This week’s episode is sponsored by Mint 400 Records.

Albany NY based indie-rock band E.R.I.E. releases their sophomore album Suburban Mayhem on April 7th via Mint 400 Records. Citing diverse influences such as Blink 182, Tom Petty, and The Menzingers; E.R.I.E. has traded in the internalized existential struggle of debut Don’t Wanna Live, Don’t Wanna Die, to take on the myriad forces that permeate a modern existence. Single “Bad Man’s World” presents a tongue-in-cheek evaluation of fitting into a stereotypical idea of “manhood,” without turning into chauvinistic asshole.

In addition to their album release show in Albany on April 7th, E.R.I.E. has upcoming shows in Metro NY, Connecticut, Philadelphia, and more! For more information, visit their website, abandcallederie.com
