The Maguas are a Scranton favorite – this NEPA native 5-piece anthem emo rock band, consisting of Erik Miller (Vocals), Matthew Jenkins (Lead Guitar), Daulton Rissinger (Rhythm Guitar), Luke Prusinski (Bass), and Brandon Ossont (Drums), found its roots in the Electric City and hit the ground running ever since its inception in 2018.
Following in the footsteps of anthemic emo rockers of the early 2000’s such as Jimmy Eat World, Bayside, and My Chemical Romance, The Maguas embrace a blend of alternative rock and power-pop-punk that tugs at your heartstrings.
With their emo-punk songwriting, melodic, moody, lyrically-driven anthems, and theatrical vocals, The Maguas have created a breathtaking emo sound that comes across as novel and invigorating, yet profoundly nostalgic, and wistful.
Succeeding the release of their self-produced debut EP “Good Beer.”, The Maguas joined forces with producer Nik Bruzzese (Man Overboard / Casa Loma) at Lumberyard Recording to create their second EP in January of 2020.
Following the successful release of “Glum” and “Actions Speak Louder Than Words”, which amassed a total 65k streams in less than 2 months, the third single “Will It Ever Be The Same” is out now, with subsequent monthly releases and tour dates to follow.
