Based in Brooklyn, New York, Curran Reynolds started his PR career in 2000 as the head of publicity at Earache Records' New York office, then moved on to become one of the most respected indie publicists in the game. As a writer, his work has been published in VICE, Mass Appeal, High Times, The Journal, and other magazines. He is the founder of Precious Metal, a weekly series of live shows in New York City that ran for seven years and is credited with helping revitalize the city's metal scene. He made albums and toured the world as the drummer for Today Is the Day and Wetnurse, and currently writes, records and performs music under the name Body Stuff.

Based in San Diego, California, Justin Pearson is a musician and label owner who has helped shape the course of the indie music scene since the early '90s. He is the founder of Three One G Records and a member of such bands as The Locust, Head Wound City, Retox, and Dead Cross. He is the author of several books, including From the Graveyard of the Arousal Industry and How To Lose Friends and Irritate People, and a film actor, appearing most recently in Asia Argento's Incompresa with Charlotte Gainsbourg.

Based in Brooklyn, New York, Brandon Gallagher is a musician, publicist, and graphic designer. As the drummer, visual artist, and business mind behind Old Wounds, he quickly built that band up from scratch into a national act on Warped Tour. Having left Old Wounds, he is now a member of Funeral Fires playing bass, and Coarse playing drums and doing vocals. His artwork has appeared on the shirts, flyers and websites of countless bands while his eye for design provides the basis for The Chain's aesthetic. Since relocating to NYC he has also worked on photo shoots in both production and art department for brands like Adidas and Converse.
