The Interrupters Drop 'In The Mirror' Ahead Of Fourth Album Release
During the lockdown, Aimee Interrupter, partner and guitarist Kevin Bivona, and his younger twin brothers Jesse (drums) and Justin ( bass) built a home studio in their garage and created their most personal album yet. The band penned the album’s 14 songs together and Kevin Bivona produced.
In The Wild is the follow-up to 2018’s Fight the Good Fight , which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart. Canada outperformed all territories globally at radio; the GOLD-certified “She’s Kerosene ” peaked #1 Alternative and spent 4 months at #1 (Overall Rock) and “Gave You Everything ” peaked #2 Active Rock . The band has now amassed over 400 Million Artist Streams !
After supporting Green Day and Weezer on the Hella Mega Tour, the band will co-headline a summer tour with Flogging Molly. Canadian tour dates to be announced!
The three Bivona brothers met Aimee Allen, a solo artist at the time, in 2009 while touring with their band Telacasters supporting The Dirty Heads and Sugar Ray. In 2011, Aimee and Kevin started writing songs together and brought Kevin's brothers, twins Jesse and Justin, in to play drums and bass. That led to the four forming The Interrupters.
The band got an early start, touring with bands such as Rancid, The Transplants, Devil's Brigade, and Left Alone; as well as playing the American music festival Riot Fest in Chicago and Denver, and the Canadian music festival Amnesia Rockfest, all before the release of their first record.
They were frequently involved with Tim Armstrong's Tim Timebomb and Friends project, which saw the online-release of a song a day for an entire year. They were also members of the touring group. The first single released was the song "Liberty", followed shortly thereafter by the song "Family", which features a guest vocal by Tim Armstrong and was previously released through the Tim Timebomb and Friends project. Both singles were released as limited edition 7"s through Pirates Press Records.
