SONG PREMIERE: Stacked Like Pancakes Go Big & Brass On “Hollow” Lead Single Off New LP ‘Strange Creatures’

Stacked Like Pancakes (SLP) is a boisterous Baltimore-based brass-rock band.

Beginning in 2007, Stacked Like Pancakes was founded on an idolization of artists like Reel Big Fish,  Streetlight Manifesto, and Less Than Jake. Following the 2011 debut ska album We’re Not Insane, SLP and renaissance frontman-songwriter Kellen McKay began to develop an obsession with breaking genre boundaries. SLP has since proven to maintain a thick sonic texture through a synthesis of inspirations including Reel Big Fish, Twenty One Pilots, Foo Fighters, Paramore, Cage the Elephant, and an untraceable amount of other artists and genres.

Stacked Like Pancakes found their niche in music festivals in 2012, supporting Kid Cudi at Towson University’s Tigerfest. In 2014, SLP won the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands competition, earning their first appearance on the Vans Warped Tour. When they were invited to return in 2015, the Warped Tour sparked a love for the road. In March 2017, Stacked Like Pancakes was a featured artist for the Vans Warped Tour, performing alongside Bless the Fall, Memphis May Fire, Jule Vera, and Microwave at the official Warped Tour Kickoff Party in Orlando, Florida. During this stretch of time, SLP embarked on several self-booked headlining tours, a national tour supporting ska-parallels Reel Big Fish, and in 2015 released their fan-funded sophomore album THIS IS US.

Stacked Like Pancakes has announced the release of their new LP Strange Creatures and its kickstarting campaign. “

Glide is proud to premiere the lead single “Hollow,” (below) an alternative-pop rocker full of hummable hooks and high energy precision. Stacked Like Pancakes has the recipe of radio favorites The Revolutionists and X Ambassadors but with an eclectic flair that can adhere to both the festival crowd and new musical ears.

Hollow” was produced by multi-platinum music producer and writer Matt Squire, whose credits include Kesha, Demi Lovato, Good Charlotte, Selena Gomez, All Time Low, Panic! at the Disco, and Taking Back Sunday.

“Picture a song by the Foo Fighters – with horns.” says lead singer Kellen McKay says about the track. “Our new single is brimming with fat guitar riffs, potent lyrical imagery and demanding horn melodies. If “Hollow” doesn’t define brass-rock, I don’t know what will.”
