the ashes of Four Minute Mile, THE HOUSE LIGHTS
are shining bright like the phoenix! With the release of the new full-length
CD This Town is Murder on Fake Chapter Records
in August of 2004, the band is poised to jump from regional to inter-national
phenomenon! Somewhere between the lasting melodies, airtight rhythm, and syncopated
guitars is a smart indie pop sound as unique as it is instantly familiar.
Their pride in craftsmanship awarded THLs a WZZO Backyard Band Competition victory, a first runner up nod in Pulse Weekly's Best Original Band Poll, and the privilege of being a twice-selected performer at the annual Millennium Music Conference and Dewey Beach Pop Festival. THLs have also been featured in numerous newspaper and website articles as well as live television and radio performances. THLs relentlessly take it to the streets with weekly performances in New York City, Philadelphia, and throughout the entire Mid-Atlantic region. The band has also generated significant interest and buzz during their recent tour of Japan.
The group's line-up is the combustible combination of kindred creative spirits. Kyle Campbell contributes thoughtful lyrics, honest vocals, and steady rhythm guitar, while John Timko, the resident heartthrob, shreds on guitar and provides picturesque backing vocals. Bassist Leon Wasielewski flails, jumps and thrashes unlike any bass player alive and Travis Turner holds it all together with immensely creative, trigger precision drumming.
With an ever-growing fan base pledging their allegiance to THLs, there is no doubt that world indie pop domination is imminent. Be sure to pick up your own copy of the new CD This Town is Murder today!
