Gatefold vinyl, comes with a digital download card! At a time when the music world is saturated with more bands than ever, Philadelphia punk band RESTORATIONSare a refreshing change of pace: an act who undeniably embody the DIY spirit but also bring along a real breadth of musical knowledge and an unlikely set of influences that somehow manage to work perfectly together.

Drawing from a vast range of musical influences, "LP2" finds RESTORATIONS at their very best.

Expanding upon their diverse sound, the band introduces a more aggressive tone to the mix.

From the straight-ahead onslaught of "Kind Of Comfort" to the folk-infused "The Plan" and rhythm-heavy opening track "D," the result is a refreshingly honest collection, capturing the raw, frenetic energy of the band's live performance.

"LP2" is a unique blend of indie rock, punk rock and focused psychedelia that can only come from spending a decade honing their skills organically.

After producing their music largely on their own the band linked up with close friend Jon Low (Local Natives, Twin Sister, Kurt Vile) at Philadelphia's Miner Street Studios to create an album that captures the unbridled energy, sonic grandeur, and sheer volume of the band's live performances.

RESTORATIONS first appeared on tastemaker's radars with their 2010 four-song EP "Strange Behavior" and made a lasting impression with their 2011 self-titled full-length debut.

RESTORATIONS is: Carlin Brown (drums) Dave Klyman (guitar/vocals) Jon Loudon (vocals/guitar) Ben Pierce (keys/guitar/vocals) Dan Zimmerman (bass) "There are many out there proclaiming RESTORATIONS to be the best band that exists today [...] and it's become pretty hard to argue with them." - AMP Magazine "RESTORATIONS is the kind of band that makes music that sounds like life is worth living." - This Is Book's Music "RESTORATIONS are surely on the cusp of something special." - Beard Rock
