"Album Review"

"Make no mistake about it; We Did This On Purpose is a loud, hook-laden album with enough head shaking energy to power dorm parties well into the morning hours." -

"Recommended Live Show"

"This New York band is an electric kickback to old school rock ‘n’ roll, with heavy, powerful hooks and a fun loving attitude." - amNY

"10 Questions With The Walk Ons"

"Brooklyn's The Walk Ons have been turning out great power pop ala Elvis Costello, Bloc Party and Paul Westerberg for the past few years. They released their new EP We Did this On Purpose today on Drug Front Records. The record has some kick ass pop songs and you should definitely give the stream a listen." - Musformation

"Featured Artist in Classic Rock Magazine"

"The Walk Ons play slinky, downtown stagger-rock somewhere between The Strokes and a knife-fighting gang of well-dressed art thieves. They specialise in big songs, bigger choruses, melt-in-your-mouth melodies, and a palpable sense of Saturday-night electricity." - Classic Rock Magazine

"Radio Play and Commentary"

"Woo hoo! You guys Rock! This band is great."
-Valley Girl, co-host Fame Games Radio
- ABC Radio/Fame Games

"A&R Review"

"Rock, power pop, a little alt. Puts me in the mind of Elvis Costello meets the Knack meets Paul Westerberg/The Replacements."

"The band sounds tight . . . the no frills production compliments the material well." - Taxi

"Featured in Fox News' Gig Guide"

"Hook-riddled rock with just the right amount of garbage - The Walk Ons won't disappoint you." - Fox News / The

"Album Review"

"Any fan of funky distorted guitars and conventional song structures with choruses you can sing along to will love this." -

"Album Review"

"The Walk Ons radiate a confidence that, despite their easy-going rock sensibilities, feels raw and unrestrained. The Walk Ons are without a doubt one of those “fun” bands. " - On the Tune

"Album Review"

"It is hard to single out any tracks on this album because mainly because each of them are individually catchy and contain some sick guitar, drums and vocals which combined are an exciting mix of pure raw energy." - Indie Arto


We Did This On Purpose (EP), released 2010

Awkward Brunch (EP), released 2008



New York City anti-heroes, The Walk Ons, kick out supercharged, “hookriddled rock” that plays on in your head long after your ears stop ringing.

Infusing elements of garage-rock and power-pop bands like Weezer, The Strokes, The Killers and The Clash, The Walk Ons play tube-screaming party rock that’s dirty enough to thrill your girlfriend, but clean enough to show your mom.

The Walk Ons signed to Brooklyn’s Drug Front Records in 2009 while recording their most recent release “We Did This On Purpose.” This 5-song EP offers some of the band’s most richly-textured and experimental tracks to date, including the integration of synthesizers and strings, and intricate backing vocals. Opening track “Forget You” is a KISS-meets-Electric Six dance-rock anthem, sure to get bodies moving. The crunchy, overdriven rocker “Can’t Be Satisfied” is aptly featured on a forthcoming compilation from Classic Rock Magazine.

Over the past couple of years The Walk Ons unleashed their frenetic live show all over the Northeast and Midwest, including a riotous, sold out one-night stand at Mercury Lounge opening for Black Taxi, a glorious daytime gig at the Harvard Square Oktoberfest, and an all-ages free for all at Hartford’s Webster Theater opening for the English Beat. They have shared bills with Earl Greyhound, Drug Rug, Fan Tan, Pow Wow, MiniBoone and The Bamboo Kids. Comfortable on any stage, in front of any crowd, in the words of Fox News/Palestra “The Walk Ons won’t disappoint.”

The Walk Ons’ recordings have graced the airwaves of indie, college and commercial radio, including spins on New York’s number-one rated rock station, Q 104.3. Their songs have drawn comparisons to everything from Elvis Costello to Franz Ferdinand to The Kings of Leon. And they are just fine with that.
