The 88 are a four-piece rock band from Los Angeles known for their unexpected and powerful live shows. Their self-titled 6th studio album, out now, signifies a momentous return to their signature hooky and hi-energy sound. Together since high school, the guys seem to have a blast playing together and it definitely comes through both live and on their recordings.
The album is a great listen. Weeks after receiving a copy, I’ve still got it in heavy rotation. It’s a swaggering, strutting romp mixed with a few slow-slung ballads for good measure.
If you’re in LA, hope to see ya at the record release party! It’s Tuesday, October 12th at the Troubadour.
