"If there's an off-center California pop sound for the here and now, this is probably what it sounds like." – LA Weekly

On July 10, Nettwerk Records will release the debut album from Los Angeles-based Family Of The Year, titled Loma Vista.

Starting July 21st, Family will share the stage with Milo Greene on select dates. The band has already played sold-out shows in England and across Europe, including a triumphant set at France’s renowned music festival Les Vieilles Charrues, and garnered support stints with Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Mumford & Sons, Grouplove, Good Old War, Belle Brigade and more. To celebrate the album release, the band will have three shows in Los Angeles. Partnering with Filter Magazine, Family will start the month with a two-week residency at Bootleg Theatre (July 2 and July 9) followed by a record release party with local record shop, High-Fidelity on release day.

The band is excited to hit the road to perform new songs and already-familiar tracks from last year’s St. Croix EP; which was heralded by NPR as “ebullient, full of stylistic left turns” and “intense and atmospheric” by Rolling Stone.

Enlisting producer Wally Gagel (Rolling Stones, Muse, New Order, Sebadoh, Rihanna, Eels, Folk Implosion), this is the first time that the band has gone outside their own camp while recording their music. “Having him work with us was really helpful, because you have to be pushed to edit yourself and be better, be stronger, work harder on things,” says lead vocalist/guitars, Joe Keefe. “Working with someone like that who knows exactly what we wanted it to sound like with the same exact vision, it was really kind of a no-brainer.”

Formed in 2009, Family Of The Year is rounded out by Sebastian Keefe (drums, vocals), James Buckey (guitars, vocals) and Christina Schroeter (keyboards, vocals).
