You might not think of the Midwest as a typical hotbed of up-and-coming music, but check out The Yavin 4 and you might just be surprised. The band springs from Indianapolis, and features members of hardcore punk act The Enders, as well as Lockstep, The Hardees, and Devil to Pay. They call their style “intergalactic rock n’ roll,” as their music and even their band name pays homage to Star Wars (Yavin 4 is apparently a moon, and you can learn way more than you want to know about it here).
The band will be releasing their debut 14-track album on May 25th, which also happens to be the anniversary of the premiere of the original Star Wars film.
