Philadelphia, PA – Philadelphia trio Transitshop are set to play Fontana’s on May 10th at 10:30pm. The band has taken the music scene by storm with their debut, full-length album Velocity. With shimmering guitars, richly longing vocals, and urgently powerful rhythms,Velocity was previously released on Rock Ridge Music (Reel Big Fish, Sister Hazel). Transitshop’s emotionally charged live show continues to mesmerize audiences, where they’ve shared the stage with diverse and established bands such as Goo Goo Dolls, Alkaline Trio, Walk The Moon, A Silent Film, Fastball, State Radio and more.

Founded by Chris O’Brien (Guitar) in 2010, Transitshop is rounded out by the fluid rhythm section of Vinnie Pastore (Bass) and Derek Gallagher (Drums). The three-piece has been favorably compared to both atmospheric bands like The Cure, The Police, Crowded Houseand The Cars, and more modern acts like Death Cab for Cutie, Ra Ra Riot, Tokyo Police Club and The Bravery.  The band’s previously issued independent EP debuted at #20 on the CMJ’s Top 200 Radio Chart, and tracks from it received play from over 50 FM stations nationwide.


The trio came into its own during the summer of 2011, right after its inaugural EP release. “I was really in the zone then. It felt like everything was coming together. Instead of writing one song like this, and one like that, the songs had a cohesive flow to them,” O’Brien says. Through online networking he met Detroit-based producer Matt Dalton (Chiodos, I See Stars, These Hearts) who helped streamline song arrangements and find otherworldly guitar tones. Velocity was partly recorded with Dalton at 37 Studios in Detroit and at Thermal Productions in New Jersey with Stephen McKnight.
