Brainstory has new album, tour dates this month

San Bernardino Valley trio Brainstory has premiered a video for, “Dead End”, via Earmilk - share via YouTube - off their upcoming debut album, Buck, due out November 15 on Big Crown Records.

Brainstory will celebrate the release of Buck soon with Big Crown label showcases (see below), before a proper release celebration in Los Angeles, December 27 at the Moroccan Lounge.

Led by brothers Kevin and Tony Martin, with drummer Eric Hagstrom, the guys have been releasing a series of singles leading up to their debut album ’s arrival, “Mnemophobia” was featured on KCRW/Los Angeles as a 'Today’s Top Tune' along with “Beautyful Beauti” on the ‘Pan Caliente’ program. “Sorry” was included in Remezcla’s ‘Neuvo Noise’ column, and most recently, "Cover It Up", "a rally cry for all the cultures and peoples who have built this country, yet continuously get mistreated and scapegoated."

After releasing two EPs on Chicano Batman’s El Relleno Records, Southern California's Brainstory caught the attention of Big Crown’s Danny Akalepse and Leon Michels. They went to Queens, NY to record at The Legendary Diamond Mine with Michels over 10 days.

Kevin, Tony and Eric’s story began in the twilight zone known as Rialto, California – an arid wasteland of boredom and empty lots. Through punk rock and skateboarding they found temporary liberation from the local monotony. However, it wouldn’t be long before a hunger for more led them to explore musical realms beyond that of the hardcore punk they admired. After stints at music school and steady disappointment trying to navigate their local jazz scene, they moved to Los Angeles and Brainstory was born.
