Kendall Street Company Announces Forthcoming EP, ‘Untitled California Project’ & Tour Dates
Burgeoning jam-alternative group Kendall Street Company has announced a forthcoming studio EP, Untitled California Project, its accompanying introduction music video, and tour dates.
Untitled California Project is a tongue-in-cheek rock opera inspired by both the culture and natural beauty of America’s golden coast. Arriving June 24th, the project heralds the band’s long-awaited inaugural visit to the West, pairing dynamic musicianship with ingenious storytelling.
“I’m so happy we’re able to share [this] story through a visionary piece on the state of California,” explained the band’s multi-instrumentalist Jake Vanaman. “The project details a journeyman’s loss of innocence and follows his epic jaunt through the heartland of America. Think of it like a musical theatre show.”
Accompanying the album announcement, the band has also released a SNL-style introduction video. Shot by director Cal Ries, the video opens with the EP’s “California #1” while showing each band member preparing to depart Virginia for an epic voyage West. Watch the video below.
