The Stolen Sign to Revival Recordings, New EP Due Out January 2019
New Jersey pop rock outfit The Stolen have signed to Revival Recordings whom will be releasing their new EP early next year. Their first single “Change The Record” will be released on August 10th via digital platforms including Spotify, Amazon Music, and Apple Music. The album was co-produced by guitarist Rob Chiarappa and Brody Greif (Knuckle Puck, The Movielife, Crime In Stereo), mixed by Rob Chiarappa, and mastered by Robin Schmidt (Biffy Clyro, Wolf Alice, The Vaccines). In the meantime, you can catch the band on tour throughout July.
The Stolen has come a long way since they were ripping covers of classic rock anthems and Motown tunes at their elementary school’s Fifth Grade Fun Night. The band consists of vocalist/guitarist Dominick Cuce, guitarist Rob Chiarappa, bassist Kevin Smart, and drummerMike Chiarappa. Before they honed their songwriting skills to craft inviting pop hooks and kinetic guitar melodies, they started off as a group of friends exploring their love of music by learning and performing AC/DC songs together.
Almost 10 years later, after playing countless shows locally, the band released Adults in 2013, which they recorded with producer/engineer Jesse Cannon (Animal Collective, The Misfits). This also marked their first release with bassist Kevin Smart. In 2015, they reached a turning point with the release of their single “Chardonnay,” recorded with producer Paul Levitt (All Time Low, Have Mercy). This began a transition from their pop-punk beginnings to put more focus on their pop sensibilities. Spring of 2016 marked the arrival of their self-released, self-produced EP I’m So Dead, showcasing their shift from a fast, loud pop-punk band to a more groove driven, pop-rock sound. It also landed them recognition from MTV who called the EP “the perfect pop-alt soundtrack to take you into the summer season.”
