Austin-based indie rockers Midcentury are thrilled to announce the upcoming release of their debut album “Modern Nostalgia” on Saturday, Feb. 17, 2018. Midcentury is comprised of Bruce Allen Smith Jr. on lead vocals and guitar, Eric Harrison on the bass and vocals, Paul Murray on guitar, keys and vocals, Evan “Butch” Wade on the drums and Alex Chod contributing keys/synths and vocals. There will be an official album release party on Saturday, Feb. 17, 2018 at Swan Dive, located at 615 Red River St., Austin, Texas 78701. More info and tickets for the album release show can be found at www.midcenturyband.com.

Midcentury's first single, "Warrior," was premiered by KUTX as Song of the Day on Thursday, Nov. 2, and you can listen to it by clicking here.

Over the past two years, Midcentury has been reworking and refining their debut project, honing in on their production abilities, and entertaining new techniques and methods while recording. The album is a unique, modern reinterpretation of ‘80s pop, ‘90s alternative and early 2000s indie post rock. And at the same time, it radiates with rhythmic funk and tinges of hip hop.

When asked about the title of the album, Midcentury says, “The commodification of nostalgia is used to manipulate society into thinking that things will never be as good as they were. It is the veil over our eyes that separates us from the time and place that we live, thus stripping us of the power that we inherently have to change the circumstances that shape the world.”

THE “MODERN NOSTALGIA” TRACKLIST IS AS FOLLOWS:
Fallen
Warrior
Nah, Ima Stay Here
World’s Apart
Invoke
Foul Play
Push It Around
Revolve
Chariots
Super Classic
