Hopefully you haven’t put the finishing touches on your “Best of 2017” album lists yet, because we’ve got ourselves a pretty solid contender added to the field from seemingly out of nowhere! Well, out of New Jersey, but still.
It comes to us from none other than Jared Hart, probably best known for his role as frontman of Garden State punk band The Scandals. He released his first solo album, Past Lives & Pass Lines, a couple years back and went on tour both as a member of Brian Fallon’s band, The Crowes, and as a solo artist, where he performed alongside the likes of Frank Iero, Cory Branan and a bunch more. While on those shows, he had the occasion to perform a few of his solo songs alongside a full band, and got the bug to re-record some of the more standout tracks with a band in a studio setting. The result? A four-song EP called Past Life Regression…which is not only officially out today, but is officially available for “pay-what-you-want” download below. Check it out!
Past Lives & Pass Lines was released in November 2015 on Say-10 Records.
