I Am Cassettes / Press

“In early 2010, I Am Cassettes was formed by Josh Paschke and Kevin Garcia. The duo released their first EP, Lovers and Liars, in November 2010. The band grew to include Jon Levario and Darren Garcia in Sept 2010. Their sophomore EP Suitcase life was released in October 2011. In 2011, I Am Cassettes has headlined and sold out “The Wire” in Upland as well as playing packed shows at The House of Blues in Anaheim. With less than two years under their belts I Am Cassettes received notoriety in such publishings as: Amp Magazine, IE Weekly, OC Weekly, Press Enterprise, and were named Hot Topic's "Unsigned Band of the Month" in July, 2011.”

“I Am Cassettes may be a new name on the street, but their past musical endeavors give them over a decade’s worth of experience. Singer/songwriter Josh Paschke started the band with bassist Kevin Garcia in 2010. The guys, who both come from metal and hardcore backgrounds, knew that they had found their own niche outside of a scene that was growing stale. With the recording of their debut EP, ‘Lovers and Liars’, Darren Garcia (drums) and Jon Levario (lead guitar/backing vocals) were made permanent members of the band. I Am Cassettes is currently in the studio recording the follow-up to ‘Lovers and Liars’, to be released later this year.”

“I Am Cassettes self-released sophomore EP, ‘Suitcase Life’ showcases the bands progression throughout the past year, displaying raw emotion and mainstream appeal that will continue to increase their ever growing fan-base while maintaining their DIY ethic.”
