After announcing a headlining Spring 2024 tour, Remo Drive have dropped “New In Town”. Following vocalist and guitarist Erik Paulson’s move from his home state of Minnesota to Albany, NY, “New In Town” is a baroque indie rock ballad that tells a story of embracing the challenges of discovering one’s place in a new city.

““New in Town” is a song about the loneliness of moving to a new city, being the only stranger in a room full of old friends, and misconstruing bar names for human names,” Erik explains. “This song came to be after an especially homesick night, but really took its shape throughout the recording process. It’s our quietest song yet, and one of our most adventurous productions.”

Remo Drive features brothers Erik (vocals/guitar) & Stephen Paulson (bass). Their home-recorded, self-released debut LP Greatest Hits (Epitaph) arrived in 2017. Inspired by Jeff Rosenstock and PUP. Over two years since their last headlining tour, Remo Drive are planning on hitting the road in 2024! With support from Los Angeles rock band Wilt, the US Spring run kicks off on March 8th and will traverse major cities such as Los Angeles, Nashville, NYC, Chicago and more before ending with a hometown show in Minneapolis on April 14th.
