Brooklyn-based rock quartet The Energy has been crafting its signature sound for over a decade, and the band has only gained momentum along the way. With a genuine fire and driving guitar riffs like no other, The Energy is channeling the true spirit of rock n’roll to electrify modern music. Since its announcement earlier this year, the band has created excitement with their upcoming studio album, When We Were Young, due out tomorrow April 23, 2016 with a special CD release show at Webster Hall (The Studio).

The band’s 5th studio album, When We Were Young combines poignant lyrics and edgy tunes to combat what they call an industry ‘over-saturated with fluff.’ The Energy believes it’s their responsibility to maintain a high standard of creativity, sonic integrity, and performance, and When We Were Young does that and more.

The song, “Free”, reminiscent of the 90’s rock feel, gives fans a unique look into the band. According to vocalist Adam Wolfsdorf, “‘Free’ tells a story for everyone- a story about finding expression and voice in a world that can limit exactly that. Free is about breaking through the should’s and should not’s – about arriving home.”
