Hey all. Started to demo some ideas. We wanted to keep you in the loop. Check out our Instagram as well as this page to get updates. (@athleticsmusic) Maybe we'll do the live stream thing once we figure out the interwebs. Hope you all are having a happy new year! <3 Athletics 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...
Good evening, friends. Hope you're all enjoying the new EP. Friendly "other projects" PSA: NJ - next Thursday, September 29th, Ghost House (Jimmy, Howie, & Zach, along with our beautiful angel child Athletics fam member Erik) will be playing The Saint in Asbury Park with our old friends from Albany, NY, Stellar Young. WNY/Rochester - John's now annual "Brotherless Party" will be taking place November 5th at The Bug Jar in Rochester Come hang out and witness our other slow moving endeavors and sing along. ❤️
The time has come. “When to Run, Where to Hide” is officially born. This release, although short in length, carries a lot of weight and personal meaning to the five of us. We’re so lucky to be able to still make music, as slow-going as it may be, and we have you, our wonderful, patient, loving fans, to thank for that. The EP is available on our Bandcamp page. It is also available on all major digital retailers. We want you to obtain it however is easiest for you, although we strongly encourage the “pay what you want” method on our Bandcamp. As previously mentioned, we plan to record our next release as independently as possible. This means acquiring more recording gear, renting out space, and taking time off from our professional lives. By downloading the songs directly from us, that money will go straight in to the continuous rejuvenation of this band and all of our future endeavors. Thank you to Chris Vandeviver at Brass Palace for tracking drums and putting up with John overnight. Thank you to Pete Steinkopf for having us at Little Eden and for tracking guitars, bass, vocals, and for putting up with our completely unorthodox songwriting/recording situation. Thank you to Greg Dunn for yet another beautiful mixing job. Thank you to Mike Kalajian at Rogue Planet for taking on mastering and finalizing these songs, getting us stoked in a big way. Thank you to Julie Chechinksi for the incredible artwork that ties everything together better than we could have ever imagined. And thank you, all of you, for still listening, believing, and putting up with our antics over the last 8 years. We can’t wait to show you what’s next. Cheers, Athletics <3 https://athleticsmusic.bandcamp.com/album/when-to-run-where-to-hide-3
