Left on Northwood / Press

“Great band, they play great music and put on a super high energy stage show! They are a must see live band.”

“It was only a few years ago that the members of Left on Northwood moved to Lawrence to pursue music on a more serious note than their previous projects. After a number of close calls with rent, the group is gearing up to release its debut album “Gut Check Personality.” The disc’s screamo-influenced hard rock tunes take inspiration from Warped Tour godheads like Thrice and The Used. Alternately abrasive and melodic, the disc may well help Left on Northwood land its own slot on the lineup of Warped Tour or the rack of Hot Topic. Members Todd Anderson, Mike Dye, and Cody Stapleton joined us to discuss the new record and share some anecdotes from Warped Tours of yore.”

“No category can contain Lawrence rock band Left on Northwood. So we’ll invent one: spasmo. Or, when emo and hardcore punk have a baby that can play metal riffs...”

“Todd Anderson, drummer and founder of band Left on Northwood and 2008 graduate, moved to Lawrence to join the local music scene and get an education to boot. Left On Northwood’s mix of punk and hard rock prowess gives the band aspirations of the Big Time (they travel across the country for shows and are releasing an album, Gut Check Personality, on iTunes and Rhapsody on February 24), but Left on Northwood still humbly appreciates their music roots in Lawrence and the openness that the local music scene offers its partakers.”
