There is nowhere to run. You cannot escape the torrent of 23RAINYDAYS. Their sound is a lush, impeccably mixed brand of rock that assails you with the classic melancholy of 80s new wave and the cutting edge of modern hard rock. The result is music that has blended mass appeal into one thoughtful sound.
There is a wry humor that is evident throughout the band's unofficial mission statement "23RAINYDAYS writes music that we hope will end up in John Hughes' films when John Hughes makes a triumphant return to Hollywood... We write music that kids can relate to... well... mainly kids that wear alot of black." They joke about a narrow genre that belies the true universal appeal of their music.
23RAINYDAYS can say a lot for itself. Already the band has shared the stage with the likes of Kill Hannah, The 69 Eyes, Katatonia, Thrill Kill Kult, Modern English, Wednesday 13, Hanzel & Gretyl, Violent Femmes, Guided By Voices, Program the Dead, and many others. The band is ranked number one in its region for its genre on Myspace and they've been featured on every major radio station in the Washington, DC and the Mid Atlantic region.
The band is moving forward with determination. Their last CD "From Today Until Forever" was their most successful release to date and they hope to surpass it's sales with the their latest effort "Wonderful Disaster". They are performing select dates through the end of the year and planning their most ambitious tour ever for 2009. With a sound that is both classic and cutting edge, it's almost a given that widescale recognition awaits 23RAINYDAYS. Get ready for the downpour!
