HITS Offering Download of "Madness"

HITS (formerly Jump into the Gospel) are a New York City band to the core - both gritty and sleek, confident yet volatile, and a touch of vulnerability that's never quite healed from past heartbreak. Oh yes, that's why we like 'em. You will too. They are offering free music to entice you to their lair, too!
With undeniably catchy melodies, anthemic choruses, and playful lyrical wit, singer/guitarist Louis Epstein, guitarist Ben Vescovi, keyboardist Erik Tonnesen (live member of Holy Ghost), bassist Lakis Pavlou, and drummer Chris Stein (former member of The Drums) have positioned themselves to be not only a staple in the NYC club scene but also a top band to watch this year.
They will release their self-titled EP on June 26.
The songs form a throwback '80s electro-synth sound with a contemporary feel only the year 2012 could allow. The new EP, produced and mixed with a little help from their friends, Cobra Starship, swings from high energy dance songs like "Veins" and "St. John" to the thoughtful musings on isolation in "Twin Peaks" and the skewed vision of love in "Madness."
