Imagine Dragons: After the last note played on the last song of a marathon set a few years ago, Dan Reynolds, frontman for Las Vegas based rockers Imagine Dragons, realized it was all starting to come together. “We were playing a gig at this place called O’Sheas, which has the cheapest beer on the strip,” Reynolds remembers. “I was basically standing on top of the drums, the stage was so small. We were on our final song of a six-hour set. I got to the end of the song and just fully passed out in the middle of singing. I came to, got up, finished the song, and we got a standing ovation from all these people at this tiny little casino at three am on a weekday in Vegas. Something about that moment bonded us and made us realize that we were building a connection with people from all over the country.”

Weezer: The members of Weezer have not given up on the good ol’ fashioned studio album, as evidenced by their NINTH full-length release this year, Everything Will Be Alright in the End. If you’re looking for something to give you a real pick-me-up this year at Deck, just be sure to stick around for this whole set, they “want to write and play the songs that express what the community wants — the songs that make us happy.” We can’t wait to hear them play our favorites from all the way back from the Blue Album, to the vast and varied tracks off their latest release.

Cage The Elephant: After touring for nearly five years straight, the musicians decided it was time to take some time off the road to write their newest album, Melophobia (we’re so happy they’re touring again in time to see them at Deck). The single from the album, “Come a Little Closer” is a boisterous, blues-laden rocker that has all the swagger and playfulness from their earlier albums, Cage the Elephant and Thank You, Happy Birthday.

Young The Giant: Young the Giant is an assembly of international names and assorted backgrounds that combine to produce a refreshing brand of sun-soaked indie rock. You’ll recognize them from all the times we’ve spun them on The End; and their songs “It’s About Time,” “Cough Syrup,” and “My Body” are all certified hits. They currently have 2 studio albums, Young the Giant and Mind Over Matter, under their belts and we’re stoked to have these young talented musicians at Deck!

TV on the Radio: Always creating music on their own terms, TV on the Radio started by leaving burned CDs of their demo all over New York City. Twelve years past that (broken) CD burner, TV on the Radio is getting ready to play Deck and release a new album, Seeds. The album will hit the shelves before Deck, so be sure to get yourself a copy before the show.

Kongos: You’ve probably heard “Come with Me Now” everywhere recently, and if you like that song on the radio, you’re going to love them live. Thanks to an early release of the album Lunatic, they’re already well-established overseas (they’ve already played with Deck veterans AWOLNATION), but here we’re just starting to catch the KONGOS fever. The brothers draw from musical backgrounds as different as jazz to gospel to traditional South African music, meaning this is one diverse, but spot-on, modern alt-rock group.

Vance Joy:  The music world seemed to get caught up in Vance Joy’s “Riptide.” It took him nearly a year to release his first studio album, mostly because he was swept all over the world, quickly moving from alternative music sources with very little notoriety, to stepping up to play Seattle’s largest alternative holiday show, Deck the Hall Ball! His newest album, Dream Your Life Away, was recorded in our own backyard here in Seattle.

Royal Blood:  In a blind test, you’d never guess that the huge sound of breakthrough band Royal Blood is only a duo. Mike Kerr, on bass and vocals, and Ben Thatcher, on drums, create a wall of sound influenced by such diverse bands as Queens of the Stone Age and Led Zeppelin. The duo might have only formed in 2012, but their debut single, “Out of the Black” has been hugely popular all over the UK and US, and well loved by The End listeners.
