Formed in 2008, Gabriel The Marine is a violin-infused indie rock/pop quintet from Long Island, NY with a sound all their own. After two critically acclaimed self-released EPs, the band will release a new EP this Fall on Sun Pedal followed by their debut full length studio album in 2013. They are currently at work on music with accomplished producer Jim Wirt (Fiona Apple, Jack’s Mannequin, Incubus). The new studio album will be supported by extensive touring that will stretch well into 2013. Gabriel The Marine has played the Bamboozle festival twice and have toured with such artists and bands as John Nolan, Taking Back Sunday, Bayside, Jacks Mannequin, Mae, Anberlin, and the Dear Hunter.
The group has received high praise from Spin Magazineas a band to watch adding “this quintet stands out. They eschew bratty pop-punk and cheesy emo-pop for a violin-laced sound that wraps around a conceptual, continuous narrative of a character called Gabriel. Think the Decemberists meet Jimmy Eat World.” AbsolutePunkraved “Post-emo orchestral rock that’s rife with tenderness, passion and grit. Phenomenal. Gabriel The Marine is most assuredly a band to watch out for in the years to come.”
Gabriel The Marine is Michael Desmond on Vocals/Guitar, Dylan Ebrahimian on Violin/Piano/Vocals, Dominick D’Agostino on Guitar, Thomas Costa on Bass and Thomas Davis on Drums. The band is managed by Strong Management.
