T0W3RS Release New Tracks






Raleigh, NC-based band T0W3RS who we loved so much at Hopscotch last year (you can see the review here) have released two new tracks onto their bandcamp site. They played one of their very first shows at The Hive at Hopscotch last year and they will be performing at the festival once again this year. The band is spearheaded by Derek Torres, who plays in many bands all over Raleigh including Lilac Shadows. The rest of the members of the bands are also talented musicians including a member of The Love Language.

Their new LP comes out on tape and digital download May 2nd, and the vinyl will follow later. It was produced by Sam Logan and mixed by Brian Paulson who has done things with Wilco, The Rosebuds, Beck, and others. I hope these guys come down to SC to showcase their new album before Hopscotch, but if not, I cannot wait to see them there.

About the Author

Yes, I was named after famous british polar bear Rupert. In fact, I was named after a cat that was named after that cartoon bear. This is exactly the reason why I’d have to say an orange cat is my spirit animal. Though, it’s kind of more like this cat is my spirit goddess. My spirit animal is a bit more like a grizzly duck, which is a grizzly bear with a duck’s beak. Two reasons: 1) When I wake up I am angry and grumble a lot, like a grizzly bear but once I wake up I am (usually) friendly and I quack a lot, and 2) I own a sweater with a grizzly bear on it and one with a duck on it. I am obviously obsessed with music and everything to do with music. I have been to over 80 concerts, I am in a band called One Two Skidoo, and I also co-host a radio show of that same name on WUSC. I was born in a country called London (I would say England, but you Americans seem to be set on the fact that England is only London). I was actually born in Brighton, England, but I don’t wanna confuse you too much so we’ll say I’m from London. I then moved to a super freezing area of Canada. You’re probably thinking “but all of Canada is super freezing!”. That’s not true. Well, kind of not true. I do that school thing at the University of South Carolina, and I write about music on this website, obviously. David Stringer is my hero.
