It’s Just the Beginning…. Pickwick Commons announces album release tour

The music industry has been changing and evolving in many different ways over the past decade and one of the biggest trends we’re seeing is the influx of DIY bands. Artists that are out there grinding on their own whether it’s recording the music, booking tours or just managing the day to day responsibilities, the DIY scene has been blowing up. One recognizable name from that scene is Pickwick Commons who have shown that hard work and dedication really do pay off. The band recently announced the release date of their new record, “Weak Bones” (out March 15th) and are stoked to announce they will be hitting the road in support of the album.

Having over 175+ shows, including dates on Vans Warped Tour, under their belt in just the last two years, Pickwick Commons are no strangers to the van life and living out on the road. This tour will be especially momentous as they’ve picked some of their favorite stops to showcase the new music. Vocalist Adam Loellke shared, “We’re beyond excited to bring “Weak Bones” to some of our favorite tour destinations the week it comes out. We have been grinding on the road tour after tour, year after year, to make this release as big as possible and are psyched to be doing it with our good friends in LUCA.”

The band kicked off 2019 in a strong way with their first single off the record, “Suffer” that has been garnering the band much deserved attention. Pickwick Commons is a band that’s hard to pinpoint into one genre and fans will be taken on a musical journey on the upcoming album as the band isn’t afraid to experiment with different genres, all while staying true to themselves. Pre-orders of “Weak Bones” are available now and keep on eye on the band’s social media as more music and exciting announcements are on the way.

About Pickwick Commons:
You don’t wait for opportunity to find you when you are Indianapolis’s Pickwick Commons, you go out and create your own. Touring relentlessly since becoming a full time band in May of 2017, the Midwest progressive modern hardcore act has been across the country and back purely on their own work ethic and desire to perform.

With a message that is built heavily upon self-reflection, the band has established their sound across their Split EP “Short Lived” and their 2018 single “Conjuncture” as being emotional, groovy, and brutal. Complex time signatures, melodic riffs, and crushing breakdowns are accented by the four-piece’s use of three vocalists that promise a unique take on modern heavy music.

Operating as DIY so far for Pickwick Commons hasn’t been about “doing it yourself,” but about “learning how to do it and doing it right.” Self-produced, self-booked, and self-managed hasn’t held them back from building their following heavily in the Midwest and expanding beyond constantly with tour after tour and word of mouth.

With promises of a new album on its way that pushes their prior musical boundaries, the band has set 2018 to be only bigger and crazier than they could have ever imagined when the four set out in 2017. With Vans Warped Tour dates and over 100 shows under their belt and on the horizon, there’s only one thing for certain: don’t sleep on Pickwick Commons.
