Should you ever feel like wasting a few hours researching an infinite list of obscure musicians, MySpace is the place to go. The Web site is jammed with so many bands in so many different genres that distinguishing yourself can be difficult. JuiceheaD, however, is one of the fortunate sorts who struck gold via MySpace.

A few years ago, the Chicago Punk band posted a message on the page of Misfits Records, which led producer/Osaka Popstar leader John Cafiero to them. Soon, JuiceheaD was signed to the label and Cafiero was producing a single for the band. The trio has since played alongside The Adicts and The U.K. Subs, and they’re currently supporting Misfits (the band’s label’s namesake) on a national run. Sometime this fall, Misfits Records is scheduled to issue a new JuiceheaD album called How to Sail a Sinking Ship.

Even with that major stroke of luck, the band’s growth hasn’t come without work, as they’ve been developing a melodic and scrappy Punk sound since the early 2000s. 

JuiceheaD opens for Misfits at Southgate House Sunday.  Go here for Reyan Ali's full Sound Advice recommendation.
