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).

Grammy Nomination!

Well… we have some crazy news to share. We’ve (seriously) been nominated for a GRAMMY for Best Rock Song 2014. Let’s Burn Everything was recorded at Logos Recording Studios by the amazing Kieran Pardias. It’s surreal to think that this beast of a song is now in the running for an award like this. Just being part of the process is an insane honor.
