RODERIK Underscores Baltimore Music Scene via Upcoming Shows

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.

RODERIK will be performing on August 18 at The Crown for “Emo Night,” a themed event featuring fellow NJ-based At Arms Reach and Lancaster, PA-based Layul.

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.
