Into It. Over It.
Into It. Over It., the brainchild of Chicago, IL musician Evan Weiss having played in a number of bands over the years, Weiss had originally conceived Into it. Over It. as a means to break free from a musical rut. His project quickly took on a life of its own and in true DIY fashion, Weiss went on to release a steady string of 7″, splits, cassettes, and LP's while touring the world non-stop, both as solo artist and with a full band including tours with such acts as Frank Turner, The Wonder Years, Where's My Band Tour (w/ Matt Pryor, Dustin Kensrue, Chris Conley), Owen and KOJI (with whom he recorded a split, which was named by the Associated Press as one of the year's 'Most Overlooked Albums Of 2010′, alongside artists like Mumford and Sons, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, and Gucci Mane.)
In discussing the future of Into It. Over It., Weiss explains, "With the new year, it came time to turn a page. Not only was Triple Crown excited about what I wanted to make and how I wanted to make it, but they gave me the tools to do so. It's been a brand new process for me. Uncharted territory. They have been supportive above and beyond to help me be able to be the musician I really want to be. To craft the record I really wanted to make. I couldn't think of a better home."
The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die
The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid To Die have announced the forthcoming release of their third full-length, Always Foreign. Due out September 29 on Epitaph, Always Foreign follows the Connecticut-bred collective’s acclaimed 2015 album Harmlessness.
Produced by TWIABP guitarist Christopher Teti, Always Foreign confronts everything from the opioid epidemic to xenophobia to emotional abuse in relationships. Throughout the album, TWIABP match their sprawling arrangements and layered lyricism with a raw emotionality.
“When we started writing we were fresh off Trump being elected, so there’s an anger to the album that’s different from what we’ve done in the past,” says TWIABP vocalist David F Bello. “There’s a lot more resistance thinking throughout the songs—not in a way that’s strictly anti-Trump, but also addressing things like white supremacy and controlling elements of the state.”
Along with Bello, Cyr, and Teti, the TWIABP lineup includes Tyler Bussey (guitar, banjo, synth, vocals), Dylan Balliett (guitar, vocals), Katie Dvorak (synth, vocals), and Steven K Buttery (percussion, vocals). Formed in Connecticut in 2009, TWIABP made their full-length debut with Whenever, If Ever (a 2013 release hailed as “revolutionary” by Pitchfork) and later delivered Harmlessness (praised as “bold and complex and dazzling” by Noisey and “grandiose and dramatic” by NPR).
A Great Big Pile of Leaves
Brooklyn, NY-based trio, A Great Big Pile of Leaves got their start in 2007 when guitarist/singer Peter Weiland and drummer Tyler Soucy took time from their prior projects to start writing material of their own. The first six songs came together as the self-released EP The Fiery Works, which the duo put out as a free download on their Web site. As word spread online, the band's fanbase grew along with Weiland and Soucy's
excitement to get back to recording.
Continuing with the formula of self-producing, The Fiery Works II followed shortly afterward and was also released as a free download. Within the next year, the digital releases were downloaded over 12,000 times and the group prepared for a live setting with the addition of Tucker Yaro on bass. After playing several shows and writing a batch of new songs over the next few months, the newfound trio prepared themselves to record a full-length record Have You Seen My Prefrontal Cortex?
Papermoons' is the moniker under which Matt Clark and Daniel Hawkins have been releasing and performing music now for five years. In 2007 they issued their first effort in the form of a now critically acclaimed 7″ EP on Team Science Records.
Following this was the groups first full length, New Tales, which was originally released as a CD in 2008 through the Team Science label. The record appeared on a handful of year-end lists as well as being selected as 'album of the year' by the Houston Free Press in 2008. In 2009 The band toured the United States heavily while Deep Elm Records reissued 'New Tales' as a digital product.
Though they never officially disbanded, Papermoons' took a few years off from writing and touring to attend to their personal lives. In 2010 and 2011 Papermoons' music was featured on several MTV network programs as well as on certain Apple brand products.
