In the midst of a full-on rock revival, Nashville, Tennessee’s MODOC has established itself as one of the most irresistibly and undeniably new acts to emerge from Music City, USA. Their new self-titled release is out now and the single “Runnin” is available to stream below.
The band recently made a visit to Daytrotter. Check out 5 songs from that right here.
Also the band recently stopped by Smoakstack Studios in Nashville for a live session. Check out a performance of the single “Runnin” from the session below.
December 14 – Indianapolis, IN @ Do317 Lounge w Gringo Star
The four members of MODOC (Clint Culberson on vocals/guitars, Kyle Addison on lead guitars/vocals, Caleb Crockett on bass/vocals and John Carlson on drums/vocals) first met through the regional music scene at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. Culberson, who had previously lived in a nearby, one stop light town called Modoc, suggested the name during a band brainstorming session. The moniker was unique, direct and memorable. And it somehow fit perfectly.
Having turned out two blistering, full-length albums of potent, unvarnished rock in little less than 18 months, the four-piece is turning heads and earning favor with many of the city’s industry heavyweights, not to mention fans. Managers, producers, publishers – even network television – have taken notice of one of the smartest, most original sounds to come out of Nashville in a long time.
