A Common Year offer free download of new album

From what some may call the dull and dark Indianapolis music scene, A Common Year are quickly emerging as a bright spot in the indie pop punk genre. To this point, the band has embodied the meaning of “do it yourself.” A Common Year’s recently released 12-track debut album, Between Cities, was written, recorded and produced solely by its four members in bedrooms and basements throughout the state of Indiana.  In less than six months, Between Cities has amassed upwards of 3,000 online downloads, and has been featured and praised on popular music sites such as Absolutepunk.net and Alter the Press – impressive for a band with no prior releases and a playing tenure of under one year.

The members developed as a band while attending different universities in separate cities – earning degrees, while at the same time, crafting a completely independent album that displays a matured approach to song writing, and provides a glimpse of A Common Year’s undeniable potential to bloom.  The band’s work has drawn comparisons to Jimmy Eat World, The Dangerous Summer, Acceptance and The Graduate – to name a few.

To sweeten the pot, A Common Year offers Between Cities, in its entirety, completely free at http://www.acommonyear.com – a true testament to the band’s desire to be heard – not paid.  The promising four-piece is in the process of relocating to Chicago – a city with no shortage of musical talent – as A Common Year look to continue their upward swing toward musical prominence.
