Central NJ based new-age emo band, RODERIK make their debut to eager Baltimore, MD audiences who resonate with the band’s post-hardcore influences such as Point North, Taking Back Sunday, and Pierce the Veil.
Baltimore has often been a hub for expressly these kinds of rock vibes, and is often the first stop for many bands neighboring the DMV music scene’s most northern state.
They return on September 8, this time to Zen West alongside Morning in May of Ohio, as well as local Maryland rockers Come Out Swinging, Last Second Save, and Unity for the Outcasts from Washington D.C.
“We’re incredibly excited to be heading to such a prominent and thriving music scene that is the Baltimore area. While we’re newcomers to the city, we’re looking forward to having a great couple of shows here and we can’t wait to continue to come back again and again!” – Roderik
The band has released a number of singles since RODERIK launched in 2020, initially connecting remotely during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Their last single, “Desperate Measures,” released in 2022, is an immediate and satisfying introduction to what attendees can expect to hear live. The track, recorded at Fall of the House Productions with fellow bandmate Jake Salazar at the engineering helm, reveals incredible attention to detail and dynamics that come from true audiophiles and fans of the genre.
“Desperate Measures” is available now on major streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music.

Join Alchemical Records as they connect with Witch Weather to discuss the band’s new self-titled album, their search for a sense of belonging as members of the queer community, the important element that keeps the duo’s creative bond strong, and the influence of the DMV on their sound.
