Album Release Announcement!

 

This November, Fordham Road will be releasing their self-titled debut album. Fordham Road was conceptualized when the band formed in January 2016, and it tells the story of how four individual artists became united in a single musical vision. On the album you’ll hear several styles of music influencing the progressive rock sound that has become what Fordham Road is today.

This will be Fordham Road’s second release of 2017, coming on the heels of The Gates of Heaven EP that was released in February. The new full-length album will feature one previously released single (“New Love in New Places”) along with nine newly recorded tracks, some of which will be recognized by fans of their impressive live show.

Fordham Road is Kristian Veech (vocals/guitar/keys), Tom Shubsda (drums), Mark McCarthy (guitar/trombone/vocals), and Joe Everett (bass). Several special guests also contributed to this album, including Gianluca Farina (who also played trumpet on The Gates of Heaven), Chris Dorsey (from Slack Tide), Moe Michnick (from Astro Collective), and Ethan Wojick (who currently is performing with Chiggin and Baked Potatoes). The album artwork was designed by Nessa Godinez.

Physical Copies will be released on November 19th at Fordham Road’s album release show. It will be made available on all digital platforms on November 20th. The Album release show will be at The Midway Cafe in Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA. Tickets are only $5 and the show runs from 4-8pm. Tenfold Path, Robinwood, and Amanda McCarthy will be performing at this show as well.

Make sure to check out Fordham Road on Facebook and Instagram to keep updated on events leading up to the album release. Fordham Road would like to thank everyone who has supported them on their journey so far, and they can’t wait to share the new album with all of you!

“The Gates of Heaven” EP Release

Hey Everyone. Tom here. Some of you have probably seen the “11-29-2016” picture that we have tried to circulate around Facebook these past few weeks. Well today’s date is 11/29/2016, so I think it’s time to announce something.

On Fabruary 7th, 2016, I was informed that one of my best friends in the world, Jae Min Kang, passed away. The next couple of months following his passing was one of the most difficult times I have ever faced in my life. I was lucky enough to have an amazing support system of friends and family that helped me get through the stages of grief. That support system included the other band members of Fordham Road, which brings me to what we’re announcing today.

On February 7th, 2017, we are releasing “The Gates of Heaven,” which is a concept EP about what I was going through after Jae Min died. The EP features three songs that detail what I was going through this past spring, and they also offer a message of hope for people who have gone through the unexpected loss of a loved one.

This is an EP that I’m hoping will become larger than my feelings about Jae Min’s death. This is something I’m going to dedicate to anyone who has felt similar pain to what I have felt, and I hope that this EP brings comfort to a lot of you.

To celebrate this release, Fordham Road will be hosting a show on February 4th from 1-4:30pm at The Middle East Upstairs in Cambridge, MA. Our set list will be the EP in it’s entirety, this will be the first time we have performed these songs live and it will probably be the only time that you will all get a chance to see us perform every note of the EP top to bottom, so make sure to mark February 4th on your calendars now. Tickets will be $10 in advance and $12 at the door.

Also performing at this show will be Yankee & The ForeignersThe Justin Arena ProjectAmanda McCarthy, and Dreamer & Son. I hand picked these other artists to perform with us on this show because their music helped me cope with Jae Min’s death, so I hope that their music will help you if you are going through a difficult time. Make sure to check out their Facebook pages and again make sure you’re there on February 4th to see them perform!

Attached to this post is the EP Cover Artwork. Thank you to Justin Arena and Cameron Francisco for making this for us.

I would like to thank everyone that has been there for me recently, and I want to thank every Fordham Road fan for their continued support.

I love you all 

-Tom
