Erie PA emo/indie rock trio The Standby are getting ready to debut a new single and music video this month.
“Constant Nausea” is the follow-up to the band’s previous track “Wintersun,” which was also produced by Gary Cioni (Grayscale, Free Throw, Kayak Jones) at the Barber Shop Studios. The video will be premiering on Dreambound’s Youtube channel in the UK and on Alternative Press’ Facebook page on July 9th, and will then be available to stream on all DSPs on July 12.
Both tracks serve as a preview of the band’s forthcoming EP which will be out in September.

The Standby is comprised of Jordan Sigmund (Vocals, Guitar), Jake Brown (Drums), and Lyle Sallade (Bass, Backing Vocals). The band has quickly become a dynamic presence in Pennsylvania and the surrounding areas, with the group’s debut release ‘Wintersun’ (produced by Gary Cioni) finding traction on Spotify playlists and it’s corresponding music video premiering on both Dreambound (YouTube, 282k subs) and Alternative Press.
In turn, this solidified the band’s ability to bring something new and fresh to an otherwise stagnant subgenre. The three-piece delivers a huge soundscape that is both highly energetic and tragically somber, creating a pallet that any alternative music fan can easily take from and enjoy.
The band fuses elements of some of the scene’s most cherished classics (Thrice, Thursday) with more modern stylings reminiscent of some of today’s newer powerhouses (Casey, Movements, Can’t Swim) to form a perfect storm of genre-bending.
This has made the Erie, Pennsylvania based emo-indie trio already a rising favorite, playing to over 100 attendees their first time at The Vanguard in Tulsa, Oklahoma and deemed “indie hometown heroes” by the Erie Reader.
Following the release of ‘Wintersun’, many newly-found fans have been left eagerly waiting for more.
