You may be surprised to find out that great things have come out of Philadelphia besides Rocky and Cheese Steaks. One of those things is The Better Half. Formed in early 2008, the band has quickly taken the Philadelphia / New Jersey area by storm with infectious melodies, high energy live performances, and a devotion to their fans that is second to none.While the band draws from a diverse pallet of influences including artists that range from Foo Fighters to Tom Petty, The Better Half has carved out a sound that is uniquely their own. The band had local radio support and airplay of their last release (Equilibrium) in the Philadelphia, Allentown, State College, and New Brunswick markets and has headlined / sold out some of the top venues in the Philadelphia / New Jersey area including World Cafe Live, The TLA, Starland Ballroom, Crocodile Rock and more They have also supported artists such as Halestorm, Cavo, Black Stone Cherry, Adelitas Way, Saves the Day, Fuel, and Sebastian Bach. The Better Half is primed and ready to explode into the national spotlight.
The Better Half is currently finishing their first full-length, self released studio album, with a collection of songs that goes deeper, bigger, and farther than the band has ever been. Plans are in the works for a regional tour to support the release of the album.
“We could not be more grateful for all the love and support our fans have shown us, and we cannot wait to bring everyone some new music. All of these songs are written from the heart with all of the passion, pain, and inspiration you would hope for from a band.”
