Indie Rock Band The Phantoms – Indie Rock band The Phantoms continue to beat to a “Different Drum” with new release
Nashville, Tenn. (May 20, 2014) – Following up their debut EP with their latest album, “Different Drum”, The Phantoms continue to experience a wave of success and underground fan following. In an age when music discovery is an evolving concept, the band has cracked the formula for non-traditional promotional vehicles and capitalized on it. “Touring is a great way to connect with fans and get your music out there, but we have found success through commercial placements. Our song “Gonna Celebrate,” off the new album, was recently selected for use in a T-Mobile commercial and we’re stoked about it”, says lead singer Andrew Simple. Their debut album garnered multiple song placements, including placements in Lowes Home Improvement spots and in two worldwide Microsoft Windows commercials which generated over 10 million hits on Youtube. “You just can’t beat that level of promotion for your music,” says Simple.
With hard hitting guitar riffs, speaker-blowing vocals, and an attitude that is equal parts blithe and earnest, this album radiates all things cool and great about rock & roll. Its a format that has not historically been the mainstay of the Nashville music scene, but is increasingly rising to the top, and as the tides are shifting a wellspring of indie rock / folk and even pop artists are starting to emerge from music city.
With the support of Independent Music publisher peermusic’s digital label, Digital Pressure, the latest album from The Phantoms album is staying true to its indie roots. Discussions are currently underway with record labels overseas.
