South Jersey/Philadelphia pop-punk quartet Count To Four are set to release their debut full length LP Between Two Cities on April 30th. The album is available for pre-order now via the bands’ Bandcamp page.
Between Two Cities sees Count To Four perfecting their signature sound with ten aggressive, hook-heavy anthems. The album was recorded with Matt Dalton (Craig Owens, For The Fallen Dreams, Chiodos) and includes first single ‘I Hope Not’, which is available to stream HERE
Count To Four was formed in early 2010. Made up of members Mike Hayden, Jay Miller, Pete Adams and Neale DiMento, the band wasted no time in writing and recording, putting out debut EP Know Where You Come From that September, just a matter of months after inception.
Know Where You Come From, along with 2011’s Acoustic EP showcased not only the bands’ highly motivated DIY work ethic, but also their versatility on song writing. It didn’t take long for their tenacious efforts to be noticed, either, being drafted in to support some of pop-punk’s biggest names including The Wonder Years, Man Overboard, We Are the In Crowd and Senses Fail. Further to such success, in December 2012 Count To Four were also handpicked from a contest of around 400 bands to open for All Time Low at a one-off college concert. All Time Low themselves choosing Count To Four as the deserving band.
Count To Four’s dedication to their work can be linked to one particular week during the 2012 summer US Warped Tour, where the entire band spent their time and cause following the tour across North America handing out free demos of their music. The effort proved a huge success with near 7,000 samplers making their way into the hands of potential new fans. It’s this ethic that has helped the band majorly in building their popularity over the past three years, an ongoing project that will no doubt shortly be viewed as a monumental example for all new upstart bands hoping to draw closer attention to their work.
“Pop Punk is all about growing up, and we try to capture all the emotions, positive and negative, that go along with it. I think that’s what makes it all relatable…In the end it’s music, it’s expression. We do this because we love it, and none of us would want to be doing anything else.” – Count To Four
As their following has continuously expanded, so has their tally of endorsements with the band currently holding sponsors from Imperial Cymbals, Drella Apparel and Firewheel Clothing, among others.
Between Two Cities captures the honest intent of Count To Four, combining their individual integrity with a musical landscape made to mirror the velocity and emotion of the stories it withholds.
