Wasteland Hop will be making their ‘Symbiotic Clock EP’ available to the public for the first time with a pair of big events on the front range.
The CD release weekend kicks off at Hodi’s Halfnote in Fort Collins on Friday, January 23. Then on Saturday 1/24 the band takes the stage at Denver’s Larimer Lounge for the first time. Wasteland Hop will be joined for both shows by the prominent Denver hip-hop act Wheelchair Sports Camp.
CD Release Parties
‘Symbiotic Clock’ represents a new high-water mark of recording for Wasteland Hop. They got to record in Fort Collins’ legendary Blasting Room studios (Rise Against, Black Flag). These recording sessions were made possible by Spokesbuzz. Additional recording took place at The Spot studios in Denver (Macy Gray, Kenny Loggins Band, System of a Down).
The glacial artwork of ‘Symbiotic Clock’ is entirely original. A separate painting was created for each of the six songs on the EP. The artist behind the work is CSU graduate Taylor Gallegos, who lives in San Diego, CA but has joined Wasteland Hop as a live painter on three prior Alaska tours.
Wasteland Hop is available for interview for January features in your publication. An advance press copy of Wasteland Hop’s ‘Symbiotic Clock’ is available to you upon request.
About Wasteland Hop
Wasteland Hop’s unique music is a hybrid of hip hop, funk, and rock’n'roll. MC Mickey Kenny’s lyrical style owes more to slam poetry than to anything climbing today’s the hip hop charts. Lead singer Steph Jay’s soulful wail would sound at home on a 70′s Motown record.
Wasteland Hop’s lineup is rounded out with Nick Scheidies (guitar), Brian Weikel (bass), Adam Fallik (drums), and Liz Gaylor (violin).
The premier entertainment magazine in Northern Colorado Scene Magazine ran a cover story in January 2014 calling Wasteland Hop the, “leading talent in The Fort.” Greta Cornett of The Bohemian Foundation sees the band as one on the cusp, saying Wasteland Hop “are poised to take that next big leap.”
