Pierce The Veil’s Vic Fuentes’ Newphew Launches New Band

Keyes signs with Tragic Hero Records, announces split 7″ release and tour  with fellow label mates Wearing Thin
Tragic Hero Records is proud to announce the addition of Keyes to their ever expanding roster. The band features Pierce The Veil’s Vic Fuentes‘ nephew, Kyle Allen, on vocals and guitar. Keyes caught the eye of label president Tommy LaCombe and the band couldn’t be more excited about the partnership. Allen said, “siding with Tommy, and the rest of Tragic Hero, was an obvious step in a forward direction for Keyes. He (Tommy) has treated us as friends from the beginning and we couldn’t be happier to work with someone that we’d proudly call our friend.”
In addition to the signing announcement, Keyes premiered their song “Sewing Circle” which will be featured on the split 7″ (out 4/15) with THR labelmates, Wearing Thin. Tylor Blackburn, the vocalist for WT, explains, “We’ve been friends with Keyes since Wearing Thin’s conception. This split has felt long overdue, and we’re excited both our bands get to grow together. Our side of songs carries off of our EP dealing with the feelings of letting go of toxic relationships.”
The album will be out on April 15th and is available for pre-order starting today. The two bands will be hitting the road in support of the record.
About Keyes:
Entrancing melodies and heartfelt lyrics are part of what makes the San Diego quartet, Keyes, stand apart. They pride themselves on staying true to themselves and playing music that is real, which comes across in every song they play.
       Hitting the scene with their first release in 2011, Kyle Allen (vocals/guitar), Ian Alvarez (guitar), and Danny T. Penwell (drums) have worked tirelessly to produce quality music and to add to their ever growing fan base. For their first EP “Therefore/Without” they enlisted Paul Parks and Michael Schlereth to record and mix/master. When it was time to follow up that EP, Casey Bates (A Skylit Drive, Memphis May Fire, Pierce The Veil) was brought in to mix/master “Wandermere” in 2014. After building a friendship with Bates, Keyes was ready to work with him again when they teamed up with Tragic Hero label mates Wearing Thin to record a split EP which will be out in 2016.
         Keyes was eager to hit the road after releasing their EP’s. They’ve toured the west coast with Matthew Fitzpatrick of My Iron Lung (Pure Noise Records) and have also toured the southwest with Captives (Ronald Records).
          In 2015, Keyes caught the eye of Tragic Hero President, Tommy LaCombe and both agreed working together would be a good fit.  Allen explains, “Aside from growing up and loving the Tragic Hero roster, we had heard nothing but good things from friends who had worked with Tommy. Tragic Hero sounds like and will hopefully be the beginning of great things to come for Keyes”.
Keyes split EP with Wearing Thin will be released in early 2016 and the band plans to announce new tour dates in support of their new music and will be the first time featuring their new bassist, Dominic Trujillo.
