heart’s content.

Location: Michigan, USA
Genre: Rock, metal, operatic
Similar To: Nightwish, Epica, Evanescence
Upon Wings is a female-fronted operatic metal band out of the U.S.  The EP features Brett Hestla (ex-Creed, Dark New Day), mastering by Kid Rock recording engineer Glenn Brown and more great musicians. Upon Wings frontwoman Anne Autumn Erickson is a classically-trained dramatic mezzo-soprano, and her lyrics take listeners down a path of heartfelt introspection, pain, joy and faith.
