Peter 118 returns again with an anthology of all previously released tracks on one album and a bonus album of live tracks performed at Harry’s House of Rebellion in LA.

Peter 118 started out as a solo project by Peter Szczepanski (Field), formerly of Senseless and Ambassadors of Shalom and featured Peter’s wife Janine on bass and friend Sam on drums. In 2014, the catchy “Radio” was released, followed by “Make it or Break it” in 2015. In 2016 the band’s Need You More ep caught the ear of legendary KROQ DJ Rodney Bingenheimer and band’s video started seeding mainstream airplay.  Alisha Palmer was added on rhythm guitar and the band has played  the Rainbow Rock Festival in Stockholm.

For the Anthology, all you need to know is that the album is filled with catchy pop punk songs with the kind of hooks that get stuck in your head and keep replaying in your head throughout the day but in a way that doesn’t make you immediately search for something else to drown it out.  Continue reading »

Thumper Punk Records and In Presence Records (UK) bring together punk rock bands Peter 118 and No Lost Cause for an ep filled with catchy hooks, driving punk rhythms and even some praise.

Peter 118 started out as a solo project by Peter Field, formerly of Senseless and Ambassadors of Shalom and featured Peter’s wife Janine on bass and friend Sam on drums. In 2016 the band’s Need You More ep caught the ear of legendary KROQ DJ Rodney Bingenheimer and band’s video started seeding mainstream airplay.  Alisha Palmer was added on rhythm guitar and the band has lined up some tour dates for late 2017 including the Rainbow Rock Festival in Stockholm.  Last year, Peter 118 shared the stage with the band No Lost Cause in Nashville and the band members hit it off so well, they decided to release a split ep…and you have In Stereo.

The ep kicks off with Peter 118 taking control and immediately you get that punk rock vibe with a guitar being plugged in right before the opening riff in “Seven” .  Guitar-driven punk rock is the story here and lyrically, the band’s Christian beliefs come through loud and clear.  Nice, melodic punk rock track if it does run a bit too long.

need_you_more_ep_eabPeter 118 returns again with another short blast of pop punk goodness in Need You More, an ep filled with what is now trademark catchy hooks and choruses with a bit of edginess thrown in from time to time.

After becoming a Christian, Peter Field dedicated his life to sharing the gospel through the punk community and as a result, started the band Ambassadors of Shalom who signed to Thumper Punk Records in 2012.  In 2014, he began focusing on his solo project, Peter 118 and released the very catchy “Radio” followed by “Make it or Break it” in 2015.  Now adding Janine Read and Sam Critchley, he has a supporting cast to back him up.

Need You More is basically a short ep with 4 new songs from Peter 118 that showcases the punk and pop sensibilities of Peter Field (Ambassadors of Shalom).  The title track is represented in two forms, a very poppy punk version and then a more electronic, more traditional pop version, both of which feature some great guest vocals by Lisa Cox, who throws a bit of a Susanna Hoffs (Bangles) vibe.  Lyrically, the song is about finding focus on God and not in the things of the world which quickly fade away and manages to be quite catchy.
