Family Of The Year Adds Dates With Hey Ocean!; Album Available Now

“Melodies bristle, harmonies surge, hooks fly dense as bullets…a bright and startling debut” - NME

Out now, Los Angeles-based Family Of The Year release their Nettwerk Records’ debut album, Loma Vista.

Starting July 21st, Family Of The Year will share the stage with Milo Greene on select dates in the US, followed by a month-long tour with Hey Ocean!. 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 get a glimpse of the "live" sound, check out the above stripped down performance on Wilcox Sessions taping, filmed in Los Angeles.

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).
