Disruptive and unafraid, OFF THE TURNPIKE is setting fire to everything in their path. The hard rock/alternative band from New York City is uninterested in recycling sounds of the past – they’re moving forward with a diverse sound that is all their own. Even before the release of their 2012 self-titled debut album, OFF THE TURNPIKE had built a reputation for their explosive live shows; but it’s their loud new way of releasing their music that has people buzzing. Instead of releasing a traditional album in a world where the focus has shifted more towards single songs, the band will be releasing six songs individually, giving each song its own time to shine. Each song will be its own multi-layered event. From release parties, to special concerts, and mind bending music videos for each release, OFF THE TURNPIKE plans to support their music and connect to their growing fanbase in new ways.

But one thing remains the same: a hunger for real, raw, rock music.

OFF THE TURNPIKE is: Andy Sexton (Vocals), Christian Vasquez (Guitar), Shawn Abraham (Bass), and Shawn “Salchi” Dieppa (Drums).

My Hope

In celebration of our sold out show this weekend, we’re continuing our release of the remaining songs off of The Onyx.

This one is called “My Hope”. It’s something a little different, and we’re really proud of it. There’s a good chance it’ll be making an appearance in the set at Mercury Lounge, so give it a few listens and let us know what you think!



We couldn’t wait anymore…..In celebration of this Saturday’s sold out show at Mercury Lounge, every day this week we will be releasing the remaining tracks from The Onyx. Get ready to sing along to Fool!
