Sat, Apr 26 – Tobacco Road – 354 West 41st Street, New York, New York 10036
Over the past five years, Gotham Rocks has staged the most exceptional bands New York City has to offer, and is picking up some serious steam in 2014. On Saturday, April 26th, NYC’s biggest rock showcase presents ANAKA at Tobacco Road. This heavy-hitting metal powerhouse will be supported by SROTAKIN IV and TEMPEST CITY.
ANAKA left a blistering mark in the Heavy Metal and Hard Rock scene of the world with their mammoth release of The Glorified Crusade. The record made a crushing impact on Hard Rock radio, achieving TOP 20 positions on both FMQB Commercial Metal Radio and CMJ Loud Rock charts. Airplay at numerous radio stations in the NYC area catapulted ANAKA to many sold out performances at Irving Plaza, Highline Ballroom, Bowery Ballroom and CBGB’s. ANAKA’s video for “Erase,” directed by Kevin J. Custer, hit national and international television and internet stations with full force, becoming the #1 most viewed video in May 2010 on MTVMusic and collecting hundreds of thousands of views on Music Choice, VH1, MTV Latino, and many others. ANAKA has opened for such acts as FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, SHADOWS FALL and OTEP.
The rest of the bill is a force to be reckoned with. SROTAKIN IV turned heads at Irving Plaza for the Gotham Rocks Five Year Anniversary Blow Out in 2013, and accumulated fans with their hard-hitting, sense-offending rock. The thunderous TEMPEST CITY’s soaring rock will open this massive night for heavy music.
