Timeflies will perform with Truslow at Purdue University’s Elliott Hall of Music on Saturday, March 7 at 8:00 p.m.
This performance is presented by the Purdue Student Concert Committee with support from the Student Fee Activities Board.
“Timeflies” formed in 2010 and is composed of producer Rob “Rez” Resnick and vocalist Cal Shapiro. After a year of releasing singles, the duo released their debut album, “The Scotch Tape,” on September 19, 2011, which rose to #2 on the “iTunes” Pop chart within 24 hours of its release and also peaked at #4 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart.
Timeflies created a YouTube series called “Timeflies Tuesday”. The series is dedicated to interacting with their fans by bringing them new music in the form of remixes, live covers, and freestyled original beats. A new video is released almost every Tuesday on their YouTube channel, which boasts nearly 400,000 subscribers.
The group’s second album, “After Hours,” was released in April 2014, reaching #8 on the Billboard 200. The album, according to AllMusic.com, is “full of slick, radio-ready party anthem pop songs.” He goes on to say that vocalist Cal Shapiro “has a resonant voice perfectly suited for moving between swaggering raps and soaring, laser-beam choruses with equal aplomb,” making Timeflies “the type of artists who can imbue their body shot-inspired party anthems with an emotional urgency that borders on the poetic.”
Truslow is an alternative pop/rock band from Columbus, Ohio. Their loyal following has experienced an exponential growth, thanks to the July 2014 release of their second EP “Hurricane.” Having reached #1 with their single “ADHD” on multiple radio stations across the country, selling out a handful of headlining shows, and touring with “Twenty One Pilots,” this band brings a positive energy to their fans that they hope will make them feel like they belong to something bigger than themselves.
