Philadelphia electro-pop outfut W.C. Lindsay have announced their new single “Hang Tough,” premiering now via Alternative Press. This track is the second of three singles to be released this fall, following the 2014 release of Easy Victims, Charitable Deceptionsand in anticipation of new music in 2016. Combining elements of hip-hop and electro-pop with the high energy of the Philly punk scene, W.C. Lindsay have begun to make a name for themselves both in and outside of the punk scene. A quote from singer Will Lindsay on “Hang Tough” can be found below.
Stream “Hang Tough” now via Alternative Press.
“This is probably the most frustrated song we’ve ever put out. It’s a song about mixed signals and differences in night and day and drinking at a college party. I feel like with “Hang Tough” we’ve combined all the ideas represented on Easy Victim, Charitable Deceptions and smashed them together in one track.” – Will Lindsay

W.C. Lindsay, an electro-pop group born out of the Philadelphia punk scene, takes pride in their musical duality. Self describing the band’s sound as “The Beastie Boys watching The Breakfast Club at Warped Tour,” frontman William Charles Lindsay found a way to create an authentic identity out of a variety of influences. Raised on a scene of frontmen screaming their hearts out down in the crowd, Lindsay vowed to emulate this passion, no matter what style of music he was to create. “If someone cares enough to come see me, they’re going to get everything.”

The parameters were set forth, and so the music grew. Lindsay’s addition of live drums and bass to his performance pushed the punk live agenda, while his live sampling and lap steel guitar bring a hands-on aesthetic to the electronic sound. The W.C. Lindsay band has floored audiences in cities all over the country and brought it’s unique brand of electro-pop to audiences big and small, with major artists such as B.o.B., Major Lazer, J. Boog, and Twenty One Pilots.

In 2014, W.C. Lindsay released their debut full length Easy Victims, Charitable Deceptions via Big Footprints Records. The album showcased their unique sound and grew their fanbase locally and throughout the US. With each sale of Easy Victims, Charitable Deceptions Big Footprints also  gives a donation of $1.00 to Big Brothers, Big Sisters.

W.C. Lindsay’s first single cna be streamed now via PureVolume and downloaded viaWXPN’s The Key.
