Modern Chemistry, the New Jersey indie rock outfit, are the very special guests on the 99th episode of the Socially Distanced Podcast.
Brendan Hourican and Joe Zorzi of Modern Chemistry join hosts Bill Bodkin and Al Mannarino to discuss the band’s history from their first show ever in Asbury Park 10 years ago to the release of their current EP, tomorrow we wake up from the longest collective dream of our lives.
In the podcast the band discusses:
- Their first show ever — a Pop Break produced show — at The Wonder Bar in Asbury Park
- Why they played a 15 minute version of The Outfield’s “Your Love” on their first show
- Meeting Taking Back Sunday — who’d eventually become major players in their careers
- Modern Chemistry’s sonic transition
- How this transition impacts their setlist
- Being in Alt Press
- Their thoughts on touring
- Transitioning from fans and writers (both worked for this site) to becoming contemporaries with musicians they interviewed, wrote about and were fans of
- The narrative and sonic themes behind tomorrow we wake up from the longest collective dream of our lives
- Story behind Bill and Al’s favorite track, “All The Thing I Do To Get to You”
- Plans for 2022 — will you be a touring band or more focused on the creation of music
