Hey guys! Hope everyone had an awesome weekend and a great start to the week! I can't wait to share the top music news from the week! This week, I get to introduce you to a new band and the latest concert line up! Let's get started!
I am super excited to share this band with all my followers! The Hails are a Florida native band getting ready to release their first EP "Impel" this Thursday on all streaming sites! On Sunday, the band released their first single “Parking Lot,” which has already created a lot of buzz in the music industry. After talking with band about their experience creating the album, they said:
"It was very cool, very exciting. We had been a band for about a year and decided it was time to record 5 of our songs for an EP. Our producers, Joel Levy and Bobby MacIntyre, are true characters. Bobby’s studio in Miami, called Studio 71, is a world of its own -filled with candle-lighting, red furniture, old records and instruments. It certainly was not difficult for us to get into a creative mode while we were there. We recorded there for about a week in December of 2016 and finished up the EP throughout the spring of 2017. Overall, it was a rewarding experience and we’re glad to finally share it with the world."
The Hails will be performing on South Florida's NBC 6 In the Mix on Thursday at 11:30am! Make sure to tune in! As for what is next for this young band, they told Fearless Music:
"Definitely playing a lot of shows. We’ll be heading back to Gainesville for the fall semester, where we’ll continue to write and gig. Hopefully, we can start to travel around the state a bit, too. We want to grow the audience and play for as many people as we can. We have several other songs that we will record and release in the not-so-distant future."
