Life After Liftoff
Life After Liftoff
There are other unique connections: Weiss and Sigritz had attended the same high school in Ohio, Sigritz and Malloy worked at Guitar Center and coincidentally, Malloy and Chatterton had been playing in bands together for years. It wasn’t easy at first emerging with a punk-influenced sound in a town that was more into other forms of alternative rock, but over the past few years leading to the release of their EP, they’ve been making a powerful impression. To help build a buzz, Weiss let members of a handful of prominent bands check out some of Life After Liftoff’s strong early demos, and the band now counts among its biggest fans and supporters. Supporters include: Tom Delonge of Blink-182 and Angels & Airwaves, Jordan Pundik and Chad Gilbert of New Found Glory, Paramore lead vocalist Hayley Williams, and Jack Barakat and Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low.
They’ve also won the heart of Nick Thompson, front-man of Ohio based fellow pop/punk band Hit the Lights. “We all love recording and writing,” said Weiss, “but the real energy happens when we’re out there performing, giving people the opportunity to hear our music, creating catchy songs, blending a punk foundation with pop sensibilities are just the beginning of what we’re trying to convey. Life After Liftoff started with the idea that if you look around the world and you are in a bad place yourself, you have the power to change your own circumstances as well as the world around you. Having the opportunity to get that message out there is a humbling thing for all of us.
Our hope is that people walk away from our shows inspired and feel there is hope to make changes for the better in the world.” Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
