Western Education // Class of 2014

2014 Rock 'n' Roll Rumble

Western Education are Greg Alexandropoulos – vocals and keyboards, Georgio Broufas – guitar, Will Hunt – bass and production, Mark Ragusa – drums

Western Education formed in the spring of 2011 after lead singer Greg covered  the UMass Lowell campus with flyers looking for some like-minded musicians.

Will and Georgio responded  and the demo process was on. Not satisfied with the electronic drums on the early recordings, they searched for a drummer.  The band was solidified when Mark joined in early 2012. Western Education is the sort of band that  strives to breathe new life into pop music by creating exciting anthems with big choruses and even bigger hooks.

Their sound is best described as a modern indie-dance blend of The Killers, Interpol, and Muse; with highly ambitious arrangements and smart lyrical content. Western Education has two EPs under their belt , a self-titled debut EP  from March 2012 and The Weekend Sessions, released December  2012. The  band’s full length debut is due this summer.

The lead single “Rivals”  from the the record was released in September 2013. Western Education was selected as part of the Boston Phoenix’s Top 13 Best New Bands of 2013.
