Room Full of Strangers
While still surfing the wake of their European tour buzz Room Full of Strangers returns for US dates to conclude their Bad Vacation tour and album. An album that landed several singles such as 'Guest Bath' on hundreds of radio stations across the US and Europe. Additionally, on this short US run the Strangers will be playing cuts from yet another record that is currently un-released and will be recorded with Power Pop legend Frank Secich (Blue Ash, Deadbeat Poets, Stiv Bators Disconnected Band). The press got it right when saying that "Room Full of Strangers is a band best experienced live," as the Strangers are known to deliver a theatrically dazzling and aurally inspiring show.
Since its start in the winter of 2010, Former Belle has taken on many different outfits, all led by frontman, Bruno Catrambone. The project self-released a full band EP entitled Sounds From The Ground. Former Belle backed their first release with multiple regional tours as well as a five-week European tour. This helped to shape the project into its new-found home of both full band and solo performances. After a year-long break while Catrambone pursued his other project, CRUISR, Bruno's downtime between tours, as well as writing on the road, led him to collect new songs mixed with revisited old material to form a new EP out on April 8th on Randm Records.
The Commuters are an alternative rock band that hail from New York, but their kinetic, personal anthems capture an alt-rock essence that aspires toward worldwide appeal. Their 2012 debut, Rescue, earned the band accolades and exposure from outlets as wide-reaching and influential as college radio, mtvU, PureVolume and Guitar World. But more importantly, it spoke to listeners in a direct, uncomplicated way that created a devoted worldwide audience thanks to the band's songs being equal parts melody and honesty. There 2016 EP "Before I Was Born" is out on August 12 and has already garnered rave reviews. Come check them out at their EP release show.
"With NYC roots and a worldwide appeal, the band is sure to steal your heart before the song's three minutes is up." - Idobi Radio
"The Commuters make the kind of thoughtful rock music that resonates with all the right emotions and takes serious cues from heartfelt confessionals. Their new single, "Rescue," is a prime example, utilizing soaring guitar work and deeply felt vocals to create a piece of music that's as vulnerable as it is blunt." – PureVolume.com
"With their debut album "Rescue," the band is well on the way to positioning itself on the forefront of today's rock scene. "Rescue" is a collection of 11 anthemic rock songs that are sure to place the band among others like The Fray and Coldplay." – Washington Square News
