D.O.A. is a Canadian punk rock band from Vancouver, British Columbia. They are often referred to as the "founders" of hardcore punk along with Black Flag, Bad Brains, Angry Samoans, the Germs, Negative Trend, and Middle Class. Their second album Hardcore '81 was thought by many[1] to have been the first actual reference to the second wave of the American punk sound as hardcore.

Singer/guitarist Joey "Shithead" Keithley is the only founding member to have stayed in the band throughout its entire history, with original bassist Randy Rampage returning to the band twice after his original departure. D.O.A. has often released music on Jello Biafra's Alternative Tentacles Records, and they have released an album titled Last Scream of the Missing Neighbors.

D.O.A. is known for its outspoken political opinions and has a history of performing for many causes and benefits. Its slogan is "Talk Minus Action Equals Zero." The band's lyrics and imagery frequently advocate anti-racism, anti-globalization, freedom of speech, and environmentalism.

Founder Joe Keithley is also the founder of Sudden Death Records which has released music by D.O.A. and several other bands including Pointed Sticks and Young Canadians.

Ese
Ese
Ese is a unique mash up of Punk, Rock n Roll, and just a touch of Hardcore and Metal. Ese started in the early 2000s, spending their first years finding and refining their signature sound to their local Houston music scene. Over the years they have toured all over the USA which led to them being noticed and signed by Zodiac Killer Records. Until 2014, all original members of ESE worked hard to get the band to where they are today. After the departure of Knotch, one of the driving forces behind Ese, the band made the tough decision to continue. With the addition of Edward and Chris, the renewed energy and the incredible sound and fury of the band has floored audiences around America which landed them a spot on the Sudden Death Records roster, where ESE happily joins the ranks of amazing artist such as The Damned, MDC, The Vibrators, Real McKenzies, and DOA.

Here's what Joe Keithley of DOA fame and Sudden Death records have to say about ESE and their new Album "All In" - "Ese are a rough and tumble outfit from the streets. When they hit the stage you can tell they mean business. That's exactly what Sudden Death's Joe Shithead saw when ESE opened for D.O.A. a few years back. He exclaimed, "Wow, ESE is like Tex-Mex Motorhead, they blew the doors off of that joint."About a year later Shithead saw Ese again in Texas, they stomped their proverbial stomping grounds in such a menacing way, Joe happily agreed to sign the band to Sudden Death. So this is the end result. It's a wild and unbridled marriage of rock n' roll and punk that has not been seen for some time. From the kicking opening track "Badass Fatass" to "Ghetto Ese Style," these boys take power riffs and mash them nonstop into your cranium, you'll be screaming for more. And that's what you get as they blaze thru "Pissed Off," "Texas Guns" and the saucy "Guacamole" (Texas Tornados). Ese is from the streets and they will kick your ass with All In, in what will surely become known as one of the rawest and best rock n' roll albums of 2015.

ESE has shared the stage with incredible acts such as Flogging Molly, The Independents, The Vibrators, Nashville Pussy, Electric Frankenstein, DOA plus many more. ESE are true road warriors, always on the road wondering what adventure awaits them next. Be sure to catch the loud and furious sound of ESE in your town!
