Long Island based four-piece rock band known as NGHBRS (pronounced Neighbors) has released their highly anticipated debut EP, Hellomind.
“We’ve worked so hard to build this band from the ground up and it feels so good to release an EP that we’re 100% proud of,” said drummer Jordan Schneider. “We’re going to do everything in our power to make sure it doesn’t go unheard.”
In May 2010, the indie band entered the studio with renowned producer Bryan Russell (Envy On The Coast, Straylight Run, The Narrative) and Dan Gluszak (Envy on the Coast) to record their first EP, Hellomind. The EP is a tasteful mix of the band’s raw energy, catchy hooks, and melodic instrumentation.
Formed in the summer of 2009, NGHBRS, made it their mission to create the most unique musical project they possibly could. After months of writing and collaborating, Ian Kenny (vocals/keys), Jordan Schneider (drums), Tommy Fleischmann (guitar), and Eric Vivelo (bass), were confident in their newfound sound.
By April 2010, their first single, “Bodies,” was released, and within weeks, chosen for the soundtrack of “National Lacrosse League 2010,” the first ever Lacrosse video game for XBOX. The subsequent buzz, generated not only by the release of their first single, but also the band’s unparalleled live performance, helped expand their fan base across Long Island.
With the release of Hellomind, the band has since shared the stage with bands like Envy on The Coast, The Sleeping, Matt and Kim, and Cassino. They have also been featured in the New York Times and have numerous blogs buzzing about their unique sound. To find out more on NGHBRS and where they’ll be playing next, please go to www.nghbrs.com.
