Chasing the Following
While the term rock band might sound one-dimensional in today's music industry, taking the time to listen to Eighteenth Hour's wide range of rock songwriting on their latest CD "Chasing The Following" puts that misconception to rest. From the driving rock anthems 'Halfway Gone' and 'Unsaid' to the intimate ballad 'Wasted' to the funk-rock infused 'How Can I Make You Understand' to the groove-oriented single 'Would I Lie', this new release highlights a fresh, acoustic-driven rock sound from Eighteenth Hour while still capturing the energy and intensity that the band has become known for. Eighteenth Hour's accomplishments include winning numerous Lehigh Valley Music Awards including 'Best Rock CD' and 'Best Original Band', receiving '5 out of 5 stars' for the 'SHINE' CD review and 'Best Original Band' in the Reader's Choice Poll of Pulse Weekly Magazine, being named 'Best Band' in the Lehigh Valley Magazine's Best of The Valley Poll, and being the RECORD HOLDER for 17 consecutive days at #1 on vMRadio's "Top 10 at 10" chart. Eighteenth Hour's reputation as a great live band spread quickly after winning WZZO 95.1FM's 15th Annual Backyard Bands Competition which was judged by representatives from Atlantic, Virgin and Interscope Records. This was the launching pad that lead Eighteenth Hour to regular performances at the best original music venues in the tri-state area including The Bitter End (NYC), Grape Street Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA), The Mercury Lounge (NYC), Godfrey Daniels (Bethlehem, PA), Arlene's Grocery (NYC), and their upcoming CD Release concert at Sands Casino Resort (Bethlehem, PA). They have also performed several years at the nation's largest free festival, Musikfest (Bethlehem, PA).
