Eager To Please

I knew that 'Eager To Please' was going to be a great album when I first heard the demos, but it wasn't until we got in the studio that I realized how amazing the songs really were

Channeling The Beatles and the Beach Boys with the power pop of Elvis Costello and The Romantics all while keeping the upbeat energy of the Ramones, The Leftovers hit the road in support of their Crappy Records release, Eager To Please. Portland Maine’s most ambitious post punk act, The Leftovers, will be playing a ton of dates this fall in support of their latest release Eager To Please. They’ll be supporting the legendary pop punk act, The Queers.

The Leftovers recent full length Eager To Please was produced by Linus Dotson (of Hollywood) and features Kim Shattuck of The Muffs, Brett Anderson of The Donnas, Parry Gripp from Nerf Herder, Coz Canler from the Romantics and Jon Rubin of the Rubinoos.

“I knew that ‘Eager To Please’ was going to be a great album when I first heard the demos, but it wasn't until we got in the studio that I realized how amazing the songs really were,” said Dotson. “Kurt Baker has a songwriting maturity that is way beyond his years and is able to channel classic artists like the Beach Boys, Elvis Costello and the Beatles, while still having a unique style all of his own. The Leftovers' live show is simply mindblowing and they have a fun and endearing charisma that has been lacking from rock'n'roll for a long time!”

The Leftovers formed in 2002 and road tested a sound over 350 dates and two continents that successfully combines the classic vibe of The Beatles and the Beach Boys with the power pop of Elvis Costello, The Romantics and the Rubinoos, while keeping the upbeat energy of the Ramones and The Queers. The Leftovers songwriting skills and powerful live show caught the attention of Crappy Records as well as pop punk cult icons Ben Weasel (of Screeching Weasel fame) and Larry Livermore (founder of Lookout Records). The Leftovers new label, Crappy Records, was formed by label executive Carl Caprioglio, producer Linus of Hollywood and Bowling for Soup frontman Jaret Reddick, with the new label distributed by the Fontana/Universal label Oglio Records.

“The Leftovers are a freakin’ breath of fresh air,” said Jaret Reddick. “They are fun, fascinating and rockin'! And most of all, chicks dig ‘em!”

The Leftovers are Kurt Baker (Bass/Vocals), Andrew Rice (Guitar/Vocals), Adam Woronoff (Drums) and Matt Anderson (Guitar).
