Future Generations has been busy since the NYC quintet released its debut album in July 2016. In 2017, Future Generations played an official SXSW showcase in March and continued a streak of successful shows including in NYC, Philly, Nashville, Dallas, and DC. In November, FG toured out to Chicago and Atlanta to support Savoir Adore, and played with them again this February.
In addition to “Stars,” Future Generations singles “Thunder In The City” and “Coast” garnered over 1 million streams combined. “You’ve Got Me Flush” has emerged as the band’s second-most popular song, racking up almost 1 million Spotify plays on its own. The album has led to favorable comparisons to MGMT and Passion Pit, with the band’s love of catchy hooks and dynamic electronic production evident throughout.
Future Generations is Eddie Gore (vox, keys, guitar), Mike Sansevere (synthesizer, guitar, percussion), Eric Grossman (guitar), Devon Sheridan (bass) and Dylan Wells (percussion). Gore, Sansevere and Grossman met while in college at Fordham University and the 3 quickly bonded over sharing a nerd-like, academic appreciation of all forms of pop, rap and rock music. The three have been writing and recording music together since the first day they met; Junior year, Gore recruited Sheridan, a fellow Fordham 2015 classmate, to join the band.
After graduation, Future Generations recorded in Brooklyn with Eli Janney (Tweens) and enlisted Claudius Mittendorfer (Neon Indian) for production. They added Wells in March 2016, after he tried out for the band via a Craiglist ad. The band currently lives together in Brooklyn.
