Synth Rock Release & NYC Dates: Jump Into the Gospel

From a media release:

Synth Rock Release & NYC Dates: Jump Into the Gospel
June Residency at Pianos in NYC - June 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th

New York, NY
- Summertime recalls bad Hollywood movies, less clothes, and funny tanlines. But what about music? New York's synth rockers Jump Into The Gospel kick off the scorching temperatures with a new single and a slew of NYC dates.

On May 31, The Music Slut premiered the band's latest single "2012" to celebrate the band's June residency at Pianos June 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th. With spunky vocals reminiscent of Talking Heads' David Byrne and The Rapture's Luke Jenner, and guitars and synths oozing with bright vivacity, "2012" adds up to pure summer music. 

Be sure to catch JITG each Wednesday this June at Pianos for a night of the warm, fuzzy, new wave rock that we've all come to love. For all those who splurged on other summer delicacies (ie. kiddie pools, jet skis, frozen margaritas), the final show of JITG's residency on June 29th will be a free one.

Jump Into The Gospel - "2012" (The Music Slut Premiere)

Comprised of frontman Louis Epstein, guitarist Ben Vescovi, bassist Lakis Pavlou, keyboardist Erik Tonnessen (tours with Holy Ghost!), and Chris Stein (tours with The Drums), Jump Into The Gospel contains the indie make-up necessary to make a deep crater in the New York music scene, in a serious way.




In the spirit of proper DIY, Jump Into The Gospel have also released a self-titled 7" EP which includes a trifecta of bangers, along with a remix by Grvrbbrs (members of Cobra Starship). The EP was recorded with Ben Liscio (who has collaborated with producers and artists Rich Costey, Dave Sitek, The Strokes, and TV on the Radio). Jump Into The Gospel have already begun turning heads with their full-throttle approach to live performance. Nylon Magazine gushed saying "the songs might have a sugary, guilty-pleasure vibe, with music this good, you definitely don't have anything to feel guilty about".  With a spate of new songs on the way, be sure to catch them for all released and unreleased gems during their Pianos residency starting June 8th at Pianos.

• June 8th  -   Pianos, NYC - 10pm - w/ Secret Music,  Terror in a Western Town, Chains of Love, Beat Music
• June 15th  - Pianos, NYC - 10pm - w/ Living Days

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
