Bronze Radio Return
Bronze Radio Return
For nearly a decade, Hartford, Connecticut’s Bronze Radio Return has traveled the world, urging their listeners to dance and sing along. Their rousing, anthemic sound creates an undeniable upbeat atmosphere that’s one part dance party and another part roots-rock. If their name doesn’t ring a bell, odds are you know one of their acclaimed singles, leaving them affectionately dubbed “the band you’ve probably heard, but haven’t heard of.”

Racking up more than 60 million streams on Spotify, and with songs such as “Light Me Up,” “Further On,” and “Shake, Shake, Shake,” they have impressively notched nearly 100 high-profile placements ranging from the 2014 film St. Vincent, to commercials for Nissan and Starbucks, to numerous television shows. Along the way, their hyper-charged and hypnotic stage presence has turned bystanders into believers at festivals including Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Hangout, and Firefly, and gained international recognition with tours throughout Europe and China.

Their last LP, 2016’s Light Me Up skyrocketed them to even further success. Regarded as “infectiously catchy and fun to listen to from the very first line of the title track all the way to the very end” (The Prelude Press), the music of Bronze Radio Return’s former album cemented that these boys stand primed for impact in a big way.

Now, the five-piece Bronze Radio Return is gearing up to release a stream of new music, with their sound evolving more than ever and with their roots always firmly intact. Holding true to their previous writing and recording process, like when they escaped to Texas and Oklahoma together during the production of Light Me Up, many of the songs came to be during lead singer Chris Henderson’s recent move to Oklahoma with little more than just an air mattress. Later, the guys came together at a ranch in Texas to record this exciting chapter of the band’s progression, both musically and personally. As the band articulates:

"This latest collection of songs is a culmination of our many adventures together over the years. It’s a representation of an evolving creative process that changes with time and perspective. Who wants to read a book where every chapter is the same? This chapter is a continuation of what we started when the band began and tells a story of where we are now. The throwback elements are still there, but we want listeners to breathe the fresh air of a sound they haven’t yet expected from us."

Their new 12-song album will be rolled out as a series of singles and EPs starting in the fall of 2018 before culminating in the release of the full body of work in 2019.
The End Of America
Philadelphia natives The End of America (TEOA) caught the attention of the industry and fans alike with their debut release Steep Bay (2010), following up with the sophomore LP Shakey (2012) and the critically acclaimed eponymous S/T album in 2016. TEOA’s new single “Break Away”, due out June 7, 2019 on all digital and streaming platforms, will also be available as a limited edition 7” vinyl and features a version of Simon and Garfunkel’s “America” on the B-side.

“Break Away” is the first in a series of new songs that will be released by TEOA in 2019. TEOA is blazing new trails in the digital age by ditching the album format and releasing a new song each month for the remainder of 2019. Recorded at a barn cabin and produced by the band and mixed by Trevor Leonard, “Break Away” takes The End of America in a new bold direction, morphing acoustic instrumentation with drum loops and the bands’ signature harmonies. The result is a cohesive mix of classic harmonies and new sounds delivering a fresh outlook on what future will hold for TEOA. “Break Away was written and recorded on the spot during a break mid-tour. It was one of those sessions that felt like magic. A full moon. There was a pond full of peepers near the cabin and you can hear them on the tracks. We played on wineglasses and looped stomp/clap ideas. Lots of spontaneity and experimenting. We’re excited to let this one out of the bag”, states Brendon Thomas.

The End of America (James Downes, Trevor Leonard and Brendon Thomas) consists of a group of friends who met on the road, after singing harmonies on each other’s songs while on tour as solo artists. “We lucked out, our voices just seemed to blend together naturally. Since, we’ve been burning across the countryside, touring, recording in remote locations, just having fun. It’s great being in a band with your best friends.” The Philadelphia trio credit their name to Kerouac’s On The Road -- relating to travelling “across the groaning continent” in search of inspiration. The sound is centered on their voices, weaving 3 distinct leads into captivating harmonies over a solid foundation of Folk, Rock, and Americana. WXPN’s The Key states TEOA is, “soul-striking harmonies mixed with folk-rock melodies.”

The End of America has been recognized for their powerful live performance which highlights dynamic songwriting, harmonies and playful stage banter. They have performed at festivals across the East Coast and Midwest including the 2016 Philadelphia Folk Festival where they were voted “Favorite New Artist” and will return for a performance at The PFF in 2019. In 2017 TEOA won the Emerging Artist Showcase at Falcon Ridge Folk Fest, returning in 2018 to perform as FRFF’s “Most Wanted” band.

TEOA have shared stages with the likes of David Bromberg, Brian Fallon, Larry Campbell, Mandolin Orange, Wild Child, The Ghost of Paul Revere, Rocky Votolato and Beck. Beck invited TEOA to play at his Song Reader album release show in Los Angeles after hearing the trio's rendition of Please Leave A Light On When You Go. Their performance was broadcast live on KCRW and earned praise from Spin and Filter.
