The power pop/pop punk group, I.M. Legend, which hails from New Haven, CT will reunite on August 6th for an official farewell concert. The group, which disbanded in 2009, gained national exposure while touring with acts like These Green Eyes (Atlantic Records), Driver Side Impact (Victory Records), Thieves and Villains (Victory Records), and The Forecast (Eyeball Records). The band released two albums, an EP entitled “So Say We” in 2005 and the full length “God Speed Jack Ketch,” which was released on Burnt Carbon Records in 2008.
“We never got to give our fans an official goodbye,” quips vocalist Rob Scanlon, “that's what this is about, closure.” All members of the band's original touring roster will reunite for the farewell show including: Rob Scanlon (vocals), Joey Onifero (Drums), Rob LaRock (guitar), Martin McLaughlin (guitar), and Brain Stanislawski (bass).
The Old Stone Church UCC, located at 251 Main Street in East Haven, CT will play host to the band's final show. “We played there when we were coming up; it feels like home. Our last show there, two years ago, brought in nearly 500 people,” explains Scanlon on the choice of venue. The band plans on performing “God Speed Jack Ketch,” in its entirety, along with many other fan favorites.
Scanlon's new project, The Lion Faced Boy, which is based out of Tampa Bay, FL, will open the show. Local standouts, One Love and Anchors Away, will also perform. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased the door.
