"These past couple months have been a blur. In the time between wrapping up a radio promotional tour in Asia, playing to near sold out crowds at Columbia University, touring though New York and wrapping up tracking their second studio album, the boys are enjoying the climb." - Chris Emond

‘takethestage’ is an indie rock band from Astoria, New York. The band started in 2012, with brothers, Hans, on guitar and vocals and Shanne on drums, covering punk songs in the basement of their home. In 2013, the brothers recruited their cousin Kiel, on bass guitar and in early 2018, recruited longtime friend, Brandon on lead guitar.The band continued as a three piece and began writing and performing original music, written by Hans. Through the use of basic recording software, and a laptop purchased by the father of the brothers, Hans was able to record the band’s first EP. The ‘Waiting’ EP (December 2015) was four tracks composed and written by Hans, which included the band’s carrier single ,“Waiting”. The EP had an 80’s pop vibe, which differed from the band’s original roots as a punk cover band. The band’s most recent release, the ‘Love’ EP (May 2016), was a 5 track EP, that had an indie rock vibe.Knowing the full potential of the songs haven’t been met yet, the band went to Threshold Recording Studios in Hell’s Kitchen and worked with ‘The Strokes’ producer James Walsh to record a single. The single, entitled “Sell”, is the final track in the band's debut album. In early 2018, the band began working with Richard Fabrizio from Frequency Studios in White Plains, New York to record their debut album, “Blue.”. The 10 track album is set to release on June 22nd, 2018. The band traveled to the Philippines in the Summer of 2018, landing a distribution deal with MCA Music Inc. and began touring with different bands until their departure back to the US in August. The band has been traveling across the US playing shows while working on new material for their 2nd Album.
