Getting sick and tired of new bands playing along to drum machines, loops, and backing tracks, Keith Gibbons set out to start a band that stuck to original rock roots. Gibbons (Vocals/Guitar) called on friends Nick Costa (Drums), Steve Angelo (Guitar/Vocals), and Josh Solomon (Bass) and Modern Suits was born.
With influences like The Foo Fighters, The Joy Formidable, Alkaline Trio, and Thrice, Modern Suits set out to create music that brought emotion without the use of drum machines, loops, auto tune, and backing tracks....to create a band that only needed bass, guitar, drums, and vocals.
Modern Suits succeeded with the release of their debut EP In Transition (April 2011), a five track record that keeps listeners hooked from beginning to end. Currently the band is playing throughout the greater Philadelphia area to gain more exposure, all while delivering a show that sounds identical to the EP.
