The Max Tribe – New Album Release

Boston-based indie band The Max Tribe have released their debut album “Retrofit” on August 18. Listen to their single “Yellow Pages” here:

The album “Retrofit” takes its name from taking something old and revitalizing it with the addition of contemporary parts. The band does this with their ability to take classic rock influences to create new psych-Blues and Soul indie rock similar in sound to The Black Keys or Morning Jacket. The album was recorded over the course of 15 months at 1867 Studios in Boston, a massive building that once served as a Masonic Temple but now houses the collection of vintage recording equipment.

“These songs transpired through strife, love, heartbreak, and mystery, conditions we all relate to,” The Max Tribe said. “The sound of the record cultivated from old techniques with a retrofit approach. We sought out to take vintage sounds and modernize them. The theme or concept of the record is revealed most in the production. We recorded most of the album in an old Masonic Temple built in 1867. This is where the album ultimately got its color and conviction.”

The band was born in 2013 when vocalist and Nashville-native Austin Max united with drummer Conner Kessler at music school in Boston. For more than a year they developed a psych sound playing around New England. Together they linked up with keyboard player Noah Lubert and bass player Rafael Minerbo in 2016, completing the group’s signature psych sound.
