Out of Service have released their new album, Burden, to all streaming services. The record is a three-act concept record about suffering from depression (Threshold, Sleep, Ash), deciding to get help (Stories, Chemicals, Burden), and learning to live with your mental illness (Trauma, Uneasy, Tomorrow).
Out of Service is an indie rock outfit from the South Jersey/Philadelphia area. After a decade-long hiatus, Out of Service reformed in 2016 with its original lineup of Mike Capuano (vocals), Bryan Williams (guitar), Ken Bond (drums), and Brian McGovern (bass). Settling into the chemistry they had from years of writing and performing together, the band released its first full-length album, Morning, in 2018. Soon after the release, Radio 104.5 Philadelphia selected Out of Service as a top 4 Philly-area band based on the strength of Morning and their regional fan base. At live shows, Out of Service has built a loyal following as the result of their dynamic brand of intensity and musicianship. The band has been booked at some of the most storied Mid-Atlantic venues with acts like Mat Kerekes (Citizen), All Get Out, Shortly, and Valencia.
Building upon this success, the band completed their forthcoming sophomore effort, Burden. Burden was mixed by Nathan Hussey (All Get Out) and mastered at Vu Du Studios by Frank Mitaritonna. It is a synthesis of the band’s raw emotional energy and indie sensibilities. The first single, “Stories,” features Madeline Finn (Envoi) who blends her soaring vocals to amplify the emotive energy of the song.
