TRANSIT METHOD | EPK

Transit Method is a dynamic rock trio from Austin, TX that brings together the complexities of progressive rock with the unrefined grit of grunge and heavy metal. Consisting of brothers Matt and Mike LoCoco (guitars/vocals and drums, respectively) and Danny Borja (bass), the band has been writing, recording and performing together since 2014. That same year they self-released their Celebrate Mutations EP and followed it up with their Roach EP in 2016 on Basement Avatar Records drawing comparisons to the likes of Soundgarden, Rush, The Mars Volta, and Motorhead. 

 

In 2017, the band signed with Brutal Panda Records and released their first full length album We Won't Get Out Of Here Alive. Sounding like Geddy Lee fronting a grunge band, the album was revered as “really fucking rad” (MetalSucks). They’ve also been described as “a powerfully epic combination of punk, metal, and dynamic vocals calling to mind some of the more truly epic moments of Jane's Addiction's 'Ritual de lo Habitual'" (PunkNews). The Austin Chronicle ranked it in their Top 10 albums of 2017, and the single "Snake Wine" was rated the #1 song on Australia’s “You Heard This?” podcast. They’ve performed across the United States in over 25 cities, including events such as the F1 Festival, and have shared the stage with the likes of The Sword, Consider The Source, Boogarins, Adelita’s Way, Flaw, Rishloo and Hikes. 

 

The band is set to release their second full length album The Madness on Brutal Panda Records in Summer of 2020. Having spent months collaborating and recording demos, the band feels this is their most confident and ambitious album yet.
