HOOOOOO-LEEEEE SHIIIIIIIIIIT! I’m not sure we’ve been this excited about a Band Spotlight since featuring NYC punks Proper! DC punks, Celebration Summer have only been around since 2019 but you wouldn’t know it by hearing them. They sound like grizzled veterans with expertly constructed music laid behind raw vocals which bellow out relatable and very well written lyrics. Add to that extremely catchy riffs and choruses and these guys make the perfect counter to anyone who says there’s no “good” punk rock these days.
We guess we’re not the only one’s who have noticed their talent, because their debut full length album Patience In Presence is being released via the illustrious A-F Records here in the US and by Shield Recordings abroad. and will be available on September 23rd (pre order here). Great minds think alike! When we asked Lead vocalist/guitarist Nate Falger about the newest single/title track “Patience in Presence” he said: “It provides a glimpse of how I deal with anxiety. The lyrics are a reminder to myself to be present in every moment despite the daily, overwhelming weight I feel on myself.”
If you dig music videos, they’ve also released three of them for tracks off of the upcoming eleven track LP: “Fraud“, “Disconnected” and the aforementioned title track “Patience in Presence“. Give ’em a watch!
