Kellin Quinn (Sleeping With Sirens, Downer Inc.) and William Ryan Key (Yellowcard) have unveiled a new family-friendly project called The First Rock Band On Mars.
Completed by Howi Spangler (Ballyhoo!) and James DiNanno (Silhouette Rising), the kid-friendly, pop-punk quartet will deliver originals and covers of children’s songs in their own style.
The idea spawned from DiNanno‘s 2020 best-selling children’s book, The First Rock Star on Mars, and this is what Quinn had to say about it.
“I think it’s important for parents and their kids to have a song that they’re both into, one that doesn’t feel punishing to put on in the car or at home and listen to. That’s what we set out to accomplish.”
Their debut self-titled album is set for release on June 11th 2021.
