Back in 1999 the music scene was vastly shifting. Throughout the nineties, rock bands ruled the arena, with the kings being: Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Weezer, Metallica, and Red Hot Chili Peppers. However in 1999, Britney Spears, N. Sync, Backstreet Boys, as well as other pop acts owned the charts, even giving Cher another comeback. The combination of the past's rock movement and the mobilization of the pop takeover created a blend of pop-rock music that was yet to be tapped into properly. This set the stage for an indie band named Pomeroy from Kansas City, Missouri to create a new, fresh sound, and take over the Midwest for almost a decade.
Pomeroy released the song "Robo Flow" from their first album Inside the Shine in the spring of 1999. It caught on like wildfire and was heard all over Midwest radio. Fans flocked to see the band, and they were consistently selling out shows, and packing venues. Pomeroy showed their dedication from the beginning, determined to give their fans a spectacular live show with great music. Their touring circle began to grow, as the buzz around them flourished.
On October 9, 2007 Pomeroy will release their new album, "A New Reflection". Now, as the album's title clearly portrays, almost ten years since their beginning-- Pomeroy is emerging as a band that is more skilled than ever, having shaped and refined their craft to perfection. Pomeroy shares, "This album has become much more than just 11 songs on a CD. It has become the battle cry behind this bands evolution. It is the axis around which Pomeroy now spins and has ultimately led to our creative rebirth. It is fresh, it's different, and it's the best collective work of art we have ever produced. Layered with guitars, big drums, deep pockets, and beautiful melodies, "A New Reflection" is bound to make an impact in the music industry.
Pomeroy is setting off their album launch with an intensive 30-city tour starting October 12, 2007. The band says, "Our live show has always been our home run ball. Now it will be our record. We're in a very different situation because we have to scale up our live show to match the intensity of our new album. Expect a live show like you've never seen before. It's going to be in your face - quite moving."
As veterans of the stage, Pomeroy has been enlightened by their longevity in the music industry and inspired to emerge with a sound that is unmatched by any band today. They have their finger on the pulse of the indie scene, and they have created a musical point of view with no boundaries and unparalleled energy. Good bands change with the times. Great bands change the times. This is Pomeroy.
