Hidden In Plain View Release New EP ‘Tantrums’; Playing Furnace Fest This Fall


Hidden In Plain View has released its long-awaited EP ‘Tantrums.’ on Mt. Crushmore Records.

‘Tantrums’ is a collection of songs written across several years ranging from fast-paced punk and post-melodic hardcore-driven songs to heavy rock alternative tracks.

With this new music, the band pushes themselves to go beyond their comfort zone by exploring new time signatures and song structures with songs tackling depression, addiction, and life’s internal struggles. Each song is produced, mixed, and mastered by the band’s own Rob Freeman at Audio Pilot Studio in Sparta, NJ.

Hidden In Plain View is forever known for its dynamic style of pop-punk/emo and alternative post-hardcore sound. The band is a stand out among others with the vocal trade-offs and harmonies between Joe Reo and Rob Freeman. Their sound, lyrics, live show, and their entire image is downright genuine and energising.

Frontman Joe Reo says ““Tantrums” is a collection of songs written across several years showcasing Hidden In Plain View’s signature sound of trading vocals, harmonies, ripping drums, and authentic relatable lyrics.

“Tantrums comes as new life is breathed into the band with new member additions as well. It is the first release in which we went fully independent, recording and promoting our music without the outside influence of music industry labels or A & R.

Along with new music, merch, and vinyl Hidden In Plain View has collaborated with Seaside Heights, New Jersey brewery Heavy Reel Brewing to commemorate their classic Drive Thru Records LP “Life in Dreaming” with “Life in Dreaming IPA” a West Coast IPA featuring Mandorina Bavaria and Zappa hops! A recipe developed by the band’s own singer/brewer/math teacher Joe Reo.
