Topshelf Records Releasing Sirs’ First LP in July

Sirs, a four-piece punk band from upstate New York will release their first LP in July via Topshelf Records. The LP is the follow up to the band’s 2011 split release with the UK’s run, WALK! (which can be heard here:

Formed in 2009 after meeting at school, the original members consisted of Justin Jurgens, Dave Benton, Kyle Seely and Hart Seely. The band released a six-song EP Vas Deferens in May of 2010. After a summer tour, Dave left the band and was soon succeeded by Mike Caridi. They then released a split 7” in December 2010 with Chalk Talk and their first Topshelf release in 2011 with run, WALK! (Holy Roar Records). Sirs’ primary musical influences include The Band, Anti-Nowhere League and Electric Light Orchestra.

What others have said about SIRS:

“The six pogoing songs that fill Vas Deferens, the debut EP from Sirs, pop and explode. Sirs simply crank their amps to 11 and make nearly every second a high-velocity affair. Even during the moments when things seem quiet, it’s just the eye of the storm, and their bouncy, angular aural onslaught fits their voice just fine.”- Washington City Paper

“When a group list their influences as The Band, Anti-Nowhere League and Electric Light Orchestra you know you’re either in for something special or they’re really taking the piss. Fortunately Sirs fall into the first category, bringing an assault of dissonant chords and unbridled passion.”- Dawn of the Deaf

“Sirs are a revelation.”- Sonic Shocks
