Seventh Avenue at Midnight
Interstate's bold melodies and biting lyrics offer the rare combination of classic rock style, Americana grit, and modern pop/rock sense for an eclectic blend that is fresh, relentless, and unmatched. With their debut album, Seventh Avenue at Midnight, released on independent label LytninBoy Records, Interstate offers a symphonic guitar driven album that is played as if their lives depended on it. The searing guitar lines and soulful belts of JW Nunes, the lushful bass tones of Berle Dixon, the masterful thunderings from Dan Dixon, and the sweet harmonies of Scott Thomas, create a sound that draws on their clear influences of Tom Petty, Matchbox 20, and Elvis Costello, but delivers something for everyone. And whether exploring the restless longing of 'Playing the Fool', the poisoned protest of 'Stand', the self interrogation of 'Hole in My Faith' or the neon-lit epic of 'Madtown', the lyrics speak - often examining and introspective, sometimes haunting and brutally honest, but always - true.
