J-14 is scouting out the hottest bands around... and this week's pick is Fourth Quarter Comeback.
Here are four things you need to know about Fourth Quarter Comeback whose new EP 'The Only Way We Know' is out now!
1. Virgina's pop-punk Fourth Quarter Comeback consists of vocal and guitarist Andy Garcia, bassist Benjamin Cobb, guitar and vocalist Casey Johnson, and drummer Matt DuRousseau. "We all grew up loving music, playing music, and wanting to be in a band. We all have similar tastes in music and we all love creating songs," Andy tells J-14. "The four of us have been good friends for years."
2. The group came up with a sport referenced name regardless of the fact that sports are not their thing. "We are all really, really bad at sports, some more than others...Matt. So we picked a name that reminded us that this band, and the music we write and perform, is our last shot at victory in life," Andy tells J-14. "It's like when you make it all the way down the field to the end zone and make a home run."
3. Fourth Quarter Comeback just released their new EP 'The Only Way We Know' which is all about finding yourself. "We wrote the songs on the new EP from different times in the past year," Andy tells J-14. "Each track on the album ties into discovering new things about life and about living it the only way we know... being in love, wanting new love, escaping the bad times, and finding the reasons to live for the good times."
4. "Back to Sleep" is the lead track off their new EP. "When we wrote 'Back to Sleep', we had an idea of a love that existed only in someone's dreams. They would go through life, almost as a robot, doing the same things day in and day out, only to feel alive and feel self worth and love in their dreams," he explains. "The song definitely did not start out this way, but that's the part of the writing process that we truly love...creating something unique from nothing."
