In March 2007, powerpop quartet Early Next Year holed up in their Orlando, Florida home with producer Travis Adams (vocalist for the One Eleven Records band, Inkwell) to record their infectious debut LP entitled "Catch These Words", which was independently released July 3, 2007.
Previously they had formed in 2003, spent 2004 playing shows around the Sunshine State, and 2005 saw the independent release of their well-received EP, "Sarcasm is Your Friend." Rather than focus on the past and what they have done, Wes Locher (vocals, guitar, moog), Doug McPherson (guitar), Bert Long (bass, vocals), and JoAnna Leitch (drums) are more focused on the future, and what they will do... have everyone singing along. Say hello to Early Next Year.
The band has played over one hundred shows across Florida, gaining fans and turning heads with their energetic live performance as well as sharing the stage with acts such as Gym Class Heroes (Fueled By Ramen), Between The Trees (Universal), Sound The Alarm (Geffen Records), Tyler Read (Immortal Records), Inkwell (One Eleven Records), The Progress (Negative Progression Records), Rory (One Eleven Records), & Damiera (Equal Vision Records).
"'Catch These Words' is laden with buoyant dance-rock vibrations and springy power punk confections... reflective of power punk magnates like Cartel, Rory, and Outsmarting Simon."
