WHERE WE GO WHEN THERE'S NOTHING LEFT
Spring boarding off of their 2020 EP, “The Things We Used To Be”, the members of the pop-punk/emo quintet – Keith Karol (Vocals), Mike Piacentini (Guitar), Chris Stroz (Guitar), Kevin Miller (Bass) and Aren Millan (Drums) – better known as Northvale, is something to watch out for in 2021. Boasting features such as Joey Flemming of In Her Own Words on their debut single, “Sleepwalking”, and AJ Perdomo of A Dangerous Summer on the song, “High Tide”, these guys out of New Jersey have more surprises up their sleeves for their first Full Length LP, “Where We Go When There’s Nothing Left”.
Comprised of music scene veterans, Northvale formed in 2020 following the collapse of Keith’s former band when he and Sony Music Engineer Mike Piacentini reconnected at a show in NYC. Weeks later, the two met and recruited former guitarist of The Victory, Chris Stroz, and began writing what would eventually become the five-song EP. Adding friend and former bandmate of Mike, Aren Millan, to the mix during the recording process and welcoming Kevin Miller, former bassist of Mirror Eyes, to the squad, Northvale is set with a new record and their eyes on the future of Pop Punk.
By taking collective experiences over the past few years, the band has crafted an LP that deals with loss, heartbreak and acceptance that easily translates into the ears of all pop-punk listeners. The first single, “Good Intentions”, off of Northvale’s new album, will be featuring Ollie Baxxter of Broadside and deals with leaving bad relationships, and the personal growth associated with moving past toxic environments. It’s set to release on all streaming platforms June 11th. With plenty of work ahead of them and a powerful EP in their back pocket, the band plans on having a massive 2021 with no signs of slowing down.
