Reckless Serenade are touring with Victory Records’ The Bunny The Bear next month. They will play in Trenton, NJ on June 5th at The Backstage at Championship and circle back around for a hometown house party at the Guerrilla Music Festival on June 27th. The festival is the third annual event, each booked by Reckless Serenade guitarist Mark Neidhardt.
Coined after an Arctic Monkeys track of the same name, the high school friends in Reckless Serenade formed the band in 2012 in Mahopac, NY, instantly connecting after their musicality matched their ambitions. Their strong work ethic lead to a large local following while their brash playing and smooth songwriting recalls the likes of Coheed & Cambria and My Chemical Romance, earning praise from alternative listeners wherever they go.
Their latest two songs, “Autumn Eyes” and “Take Me Back to the Summer”, were met with strong fan success and earned comparisons to Thriving Ivory and The Rocket Summer by AbsolutePunk. Their debut full-length, Chasing Lights, came out in August 2013, reaching the Top 30 at College Radio. Their earlier six song self-titled EP (Fervor Records) has been featured on Fox Sports, and single “Two Years Too Late” won mtvU’s The Freshmen in May 2014, proving the band’s music has inescapable staying power.
