THANKS TO EVERYONE At Radio Who Have Been Spreading The Good Early Word on Utah quartet The Aces newly released debut album “When My Heart Felt Volcanic”! The band remain out on tour with X Ambassadors for the rest of the month, and Then it’s onto Bottlerock, Firefly and Lollapalooza (Don’t Miss Them!).
“We have dreamt of putting our debut album out for basically our entire lives. We’ve never worked so hard on anything. These songs are all moments of the past four years of our lives and we hope you can all get to know us as artists and people a little better through them. This isn’t just our album it’s all ALL OF YOURS TOO. We could go on and on about all of the other people that were involved in the making of this, but you know who you are and know that we love you! More than anything, we are so grateful for this sisterhood we have nurtured and grown together. At the end of the day it is our friendship and genuine love for music and each other that has brought us this far. Thank you all for YOUR support and for being a part of our journey. We hope that you can sing, dance, smile and cry to WMHFV with us.”
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 for “When My Heart Felt Volcanic”, which contains a collection of songs that exhibits confidence and polish that bellies their young years.
