Reverse the Curse
Reverse the Curse hails from the small town of Hiram, OH, where the three first started playing in sixth grade. Still practicing in the same basement they formed in, Ed Starcher (vocals, guitar), Connor Johnson (bass, vocals), and Joey Regets (drums) have created their most cohesive, powerful, and meaningful material to date with their upcoming Paper + Plastick full-length debut.
"Hither & Yon" is slated for a July 2011 release. Recorded in the fall of 2010 with Eric Cronstein in Columbus, OH, this full length follows their 2009 "Paths" EP (recorded in 2008, a week after they graduated from high school, released by Lock and Key Collective). Whereas many bands call it quits after graduating, Reverse the Curse held together, toured incessantly, and unashamedly created honest and driven music that's as powerful as it is fresh. Haunting and infectious, slow churning yet commanding swells intertwine with ghostly tones to deliver an immeasurably memorable record.
