Los Angeles, CA, August 25, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Rock band ONOFF is pleased to announce a new single off their acclaimed EP 'Reborn.'
The band released their fifth album earlier this year - a fitting title, given the circumstances. The band came to the United States around 2013 after much success in Europe. ONOFF's first two albums charted very well in Ireland, landing them on bills with bands such as Fall Out Boy and Dropkick Murphys. Their first European-wide release, "Don’t Take Our Word for It," sold more than 130,000 copies, according to frontman Paulie Daly.
The new album, "Reborn," is much like the band’s previous work: hard, grinding guitar parts, passionate, aggressive vocals and memorable, anthemic choruses and punk rock beats. They have a lot in common with bands such as Rise Against.
Since their move across the pond to Sacramento California, ONOFF have built a strong fan base due to their energetic live shows and constant touring and momentum continues to gather speed. With multiple appearances on prime time TV and extensive airplay on major radio stations, ONOFF are gaining new fans across the U.S by the second.
"Reborn" is the band’s first US album release and in its entirety was wrote, recorded and mixed in California. "Keep that Fire Burning" is the opening track from the album and was released in April 2017 and was accompanied with a video shot at the bands H.Q featuring fans and friends. "Don't Look Surprised" is another track from the album and was voted 5th most requested song of 2017 on 98 Rock, one of California's biggest rock radio stations. "Hayley" is the newest single being sent to radio this week.
Big Noise has worked with the band since April 2018.
After a few years of touring in support of their first successful album, the trio—consisting of Daly, drummer Stevie Bogan (also known as Stevie 10 Bears) and bass player Dave Hurrell - sold everything and headed to the Golden State.
"It was like pressing the reset button," said Daly. "We had a lot of success in Europe, and when we came here I think we only had a small group of friends that really knew about what we were doing, so we built our foundation from the ground up with nothing."
ONOFF quite emphatically hit the ground running, and they've been playing all over California ever since they arrived. The band has played a diverse array of venues, many of the locations having been plotted out prior to their arrival from the Emerald Isle.
"As we were making the decision to come here," said Bogan, "we looked at venues we wanted to play and that were realistic, places that bands we admire and we look up to and we listened to that have played here. We got to play these places. Bottom of the Hill, Slim's, Whiskey-a-Go-Go … All of these places that we sort of went 'you know, that's where it all happens'."
"Even the Gilman in Berkeley," continued Daly, "where some of our favorite bands - the Offspring, Bad Religion - they’ve all played these places. There was this great punk scene that was super influential to us as teenagers growing up, and that was partially the reason we decided to make the move. We felt like we needed to pay our dues in the scene that influenced us. Every time we play these places, we play some of our best shows."
