Guerilla Toss is The Deli's Best Emerging New England Band of 2012

New England Music Fans,

We are proud to announce that The Deli New England’s Best of 2012 Emerging Artist is Guerilla Toss! This uncompromising, bizarre industrial/dada five piece (pictured and streaming below) gathered multiple votes from our jury of scene experts, which allowed them to end up on top. Kudos also to pop punkers Fat Creeps, who placed second, and orchestral blues sextet The Bridgebuilders, who sneaked in thuird position thanks to the good performance in our Readers and Fans' Poll.

Please take a look at our chart of 60 New England area artists below. The highest value of votes came from our jurors, who included individuals professionally involved in the local scene. This includes promoters, venue owners, press, DJs and other music experts. The remainder of the votes was compiled by The Deli New England contributors, readers, and open submissions voted on by national Deli editors.
