Family Of The Year Reveal Album Details - 'Loma Vista' (July 10) & Shares "Diversity" Single and Tour Video; Performance At Silverlake Jubilee
“We ♥ ♥ ♥ Family of the Year!” - Nylon
"If there's an off-center California pop sound for the here and now, this is probably what it sounds like." – LA Weekly
“The Mamas and The Papas on acid.” – Steven Tyler (Aerosmith)
Nettwerk recording artist, Family Of The Year, announce details of their much-anticipated studio album, Loma Vista. Set for release July 10, the full-length follows the critical success of last year’s St. Croix EP; heralded by NPR as “ebullient, full of stylistic left turns” and “intense and atmospheric” by Rolling Stone.
Family Of The Year—Joe (vocals, guitar), Sebastian (drums, vocals), James Buckey (guitar, vocals), and Christina Schroeter (keyboards, vocals) - completed 14 songs with producer Wally Gagel, one-half of production/songwriting team, WAX LTD and who’s credits include Rolling Stones, Muse, New Order, PJ Harvey, Sebadoh, Eels, Rihanna and more. A few tracks were set aside for St Croix, the remaining make up Loma Vista. This is the first time that the band has worked with a producer and gone outside their own camp to release their music.
To celebrate the forthcoming release, FOTY reveals “Diversity” and partnered with Nylon Magazine to share a 4-minute tour clip pieced together from their recent North American jaunt with Good Old War and Belle Brigade. A band with remarkable performance presence, the video aptly captures life on the road with a band that started out “cohabitating” in a run-down house and relying on each other for inspiration and support.

“When we were recording, we were all living together in a small one-bedroom apartment in Silver Lake on a street called Loma Vista,” says Christina regarding the album title. “We were around each other pretty much 100% of the time, whether it was at the studio, the practice space, the bars, or the apartment. We lived in our own little world for a while, and other than making music and having fun, nothing else really mattered.”
Formed in 2009, the band has accomplished a healthy dose of success in such a short amount of time. The members have formed unbreakable bonds that are undeniable in their infectious live performances and prolific songwriting. The band has already played sold-out shows in England and across Europe, including a triumphant set at France’s largest music festival Les Vieilles Charrues, and garnered additional support stints with Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Mumford & Sons, Grouplove, and Milo Greene. Early supporters have included NPR, Guardian UK, NME, CMJ and the BBC to name a few.
Over Memorial Day weekend, Family Of The Year are set to perform at this year’s Silverlake Jubilee, alongside Kinky, Aloe Blacc, Autolux, Le Sera and more. Stay tuned for information re Loma Vista and additional tour dates.
