'We aren't trying to reinvent the wheel. We are just playing the music we love the best we possibly can,' states Interns bassist Tony Hartman. Since their inception in February of 1999, The Interns have matured and evolved into one of Cleveland, Ohio's prominent rock groups, logging tens of thousands of touring miles, performing for two consecutive years on the Vans Warped Tour and establishing a very reputable local and regional fan base. That is quite a list of accomplishments for a group of twenty-somethings hailing from a town with one traffic light. The self-titled CD EP The Interns successfully combines loud rock with true pop sensibilities. Recommended for fans of Jimmy Eat World, The Get Up Kids and The Replacements, the disc is power pop perfection. The Interns musical progression can be credited to their active tour schedule. Having played 100 plus dates per year for the past two years, The Interns have been fortunate to share the stage with the likes of Taking Back Sunday, The Ataris, Homegrown, The Lawrence Arms and Brand New. At just under 20 minutes running time, The Interns debut offering is a great introduction to a band that is sure to make some noise in the indie music world. Originally self-released in June 2004 and now re-released by Nice Guy Records.
