The Southwest Florida-based band Exploding Pages performs live in studio ahead of the anticipated release of their brand-new album “Steady Midnight.”  The band’s sound could loosely be described as indie rock and alt-Americana, but their sound stays true to the original intent of the founding band members more than 15 years ago to create music with no limits on style or genre. 

We’ll speak with band members Mike Cosden (guitar & vocals), Marc Davis (percussion & vocals), Tommy Scott (bass), and Doug Smith (guitar) ahead their album release concert Feb 9 at Palace Pub & Wine Bar in Cape Coral.  We’ll also get an exclusive first listen to songs from the new album.
