Why Aren’t You Listening To: Modern Suits

There have been many Philly based bands that have been releasing some fantastic music this year. One of those many bands that have recently released new music is Modern suits. Comprised of Keith Gibbons on lead vocals and guitar, Adam Jessamine on lead guitar, Mikal Smith on bass, and Dean Hartley on drums, the band’s sound is huge and soothing, while still giving loud instrumentals. Often compared to the likes of Manchester Orchestra and Brand New, the band definitely has caught some interest. I Am Entertainment Magazine stated that “It’s tough for unsigned bands to stand out in today’s over-saturated music industry, but when you release a project that has the same quality as chart topping bands then it’s only a matter of time before you break out. For the Suits, that time is coming soon if they go after it.”

Kung Fu Necktie is hosting Modern Suits’ EP Release show this Friday featuring the band as well as The Moxy, Those Mockingbirds, and Fred Mascherino of Taking Back Sunday, who also produced Every Light, their newest EP. Tickets can be purchased here if you want to see this much anticipated lineup. Here’s a bit of a preview of what’ll be experienced on Friday:
