In Her Arms/Sam | The Upwelling

The Upwelling are no stranger to this blog. But they were a stranger to folks in the UK...until now.

The Upwelling have been opening up for The All-American Rejects for the past month, jetsetting from Ireland to Scotland and now England. Every time I talk to Josh, he's ecstatic with the response they've gotten. They sold out of all their EPs the first night. From my own experiences, music lovers in the UK are so much more open to discover new bands. Maybe it's just New York, but they don't have any preconceived notions when it comes to an opener. That's fantastic, because you shouldn't have any notions of The Upwelling. Every time I listen to them it's like the first time. I'm still completely blown away.

Lucky for us they are coming back to the US in just a couple days and have started to plan their trip to SXSW.

February 28 - Mercury Lounge, New York, NY
March 2 - Chestnut Room, Philadelphia, PA
March 4 - Alley Katz, Richmond, VA
March 5 - Jammin' Java, Washington DC
March 6 - The Cave, Chapel Hill, NC

More dates will be announced but start getting ready. I think 2006 is going to be their year.

Did I mention they are up for Band of the Year? They are neck and neck with Demander but we can pull them ahead! If you dig The Upwelling and want to help out super nice guys....VOTE! Every day. Every minute. Unless it won't let you, which is why I am here telling you to.

Here are two of the first Upwelling songs I ever heard. Expect new recordings on the horizon.

  • The Upwelling - In Her Arms/Sam
  • The Upwelling - Murdered By A Big Bomb
