Utah quartet The Aces have announced their anticipated debut album, “When My Heart Felt Volcanic” (out 4/6) and which contains a collection of songs that exhibits confidence and polish that bellies their young years. Fans already pre-ordering the album receive an instant download of the track “Volcanic Love” which is also previewed at radio this month.
The Aces cut their teeth as a live band early, using the teetotal, all-ages venue The Velour as their testing ground from age 13 onwards. It was in this environment that they gained confidence and thrived, their lineup solidifying a year later when McKenna met Katie in junior high, who, thanks to her older brother’s love of music, had a whole rehearsal space in her parent’s basement. The newly formed quartet would now blend McKenna and Katie’s alternative tastes (they grew up on The Cure, The Beatles and Depeche Mode) with those of Alisa and Cristal to truly find their sound.
The Aces’ “Stuck” landed them in the Top 40 At Alternative Radio, and wrapped a successful 2017 of growth as Billboard’s Chart Breaker artist as well as their 2018 Artist To Watch
