Feeling a bit camera shy


The first track from the Exit 8 latest demo ‘Penny Waits’ starts off with a driving bass line followed by layered guitars and hard-hitting drums. The sound swells and eventually fades back to an open verse where an empathetic vocal tells a sad story about a girl who long ago stopped believing in herself. By the time the crunch-filled chorus guitars enter the scene our character ‘Penny Waits’ is contemplating ending it all. With only a glimmer of hope that she will find the strength to start believing, Penny Waits not only becomes our heroine but a damn good song as well.

Featured on XM SATELLiTE RADiO's Radar Report as one of the top 12 up and coming bands in the U.S., on 92.9 DaveFM's New Music Seminar show and on Radio Crystal Blue's New Music Sampler is a solid sign that Exit 8 has arrived. Here's what they are saying:

"The swirling guitars and melodies of Exit 8 are ear grabbing from the first licks of PENNY WAITS. This band gets it...the complete package." - Barnes, 92.9 DAVE-FM, Atlanta, GA

"Solid commercial pop/rock tune. Good vocal and band performance, good modern mix and production. Catchy chorus hook. Overall very tight." - Taxi

"I really like Exit 8. I feel that listeners will wake up hearing it. Refreshing mesh of Beatlesque harmonies infused with the stuff the Who were doing, and give it actually a New Wave sound. You know, like being in a red-shift time warp and making these sounds coalesce perfectly." - Dan Herman/Radio Crystal Blue
