ABOUT CONCORD AMERICA:
Based out of Atlanta, Concord America is a trio consisting of brothers John and Vinny Restivo and friend Ben Presley. Claiming influences like Black Lips, Pixies and Cage The Elephant, the group formed around their mutual love for Rock & Roll but found their unique sound in areas ranging from classic Garage and late-50's Doo-Wop all the way to Proto Grunge, Power-Pop and the modern Surf Revival.
The Restivo brothers were a natural rhythm section from the start. "John was already drumming and put the idea in my head to play bass," says Vinny. Until the three met at their job in a seedy pizza joint, the teen brothers were playing in the bands you might expect to find in suburban garages across America. "What really made us want to start a band with Ben," John says, "is that we saw him get past security at a Cage the Elephant show. He jumped on stage during "Ain't No Rest for the Wicked" in short shorts, suspenders, combat boots and a sailor hat and did a stage dive." Guitarist and singer Ben Presley seemed to be just the catalyst John and Vinny needed. In 2013, Concord America released their debut LP, Shag Nasty- a blistering lo-fi rock record that solidified the dynamic between Presley and the Restivo brothers. The band plans for their follow-up EP release, Suns Out Guns Out, to drop May 27, 2014 via Post-Echo.
The season 7 premiere guests featured some cast members we haven't seen much of for a while.
This year's Rotterdam event was definitely one to remember.
New album 'Flower Boy' comes later this summer.
