You Will Know: 7-inch Single and East Coast Tour

“You Will Know” Limited Edition 7-inch vinyl

Ladies and gentlemen, we’re very happy to announce the release of Aloud’s new single, “You Will Know” backed with the b-side “Such A Long Time”.

“You Will Know” will be available exclusively on limited edition 7-inch vinyl. The single doesn’t hit the streets till Tuesday, September 4 but you can pre-order a copy now in the Aloud store for only $5.99 (plus shipping).

Each sleeve has been hand-numbered, with the first 50 having been painted by the band. This marks Aloud’s first vinyl release.

“You Will Know” was recorded late last year for Berklee PULSE’s BANDED documentary, which followed Aloud and five other bands throughout the process of writing and recording a song.

Both “You Will Know” and its b-side “Such A Long Time” were recorded at Mad Oak Studio in Allston, Mass. by producer Benny Grotto. The single also features Mike Tucker (The Big Big Bucks, Bozmo) on drums, Will Belew on trumpet, and Matt Wan on trombone.

I Can’t Believe That Worked: Aloud celebrates 10 years at Great Scott

It’s so comically familiar, it must be the opening line of an old joke: a couple of wide-eyed 19-year-old kids, who believe a bad idea should never stop you, start a rock band. But here we are, a decade and several foolish ideas later, and Boston-area rock n’ roll band Aloud shows no signs of slowing down. Fresh off an appearance at Austin’s SXSW Music Festival, Aloud celebrates 10 years of beating the odds with a performance at venerated Allston venue Great Scott on Thursday, April 26.

Helmed by longtime songwriting partners/co-lead vocalists Henry Beguiristain and Jen de la Osa, the four piece rock n’ roll band is buttressed by bassist/backup dancer Charles Murphy and drummer Justin Emile Shapiro. Launched from a small one-bedroom republic in the Fenway in May of 2002, Aloud has gone on to record three studio albums – with a fourth in the oven – and crisscross the country on several independent tours.

Aloud’s most recent release – the critically acclaimed full length Exile – and the subsequent 17-week U.S. tour behind it were underwritten in large part through a successful campaign on the fan-funding platform Kickstarter.

Sharing the bill at Great Scott with Aloud is Spirit Kid, The Wicked Tomorrow (on tour from NYC), and Oranjuly. Doors open at 8:30pm.

Tickets for the 18+ show are $8 and available through TicketWeb.

Limited edition screen print posters designed by Erin Genett will be available at the show. A retrospective short film on the band by director Stephen LoVerme will be released this summer, with a trailer to be released soon.

New single out this November

Without a doubt, it’s been a long and restless summer. After months touring the U.S., Aloud took a bit of a breather to regroup, write some new tunes, and enjoy being home for a spell.

Now that’s all behind us, we’re pleased as Punch to announce Aloud’s new single “The Cash and the Pearls” will be out this November on Lemon Merchant Records. The digital-only single will be coupled with the exclusive b-side track “So Long” and features artwork by Erin Genett.

Videos posted + a new storefront

Our video area: now with 100% more music videos, the 2008 documentary Hard Up In The 2000s, and Vitamin D.

Hello all! Two sections of our site are now open for business, both figuratively and literally.


Vids have been posted on the video page. We’ve thrown the latest music videos at the top of the heap. However, most notably we’ve posted our 2008 film Hard Up In The 2000s in its entirety and in higher quality (it had only been previously available in 10 parts). The feature length documentary catches Aloud in the midst of their first real touring adventure through the South, Midwest, and back home in the Northeast. The film also features live performances from the first leg of the Fan The Fury tour (March – April 2008) and interviews with the band during and after the successful tour.
