The band has some shows lined up around the release of the record, including an appearance at Attention! Fest at the Slidebar in Fullerton, CA on September 6.
Combining elements of alternative rock, indie, and pop punk, Bristol To Memory’s sound is influenced by bands such as The Get Up Kids, Brand New and Saves The Day.
First formed in 2005, their name originates from the cross streets in Santa Ana where front man Rory O’Connell, brother/bassist, Kealan O’Connell and their childhood friend, drummer, Alex Buster, grew up. Rounded out by Daniel Wonacott (former guitarist for Finch) Bristol To Memory is now stronger than ever. Their musical compositions and collaboration evoke a feeling of nostalgic excitement with their dynamic guitar progression, thrilling choruses, and poetic lyrics.
Touring the United States, Canada and most recently Mexico City, Bristol To Memory has performed on noteworthy stages such as the Vans Warped Tour, SXSW Music Festival, House Of Blues, The Roxy, and The Whiskey.
Bristol To Memory’s music has already been licensed for several national television networks such as MTV, The Oxygen Channel, and Fox Sports West with the Los Angeles Angels Baseball Club.
Receiving the award for ‘Best Punk Band’ from OC Weekly in both 2014 and 2015, Bristol To Memory has gained a reputation of one of the foremost up and coming bands in Southern California. With five solid EPs of material already under their belt, Bristol To Memory recently wrapped production on their first full-length album produced by their own lead guitarist Daniel Wonacott.
