The Real Texas EDGE Vol. 3
CD Release Party #5
Saturday, November 19th, The Edge Magazine hosted their fifth and final CD Release party of 2005 at The White Rabbit. The Real Texas EDGE Vol. 3, released by the magazine, is a limited edition two-disc set that includes some of the best bands from the South and Central Texas areas--everything from indie rock to death metal. The CD itself will not be available in stores and was given away for free to anyone who attended any one of the five release parties. The shows themselves were a showcase for the bands who appeared on the disc. And in The White Rabbit's case, there were thirteen bands, two stages, and over four hours of music. So if you didn’t make it out to any of the release parties by last week‘s show, you not only missed out on a free compilation of incredible Texas bands, you also missed out on a chance to see the best of what Texas has to offer onstage.

Quartershackle was a welcome break from what had been a primarily metal and hardcore event. In fact, the band offered a sound that was not unlike what you would expect to hear on modern rock radio: big guitar and big choruses coupled with the soulful singing of vocalist Joseph. On a song like “Sinkhole” they proved that they are very capable of crafting the perfect modern rock single. However, I liked them best when they branched out into a heavier, more jam-oriented approach to rocking out a stage. - Online Review

February 2006 Issue


Quartershackle burst onto the scene this year playing as if they were already rock stars...and it's working. Gotta love the power of positive thinking. Quartershackle placed in eight different categories, winning top honors as Group Most Deserving of a Record Deal, as well as No. 2 Best Rock Band, No. 4 Best Alternative Band, and No. 3 Best New Act. Their respective band members also placed in the top 5 in the categories of Best Guitarist, Best Bassist, and Best Drummer.

- Edge Magazine Readers Poll


This is an Austin band that has quite a bit going on for them. They dwell in the hard rock world and write the kind of big songs that sound decidedly Austin. They've also swept The Edge awards, gotten a lot of press and recognition, and even some spin on modern rock radio. I was also impressed about the quality of the package they sent us, as it seems apparent they know what it takes to get somewhere and take a shot at the next level. I was also rather happy to hear them at a strip club, which sounded great over their system. As for the music, I can't really come up with anything smart to say. You'd do well to see them live in a sea of their local supporters to get the full story. - Local Reviews

Austin based hard-rock outfit QUARTERSHACKLE have established themselves as a band with a dynamic sound and relentless stage presense. Featuring innovative hard-hitting riffs and tempo changes with clever ability and approach, their music has established a powerful connection with their fast growing fan-base. The four-piece has forged together an entirely different range of influences and created a "sound reminicient of Faith No More, Alice In Chains, and The Cult". (Sean Claes, INSITE Magazine)

The band burst onto the Austin scene in 2005 with their critically praised 3 song EP "SINKHOLE", produced by Rob Hinton of 2222 Productions (Daves Not Here, Loss Rayne, Velvet Brick, Korn, Michael Jackson) at Austin's A-Valve Studios. Through grass roots marketing more than 5,000 are in current circulation throughout Texas and the rest of the United States. The group is currently in the studio working on their full-length debut album slated for release in 2007.

"SINKHOLE" has made great strides in a short time, attaining airplay and gaining significant radio exposure for QUARTERSHACKLE as a featured artist on San Antonio's KISS FM "Texas Trax" program. With additional support from KOIL (Houston) and KROX, KOOP, and KLBJ (Austin) as well as streaming and satellite radio, QUARTERSHACKLE has "burst on the scene as if they were rockstars". (Sharon Jones, EDGE Magazine)

In addition to making The Edge Magazine's double-disc "Real Texas Edge Vol. III" compilation in 2005, in February 2006, QUARTERSHACKLE received 8 prestigous awards at the Edge's Best of 2005 Readers Poll, including "BEST GROUP DESERVING OF A RECORD CONTRACT." In October 2006, the band was again selected to be a part of the year’s more selective volume, including only 18 bands and featuring QUARTERSHACKLE's newly recorded song "Craven."

A relentless and energetic live band, QUARTERSHACKLE has gained an immense amount of attention, including the interest of organizers of the 7th Annual Heart of Texas Rockfest and Roadstar Production's Shamrock Festival, both during the South By Southwest Music Festival. (March 2006). The band has also showcased their intensity at the United Music Alliance's Regional Rockfest Tour '06 throughout Texas, and at Austin's 101X Homegrown Live Series (May 2006).

Simply put, QUARTERSHACKLE combines "A Mix of old school brutality and melody that defies conventional pigeon holing. This is a band that doesn’t follow trends". (Gramie Dee, DJ –Autopsy Radio)
