Coming up this Saturday, May 5th, is Radio 104.5’s first Summer Block Party for the year. Neon Trees are playing, along with Eve 6 and Darry Miller & the Veil. From tours to new albums to big comebacks, each of these bands have had lots of new and exciting things going on this year and are guaranteed to please your ear drums this weekend.
Neon Trees gained quite a lot of recognition from their 2010 single “Animal” which won Top Alternative Song in the 2011 Billboard Music Awards. The band has moved onward and upward since, releasing their second album, Picture Show, on April 17th. “Everybody Talks” was the single released from this most recent album, and it has received much acclaim. Neon Trees is now touring the U.S. The May 5th block party is not only their second tour date, but also your only chance to see them in Pennsylvania!
Eve 6 got started in the mid-nineties with platinum hits “Inside out” and “Leech.” After announcing a hiatus in 2004, the three original members finally came together once again in March 2011. In February of 2012, the band released a long awaited single, “Victoria”, which acted as a sneak peak to the new sound fans would hear on their upcoming album. This album, Speak in Code, was released on April 24th and is being closely followed by a tour. Eve 6 will make three stops in Pennsylvania throughout their tour, the first being at this weekend’s block party.
Coming from Central PA, Darry Miller & the Veil developed a prominent fan base and signed to an independent record label, Ripple Creative Records, in 2009. Their first EP was released in 2010, entitled Green. The band consists of five incredibly talented men and most recently released a three song EP in 2011. In addition to the May 5th block party, Darry Miller & the Veil also have two other Pennsylvania shows coming up in the following months.
Be sure not to miss Saturday’s Summer Block Party, the first of five throughout summer 2012!
