Already a veteran of the NYC hardcore scene by the time he was a teenager, Jesse Malin first rose to fame with the influential punk band D Generation, a group Rolling Stone called "the best thing to happen to New York noise in the Nineties." Malin traded in his electric for an acoustic in 2002, though, shedding his skin and embarking on an acclaimed solo career with his Ryan Adams-produced debut, ‘The Fine Art of Self Destruction.’ Hailed by Uncut as “an instant classic,” the record was stripped-down, raw, and intimate, earning comparisons to Neil Young and Tom Waits for its ragged, poetic beauty. In the decade-and-a-half that followed, Malin would go on to blur the lines between singer-songwriter and punk rocker with a string of similarly celebrated solo albums, including his most recent back-to-back releases, ‘Outsiders’ and ‘New York Before The War.’ Malin has recorded with Bruce Springsteen and Green Day, performed on The Tonight Show, Conan, and Letterman, and shared stages with everyone from The Replacements and The Hold Steady to Bob Weir and The Gaslight Anthem. A prolific writer and relentless road warrior, he continues to circle the globe with his band and is currently completing work on his seventh studio album, a collaboration with American roots icon Lucinda Williams.

This fall, Brooklyn's FEVER HIGH will release their long-awaited full-length album, FHNY, which expands further on the danceable, retro-tinged sound that the Guardian described as "iridescent and infectious". The duo - singer/multi-instrumentalists Reni Lane and Anna Nordeen - made their debut with last year's acclaimed "All Work" EP, of which Nerdist said, "if it doesn't make you flex your butt cheeks and swing your hips wildly from side to side, then you should probably consult a physician."
FHNY continues the band's collaboration with Adam Schlesinger (Fountains Of Wayne, Ivy) who also produced the "All Work" EP. Reni says, "After releasing All Work, we entered a new stage where we really honed our sound, lyrics, and mood...the new batch of songs takes everything to the next level." Adds Anna, "We want to sing about things we really feel and have fun at the same time."
New songs like “Spy” and “These Boys” find FEVER HIGH exploring new rhythmic territory while maintaining their flair for melodic hooks and lyrical playfulness. FHNY also includes a few surprises, including a guest appearance by actor Jeff Goldblum on the propulsive "Good Advice." Reni explains, “I knew Jeff through our mutual friend Vincent D’Onofrio. We bonded over our mutual love of jazz piano and stayed in touch. When we sent him ‘Good Advice’ and asked him to improvise something, to my delight he sent us an eight minute rant of hilarious anecdotes about bad advice he’d been given in his career.”
After releasing the "All Work" EP, FEVER HIGH began to play live, with Adam and drummer Brad Wentworth joining Anna and Reni onstage for a run of club shows, as well as a string of dates supporting synthpop pioneers Book Of Love. They found radio support from influential stations like Los Angeles' KCRW and Austin's KUTX, and their songs showed up in numerous films and TV shows, including the CW comedy "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”, Netflix’s “To The Bone”, and three songs in the 2017 film Fun Mom Dinner. FEVER HIGH will tour in support of FHNY starting this fall.

The band released a single on Velvet Elk Records titled "Motorcycle" (produced by Steve Wynn of the Dream Syndicate) that was "Coolest Song in the World" on Little Steven's Underground Garage channel on Sirius Satellite Radio and received 12 weeks of heavy airplay. Her duo project with guitarist Alfonso Velez toured the UK as support for Jesse Malin and Don Dilego and the Touristas. Diane and the Gentle Men have opened for Richard Lloyd (Television), LAMF, Alejandro Escovedo, Hollis Brown, Steve Wynn, Tommy Stinson, Palmyra Delran (The Friggs), and played on bills with a host of other great bands like Lulu Lewis and Steve Conte. Diane has guest appeared with Tommy Stinson at the Bell House in Brooklyn, NY, at City Winery in NYC for 2 sold out nights for the T-Rex Tribute show and at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC for The Positive Panther Benefit with Jesse Malin. The band performed in Tompkins Square Park in NYC for Howl Festival.

"Diane Gentile is a sort of younger New York counterpart to the Motel's Martha Davis. She pus her own individualistic spin on the dark side of propulsive '80's new wave, and her band is killer." (New York Music Daily, May 2016).

The video of "Motorcycle" debuted on PancakesandWhiskey.com.
