About Me

Baltimore/DC, United States
Bridging the gap between the cold, digital, calculated sounds of the present and the rich, dynamic, personal feeling of the past, THE NEW MEDIA hatches something truly fresh. Infusing traditional 'rock' and 'pop' sounds with 21st century ideals, the band creates a unique landscape of sound and word, all while maintaining a familiar accessibility in their compositions.

Live from the Fillmore

Hi guys.  In case you didn't make it, we had a great set at the Fillmore in Silver Spring last weekend opening for our friends The Static.  Shows have been few and far between lately, but that's only because we have been so busy recording our first full album, which we have built by ourselves (and a little help from good bud Justin Day at New Noise).  We are really pleased with how it sounds so far, and we are so excited to share it with all of you.  Should be out in early 2013.  So until then, WAIT FOR IT.

Recording and stuffs

Hello there. Haven't updated this blog in a while, lots to talk about!!

The New Record! Ben and Trevor both finished up tracking drums and bass last month. The "rhythm section" really threw down some bumpin' tracks. I dare you to not tap your feet when you hear it! As I write this, Greg and Adam are dialing in some jangly sweet guitar tones, about to start guitar tracking. We're moving along quite nicely!

Shows! We've got em! DC, Philly, MD, and Bmore, plus more in the works. Been helping out lots of new friends on the road, check them out ---- Via Lotus from Ohio, The Great Socio from Philly, and Sound and Shape from Nashville are just a few. Great stuff, can't wait to party with them!

For more frequent updates, stay tuned to facebook.com/thenewmediaband, as we are on there much more often than here.

I'll leave you with a deep thought that I've been pondering lately...

"If she was a house, would you live there?"

What up Autumn!

It's our favorite time of the year. Pumpkin beers, bonfires, football, the crispness in the air... and LOTS and LOTS of writing! We've got tons of new jams in the works, so we are taking a few months off to perfect and record them. Shows will be on hold for a while, but we've got something awesome in the works for December.
Also, we will have an online store up shortly so all of our non-local friends can get our goodies. In the meantime, keep spreading the word about WAIT FOR IT, you can still download it for FREE!

Talk you jokers soon!!
