Las Vegas, NV -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/18/2014 -- Going by the numbers, The Forty Nineteens are already forming promising careers in the Temecula, Calif., national and international music scenes. Taking an engaging spin on the intersection between pop and rock, The Forty Nineteens are armed with their latest album, Spin It, and aim to continue ringing in the successes seen by the release of their debut album. They are also having one of their tracks featured on WiFi PR Group’s upcoming compilation, Indie Anthems Vol. 6.
The group is comprised of four members: John Pozza on vocals and bass, Chris Whelton on guitar, Chuck Gorian on guitar and Nick Zeigler on drums and vocals. These four musicians have drawn influences from a wide range of artists to produce their particular pop-heavy alt-rock sound, including Graham Parker and the Rumour, the Byrds, The Cars, Tom Petty, The Rolling Stones and more. As a result, their music is most often compared to Elvis Costello, Tom Petty, The Psychedelic Furs, The Ramones and The Plimsouls.
The Forty Nineteens’ debut album, No Expiration Date (2012), was a smash hit and received awards, positive press and international airplay, including more than 100 college and commercial stations in the U.S., Spain, UK, Belgium, Sweden, South America and Japan. Described as a blend of modernized 80s pop, garage rock and roots rock, this hit album made several best of 2012 lists. These include No. 19 in Oklahoma Lefty’s Top 30 Albums of 2012, a place in the Top 20 albums of 2012 from The Little Lighthouse, No. 81 in Power Pop Action!’s Top 100 Albums of 2012 and No. 119 out of 1001 Records for Music Lovers’ 2012 top albums list.
Following up that successful debut, The Forty Nineteens have released their latest recording, Spin It (2014), which builds on the beloved harmonies and soul of the first album. Both albums were produced in accordance with David Newton of The Might Lemon Drops fame, and this album is already beginning to cause rumbles in the press and blogs based throughout the world.
In addition to their latest album, The Forty Nineteens’ next step toward worldwide fame will be when their track “Modern Romance” is featured on WiFi PR Group’s Indie Anthems Vol. 6. It is a collection of international independent talent that WiFi PR hopes to put on the radars of music lovers and industry tastemakers the world over. Set to be released at Toronto’s NXNE in June 2014, the digital mixtape will be handed out on 3,500 download cards to festival attendees, and another 1,500 download copies will be made available on the Indie Anthems Bandcamp page.
