As of January of 2014, Senior Discount has played over 250 shows in RI, MA, CT, NH, NJ, NY, PA, and VT, and has won the Providence Phoenix Best Music Poll for Best Punk Band two years in a row.
We've shared the stage with such acts as Gym Class Heroes, Girl Talk, Boys Like Girls, The Bravery, Less Than Jake, The Ataris, Leftover Crack, A Wilhelm Scream, the Street Dogs, Zox, Big D and the Kids Table, Darkbuster, The Swingin Utters, Rehab, Mickey Avalon, Streetlight Manifesto, the Bloodshot Hooligans, Monty Are I, The Loved Ones, MC Lars, Suburban Legends, Patent Pending, The Toasters, and many many more.
Our first album "There Were Four Who Tried...", has gotten positive reviews from all over the US (and internationally), including very positive reviews from Maximum Rock N Roll (CA), which boasted, "These guys can rock and screamâ¦.a strong full-length," and the revered AbsolutePunk.net, which stated "The band really acts out their emotionsâ¦.Every track from the album is an anthem to punk rock's principles."
We also focus heavily on film production, as we've used short comedy films to promote for our shows and releases. Our first full-length film ("VBW Attack: The Senior Discount Movie") was a documentary about the band, reviewed by The Noise (Boston) which reported "...let's just say that this DVD is gold and that the band, and those with them, have some mighty winds at their sails." The national television network G4 has bought and aired footage from the film.
Our follow-up EP "And That's Goodbye" was reviewed by the award-winning, national sensation mash-up DJ Girl Talk, who said "This EP proves that the skeletal wave is present. These guys slay on record and live!"
Our newest album is the freshly-released "This is Not the End", which is a CD/DVD package that comes with a DVD of our first live comedy podcast performance. We premiered the first single off the album, "Cindy", live on the historic radio station 95.5 WBRU. The release party for the package took place in Providence, RI at Lupo's Heartbreak Hotel with Badfish in November. The album is currently being sent out for reviews, and we are looking to promote the album by continuing to play out all over New England.
