New Planet Trampoline Album Release Show
March 12, 2016 @ 9:00 pm$5
Reuniting in 2013 after an eight-year hiatus, New Planet Trampoline is releasing the long-awaited double album they started before they broke to work on different projects. Join them at the album release show Saturday March 12 at Cleveland’s famed Happy Dog.
Part of Lakewood’s long-standing Davenport Collective, which started in the mid ’90s in the Kent State music scene, New Planet Trampoline recorded Dark Rides and Grim Visions in the space the collective has been working out of for more than 15 years. It’s being released on Stow House Records, the label co-founded by Cleveland legend Ken Janssen.
The band consists of Matt Cassidy (guitar, vocals), Ben Gmetro (Farfisa, vocals), Dave Molnar (bass, vocals) and Charlie Druesedow (drums). Members have played together in other bands as well, including The It*Men, The Hot Rails, and The Dreadful Yawns.
Hear a track from the new album below, and watch a video of when they covered Pink Floyd’s The Piper at the Gates of Dawn for Halloween, which wound up taking them to Austin Psych Fest in 2014.
