The Everymen

Hometown: Tuckerton, NJ (USA)


Since forming in 2009, New Jersey’s The Everymen have quickly built a rock solid resume thanks to their tireless average of over 100 shows a year, and a reputation as one of the hardest working and most exciting live bands around.

Standing nine members strong, The Everymen are reminiscent of The E Street Band in stature, Rocket From The Crypt in searing energy, Meat Loaf in production and The Replacements in boozy, backroom party vibes.

As a follow-up to their first full length release New Jersey Harcore, the band willl release their second full length album and sixth release overall titled Givin’ Up On Free Jazz on May 20 via the Ernest Jenning Record Co.

However, where New Jersey Hardcore was the work of one man flanked by occasional co-conspirators, Free Jazz is the fully formed execution of a band just hitting its stride.

From modern takes on girl group send ups (“Fingers Crossed”) to soaring, Springsteen-esque walls of sound (“A Girl Named Lou Pt. 2”), full throttle odes to eternal love (“Spain”) and hushed, piano bar intimacy (“Izzy”), and four on the floor, windows down stompers (“Another Thing To Lose”) Givin’ Up On Free Jazz is an album as varied as it is focused all while sounding singularly Everymen.

Givin’ Up On Free Jazz was produced by Everymen mastermind Mike V with Tom Unish manning the boards. It was mixed by the legendary John Angello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr, Kurt Vile) and mastered by Paul Gold (LCD Soundsystem, Animal Collective, Fucked Up).

And because they never stop longer than the time it takes to crush a beer can, The Everymen planning a seven-week US tour kicking off in June followed by month long runs in September and November.
