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.

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!!

New Release!

So we are officially releasing a split 7" with our good friends Vinny Vegas! We go into the studio with our boy Justin Day in Glen Burnie this weekend to record "Wait For It", and we couldn't be more excited. BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE!!! Since we can only fit one song on this thing, we will ALSO be releasing "Celebrate", digitally, free, as a bonus track, just for fun. Keep your peepers peeled for an epic release party in early September.

See you tomorrow at Chapala's!
