EP: Some of Mine | The New Relics


Writing and Performing Honest Music Since 2001

The New Relics have written and recorded over 60 songs since 2001. Their catalog crosses genres from Jam-Band to Singer-Songwriter, Rock, Country and Americana, pushing the boundaries of genre while fueling their passion of creating emotionally resonant stories and weaving them them into well-constructed musical arrangements. While touring the East Coast and sharing stages with groups like Zac Brown Band, Sawyer Brown, Craig Morgan, 311, Blessed Union of Souls, Gin Blossoms, The Alternate Routes, Wyclef and Pat McGee Band, The New Relics wrote and recorded 4 studio albums and 2 live albums. The band found commercial success in 2010 with the single release of “Beautiful,” charting as high as #54 on Billboard’s country music chart. Though many of The New Relics’ arrangements and instrumentation lean more toward frontman Michael J. Arbogast’s Texas Country idols like Pat Green and Randy Rogers Band, TNR found their voice by blending aspects of artists as varied as Amos Lee, Zac Brown, Train, Jason Isbell, John Mayer, Brad Paisley, Jason Mraz, and David Gray.


Kind Words

“This West Virginia band adds an infectious enthusiasm to it poppy brand of rock, and guitarists Jim Bidwell and Mike Arbogast adeptly throw in some joyous six-string sparks throughout the rocking “Shotgun” and the cheery “Beautiful.”

~Country Weekly Magazine
