I Surrender Records is thrilled welcome steve. to their growing roster. The band, who refers to themselves as “pop-punk but not THAT kind”, will release their upcoming full length You Can Do This Too on November 8, 2019.
The title of the record is meant to promote the idea that marginalized individuals can chase their artistic endeavors, and give a big ol’ “fuck you” to anybody who tells you that you cannot.
Fans can now check out the song and music video for “Ankle Biter” here below.
“Ankle Biter came from feelings of not being a good friend, which evolved into realizing I wasn’t the problem,” explains vocalist and guitarist Ky O’Connor. “It’s about dealing with a manipulative person, one who takes advantage of a friendship for their own personal gain. Kind of like if you’re a rich kid and your friends are only your friends to hangout in the basement home movie theater of your parents’ split level, open concept house – they’re not your friends, they just wanna fuck your roommate.”
Fans can pre-order You Can Do This Too today. steve. is confirmed to play a show on October 5th in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Check out details (and confirm your attendance) here: https://www.facebook.com/events/884511708575182/
steve. is a band we need. They encourage inclusivity, favoring friends over fans. They avoid playing gigs where the bands consist of all white men, and they’re not afraid to speak up about lack of representation in DIY, should they come across it.
The band is composed of vocalist and guitarist Ky O’Connor, guitarist and vocalist Nick Rapon, drummer and vocalist Zach Stier and bassist Eric Nuber.
I Surrender Records is home to acts such as Four Year Strong, I Am The Avalanche, Lincoln, Valencia, Vinnie Caruana and more. The label is based in New York City.
