It’s a new year and that means an entire new year of new music. Here’s what you should look for this year.
Imora - Happily Never After - Release: Available now
Purchase on iTunes
Carousel Kings - A Slice of Heaven - Release: March 13th
“Well they can expect some older songs remixed and remastered as well as 5 brand new songs. The only way I can describe the newer songs is pop punk polarized. The poppy parts are poppier, and the heavy parts are heavier. haha. Also mention our signing to CI and what not, we gotta hype that.” - Brad Herr, Guitarist
Giants at Large and Major League - Cities and States - Release: February 1st
“You should expect awesomeness. Our side is a little different then what we’ve written in the past but still has the ‘Major League’ feel and Giants at Large wrote some of the best stuff I’ve ever heard, in my opinion. All around this split is a solid record.” Nick Trask, Vocalist
Giants at Large - Doubt - Release: Spring
“This CD’s more mature than our other releases. It reflects how we’ve grown as a band. The EP was recorded like 2 weeks into being a band, this one’s after over a year and a few tours, so we really grew together through everything.” - Brian Thomann, Bassist
Sudden Ascent - Untitled EP - Release TBA
Free the Empire - Untitled - Release: March-April
“We’re recording at Atrium Audio (in Lancaster), it’s a little more ‘poppy’ than what we have done before. It’s gonna be digitally released with limited pressings and it’s gonna have tits on the cover, I mean it won’t.” -Josh Nichols, Vocalist
One Year Later - The Sound of a Broken World - Release: March 13th
The band has announced that they have signed with CI Records.
A Seamless Getaway - Untitled EP - Release: Spring/Summer
“We are recording it now but it sounds fantastic” - Ben Shelly, Bassist
Shotgun No Blitz - Untitled - Release TBA
Knee Deep and Sinking - Something Seasonal - Release TBA
“I wouldn’t say it’s a concept album but each song has a theme tied back into one of the four seasons.” - Charles Bernard, Vocalist
The Show and Tells - Bird Pants: the Musical - Release: Late February
“The album will consist of 11 tracks and will be sold digitally on Bandcamp and physical copies will be sold at shows.” - Dalton Rhone, Guitarist

Also we liked to personally congratulate Carousel Kings and One Year Later on getting signed to CI Records. You deserve this dudes.
