Rock bands from New Jersey have a vast musical history to live up to, and ASPIGA is ready for the challenge with their upcoming full length, What Happened To You?.

Following the release of their debut album, Tense, in 2010, ASPIGA sonically evolved from a folk/punk duo into a full–fledged melodic punk band. With the line–up rounded out by Alec McVey on bass/vocals and Raymond Solowij on drums, the band released their Paper + Plastick debut, Every Last Piece, in 2012 and continued to establish their presence with consistent touring and festival appearances.

What Happened To You?, the band's second full length for Paper + Plastick, finds ASPIGA more comfortable in their own skin and embracing their alternative rock influences, while maintaining their punk roots. Their aptitude for crafting heartfelt and dynamic songs, with lyrical themes of family, loss, and self–inquiry, welcome audiences with a sound that is as relatable, as it is unique.
