  1. Listen Stereo Confession perform on The Local Show

    Sep 7, 2014

On a special back-to-school edition of The Local Show, Minneapolis rock band Stereo Confession stop into The Current's studio to play some songs and to talk to host David Campbell.

A version of Stereo Confession has existed for three years — a very long time considering most of the band members are 17 years old. Stereo Confession's most recent single, "Video Games," has enjoyed a lot of airplay on The Current, and the band have a new album, No Coast, scheduled for release on Oct. 14, with an album-release party set for Sunday, Oct. 12, at the 7th Street Entry. It's an all-ages show, of course.

Listen to the full interview to hear Stereo Confession describe the secret to their longevity as a band; what inspires them in the landlocked Midwest to write surf-rock songs; how they came to cover a not-nameable-for-broadcast Replacements' tune; and the grade they'd give themselves on this, their first radio interview.

Stereo Confession also talk about how the school year has gone so far, and they reveal their post-graduation plans.

Songs Performed

"Hang Ten"
"Getting Out"
All songs from Stereo Confession's forthcoming album, No Coast, scheduled for release on Oct. 14, 2014.

  • Friday Five: March 21, 2014 Speaking of Howler and their garage rock-loving friends, this new song from Stereo Confession sounds like it would fit nicely on a mixtape alongside the Rough Trade phenoms and Forged Artifacts bands like France Camp, Nice Purse, and Prissy Clerks. The kids are alright...
