The Split Seconds sign to Altercation Records for new album “Center Of Attention”

DC’s pop punk band The Split Seconds have signed to Altercation Records who is planning to release their full length entitled Center Of Attention in the spring of 2017.

Altercation co-owner Travis Myers had this to say:

“We are very excited about signing The Split Seconds, they have a retro punk sound that reminds me of the bands I grew up listening to, almost a hybrid between The Dead Boy’s and the Jam…they also have a modern sensibility that I think will appeal to anyone who likes good rock & roll. We had heard of them through mutual friends in the music business and I had listened to their stuff which I thought was really great, but once I saw them on stage I was sold, The Split Seconds are an act that will be noticed.”

Altercation is planning on a March release for the album which will be immediately followed by a tour down to Austin Texas for Appearances at the South By South West music convention, and numerous tours in 2017.

The Grizzly Band bass player loses leg in tragic accident, campaign launched to help fund expenses

Here’s a story I hate to write. Matt “Scootch” Appelby, bass player for Houston’s alt-country/punk act The Grizzly Band was traveling with a group of friends when he had to pull over to assist one of the group members with some car troubles. He had parked on the shoulder with his flashers on when a car veered off the highway and struck him.

He was he was medevaced to a hospital in Alexandria Louisiana where they had to make the decision to amputate his left leg just above the knee. Matt is in positive spirits at the moment and has a large group of friends and family support with him in this difficult time.

Friends describe Matt as having “such a big heart [he] would give the shirt right off of his back for anyone.”
