The Warhawks - This Ain't Art [EP]
Comprised of brothers John and Pat Bilodeau, cousin Matt Orlando and close family friend Tom Lipski, The Warhawks are a dynamic, blue-collared indie rock outfit from Gloucester City, NJ.
Following a string of DIY releases, the band released their debut LP ‘Never Felt So Good’ in January 2019. Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Dave Downham (Into It. Over It.) at Gradwell House Recording, the album consisted of nine soaring punk alt-rock anthems that explored themes of love, hope, and desperation. ‘Never Felt So Good’ would go on to earn the band several accolades including 93.3 WMMR’s “Band of the Month” that following March, steady rotation of their song “Miracle” on top indie station 88.5 WXPN, and live appearances on WRFF Radio 104.5.
Through their relentless efforts, the band has toured the entire United States, all the while cultivating a large, passionate fan base at home in the Northeast. They have also earned prominent opening slots for bands such as White Reaper, Sticky Fingers, July Talk, The Menzingers, Off With Their Heads, and Curls among others.
In the fall of 2019 the band returned to Gradwell House to record their six song EP Stardust Disco. After its release in February of 2020, the band toured throughout the Northeast and Midwest before being halted by the pandemic. After months of isolation, the band returned to the studio to record a live album called ‘Live From Lockdown’ released for free at the end of 2020. Following the album, the band continued to write and record new material which would become their upcoming EP “This Ain’t Art”, slated to be released March 12, 2022.
