The Ergs Debut LP 'DorkRockCorkRod' Celebrates 10th Anniversary With New Vinyl Master
Recently heralded by The A.V. Club as a pop-punk essential, the band has released a new vinyl master of their debut LP DorkRockCorkRod. The classic album is celebrating it's 10th Anniversary and is available now.
"DorkRockCorkRod offers introspection while still cracking a smile, serving as a distillation of pop-punk's range and scope. The three-song suite of "Most Violent Rap Group," "Pray For Rain," and "Saturday Night Crap-O-Rama" may be one of the best triple plays in all of rock music, let alone pop-punk." - Jason Heller, The A.V. Club
The Ergs! started in 2000 in South Amboy, NJ as three high school friends - drummer/lead vocalist Mike Yannich (Mikey Erg), guitarist/vocalist Jeff Schroeck (Jeff Erg), and bassist Joe Keller (Joey Erg). They were all students ad Bridge High School at the time. Over their nearly decade-long run (their last show was November 15, 2008) they toured relentlessly across the country and released some of the smartest and most-loved pop-punk of the 2000s. After breaking up, members of The Ergs! went on to form bands like Black Wine and Night Birds. Mikey Erg also performs solo.
