Frightful Places is an alternative, emo passion concept that was developed over the course of eight years in bedrooms, cafes & hiking trails across Connecticut, by songwriter and guitarist Kevin Tiernan.
“Frightful Places is an extremely accomplished and unerringly likeable debut from Tiernan.” – New Noise Magazine
Crafted during the pandemic and brought to life on debut single, “Old Frame”, Tiernan strives to do something that feels new and uncomfortable with the new iteration. Taking himself to “frightful places” in order to achieve a sonic identity that explores intricate guitar work and heart-on-sleeve lyricism, debut album ‘Frightful Places’is expressive and immersive, nodding to the emo revival, whilst sparking elements of the melodic punk present on Tiernan’s former project Moving Brooklyn.
“A charming listen for anyone with even slightest interest in modern American emo…certainly one of the most promising bands to emerge as of late from the scene…” – Noizze
Recorded with Chris Teti (The World Is A Beautiful Place…) at Silver Bullet Studios, the dazzling debut nods to the likes of Turnover, Citizen and Title Fight, showcasing a moving but delightful accessible display of modern emo.
