The Tins In The Press

“This song off the band’s upcoming debut EP kicks off with a modern-day ‘Twilight Zone’ vibe that morphs into an extraordinarily moving seven-minute-long serenade. Hopefully this is a good indication of what the rest of the EP will have to offer.” – NME (UK) on “The Green Room” by The Tins

“Every so often music fans come across a young band that is far from amateur. They dazzle you from the start and make you wonder how they are not bigger. This is how I feel about a fantastic band from Buffalo, NY called The Tins.” – We All Want Someone To Shout For

The Tins are bloody fantastic! A three piece out of Buffalo who might just have wandered into our new favourite band category with ease.” – The Recommender (UK)

“That song, ‘The Green Room,’ doesn’t proceed into the room as if it’s embarrassed to be there, shyly introducing itself and then heading straight for the bar. Rather, it makes the sort of grand entrance that only the most self-aware can pull off...” – The Buffalo News


More About The Tins

Buffalo, New York-based band The Tins recently released its self-titled five-track debut EP via V2 Benelux, the arm of the influential label based in the Netherlands. It might be out of the ordinary to be discovered by a major label so far from home, but the situation has turned out well so far for the band.

“The Green Room,” (MP3) the first single from the Tins EP, has already gained the attention of the UK (and possibly the world’s) most influential music publication, the NME which called the track “extraordinarily moving”. The song is a seven-minute mini-epic that perfectly spotlights the cross section of Radiohead and Wilco that The Tins mine. Fans of pioneering artists such as Yo La Tengo and The Flaming Lips will find much to like about The Tins as well.

The band is now beginning to make its presence known in the states. The energetic stage show put on by Mike Santillo (keyboards, vocals), Adam Putzer (guitar, vocals), and Dave Muntner (drums) shows off the great chemistry these guys have with one another and is also reflected in their collaborative songwriting, multi-instrumentalism and the shared lead vocals of Santillo and Putzer. New fans in the US will be happy to hear that The Tins will play several shows during CMJ week. See below for US dates. Fans in Holland will have to wait just a little longer.

The Tins are available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
