Create The Tins New Logo

By Will Oliver, April 13th 2014

The Tins

The Tins have some big things on the way this year. But first, they need your help in creating their new official band log. That’s right, you can design the band’s logo.

For the next two weeks (April 11-April 25) you can submit an original logo design for The Tins that they will use as their official look. To submit, you can post it to their facebook page, twitter page, or any other social media outlet.

They will choose the best one and will give the winner a very special prize package, and you will have the the honor of having your logo live on in the rock and roll history books forever.

Here are the suggestions from the band, taken straight from the official entry page:

Think outside the box, and be as creative as possible. Nothing is off limits!

We are looking for something unusual yet exciting! Surprises are welcome!

And that’s everything! Very simple, but the potential is infinite. Let the right side of your brain take over, and unleash creative fury the likes of which the world has never seen!

Good Luck!

So there you have it. What are you waiting for? Get to it. And enjoy some “Whiteout” below.

The Tins – Please Be Kind

By Will Oliver, September 19th 2012

My fellow Binghamton alumni The Tins released a great album titled Life’s A Gas this year. “Please Be Kind” is a funky good jam from the album that really showcases just how far the band has come since I first posted them. The harmonies mesh just so well with their cohesive sound.

It got a big premiere from Paste, which is a huge deal for these guys. Another big step towards big things. The album comes out October 2, and they will be in town for CMJ this October. Stay tuned for those dates.

Take a listen to “Please Be Kind” below.

The Tins are set to release their debut album Life’s A Gas on July 2. They collaborated with producer Joe Blaney and used a grassroots Kickstarter campaign to help finance the album. To celebrate the release, the band has released their first music video for the album’s single, “Vicki”.

See what happens when the band makes moves on Vicki, who is being watched carefully by a creepy dude. It’s a fun watch, full of help from their friends from their hometown of Buffalo, New York.

The last we heard from The Tins, they were raising money via kickstarter for their debut album. We now have our first taste of the said debut album, in the form of lead single “Vicki”.

The Buffalo band, who got together here at Binghamton University, have spent the last year writing and recording the album with producer Joe Blaney, who has worked with the likes of Modest Mouse, The Clas, and Prince. The band has nearly completed work on the album, and are preparing to set out to SXSW to show off the new songs to the Austin, Texas hungry.

The Tins Need Your Help

By Will Oliver, August 10th 2011

The Tins have a kickstarter going which will help them properly record their debut LP. I’m a big fan of the guys as you should know by now, and I hope you guys share the same sentiments. I already wrote about the kickstarter, but I wanted to do one more post since they are so close, yet still have a little to go.

They have 30 days to go, and $2,844 of the $8,000 has been raised. If everyone chipped in even just a few dollars, they would be well on their way. I know times are hard for everyone, but if you have anything to spare, I’m sure the band could use the help.

The band have allowed me to stream the demo of “Taking Liberties”, a song that would appear on this LP:

Help The Tins Fund Their Debut Album

By Will Oliver, July 15th 2011

The Tins are hard at work on their debut album, but they a little help. They’ve put up a kickstarter page where fans like you and I can donate as much, or as little money as we want in order to help the band record the music properly. If you pledge to donate a certain amount of money, you can get a reward such as a signed CD or a thank you in the linear notes. The band is hoping to raise $8K in order to pay for studio time, production costs, and mastering costs. The project will only be funded if at least $8,000 is pledged by Friday Sep 9, 10:08pm. So we gotta get moving, folks.

The band is working with producer Joe Blaney who has worked with amazing artists such as the Clash, Modest Mouse, and Prince. The band has recorded four songs so far (which are all fantastic, trust me). Two of these songs, “White Out” and “Taking Liberties” are available to stream on The Tins’ facebook page. You can also check out a live version of another new jam called “Spies” here. stream “White Out” below. It’s quite the tune:

If you’re digging what you hear, and can spare some $, please help these guys out. They’ve got the talent, and with a little bit of help they can make the great debut album that they were meant to make. I just donated myself. What are you waiting for? Head to their kickstarter page and help support good music.

[video] The Tins – Spies (Live at Brighton Music Hall)

By Will Oliver, July 12th 2011 — with 1 comment

The Tins will soon be making their return to the musical world, and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve had the pleasure of hearing some demos of new songs – and they’re sounding incredible. One of the new songs is the very memorable “Spies” which I haven’t been able to shake since my first listen.

The Buffalo, New York natives should be ones on your radar after “The Green Room”. If you don’t know who they are, then get to know them. Here’s a fantastic live performance of the new song that the band played at Boston’s Brighton Music Hall while opening for The Blow:
