“Like X if they were from Jersey.”“They’re Jersey Skynyrd!”“Half Springsteen, half Stooges.”“A Jersey Shore Jay Reatard.”
Those are all things folks have said to describe The Everymen; a seven piece rock and roll band from the Jersey Shore who eschew gimmick and kitsch for straight ahead rock and roll. They like their guitars loud and they love when people get the fuck up and dance.
The Everymen are released their debut full length: New Jersey Hardcore on Killing Horse Records way back in 2012. When founder and front man Mike V. talks about the record it’s easy to see just how much NJHC means to the band. “New Jersey Hardcore was the little record that could, in our eyes. We’d planned to record the album in a few different sessions, but on the very first night a flood trapped us in the studio, leading us to record the whole album in one night. One day into mixing with John Agnello, my mother died leaving us to mix via texts, phone calls and emails while treading around a very broken heart. We’re eternally grateful for John. We ran out of money while we were making it time and time again. The rental car broke down on the highway coming back from the mastering session. So many obstacles just popped up between us and the finish line. But the record kept us powering through and believing in a little bit of rock and roll.”
New Jersey Hardcore , which was recorded with Mike Moebius at Hoboken, NJ’s Moonlight Mile Studios, mixed with John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr, Kurt Vile) at Headgear Studios in Brooklyn and mastered with Alan Douches at NY’s West West Side Music (Mastadon, Fleetwood Mac, My Morning Jacket) was Killing Horse Records’ 14th release to date.
