Anthony Raneri of Bayside, Dustin Kensrue of Thrice, Chris Conley of Saves The Day, Ace Enders of the Early November and Evan Weiss of Into It. Over It. are are all doing solo acoustic performances on Where's the Band? this Tuesday at Yost Theater in Santa Ana. (Check out our interview with Pryor here.)
The tour coincides with the release of Raneri's debut solo EP. Recorded at Hurley Studios in Costa Mesa, Raneri's guests on the album include Steve Choi (RX Bandits), Davey Warsop (Beat Union) and Jarrod Alexander (My Chemical Romance, Dead Country). "I basically wanted to create an awesome environment in the studio with a couple of good songwriting minds and really good vibes, stir it up and see what comes out," he says about his collaborators.
The solo EP has been a long time in the making, he says. "I always wanted these songs to see the light of day but I knew they wouldn't work for Bayside."
