NEW ATLAS EP

Atlas recently completed their debut EP with recording engineer/producer Chris Badami of Portrait Recording Studios.  The 6 songs will collectively be known as “With Love, Evelyn McHale” and will officially be out on CD on July 19th with a celebratory show at the Stanhope House.  This marks the first “official” and proper output from the band since their 3-song demo “It’s Haunting.”   Though, not a concept album, the EP tells a story of sorts:  the struggle of young woman’s relationship with her own self-worth that ultimately leads to her elegant self-induced death.  You can hear a teaser from the EP below.

Earth Stood Still Officialy Active Again!

Mike, Michelle and the gang are back! To celebrate the indie/punk rock quartet posted their debut EP and their full length on their bandcamp page.  This will be the first time this particular lineup played together since 2008 after 2 East coast tours and recording “Conveyance.”  Rest assured, however, that this is not a reunion.  The band never officially broke up.  Stream their EP, “Now to be Heard by All,” below.   M & M haven’t fallen off the music circuit completely in the time since Earth Stood Still stopped playing.  They have since formed and are currently active in the post hardcore band Atlas and released two EPS and a full length with another post hardcore band called Control.  On top of that, they’ve also rumored new material with Earth Stood Still and promised to play some shows.  I can’t help but to be super excited for this!

Members of Control and Royden form Atlas

…a post hardcore quintet in the vein of Quicksand and Brand New.  First show is tonight @ the Branchville American Legion.  Hear two songs from their upcoming EP below!
