Over the course of a career that stretches back a few years now, the Youngstown-based rock band the Vindys have performed at various festivals including LaureLive, Winnetka Music Festival and Summeriest, where the band won the first day of the Emerging Artist Series selected by voters on Twitter.
Additionally, the Vindys have shared the stage with the Drive-By Truckers, Judah & the Lion, Hunter Hayes, Reeve Carney and more.
The Vindys have released a few singles ahead of the album, including “Want Your Heart,” “Morning Light,” and the anthemic “Are You Ready,” which was featured as part of the Pittsburgh Pirates and AT&T Sports Net “Friday Night Rocks” campaign that showcased local bands during Pirates broadcasts.
“We finished the record last year during the pandemic and ultimately decided to wait to release it until we could comfortably play in front of our fans,” says singer Jackie Popovec in a press release. “We worked so hard on the songs that we felt that they deserved to have a proper release party in front of our hometown crowd.”
The Vindys will be on the road the rest of the year and will perform on Sunday as part of WonderStruck in Cleveland. They'll also play a special album release show on July 31 at Youngstown Foundation Amphitheater as part of the amphitheater’s Premier Bank Community series.
