Featuring: TURNOVER, Turnstile, Sandy Alex G, Culture Abuse, Remember Sports, Reptaliens
Turnover headlines the annual Spring Fling show at The Agora! Formed in 2009, the Virginia Beach indie outfit initially emerged as an emo-pop act in the vein of bands like the Get Up Kids and Texas Is the Reason before transitioning into a more contemplative dream pop style. jumped onto the scene in 2011 with a self-titled EP. A split single with Citizen followed the next year before the band would make its full-length debut in early 2013 with ‘Magnolia’ on Run for Cover Records. Turnover’s sophomore release, 2015’s ‘Peripheral Vision,’ represented a shift in style toward more melodic, dreamy indie rock. This tonal change was continued on their third LP, 2017’s ‘Good Nature,’ which, like its predecessor, was produced by Will Yip.
One of the biggest draws on the bill, Turnstile are set to perform are on the road in support of their new record, ‘Time & Space’ (02.23.18; Roadrunner). The album was met with critical acclaim by contemporary music critics upon release. The album debuted at number one on the US Billboard Heatseekers chart and number fifteen on the Top Hard Rock Albums chart.
Turnstile formed in 2010, based out of Baltimore’s emerging hardcore scene. They released their debut EP, titled ‘Pressure to Succeed,’ in 2011, and their second EP, titled ‘Step 2 Rhythm,’ in 2013, both via Reaper Records. On January 13, 2015, Turnstile released their debut full-length album ‘Nonstop Feeling,’ also via Reaper Records. Supporting the release of the album, Turnstile went on both an East Coast and a West Coast tour with Superheaven and also supported New Found Glory on their spring 2015 tour.
As lovers of sci-fi, theatrics, rituals and the absurd, Reptaliens’ live shows are engaging productions that leave audience members in awe of not only their showmanship but incredible songwriting abilities. Of course, this is a given since they’ve toured with bands like Of Montreal, STRFKR and Cults.
Reptaliens have been up to a lot of different things since we announced their 2nd LP, ‘VALIS’. They have shared two singles/videos: “Shuggie II” and “Ventian Blinds,” played SXSW and Treefort, were included in NPR’s New Music Friday playlist, and have received praise from outlets like Austin Town Hall, Abduction Radiation and Northern Transmissions. VALIS is due on April 26th; it’s an introspective response to the outward-looking analysis of their first LP ‘FM-2030.’
