The Downtown Fiction (TDF) hailing from Fairfax, VA, will release its new Best I Never Had – EP, March 23 on Photo Finish Records (3OH!3, Envy on the Coast, Anthony Green).
The EP, recorded with acclaimed producer Stacy Jones, is now available for pre-order at: http://tinyurl.com/TDFpreorder.
In addition to being sold separately as a digital or physical EP ($5 each), the album can be purchased as a special $8 bundle which will include both the digital EP & physical EP, a TDF penguin bracelet, a signed TDF poster, and TDF stickers.
TDF has quickly built a loyal fan base and quite the buzz. Citing influences ranging from Green Day to The Rolling Stones, the pop-rock trio has a sound comparable to the likes of Jimmy Eat World, Blink 182, and The All-American Rejects.
Formed in the summer of 2008 by Cameron Leahy (vocals/guitar) and Eric Jones (drums), the two posted three demos on their MySpace and were blown away by the response. Soon after, they recruited friend David Pavluk on bass and backing vocals to round out the trio.
Last year the group released its self-titled debut EP on iTunes to rave reviews. Instantly peaking at #22 on the overall iTunes charts, it was made aware that TDF was something special. Thanks to their catchy pop melodies, clever lyrics, and witty YouTube videos, the band quickly moved into the Top 25 unsigned artists chart on Myspace.com with nearly 2.5 million plays on MySpace all in a year’s time. The young trio found additional success on TV, having songs featured in E!’s Keeping Up with the Kardashians, MTV’s The Hills, The Real World, and the final song of the season finale of Styl’d.
The Downtown Fiction will be performing at SXSW in Austin, TX next month, after which they will head out on the Class of 2010 Tour with Stephen Jerzak and Stereo Skyline, followed by a run on the Vans Warped Tour (see dates below.)
Three tracks off of the upcoming EP can be streamed now at www.myspace.com/thedowntownfiction.
