This event is all ages
Nearly two years after releasing their self-titled debut, TERRIBLE THINGS returns as a three piece with two new faces. Beating the “supergroup” curse of one album and done, Fred Mascherino (Taking Back Sunday, Breaking Pangaea, The Color Fred) is rejuvenated and back in the producer’s chair wearing his writing cap. “I never really stopped working on Terrible Things. We were starting to write our second record when Josh Eppard was asked to rejoin Coheed And Cambria on drums. I went completely underground to make sure that I had something before I tried to bring the band back”, explains Mascherino.
After a lot of thinking during his brief hiatus, Fred called on his sidekick Steve Curtiss from his previous band The Color Fred to replace Eppard. “I was playing drums on demos of the new songs and every time I listened back I kept thinking about the way Steve would play it. I wrote The Color Fred record with him and we work really well together. When we first talked about playing together again, we both wanted to make sure that we took this to another level beyond what we had done before so we’ve been really pushing each other this time”, comments Mascherino. Fred then tapped new talent Aaron Van Allen to carry on the duties of bass and backing vocals. “Aaron is great on just about any instrument, but it’s especially great to hear him sing on the songs”, adds Mascherino. “This is the first time in years that I’ve had a band that all lives in the same place, so we rehearse nearly every night. It’s going to make a big difference for our live performances”, explains Mascherino.
Revived and energized, Terrible Things will hit the ground running next month on their very first headline run (dates below). Their inaugural shows with the new lineup and music will kick off not so far from Fred’s hometown of Coatesville, PA in Lancaster, PA at Chameleon Club and lead them back home to Gunner’s Run in Philadelphia for a FREE show. “I wanted to play these shows because we haven’t been on tour in a long time where we got anything more than an opening set length and with new songs, we can play a lot longer. We want to play for our own fans and give them a real show, the way we would do it”, remarks Mascherino.
Terrible Things is Fred Mascherino (vocals,guitar), Aaron Van Allen (bass, backing vocals), and Steve Curtiss (drums).
The Company We Keep
The Company We Keep is a coming-together of three doe eyed veterans — arranging a melodic framework to showcase the voice of newcomer: Amy Brennan.
The project began on the road when Brian Southall [The Receiving End of Sirens / Motion City Soundtrack tour manager] presented Justin Pierre [Motion City Soundtrack] with a series of compositions for which he would eventually contribute lyrics and melodies.
While in-between MCS tours, Brian was introduced to Amy at a mutual friend's birthday party in Detroit. After learning that she was a singer, Brian found videos of Amy performing cover songs on-line. Her amazing voice and powerful presence inspired him to beg her to contribute to the project. She finally agreed, and, so, the search for a drummer began.
The search lasted only as long as it took Brian to consult his first choice — old friend, and Misery Signals drummer: Branden Morgan. Brian, Amy, and Branden will tackle the majority of performance duties, with Justin filling a role akin to that of Brett Gurewitz's in Bad Religion, as a principal writer and recurring live presence. He is very much, 'in the band,' but doesn't want his hectic schedule to serve as a hindrance to the momentum of this project.
Last Scene In Reno
Hailing from Lancaster, PA, these four friends are on a mission to
create infectious songs with their catchy hooks, soaring guitars, and
one of the tightest drum/bass rhythm sections around. In May of 2012,
Last Scene in Reno released their debut EP, “You Act As If I Have a
Choice”, which is available on iTunes:
"'You Act As If I Have A Choice' is a fine example of all the things
that people love about pop-punk. Fine drumming? Check. Gang vocals?
Check. Half-tempo, final choruses? Check. Vocal harmonies? Check.
Dueling vocals? Check. It’s all there in fine style. Overall, Last
Scene in Reno has crafted an EP that will define your summer, and take
you back to your high school glory days. It’s a fine piece of work
that begs for repeated listens, and evokes anticipation for more music
from these guys. You can hear their passion for what they do with
every note; something that many bands and novelty mainstream acts lack
these days" - Robbie Goldovich, hercampus.com/ (Apr 15, 2012)
Last Scene in Reno's latest single, "Crazy", is available for FREE
