Junket Live – Let the fun begin!
May 6 @ 9:00 pm - 12:00 am
Having emerged from the hard rock scene of Orange County, NY, Junket’s first full-length release “Weapon of Choice” is set to establish the band as a high-energy rock powerhouse that fluidly combines both introspective lyrics with an intense, yet melodic sound. The band strives for an energetic and emotional live performance that stays true to the quality of their recordings – and delivers.
The group, which got started in 2000 and found its current lineup in 2004, has found its place among the area’s elite bands by releasing several EP’s over the band’s lifespan. Their first debut, “The Answer” EP, sold over 4,000 copies while the title track and first single “The Answer” received generous airplay from radio stations all over the Tri-State area. In 2007, the band released its second EP, “A Dagger With A Smile”, which saw its single “Miss Trust” find its way onto the airwaves and boost the EP’s sales to over 5,000. These two albums, along with relentless touring, catapulted the band into Orange County’s hard rock mainstream.
Touring the United States, the band has played with many national recording artists such as Breaking Benjamin, Trapt, Flyleaf, Taproot, Eve 6, Rev Theory, Evan’s Blue, Josh Todd of Buckcherry, Gizmachi, Trust Company and Ill Nino. Sharing the stage with these successful bands seems to only be a foreshadowing of things to come, as Junket is poised to take aim at the music industry and establish themselves as rock’s next big thing.
With their new album and its first single, “Weapon of Choice”, the band intends on making a statement to the music world – they are here…and they are here to stay.
