Long Description:

A Lovely Crisis is flipping the proverbial finger to the manufactured “pop band” image. Formed in Pittsburgh, Pa in 2010, brought together by a mutual love of old school punk and post-punk artists, A Lovely Crisis is a 4-piece punk rock band that looks to find the beauty that comes out of turmoil. Having spent a large percentage of their lives during war time and financial crisis, their songs give voice to their frustration, touching on corrupt politicians and human rights.

Their new full length, “Where Do You Stand?” is a challenge to the listener to question where they stand on issues that affect all of us. Produced and recorded by Anti-Flag’s Chris(#2)Barker, “Where Do You Stand?” is due out June 3rd on A-F Records with extensive East Coast and Midwest touring to follow.

After meeting in college in 2013, Antonio DiBiasio (drums) and David Pinkerton (guitar) began jamming their favorite songs together. They eventually began writing original songs and the band grew, gaining the talents of Doug Boylan on lead guitar and Sam Allison with vocal duties. Josh Mauro later joined the band, jumping onto bass after performing vocals in his previous musical efforts. The band began recording in the summer of 2017, releasing their first single that fall.

A Moment in Pompeii’s name reflects the temporary nature of life in a broken and unforgiving world: do what you can, while you can. Make your moment matter, because life is fleeting.
