Proudly wearing their influences on their sleeves, Leaving Springfield brings a sonic wall of big drums, loud guitars, and lyrics that are tormented, twisted, and usually with tongue planted firmly in cheek.
With three EP’s and two full-length CD’s released, (a third full-length CD will be release in Spring of 2014) in the short span of seven years, Matt Norcross (drums, keyboards, vocals) and Brent ‘BK’ Kessler (guitar, bass, vocals) have established themselves as a songwriting tour-de-force, and their live performances will leave you wondering how two people can make that much sound.
Their music is in rotation on Las Vegas radio station KOMP 92.3. They have also had their music played on “American Weeds” on NatGeo. Leaving Springfield was also featured on the PBS show “Vegas In Tune.” The bands song “Johnny Sunshine” appeared on the Smash Magazine compilation “Viva Rock Vegas” , they were one of 4 unsigned bands to appear on the CD that also contained songs by signed artists such as The Higher, Escape the Fate and The Cab.
