New Jersey three-piece Surprise of the Century released the first single off their upcoming eponymous EP with a show at Pianos on October 1. The single, titled “The Disabled Ableist,” was recorded by The Meatlocker’s Dan Rivas and mixed and mastered by Young Legs’ Steven Donohue. The EP will be the band’s first formal release since their demo was released in November of last year.
One of the area’s most active DIY bands, Surprise of the Century has been gracing the stages of The Meatlocker, Clash Bar, and Boontunes for over a year, while frontman Sean Ritz is also known to book one hell of a show on his own. The band is overdue for a proper release, and I’m personally very excited to see what they have lined up for us.
