The durable three-piece will hit American, European and South African highways for a 100 date touring year behind the new LP. Featuring Steve "Mr Bicep" Vorass on drums, Sean "Tubs" Anderson on 4-string & Brett Newski on guitars and vocals. NEWSKI has played with Pixies, Violent Femmes, Courtney Barnett, Gin Blossoms, Manchester Orchestra, Better than Ezra, Barenaked Ladies, & Nada Surf and has been featured in Rolling Stone, NPR, American Songwriter, SiriusXM, Boston Globe, NBC, Billboard and SPIN. "You will leave their show thinking 'wow this is really not my thing', or 'THIS IS MY NEW FAVORITE BAND." -Mike Mains “I really respect NEWSKI’s hustle as a middle-class musician,” Miller says. “[He’s] running his own show and steering his own ship. It’s very inspiring.” - Ryan Miller of Guster “I work at a venue, I’ve seen a million bands, I hate most of them, and I’m a grumpy fu#*. NEWSKI's live show is so great and well-dialed. He is great at what he does.” -Door Guy, Casbah, San Diego "Showcases the unapologetically frank but not overly aggressive nature of 90s alt. rock perfectly." -American Songwriter "I like the sound and the way he is forcing the world to contend with him." -Brian Ritchie, Violent Femmes NEWSKI is a band but namesake lead singer Brett Newski is a one-person army of positivity and community. Catchy tunes that grab your ear and then you dig deep and hear how they cut to the heart of it all. - Jim McGuinn WXPN
