Raised on TV
The Los Angeles based rock trio, Raised on TV, is currently in the midst of creating their second full length album titled “Season 2”, and has just released “Caroline”, the first single from the album.
It was described by Soundsphere Magazine as a “wonderfully fuzzy, constantly building alternative rock banger of a tune – melodic in a similar vein to Silversun Pickups or Hundred Reasons, this is ferocious, and effortlessly catchy.” The response to the new single has been amazing, getting picked up by several featured Spotify and Youtube playlists ("All New Rock", "Fresh Finds”) and the band is super excited to finish up the rest of the tracks. Caroline was recorded at The Elephant in the Room studio in Hollywood with Ethan Kaufmann on the same board that was used to track the Killers’ album “Hot Fuss” and it was mixed by Ben O’Neil and Mark Needham (The Killers, Neon Trees.)
Raised on TV is comprised of brothers, Keaton Rogers (guitar, vocals) and Kacey Greenwood (drums) and rounded out by Kacey’s best friend from high school, Ryan Weiss (bass). All three members grew up in the extra hot San Fernando Valley, and formed the band that would become Raised on TV in the Summer of 2015.
They recorded and released their first EP, “The Pilot EP” in 2016 with producer Flavio Monopoli, and followed that with as much touring and as many shows as possible, in their hometown of LA, and then also traveling to Canada and playing everywhere in between for what was titled “The Soccer Mom Mini-van Tour.”
The band got to work on their first full length album, “Season 1” in early 2017 with producer Josiah Mazzaschi (Light FM, Part time Punks) recording at his “Cave Studio” in Glassel Park. It was released later that year, along with their first three music videos. The album charted on the NACC top 200 and was described by NoGossipLA.com as “grooving from one track to the next with a familiar kick-assery that reminds us that blink-182 and Fall Out Boy disciples are alive and well.”
They saved up and bought a beaten up 1991 Ford van that they named “Polly” (a Nirvana reference) and toured up the west coast several times as well as throughout the American southwest, playing in Arizona, New Mexico, and Nevada for the “Looking for Aliens Tour” and then the “Season 1 Tour.” That van is currently broken down and awaiting repair after a crazy and traumatic (and fun) night in Las Vegas. After the breakdown, the band embarked upon the “Broken Down Van Tour” for shows and festivals in the American North West. They've played over 110 shows in their first two years as a touring band. Some of their more notable shows have been sharing the bill with Jefferson Starship and Ozomatli at The Topanga Days Festival in 2017, and recently opening for Marcy Playground to a sold out crowd at the Whisky a Go-Go in Los Angeles.
