San Diego, CA pop-punk/rock trio, founding member and trombonist, Matt Vernon, Eric Brozgold, and Mike Mule, collectively known as Alive & Well announced their sophomore EP, From Basements to Beaches!
The EP is due for release on June 3rd. Fuck Yeah Pop Punk Raves: "Alive & Well's EP, From Basements to Beaches, embodies so many things I love; music that reminds me of the sunny beaches of California, aggressive riffs where I can feel the members emotions, and lyrics that hit home on so many aspects of my life. What more could you want in a pop punk band?"
The 4 track EP was engineered and mastered by Beau Burchell at The Cottage, and mixed by Alan Douches at West Side Music. This concept album explores the ideas of positivity, determination, and perseverance; focusing primarily on overcoming life’s trials and tribulations. Matt States, “Bad things will happen, you'll have to encounter heartbreak, death, and tragedy and you'll have to move through it." Proving that determination years ago, the group self-produced an EP, The Escapism Sessions.
Matt started playing the trombone at a very young age, and continued to play in college where he learned classical and jazz. Most of his passion to pursue music generated I high school, and it was there where he decided to form Alive & Well. The group went through a few phases and drafts, but after several years, Matt teamed with Mike and Eric to form the group that has such a large following today. They’ve performed alongside musical geniuses such as Light Years, Driver Friendly, Such a Mess, Head North, and A Will Away.
