Brooklyn Outfit Junior Prom Releases Single "Sheila Put the Knife Down" Off Forthcoming Debut EP -- in Preparation for First East Coast Tour, Hitting CMJ Music Marathon

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 17, 2013) - Brooklyn-based music duo Junior Prom, comprised of multi-talented musicians Mark Solomich and Erik Ratensperger -- who formed after grinding in rehearsal spaces and venue halls across New York -- has released a debut single, "Sheila Put The Knife Down," off their forthcoming EP slated for release on Elektra Records.

Junior Prom takes their jams on the road this week, which kicked off on October 10 at DBGB's in Buffalo, NY, followed by a string of CMJ Music Marathon dates this week including showcases partnered with the Noise Collective NY and NickyDigital.com. Tickets are on sale here, and CMJ RSVP links, plus full itinerary enclosed below.

"...has the 'Ooohs' of Ratensperger's previous project and the thumping bass line of Solomich[']s. It's the perfect marriage of keyboard, guitars and a pop chorus with a four letter word to keep it dirty." - NYLON

"...an all-around good time... will make you want to dance, but the good kind of dancing where you point and shimmy and do paddle turns with your head turned towards the heavens as opposed to twerking or dropping it like it's hot" - Kick Kick Snare.
