It is September 1st 2013 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
Throwbacks, the band earning this week's 'Song of the Week' spot, with their song Limits, was [first] launched in April of 2012. And, their progressive/pop/punk sound has been resonating with fans ever since, earning them just under one thousand 'likes' on their official band Facebook page.
From Brick, New Jersey, Throwbacks consists of Jeremy Lotruglio (vocals), Anthony Dentino (guitar), Tommy Sisbarro (guitar), Dan Szpakowski (bass) and Sean Salsano (drums / backing vocals). And, well, their story seems pretty great so far, proving this band deserves this week's 'Song of the Week' spot.
The band's vocalist, Jeremy Lotruglio, shared a little insight into the beginnings of this band, stating, "Throwbacks had originally formed in 2012 with a different vocalist. They released one EP together, titled New Beginnings, and then I joined in June of 2013 when the band decided to switch vocalists."
Throwbacks released their incredible single, Limits, on July 4th 2013 to their official Bandcamp page, as well as their Soundcloud page. In [literally just] two months the guys have definitely been building up the views and comments on their Soundcloud page. Limits has earned six hundred and thirty one plays, thirty one 'likes' and ten fan comments, some of which saying, "You guys are great, upload more!", "Dude, you guys are great!", "Thank god I found the lyrics. I discovered you guys like twenty minutes ago and I was going nuts!" and many more.
Lately, the guys have been keeping busy while they prepare for their next EP release. Vocalist, Jeremy Lotruglio, gave a little information about that as well, saying, "Our next EP is completely written and we plan on heading into the studio to record it later in the fall!"
So, with the incredible music these guys have put out to their fans so far, it is obviously apparent they are talented and dedicated to their music. And, of course, this new EP will certainly be nothing but amazing.
Definitely keep in the loop with Throwbacks and keep your eye out for an EP release date. These guys have truly earned this week's 'Song of the Week' spot.
Throwbacks released an official music video for Limits, this week's 'Song of the Week', back on July 4th 2013 on bassist Dan Szpakowski's Youtube Channel. Of course you will want to check out the video, which can be found here:
