“…thoroughly enjoyable ’90s style indie rock.” – The Big Takeover
Very Americans is an indie rock band from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania that consists of ex-members of Junction (Art Monk Construction), The Commercials (Blackout Records), and Safari So Good (Takeover Records).
The members’ previous bands all have a history of releasing records on prominent indie labels, touring nationally and internationally, and have had the chance to share the stage with many influential bands in the hardcore and punk community such as Fugazi, Nation Of Ulysses, Born Against, Supertouch, Saves The Day, At The Drive In, Sensefield, Cursive, Boy Sets Fire, and Me Without You to name a few.
The “Back From The Dead 7 Inch” was the band’s first release, and was released digitally and on limited edition, hand numbered, white vinyl on Ship Out Recordings. While only two songs, the 7 inch showcased the melodic nature and maturity that is present in the bands’ writing. The release received many positive reviews, and the band quickly headed back to the studio to record a follow up EP.
Displaying superb precision and musicianship, “Stereo Types'” driving and atmospheric indie-rock recalls everything from the Doves’ “Lost Souls” LP to the likes of Superchunk, Sunny Day Real Estate, Radiohead, Coldplay, Chamberlain and more. After recording their forthcoming EP with renowned producer J. Robbins, the band signed with prominent indie label Eulogy Recordings where they’ll be releasing their latest effort on CD and digital formats on January 21, 2014, with a special edition, hand numbered pink 12″ vinyl release set for March 18th through Rock Paper Records.
In addition to a busy 2013 recording and touring the extent of the east coast, the band also recently wrote and recorded the new theme song for The Harrisburg Senators minor league baseball team, a farm team for The Washington Nationals. The song can be heard at the stadium at the beginning of each game, and is featured in radio commercials for the team. The band will also be featured as guests on The Artie Lange Show on Friday, November 15th where the band will perform two songs live in studio, followed by an interview w/ the band by Lange. The show can be heard on Direct TV channel 239 and Sirius XM Radio channels 92, 165 and 208.
