Many bands live beyond the shadows of the Prudential Center and Fenway Park in towns surrounding “The Bean.” Lowell, MA is the home for pop-punk band Beneath The Sheets, but they have made their fan-base home in Boston. They have worked so hard to make their name known in the city and they are proving to be successful.
Beneath the Sheets is made up of Evan Gillis on vocals, Albie Landry and Myke Valley on guitars, Jeff Ferro on bass and Austin Bryant on drums.
Since they’ve been around for a few years, they put out two releases. Rise and Shine EP was released in May, 2008 and their latest album, Go Easy, It’s My First…”, was released this past September. They celebrated this release with a sold-out record-release party at the Middle East. Another huge accomplishment with their new CD is that it’s available on iTunes.
The quintet’s music might be your stereotypical pop-punk, but it seems to be more mature than the usual bands. They are full of energy and you can almost imagine the passion they have for their music. The guitars are great, the melodies are catchy and the lyrics are heart-felt. From what I’ve heard, I can only imagine how great their live performance is, but I’d definitely try to go see them whenever I can.
And if you want to check them out live for yourself, they’re playing a show at the Middle East Downstairs on February 27 with A Cure For Static, The Lights Out and Thick As Thieves.
