1-800-BAND: Who You Gonna Call?

Describing themselves as “toll-free rock,” Brooklyn-based 1-800-BAND take inspiration from classic New Wave and power-pop anthems of the late ’70s, giving it a new spin. The group joined forces with producer producer Kevin McMahon (Titus Andronicus, The Walkmen) and sound engineer Carl Saff (Unsane, Guided By Voices) to create their new four-song EP, titled Diver Blue, which will be released on Almost Ready Records in April. They will be taking the stage at Death By Audio in their home borough of Brooklyn alongside Hector’s Pets on Feb. 23.
