Soapbox Army is a rock band, formed in 2008 in New York. Their self-titled debut album was released in April 2009, combining elements of modern rock, alt rock and folk. It went on to garner many positive reviews as the band began to play shows all over the NYC area including some headlining gigs in prominent NYC venues.
The band continued to write new material, and in March 2011, they went into the studio to start recording their second album, Reactor. They worked with producer Little Pioneer (Craig Levy) in Brooklyn NY, who also produced their debut. With the new album, the band looked to expand their sound and their dynamics, while at the same time making the songs tighter and more concise. The result was a decidedly more "rock" album than the first – Reactor combines hard rock with atmospheric and even electronic moments, creating a dynamic sense of mood. Without completely overhauling their sound, they evolved it into something bigger.
Reactor was released in April 2012. The band is currently promoting the new album with shows all around the NYC region with touring and festival plans in development for the near future. They are also preparing material for a follow up EP (to be released early 2014).
"The NYC band plays rather reflective alt rock with a mellow, existential attitude. Their self titled debut album showcases Dan Tucker's crisp vocal tone and his talent for unconventional pop melodies." -thedelimagazine.com
