With 90s-influenced alternative rock on frustrated love, Schwarzenegger, and masturbation, Preamble’s debut album touches hearts and minds
(or at least gets audiences on their feet)
SOMERVILLE, MA – Massachusetts-based rock trio Preamble today announced the release of their EP, The Greatest E.P. In The World Ever, on iTunes, Amazon MP3, Spotify and on CD (yes, they do still exist).
With influences including the sultry 1990s sounds, wit, and humor of Blink-182, Toadies, and Piebald, Preamble’s musical ambitions are simple and straightforward, like their motto: “We (Rock) the People.
As Wasabi Media Group’s John Frazetta writes in a recent column on the band, “These boys know how to do two things: rock and roll. Frazetta adds, “I don’t think the founding fathers would approve of their lyrical content.
Perhaps they would have appreciated the irreverence. After all, what’s not to like about song titles “The Greatest Song in the World Ever, “Arnold Schwarzenegger (The End of You), and “Masturbation Litigation Singer Josh Caissie’s infectious vocals on the frustrations of love—both requited and repulsed—meld with the driving guitar (also Caissie), urgent bass and backup vocals of Jay Provost, and fast, solid drum lines of Pete Fernandez. The result is a fun, angsty EP sure to keep listeners coming back for more. Album art by Daniel Weiss is not to be missed: a rocking Abe Lincoln is riding an eagle while destroying the Eiffel Tower with guitar lasers.
The band took shape when Caissie and Fernandez, who had been playing together and in other bands for more than four years, invited Caissie’s brother-in-law, Provost, to join them. Since then, the band has played to packed houses at All Asia Bar in Cambridge, Church Restaurant and Music Club in Boston, McGann’s Pub in Boston, PA Lounge in Somerville, and Jam Factory in Manchester, NH.
“For us, the music is about having a great time and making fun of the depressing feelings we’ve all had about love and lust, says the happily married Provost. “With every show, our goal is for our audience to share our fun and leave feeling awesome.
In addition to their original songs, Preamble is known for their rocking covers of tunes including TV theme song favorites “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, “Denver the Last Dinosaur, and “Reading Rainbow.
But you don’t have to take my word for it. You can experience Preamble’s high-energy, extra-fun performances around the Boston area.
