About the ArtistRefreshing. Retro-cool. Original, yet classic. With one mod-style boot planted in classic British rock and another boot planted firmly in today's pop universe, Throwback Suburbia has built an impressive resume of accomplishments in just three short years.
The band has released two EP's and launched a national radio campaign, with their single "Circles" helping them to become the most played unsigned artist on several FM radio stations across the country and garnering regular rotation on Rodney Bingenheimer's (Rodney on the ROQ) show on KROQ in L.A. They won the Garage Band/Budweiser True Music contest, providing them with distribution to thousands of Live 365 radio stations. Every single track they have submitted at Garageband.com has been in the Top 10 (four of them simultaneously), while their single "All About Me" ascended to the #1 spot.
While striking up artist endorsements with Eastwood Guitars, DiPinto Guitars, D'Addario, Pearl, Evans, In Tune Guitar Picks, Planet Waves, Slither Guitar Straps, Marc Astburys Beatwear and RockStar Energy Drink, and sharing the stage with the likes of Rooney, The 88, Veruca Salt, Gin Blossoms, the Tender Box, Rose Hill Drive, Voxtrot, Cherry Poppin Daddies and Bleu, Throwback Suburbia has established a very loyal fan base and is playing to packed houses wherever they land.
Their 2007 and 2008 tours took them down the west coast of the United States with club dates, interviews and record store appearances in Seattle, Portland, Eugene, Lake Tahoe, Chico, Sacramento, San Francisco, Los Angeles (for the International Pop Overthrow Festival), Reno, Las Vegas and Anaheim where the band performed at the 2008 NAMM show and recorded a video segment for the youth lifestyle website Vimby.com.
After making numerous television appearances in the last year (including features on Portland's PDXposed, BetterTV and FOX49 Entertainment Zone), PDXposed contracted the band to provide the theme music for their Saturday night show on NBC. They were also named the Eastwood Guitars Big Pick winner for 2008, which recognizes their favorite new act.
Throwback Suburbia is currently in the finishing stages of recording and mixing their first full-length album. Engineered by Jeff Stuart Saltzman (Death Cab for Cutie, The Shins) and mixed by Grammy Award winning producer Jack Douglas (John Lennon, Cheap Trick, Aerosmith, The Who), Mark Plati (David Bowie, The Cure), Marc Desisto (U2, Sheryl Crow) and Chris Manning (Jellyfish, Thriving Ivory), the yet to be titled 13-song album is already drawing early comparisons to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Jellyfish, Cheap Trick, The 88 and Badfinger.
The ever-increasing fan support for Throwback Suburbia points to the powerful live performances they repeatedly demonstrate. That alone is a remarkable discovery in the modern day musical workings that have produced a surplus of unremarkable bands. Yet each time they play, Mike, Jimi, Paul, and Eric exude the blissful confidence that can only come from doing something you love exceedingly well.
If you should find yourself having trouble locating a pulse in today’s music, Throwback Suburbia is the proof of life in powerpop.
