Animal Years
"Mark my words, you will be singing these tracks after only one round through this album." - VIOLENT SUCCESS

Brooklyn's Animal Years bring a fresh face to Americana Rock. With influences ranging from early Kings of Leon, My Morning Jacket, Young The Giant, The Avett Brothers, Animal Years is driven by Mike McFadden's crisp vocals and magnetic poise, featured on their debut record, Sun Will Rise, released on May 6th, 2014. They are currently in the studio with Ryan Hadlock who produced platinum selling album The Lumineers and will be releasing their next full length in 2017.

Mike McFadden (lead vocals, guitar, and banjo) is backed by Anthony Saladino (bass) and Anthony Spinnato (drums). Since the band formed in 2013, they've sold out shows at esteemed venues like Gramercy Theatre, Brooklyn Bowl (NY) and LA's Hotel Cafe, and have opened for major headlining acts including Bronze Radio Return and Robert Randolph and the Family Band. In 2014, the band's music video for "Forget What They're Telling You," which featured Bailey Noble of HBO's "True Blood," was premiered by Conan O'Brien's blog Team Coco

Free-wheeling, feel-good melodies and smooth ringing guitars shine on Sun Will Rise. From the glorious opening track and first single, "Meet Me" to rockabilly closer, "Walking Slow," the quartet delivers indie rock with grace. Title track "Sun Will Rise" blossoms with country/folk tinges, and dancy "Forget What They're Telling You" crescendos with impassioned vocals and guitar strums. Sun Will Rise showcases the delicacy and introspection behind songwriting and draws on the strengths of McFadden's seasoned voice and multi-instrumental abilities.
