WHO IS PROMISE GAME
The best things in life occur unexpectedly. In early 2020, a group of friends decided to reclaim their love of music. In a typical New Hampshire basement, five musicians came together after taking a break from the music scene. What began as a weekly jam session of pop covers eventually turned into the lively pop/punk "six pack" known today as Promise Game. The band includes Colin VanDenBerge (vocals), Adam Elverson (guitar/vocals), Michael Cochran (Guitar), Matt Eisenstadter (bass), Eric Schneider (keys), and Mark Elverson (drums). After feeling a spark of creativity, the group released their debut EP “It Won’t Be Long Now...” The cohesive collective of songs showcases the band’s large range of influences. From Say Anything to New Found Glory, each track offers a fresh new take on an emo sub-genre. Their cover of Sheryl Crow’s “If It Makes You Happy” stands out as well, providing fans with a look on how the band began.
In April 2022, Promise Game released their latest single, “I Give Up, You Win” ft. Paper Monsters. The song gives listeners a strong and nostalgic sound reminiscent of the early-2000s. Combining the harmonies of The Rocket Summer with the bright melodies of Motion City Soundtrack, Promise Game finds its own unique sound in a post-Warped Tour world. Looking at the band’s success since their start, it sounds like fans and outlets agree. The band was named CTRL + Space.com’s “Band of the Year” in 2021, as well as selected to appear in Discovered Magazine’s “Undiscovered Class of 2022.” In addition to sharing the stage with Driveways and Goalkeeper in just three shows, Promise Game shows no signs of slowing down. So, what’s next? Promise Game is taking life as it comes, because spontaneity is when the magic happens and everything puts itself into place.
