Elsewhere - Alternative Progressive New Wave Punk Power Pop Live Act in Boston

Elsewhere Short Info

Elsewhere, a progressive-punk/alt/new wave/power-pop trio from Boston is the product of a rare musical mutation that combines the energy and raw angst of punk with the ambition and creativity of progressive rock. Recently, the band released the future EP of the decade (we’re kidding) entitled “1981” backed by the singles “1981” and “Before The Stars Align”. A new EP is also being released in early 2018. World domination will commence imminently…

The trio consists of guitarist/vocalist Michael Aroian, bassist Kevin Swaluk and drummer Adam Automatic-a trio of atypical rockers with corporate day jobs who bring the duality of their existence to the stage with their high-energy live performances. This contradiction between image and sound pulls the listener into a state of emotional release through thought-provoking music. The truly progressive part of Elsewhere’s music is that it also has a pop sensibility that people can appreciate and relate to on an entirely different level.

Influenced by a wide array of bands such as Rush, the Police, Duran Duran, and the Sex Pistols, and described as a more guitar driven version of The Killers (and a fatter version of 30 Seconds To Mars), Elsewhere has developed a smooth, electric and groove-oriented sound that transcends the wavering music trends of the day.

The new EP will prove to be a much-anticipated follow-up to the well received EP 1981. Buzz has already built around the band's resurrection and release of the lost Police single "Don't You Believe Me Baby", which was a discarded demo by Sting during the Ghost In The Machine recording sessions. A recent lyric video on YouTube (see link) has already attracted over 170,000 views and attention from major national media (see Boston Herald story) and Police fan sites.

Through airplay on national radio shows, appearances on film (“Mr. Sadman”) and TV (“Live Through This”), and performances throughout the Northeast, Elsewhere is continuing to attract interest from radio, club audiences, major media, magazines, music supervisors and record labels. Most importantly, unlike bands that have come before and after them, they have not stopped and continue to pursue ways to create and disseminate their music to the masses despite the broken model that is today’s music industry…
