Moving Brooklyn as it is today, was formed in 2012. Having collaborated previously on a number of musical projects, Kevin Tiernan (vocals), Kris Kilgore (guitar), Paul LaBosky (guitar), Antonio Mastroianni (drums) & Bill Laudenslager (bass) came together after a whimsical spark of frustration-turned-inspiration. Singer Kevin Tiernan tweeted a simple message one night; ‘Moving to Brooklyn’. His intentions, whilst not to be taken literally, sparked an inspiration amongst the five friends to start a new chapter in their lives and Moving Brooklyn was born.
Buoyed by the success of LaBosky & Laudenslager’s previous band, Shut Up And Deal, Moving Brooklyn immediately found a chemistry, displaying a guitar-led rock sound with rich undertones and energetic breakdowns. Citing influence from the likes of Northlane, Taking Back Sunday and Spitalfield, Intervals sees Moving Brooklyn mould an original and accomplished take on the familiar alternative/pop-punk sound.
The band’s inaugural show came by way of the 2012 Vans Warped Tour Battle of the Bands which they duly won, securing a slot on the Connecticut date of the tour. A spot on the prestigious tour began turning heads in the Connecticut scene and they quickly secured a number of notable support slots, sharing the stage with the likes of Patent Pending, On My Honor and Move Out West.
Heading into the studio in 2013 to record EP Intervals, the band tell a story of love, loss and observe the art of growing up with their debut release. Hitting the ground running in 2014, Moving Brooklyn are sure to be a must-see band for fans of the genre and beyond.
