Poised on the brink of hugeness, these downhome boys from a small American town have a big sound and a growing following and they’re coming to rock Greenbelt. With expansive choruses and muscular guitars they’ve drawn comparisons with Switchfoot and Foo Fighters. They?ve been building up a noise locally but are now ready for the big time, marked by the release of their first album, Even Heroes Need A Parachute, on ForeFront records.
They?re pretty happy with the album but the live show is where it?s really at, and the boys give 110%. ?The fans deserve to see you put literally everything you have into the music,? says TBR guitarist Adam Smith. And they?re nice guys too. Singer Ben Olin reckons ?if we play for three people that are excited about the music and have a great time, we’re really satisfied, and I think that approach is what will help us connect with people and let them know that we’re human beings that happen to strap on guitars and dance around.”
And the band name? Ben explains: ?We want all to know that there is a real beautiful republic beyond this world, waiting for us to take hold of it in the here and now.?
