They clinched victory at the 2023 Kids Rock For Kids Battle of The Bands and have graced stages at notable events like Long Island’s Great South Bay Music Festival and Rockaway Beach’s Rock Stock & Barrels Surf & Skate Festival. Their music video for “NEVERMIND” made it to the jumbotron at Washington, DC’s iHeart Radio Jingle Ball in 2022. In the studio, they collaborated with Grammy Award winner Steve Addabbo and are set to work with legendary music producer Gordon Raphael. They recently embarked on a 7-city tour with metal band Bastardane on the East Coast in the summer of ’23.
Now, the young and talented alternative rock band hailing from Queens and Long Island, boasts a unique sound that seamlessly combines melodic, heavy, and ambient elements. Their latest single “MARTYR“, released on late october, offers a glimpse of their distinctive style, with a full album slated for 2024. The band, comprised of college students including Dylan Trif, Charlie LoMonaco, John Devito, Ben Bustamante, and Brendan Sandhovel, has already garnered praise for their musical depth and maturity, standing out in their genre. According to them, “”MARTYR” is about lost relationships; it can be love or family.. just basically screwing up and losing people and trying to act like you do not care, but inside you are dying over it. You are a “MARTYR” because you created the chasm and you are going strong still, but then you realize it is wrong. We all need love and our family in our lives.“
