We are the In Crowd have Best Intentions at the Nutty Irishman

Named after a children’s book, We Are the In Crowd are ready for the Noise Tour with Mayday Parade on Thursday night at the Nutty Irishman. (This show was originally scheduled for the, now closed, Crazy Donkey in Farmingdale)

The Poughkeepsie-based quintet recently released their first LP, “Best Intentions,” on which you’ll hear dual vocalists—Tay Jardine and guitarist Jordan Eckes—expressing different opinions on each song.

“The lyrics were all inspired by things we had gone through in the last year,” notes Jardine. “”We’re close friends and talk about everything together, so it was easy to relate to the situation even if it didn’t directly happen to one of us.”

With the exception of a few songs, which were co-written with producers Kenneth Mount and Zach Odom (All Time Low, Mayday Parade), composing was a group effort for Jardine, Eckes, bassist Mike Ferri, drummer Rob Chianelli, and guitarist Cameron Hurley.

“We do things this way because we like to have everyone’s input,” says Jardine. “Sometimes the process takes longer with more people involved but in the end, we’re all happy.”

Influenced by bands like New Found Glory, Jimmy Eat World, and the Starting Line, whom they were lucky enough to tour with in the summer, the pop-rockers will be playing songs off “Best Intentions” (which was one of Alternative Press’s most anticipated fall releases) when they hit the stage of the Nutty Irishman on Thursday, October 13th.

We Are in the Crowd will perform right before Mayday Parade, with The Make, You Me at Six, and There For Tomorrow opening.
