Brand spanking new punk band Deposit Man from Oulu, Finland has released their first single. The anger-charged track “Tyranny” leads Deposit Man’s debut EP, which is due to be released during May 2016.
Formed in November 2014 by four punk Dads in their 30s, Deposit Man plays melodic punk with lyrics that cover politics in the government, at work and at home. The band consists of four Oulu-based players: Lance Fono (New Zealand/Samoa), Elias Casanova (Spain), Matti Honkala and Janne Knuuti (Finland).
“Tyranny” was composed by Elias Casanova with lyrics written by Lance Fono. “I wrote it to piss off liberals, but I am a liberal, but I hate liberals”, says New Zealand born Samoan singer/guitarist Lance Fono.

Born Kendra Scanlon, Tuff like Iron is a fashion designer turned musician from New York. As anundeniable firebrand,she is inspired by her Trinidadian heritage and a kaleidoscopic life lived between Kingston and Brooklyn.
At the top of 2014 she released her Jah Ova Evil produced debut ‘1986 – EP’ and has since arrested the attention of roots reggae masses with the singles ‘I’m Talking To You’, ‘Equal Rights’,‘Keep Your Head Up’and ‘Mr. Babywrong’ feat Zionites.
In February 2015, her eponymous ‘Tuff Like Iron’ single appeared on the Black Roots Riddim produced by Fyakin of Nyle Banks Music. The song is the artist’s own affirmation of her purpose in the musical jungle. It skillfully doubles as an anthem for all determined to rise above adversity and seek a higher consciousness.
Her soon to be released ‘Be Still and Know’ double disc album was produced by Conscious Riddims Records out of Hawaii. This highly anticipated album is mastered by Laurent ‘Tippy’ Alfred of I Grade Records. It will also feature roots heavyweights like Midnite, Ras Batch, Prezident Brown, PerfectGiddimani among others.
