The Material w/ Dinner And A Suit, We Are Voices & Larynx
March 13, 2013 @ 8:00 pm - 12:00 am
Hailing from Southern California, The Material has established themselves as one of the West Coast’s most dedicated up-and-comers. With their recent full length, What We Are (Brian Grider) having been released in January of 2011, the group has begun building a strong fan base nationwide. Before the release of What We Are, The Material joined up with Every Avenue, There For Tomorrow, Sing It Loud, and The Secret Handshake for the 2010 Motel 6 “Rock Yourself To Sleep Tour.” Since the start of the year, the band has toured non-stop, playing with the likes of Ivoryline on the “As Tall As Texas” tour, headlining the PictureHealing Winter Tour, and even stampeding through Austin with a week full of showcases at this past spring’s South By Southwest festival. As the year continues they’ll be joining up with the likes of New Years Day and the It Boys for a summer tour throughout the Midwest and West Coast while making stops on The Vans Warped Tour and Milwaukee’s Summerfest as one of this year’s “Emerging Artists.” As they continue to make in-roads, it is obvious that they have made an impact as press spots in MF Magazine have claimed that “The Material is more than up-an-coming…they’re smashing” (March 2011) and feature articles about the group have appeared in Beatweek Magazine (May 2011), Black Velvet Magazine (April 2011), and Substream Music Press (March 2011). In addition, original compositions by the band have made an imprint on TV shows like MTV Australia’s Freshwater Blue, MTV’s The Hills, and WB’s Sorority Forever.The result has been impressive as the band’s fans have voted The Material to perform live on MTV’s Dew Circuit Breakout out of a field of 4,000 other bands. Additionally, their fans have purchased over 300,000 downloads to date of their songs “Moving To Seattle” and “Stay Here Forever” on the video game ROCK BAND. While it has been great for the band to receive the support they have worked hard for, the members continue to stick to their roots as a positive message band, encouraging their fans and others to continue reaching for their dreams just as they have. They represent themselves as good role models to their fans by working with multiple causes while on and off the road, to make the greatest positive impact they can, both musically and as individuals.
DINNER AND A SUIT
In a music world where genre lines are increasingly blurred, Dinner And A Suit has emerged with a sonic meld that resonates with familiarity, and captivates with distinction. Formed in New Jersey by cousins Jonathan Capeci, Joey Beretta and Anthony Genca, the trio is forging a path that reflects the band’s music itself: putting the right pieces in the right places at all the right times. Since emerging in 2009, Dinner And A Suit quickly captured attention with a captivating blend of ethereal rock and distinguished pop – leading to critical acclaim, a swelling dedication of global fans and coveted live dates that have circled the band throughout the US. The spiraling success fueled Dinner And A Suit to transplant to Nashville in late 2010, where they began work on what would become ‘Since Our Departure’ – their brand new full-length album. “We left the comforts of home to pursue this dream,” explains Capeci. “And that definitely comes through on this record.” To record Since Our Departure, the band split their time between Glow in the Dark Studios in Atlanta with producer Matt Goldman (Anberlin, Underoath), then with Tyler Orr (As Cities Burn, Copeland) at First Street Studios in Cleveland TN. The resulting work is a range of bold anthems, layered with soaring melodies that are riveting with honesty. Throughout the album’s ten towering tracks, Capeci’s lush timbre weaves universal themes of forgiveness and hope, love and loss, and discovering a place in the world. “It just poured out of us,” Genca adds. “There’s a lot of passion and energy on this record. It’s an experience that we’re sharing with the listeners in a very real way.”
