New Jersey’s Bobby Mahoney have signed to Wicked Cool Records and have dropped their new single, Empty Passenger Seats, which will appear on the band’s upcoming label debut, Another Deadbeat Summer, that is due out on June 14th. Bobby Mahoney will also be appearing at Asbury Park, NJ’s Low Dive on the 4th May.

“I initially wrote the first part of ‘Empty Passenger Seats’ while we were driving home overnight after playing Richmond, VA for the first time. We were driving up the NJ Turnpike as the sun was rising. We had this feeling of accomplishment that we were doing exactly what we should be doing, and that imagery became the bridge of the song. I then spent time with our friend Dan Cohen (Creating Clementine) on the riff and the chorus in East Brunswick at my parents’ house. I remember also working on it with the band in a Motel 6 in Carlisle, PA, and listening to rough mixes in a parking lot in Georgia. It is very much a road song, and a good representation of what we do as a band. Geoff Sanoff’s mix and Joe Lambert’s master really heightened it sonically, and we are excited for people to hear it, and we are especially excited to be joining the Wicked Cool Records roster!” (Frontman Bobby Mahoney)
