junior prom “sheila put the knife down”

    Two dudes with a fresh new groove...

    by · October 03, 2013

    When Mark Solomich (formerly of The Takeover UK/The Rassle) and Erik Ratensperger (ex-The Virgins/The Rassle) got together in the studio recently, there was no telling what the result would sound like. The duo adopted the name Junior Prom and judging solely on the first single from their EP (due out next week on Elektra Records), this might be their best work yet. Their first single “Sheila Put The Knife Down” has the “Ooohs” of Ratensperger’s previous project and and the thumping bass line of Solomich[’]s. It’s the perfect marriage of keyboard, guitars and a pop chorus with a four letter word to keep it dirty.
    The Junior Prom EP drops October 15th and the guys will be on the road non-stop supporting it, definitely something we wanna see live. For more on the guys go HERE and find more jams on their Soundcloud HERE. Check out current tour dates below.
