Razor & Tie’s latest developing act Such Gold’s debut studio album Misadventures crashes into the Billboard Heatseekers Chart this week debuting at #6 with 2,350 albums sold in its first week out. Misadventures also lands on a number of other Billboard charts including: #34 on the Independent Chart, #165 on the Top 200 Album Chart, and #6 on the Vinyl Chart.
Produced by Steve Evetts (Every Time I Die, Saves The Day, Lifetime, The Dillinger Escape Plan), Misadventures is the first full-length album from the Rochester-based melodic hardcore/punk band. Alternative Press says “Misadventures slays through 11 rip-roaring melodic hardcore tracks, showcasing the very best (and fastest) the band have brought to the table since their inception.”
Such Gold have also announced additional tour dates this summer including runs with Strung Out and Silverstein. Full tour dates are below.
Such Gold formed in 2009 and have reaped the rewards of their tireless efforts by releasing two EPs, Stand Tall (2009, Mightier Than Sword Records) and Pedestals (2010, 6131 Records). The band also released music on a split EP with Into It. Over It., and released an additional EP with A Loss For Words this past November. Fans of Such Gold have been attracted to the band’s pop-punk stylings as the young group marries their love for old school pop-punk, hardcore and indie rock. Alternative Press has raved about the bands’ music, “a pitch-perfect, gimmick-free example of how solid the melodic hardcore-influenced pop-punk sound could really be when imbued with an indelible enthusiasm and adolescent passion” and proclaiming the songs are “breathtaking” and “leaving one wanting more.” The band has toured with The Wonder Years, We Are The Union, A Loss For Words, Man Overboard, Polar Bear Club, Fireworks, Balance and Composure, Rust Belt Lights, Maker, Kills and Thrills, etc. Such Gold is Ben Kotin (vocals), Nate Derby (guitar), Skylar Sarkis (guitar/vocals) and Devan Bentley (drums).
Such Gold’s Misadventures is Razor & Tie's most recent Rock success story. The label’s roster also includes All That Remains, The Sword, P.O.D., For Today, Chelsea Grin, Nonpoint, Norma Jean, Shadows Fall, Attila, For The Fallen Dreams and developing acts like Defiler, I Am War, Such Gold and more to be announced soon.
