FFO: The Wonder Years, Tigers Jaw, The Menzingers, The Story So Far
“‘Seaglass and Springsteen’ evokes the wistful spirit of summer love—from the first passionate kiss to the woeful goodbye. Despite being stuck in a daydream, the dwindling summer heat quickly snaps our characters back to reality, as they are left to hopelessly face summer’s end. ‘Seaglass and Springsteen’ is a summer anthem that will fill your heart with nostalgia, leaving you desperately wondering about what could have been.- The Maguas
The Maguas are a Scranton favorite – this NEPA native 5-piece anthem emo rock band, consisting of Erik Miller (Vocals), Matthew Jenkins (Lead Guitar), Daulton Rissinger (Rhythm Guitar), Luke Prusinski (Bass), and Brandon Ossont (Drums), found its roots in the Electric City and hit the ground running ever since its inception in 2018.
Following in the footsteps of anthemic emo rockers of the early 2000’s such as Jimmy Eat World, Bayside, and My Chemical Romance, The Maguas embrace a blend of alternative rock and power-pop-punk that tugs at your heartstrings. With their emo-punk songwriting, melodic, moody, lyrically-driven anthems, and theatrical vocals, The Maguas have created a breathtaking emo sound that comes across as novel and invigorating, yet profoundly nostalgic, and wistful.
Succeeding the release of their self-produced debut EP “Good Beer.”, The Maguas joined forces with producer Nik Bruzzese (Man Overboard / Casa Loma) at Lumberyard Recording to create their second EP ‘One Of Us Is Lying’ in January of 2020.
