Which brings us to…

We are extremely bummed to announce that Andy will be leaving Big Hurry and the 10/21 show will be his last with the band. 
We’ll miss him like crazy.  So, if you’ve ever wanted to hug, high-five, swoon over, or just talk about your feelings… This is your moment. 

Seriously, help us give Andy the best rock-n-roll goodbye, ever.

Pittsburgh City Paper MP3 Monday: Big Hurry

We were featured in the Pittsburgh City Paper’s MP3 Monday.  Download our song, “Gets Me Low” for free.

MP3 Monday: Big Hurry


BY ANDY MULKERIN



I was scrambling on deadline for an MP3 to post today because a couple of prospects fell through temporarily — you might say I was in a … rush. Then the always-reliable Big Hurry came through with a single I played on WYEP a few weeks back. It’s a fun little joint that builts a lot of tension then releases it into a danceable fun frenzy. It’s the title track from the band’s new EP (issued a fwe weeks ago) and it’s here and free: Download “Gets Me Low,” by Big Hurry!

Stream new songs! EP Review!

The kind folks at Draw Us Lines had some very nice things to say about our new EP:

Big Hurry have been working hard and recording new material for a long time now. They’ve been playing their brains out in Pittsburgh, New York, West Virginia and more. Their last release was Silver Screens back in late 2009 and it’s been a favorite of mine since I first heard it. Talk about anticipation right? I’ll be honest – I had pretty high hopes for this band and this new EP…”

While you’re over there, be sure to hang around and explore some sweet features. 

We especially recommend the Echo Chamber videos.

“…swagger with a diamond sharp edge”
Here’s a nice feature on us from the folks at Draw Us Lines
Big Hurry w/ Triggers, Mount Peru, and DJ Gordy / Brillobox / Friday January 28th / 10 PM / $7
Words by Patrick Bowman
“Big Hurry’s  music has swagger with a diamond sharp edge, grounded in just the  slightest hint of vulnerability that allows their sound to coalesce and  harden. To do that in Pittsburgh, amidst the scores of sometimes too  precious indie pop and alt-country groups, causes one to sit up and take  notice.
It’s now early 2011 and the band is back with their second EP Gets Me Low,  prepared for release at their Brillobox show this Friday. I don’t want  to ruin that EP’s surprise by doing something as dumb as talking about  it for another 200 words (and also because I’ve already revealed too  many of their secrets), but I will say that 2011 is poised to be a big  year for Big Hurry, so you better start paying attention. Don’t. Miss. This. Show.”
