Review, ERIE, PA:
★⊇ The band shares: “We’re so excited the album is finally out, we’ve been waiting so long for this, especially with all the COVID setbacks we’ve experienced throughout the process! We’re really proud of all these songs and we hope that you love them just as much as we do!”
★⊇ They continue: “To say we’ve been waiting a long time for you to hear this album would be such an understatement! We’ve been writing this album for almost 4 years now & in the recording/production process for about a year. We’re all so proud of what we created & couldn’t have asked for a better team to do it with! We can’t wait for you all to hear Wish I Missed U, it’s almost here!!!”
★⊇ Concrete Castles is currently on tour with Against The Current. Fans can catch them at upcoming shows in Dallas, Los Angeles, Brooklyn, and Boston. For more information, please see below or visit: http://www.concretecastles.band/
★⊇ Like The Killers and Imagine Dragons before them, Concrete Castles started as a cover band. Except instead of honing their skills off the strip in Las Vegas, they’ve been building their cover presence on YouTube. The result is over 1 Million YouTube Subscribers and a quarter billion streams.
★⊇ While the success from doing covers has been gratifying, the band learned that the more you cover and dissect pop and rock classics, the more you understand what about them works. Despite their young ages — vocalist Audra Miller is only 19, drummer Sam Gilman and guitarist Matt Yost are both 20 — the trio possess a profound instinct for the intricacies of song construction.
★⊇ The band began writing their own original music and brought in John and Stephen Gomez (of TWIN XL) to produce the new album and help bring those songs to life. Their debut landed on many prominent “Most Anticipated” lists prior to its release.
★⊇ Concrete Castles has also worked with songwriters including Blake Harnage (PVRIS), Tyler Smyth (Lights, Blessthefall), Jayden Seeley (With Confidence), Mark Maxwell (Lindsey Stirling, Afrojack), Esjay Jones (Alient Ant Farm, Frank Zummo).
★⊇ Concrete Castles ultimately shaped a dynamic sound that speaks to the eclectic nature of the band, whose members grew up on everything from country (Miller) to ’80s hair metal (Yost) to classic rock and emo (Gilman). Now the band is ready to show everyone what they’ve learned.
