Red Collar

Red Collar are Jason Kutchma (guitar and vocals), Mike Jackson (guitar and vocals), Andrew Blass (keys and vocals), Beth Kutchma (bass and vocals) and Tim O'Toole (drums).
The band is based in Durham and Chapel HIll, North Carolina. The band's music is often described as kind of like Bruce Springsteen fronting Fugazi. Even though the band denies any relation to bar-rock music, one can often recognize the Hold Steady like guitar riffs in their songs. From the other side, the punk rock influence is strong and is responsible for the aggressive interpretation and high-energy songs.

This year Red Collar released their debut album - the Hands Up EP. The band built a strong fan base, played a SXSW showcase and toured the mid-atlantic region. The Carolina Hurricanes (pro hockey) actually play the Red Collar's album at their games and it's also got added to a bunch of college radio rotations - KEXP & XMU among others. Recommended!
