Finish Ticket will herald the “Ones To Watch Tour” with the new single, “Color,” featured on the Bay Area-based band’s acclaimed new EP, “WHEN NIGHT BECOMES DAY.” Set to impact Modern Rock radio outlets nationwide in January 2016, the track is accompanied by a vivid companion video, premiering today exclusively via Alternative Press (http://www. /features/entry/finish_ticket_video_premiere_tour_announcement_exclusive).
Recorded and produced in the San Francisco Bay Area and mixed by multiple GRAMMY® Award nominee Mark Needham (The Killers, Imagine Dragons), “WHEN NIGHT BECOMES DAY” premiered last month via Baeble, noting, “With its arena ready hooks and wall of sound guitars…Finish Ticket represent the best of what contemporary pop-rock can be.” A limited physical version of the EP will be available exclusively at live shows and through the band’s website.
Just off a sold-out two month nationwide run supporting Fueled By Ramen recording group twenty one pilots on their “Blurryface Tour,” Finish Ticket has spent much of the past year on the road highlighted by headline dates, festivals & college performances. The band will celebrate their incredible summer with a much anticipated homecoming show, set for Thursday, November 5th at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall.
Hailed by Paste as “The Best of What’s Next,” Finish Ticket has earned accolades and a loyal fan following for their spirited brand of pop, rock, and contemporary indie. Founded by fraternal twins Brendan and Michael Hoye alongside childhood friend AlexDiDonato, the Bay Area-based band truly came together with the addition of a second set of brothers, Gabe and Nick Stein. Finish Ticket have already cultivated a rabid fanbase in the Bay Area by playing with the likes of Ed Sheeran and headlining venues such as at The Fillmore. Produced by Rilo Kiley’s Pierre de Reeder (Vampire Weekend, She & Him, Ben Gibbard), their debut album, “TEARS YOU APART,” was released independently in 2013 and caught the ear of Elektra who re-released the album in 2014.

Vinyl Theatre have been hailed as one of modern rock’s most compelling new bands, a fact instantly affirmed by 2014’s Fueled By Ramen debut album, “ELECTROGRAM.” Idolator applauded the collection as praised as “excellent” while noting how the Milwaukee, WI-based band is “breathing new life into…80’s-inspired synth rock.”
“Breaking Up My Bones” the kinetic first single from “ELECTROGRAM,” also proved a favorite, ascending to #2 on Sirius XM Alt Nation’s influential “alt 18” countdown. The “Breaking Up My Bones” companion video clip is streaming now via the band’s official YouTube channel, www. /user/VinylTheatreTV.
Named as one of Alternative Press’ “100 Bands You Need To Know,” Vinyl Theatre is currently on the road supporting Against the Current, with dates running through November. The trek follows a non-stop year of travel highlighted by their first ever headline tour, dates supporting the likes of twenty one pilots, The Mowgli’s, Magic Man, Smallpools, Fall Out Boy and MKTO.
Vinyl Theatre came together in 2012 and immediately made waves with their infectious cross-pollination of indie, electro, and pop, earning a fast-growing national following for their forward-thinking synth-based sound. The band earned high praise for such independent releases as 2014’s five-track “CHROMATIC” EP, as well as for electrifying live sets as both headliners and as support to such like-minded acts as Royal Teeth, Parade of Lights, Five Knives, and the aforementioned twenty one pilots.
