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).

HUGE thank you to everyone who came out to the fundraiser for Puerto Rico last night - especially to Kimberly Hughes for putting together such a great event, and Dino Colacito for jumping in with us for a very special song at the end of our set!

Here is a little taste of last night - if you want to hear what this whole song sounds like when it’s all four of us playing, come check us out at Arlene's Grocery this Saturday night at 8pm!!! Everything we make that night is also being donated towards relief in Puerto Rico

We'll be donating all proceeds from our show at Arlene’s Grocery on Saturday, October 21st to the Hurricane Maria Community Recovery Fund. Hope to see you there.

We have a few things we're working on to help support our family and friends back in Puerto Rico. This show is just one of three great opportunities in our community that you can take part in. More details to come including a full benefit show that we'll be performing an acoustic set at, and our partnership with Last Turn Off Broadway to raise as much money as we can for those in need.

There's a lot going on and a lot we can all do to help. Stay tuned.

There's something really special about playing a show in the park. You get to connect with all different types of people. You see people walking bye, and stopping, and then watch them decide to stay the whole set, or whole afternoon.

And in the case of Tompkins, you also get irate junkies cursing you out before during and after your set.

It's the best.

Thank you to Mike Mangan for getting us out in front of so many awesome, diverse, people.

Much love to them, our friends in SouL UnHinGeD, Trip On Gravity, and all the other tremendous bands.

And saving the best to last: Thanks to everyone we know who came out. Thanks to everyone we just met that stopped and listened.

And thanks to that junkie too, we'll try harder next time.

About last night...

"Thank you" seems like too tame of a phrase. But it's the best we got. Thank you to everyone who came out and partied with us at Lovecraft Bar NYC. Your energy was unbelievable.

Thank you to our road brothers in SouL UnHinGeD for bringing it. And to the guys in Drift Theory - great meeting you - we're looking forward to doing this again. Thank you to Seven Crown for putting together a hell of a lineup.

See you all next weekend at Tompkins Square Park.
