Episode 087: Midtown w/ Rob Hitt

Midtown was an American pop-punk band from New Brunswick, New Jersey. Midtown was formed in November 1998 by three Rutgers University students but soon became a quartet. The group released three full-length studio albums and three extended plays before disbanding in 2005.

You can hear a better intro about the band in Heath’s interview.

I got Rob Hitt on the Skype and this is what we talk about:
  • Constantly playing a song on repeat
  • The bands that influenced Midtown
  • Writing really high notes in Lanemeyer
  • His first band which wasn’t Professor Plum
  • Meeting Josh from Humble Beginnings
  • How Midtown formed
  • Gabe’s usage of big words in songs
  • Buying CDs with friends and dubbing them for each other
  • Jay Pinball
  • New Found Glory
  • Their first album being amazing
  • Vinnie from I am the avalanche singing background on a Midtown song
  • Fenix TX and Drive-Thru Records
  • Almost getting fired from the band
  • Being roommates with Max Bemis
  • And a ton more
