Review for Backup Planet:

Backup Planet, the Nashville-based quartet who write arena-size anthems echoing with progressive intricacy, funk swagger, and even a little metallic edge released their sophomore full-length album, Reactions, on March 31. In support of the album, Backup Planet will hit the road with fellow American rock band The Heavy Pets for a 21-date co-headline tour dubbed “The Heavy Planet Tour” that will be stopping locally at the Revelry Room.  

The 10-track Reactions album was recorded at Syncromesh Studios in Birmingham with producer Jason Elgin [Collective Soul, Maylene and The Sons of Disaster] and showcases the band’s top-shelf musicianship and songwriting, which is spotlighted in “Little Mingo,” “A Different Life” and another album standout, the haunting and heartfelt “Sublimation,” that conjures up a simmering stew of impressive fretwork, percussion, and towering vocals.  

Backup Planet--Ben Cooper [keys, vocals], Chris Potocik [drums, vocals], Gavin Donati [guitar, vocals], and Blake Gallant [bass, vocals]--released their full-length debut, Element, during 2015 and have shared the stage with the likes of The Revivalists, Papadosio, and more in addition to headlining countless packed shows.

Track listing for Reactions:
“Reactions”
“A Different Life”
“Bad Man”
“Dearth”
“Lookin’ Up”
“Little Mingo”
“Earth As A Dream”
“Sublimation”
“Waste High Jack”
“All In”
