"Last Night" - 2013 Recorded/Mixed by Paul Leavitt of Valencia Studios in Baltimore, MD



Described as "one of the rising stars in 2013" (The D.O.N Blog), For The Year consistently injects their music with creativity and passion. Founded in September, 2012, when guitarists Steve Van Geyte and Luke Nagel joined together with singer/bass player Jake Milette and drummer Ben Trudeau, For The Year quickly made their way into the Boston music scene, playing at all the major venues in New En...gland. Musically, the band combines the upbeat vibes of pop punk with more edgy influences stemming from different alternative genres, such as post-hardcore. Static Magazine author Rose Brady describes For The Year as a "passionate, hardworking pop punk band in the local Boston music scene", claiming that "their energy and enthusiasm while on stage is what sets this band apart from the rest".

Since coming together, the band has released a five song EP titled "Last Night" which acquired many positive reviews from different blogs and magazines such as "Pop Vulture Magazine", and the "Hit Or Miss Blog". "(Last Night) The 5 song-long EP brings a punch of upbeat energy and that classic pop-punk sound" says Hit Or Miss author Paige Kochanski, "It fits into the same shelf as bands like Yellowcard and Man Overboard. Being the first debut, For The Year is already musically and especially vocally, well ahead of their band's years." The internet based Pop Punk World writes, "Youd expect (Last Night) to be a sophomore album, rather than first attempt. Its catchy, captivating and more than impressive". On top of all of this, the band's debut EP has been played on radio stations such as Boston's 92.5 The River, WBMT 88.3FM, and BSC Online Radio. Aside from the EP, the band has released two live studio session videos and a music video for their single, "Distance", all bringing in tens of thousands of hits on YouTube.

As a collective the band has received numerous awards such as "Band of the Week" from The Siren Agency, first place in the 2013 GIV Battle of the Bands, and the #1 Local Alternative Rank on ReverbNation. Currently, the band is working on writing and recording a new album set to be released Summer of 2014!
