About Robots and Racecars
Based out of Philadelphia, PA, Robots and Racecars isn’t your typical pop-punk band. While you get the typical pop-punk fast, loud and in-your-face sound, they strive to break away from the cookie-cutter mold that fans on the genre have come to accept. Lyrically, the members (Matthew Herb, Frankie Marsh, Nicholas Reed and Jordan Riffe) write about their nerd lifestyles which include video games, fantasies and zombies. Musically, they combine great melodies, harmonized vocals, tight solos, thumping bass and pounding drums. Mix both parts together and it\’s no surprise why they are quickly gaining a national audience, sponsorships and sharing the stage with the likes of The Ataris, Big D & The Kids Table and Hawthorne Heights (to name a few). One listen to Robots and Racecars and you’ll be hooked.
