DC-based pop-punk band, The Split Seconds, drop their new track/video, “How Was I to Know,” from their forthcoming, self-titled album. Since their first show only a year ago, The Split Seconds have showcased their “top-notch punk rock” (The Deli Magazine) at a multitude of well-known DC music venues, including DC9, The Treehouse Lounge and The Wonderland Ballroom, among others, and received airplay on WMUC Radio.
Founded by former Coastals and Boardroom Heroes guitarist Drew Champion in 2015, The Split Seconds were rounded out by Sean Peterson (drums/vocals), Alex Massi (guitar/vocals) and Tristan Sahwell (bass). The foursome bring a “revival of 1970s era punk with a sound that’s fast, simple, catchy and bold,” (The Writers Bloc). Much like the sound of their influences, the band’s name is a reference to the stripped down, fast-paced stylings of their idols, such as The Buzzcocks, The Clash, Generation X and The Damned.
Glory in Sound raves, “The Split Seconds stand out as a band ready to take the world by storm.” Keep your eyes peeled for more to follow up “Cutting Out.”
