It is September 22nd 2013 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
The band snagging this week's 'Song of the Week' featured spot dwells in Old Bridge, New Jersey. And, of course, their catchy pop/rock music has certainly created a buzz for these five young men.
Dominick Cuce (vocals), Rob Chiarappa (guitar / backing vocals), Mikey McDonald (guitar), Kevin Smart (bass) and Mike Chiarappa (drums), better known as The Stolen, first started with their music in late 2009. But, over the last [nearly] four years, the guys have managed to get their name around in the music industry. And, they currently sit at [just over] six and a half thousand 'likes' on their official band Facebook page.
It all started in October of 2011 when The Stolen released their very first EP. Titled This Never Ends, the guys instantly earned fans with the EPs incredible six songs. And, when they released their first full length record, titled Grand Slam! For The Home Team, on November 21st 2012, their fans just could not get enough.
Grand Slam! For The Home Team, which holds nine original tunes, was an instant hit. And, quite frankly, fans could not wait to hear when these young men would be releasing something next.
Most recently, The Stolen have [just] released a brand new split EP, with friends A Will Away, a pop/rock/alternative band from Naugatuck, Connecticut. The EP, simply titled Acoustic Split, showcases four songs in total, two from each band. And, this week's 'Song of the Week', Borderlines, is featured as track number three on the new EP.
Borderlines combines unique harmonies, echoing and an overall addictive acoustic sound. And, together with Dominick's superb vocal skills and overall well written lyrics, this song is truly complete.
So, it is no wonder why this band has already shared the stage with notable bands such as Neon Trees, The Offspring, Allstar Weekend, Man Overboard and many, many more. It is evident they know how to produce catchy and memorable tunes, always keeping fans wanting more. Plus, these guys just recently played a 2013 Vans Warped Tour date.
The Stolen definitely know what they are doing, keeping me, as well as their fans, always excited for more. And, their song, Borderlines, undoubtedly deserves this week's 'Song of the Week' featured spot.
If you are like me, unable to catch the guys live just yet, make sure you head on over to their official Youtube Channel. While you are there you can check out videos and updates the guys have been releasing, including this week's 'Song of the Week', Borderlines, here:
