New Age Americans is a Post-Alt rock group based out of Chicago, Illinois composed of lead guitarist, Tyler Hodgett: Rhythm guitarist, Liam Poe; Bassist, Jake Smith; and drummer, Robert John McGaw. The group formed in 2015 and since played at many notable venues over the past four years including but not limited to Reggie Rock Club (Chicago), The Canopy Club (UIUC), and the May'd in Michigan Fest (Augusta, MI).
The group has been writing, recording and performing their own music since their formation. Their debut Album No News is Good News (2017) brings insight into the experiences of many young adults in the complicated mess of society today. As the band continues to mature and flourish they bring new, complex writing styles into play. Their highly anticipated single Young Adolescent (2018) describes their personal journey into adulthood with no holds barred.
For the New Age Americans it's all about the music. Some might say music is a way to escape reality, but they see their music as reality. The writing process is a way to see past the struggles of everyday life and get in touch with their soul while simultaneously touching the hearts of listeners.
