Athletics is an Ambient/Indie Rock band that formed in the fall of 2008 in Oneonta, NY. The band started when Garrett Yaeger and John Cannon left The Cast Before The Break. Garrett started Athletics as a solo project but it quickly became a full band endeavor when he enlisted John Cannon, Howie Cohen and Jimmy Boyce
As a band they wrote enough material to record a five song EP entitled "Sleep Comes In Interludes," which was recorded in Oneonta and produced by TJ Foster who was their former bandmate in The Cast Before The Break. Read more on Last.fm
We’ll be tracking drums tomorrow for a new record.

While we’ve been working at our new self-produced full length, we’ve been making some louder & faster tunes on the side.
Yesterday John’s band (literally all John, he plays everything) Brotherless released OOF. It’s the best punk record we’ve heard in a long time. Don’t sleep on this. (https://brotherless.bandcamp.com/album/oof)
Howie is currently ripping bass with latewaves. They released the “Partied Out” EP earlier this fall. (https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/partied-out-ep/id1271814444)
Zach & Jimmy’s new band The Manner Of released their first single “PFLD” a couple weeks ago. (https://themannerof.bandcamp.com/releases)
Hope you guys enjoy some new tunes while we perfect the new full length. Thanks so much for always being there♥️ can’t wait for you to hear what we’re cooking up.

Hope you all are having a happy new year!
P.S. John wants to play a show around his birthday (March). DM us some ideas around NJ / NY.

It's been just over a month since we released "When to Run, Where to Hide," and shared a stage together for the first time in years. Thank you to everyone that's downloaded a copy, shared with their friends, and given us an overwhelming amount of positive feedback and support. If you're late to the party, you can find it here for "name-your-price." There's more to come...
