New Website!

If you've made it this far then you are reading this on our brand new website format! It's been a long time coming, but as you hopefully know -- Post P is an entirely in-house organization. Most of the time we have to split up duties of whatever it is we're trying to do within just the 4 of us and that means we have to pick and choose what initiatives take priority.

We finished our last tour of 2016 in November and decided we were going to take this year to settle down a bit and do some writing, some reorganizing of our thoughts and lives and just 'refill the well.' It's been going swimmingly, except for the fact that we were unsuccessful in cutting down on our show schedule (surprise, surprise). We're a live band. It's not that we don't love writing records and being in the studio, it's that like most bands our size we make our money off of live shows and merchandise (thank YOU!). So there's still a good chance that we'll be coming to your town this year.

But even if we don't, know that it's because we're at home working on this new epic-in-scope record. I suppose, this is the first time we're mentioning it officially but it's a year of growth in a lot of ways -- the last 4 months we've been putting together some new tracks that are ...different. Bring It To Life is still very fresh in our minds so we're having a great time giving those songs our full attention at shows but when the creativity bug hits you just have to buckle up and hold on. 

It's time to go big. See you all soon,

-Nick

2017!

It's been a great start to the year already! Thank you all so much for coming out to our annual Hodi's Halfnote Birthday show -- we SOLD IT OUT and saw wonderful performances by Write Minded and The Hollow! It was an amazing night that we'll be reliving in our heads for years to come...

But now it's time to make some more great memories: First up, we'll be heading to Colorado Springs Friday, April 14th to play with The Monsters on Maple Street at Peak 31 (Union Station). Then we're happy to announce we will be headlining the Downtown Artery for this year's FoCoMX festival on April 29th at 11:45 PM!

And after THAT, we'll be heading out for a short Midwest run in May and it would be great to see you all at a show. (don't worry, more to come this fall)

Post Paradise Bring it to Life - Side B Now Available!

Side B of the two part album "Bring it to Life" released in September, 2016. The album has been met with praise over it's polished sound and the unique incorporation of the cello. (yay!) We worked on this album over the last two years after deciding to split it into two halves and release them separately.  It was a departure from our usual approach to album release, and as a result Side B has a slightly different feel than Side A. We are constantly evolving as a band, and I think even over just the year between Side A and Side B, the difference is noticeable.

We tracked majority of the songs all at once, but were able to take a step back when revisiting Side B and really decide which songs belonged on this album, re-track and adjust some parts, and write brand new songs to add.  It was a fantastic process tracking the album at the Blasting Room, a world renowned punk rock recording studio, and work closely on the songs with engineer/ producer Andrew Berlin. We also had a new addition to the band, Mr. Brian Zeiger on bass, and working with a new member on established and new songs added a different dimension than we'd had on Side A. It's so interesting to me that with even just one change of a member, the songs we write together will be completely different than with any other person. We all write our own parts, but we create as a unit and play off each other. Every part influences every other part, and slowly shapes the song. Isn't that crazy? Well, we love writing with Brian, and are very excited to keep creating with this team. We're already writing more songs! 

  Releasing an album or even just a single song to the world is such a nerve-wracking process. We spend years writing and recording these songs; creating every note and word from nothing, making them the best version of them that we can, spend countless hours practicing and adjusting and then recording them... all in the hopes that you will love it, and that the songs will speak to you.  We released this album with intention of making you feel something, maybe not exactly what we do about the songs, but something, anything, and just to connect with you.  From what we've heard so far, I think we've accomplished that mission.  Our band love what we get to do, and we hope to keep doing it for a long, long time. We hope you enjoy Side B of Bring it to Life

 

 

Days Away

Yup, we're only two days away from the release of our new EP Bring It To Life (Side B)! We hope to see you all in Fort Collins at Hodi's Halfnote on September 23rd for the party! Here's a little post to give you some background on how it came about:

Two long years ago we started writing a whole new full length record. Then we decided to split it into two separate releases, a Side A and a Side B. We were able to mirror the two halves in content, emotion - even the visual style of the packaging. Most importantly, it gave us time to really work on the songs and make sure that what we were putting out into the world would be of the best quality we can give. Side A came out last October. As we promoted it and played shows to support its release we were also back in preproduction with the songs that would end up on Side B. We worked for months and then went on a longer than usual tour. When we came back we had less than a week and only two practices before hitting the studio. We were so wrecked and tired and worried that we wouldn't be able to do it. But it all came together, we owe a lot of that to the help of Andrew Berlin. His patience is matched only by his skill as an engineer and producer. So here we are. Another Post P record. The second half of "Bring it to Life." Now you can understand why we're a little excited and anxious and maybe even terrified. "A band is only as good as its last record." We happily accept the challenge.

Home Again!

Well we're back in Colorado! We had a great tour, thank you to all of the wonderful venues that had us out, and to the great bands and awesome people we got to meet. We'll be heading back out in the Fall but FIRST, we are putting the finishing touches on Bring it To Life (Side B)! For those of you just joining us, this is the second half of our two EP set, you can find Side A right here
