The Warhawks Release Stardust Disco
A while back, The Warhawks released “Deliver,” a raucous track full of rumbling bass, big guitar leads and gang vocals. It was just a taste of what to expect from the beloved Jersey blue-collar rocker’s latest EP, Stardust Disco. It can be streamed in its entirety at New Noise Magazine. These six songs find the band shedding some skin from their last release, Never Felt So Good, and showing off their appreciation for pop music. Just think of some of the more radio friendly hits of bands like The Clash and Pixies mixed with the beautiful vocal arrangements of The Beach Boys and you’ll start to get an idea of what Stardust Disco is all about. Carve some time out of your day to listen and be sure to catch the band on tour.

Comprised of Matt Orlando, Tom Lipski, and Bilodeau brothers John and Pat, The Warhawks are a dynamic, blue-collared indie rock outfit from Gloucester City, NJ.
Following a string of DIY releases, the band released their debut LP Never Felt So Good in January 2019, recorded and mastered by Dave Downham (Beach Slang, Into It. Over It.). Combining soaring punk rock anthems of love, life and hope with a refreshing alt-rock twist, Never Felt So Good would earn them accolades as 93.3 WMMR’s “Band of the Month” that following March, as well as steady rotation of their song “Miracle” on top indie station 88.5 WXPN and live appearances on WRFF Radio 104.5.
Through their relentless efforts, the band has toured themselves throughout the northeast and midwest while cultivating a large, passionate fan base at home. They have also earned prominent opening slots for White Reaper, July Talk, The Menzingers, and Off With Their Heads among others.
In the fall of 2019 the band returned to Gradwell House to begin pre-production with Downham on their next release. From this collaboration comes their latest offering, a six-song EP entitled Stardust Disco, which was released on February 1st, 2020 on New Rivals Entertainment.
