Hello and welcome to the Worst Little Podcast! Rory, Nick and Rick are here to bring you our last show of the season with the excellent band Four Stroke Baron. Press play!

Four Stroke Baron is Kirk Witt on guitars and vocals, Matt Vallarino on drums, and Keegan Ferrari on bass. They’re described as an energetic blend of new-wave and heavy progressive rock. From the band: Four Stroke Baron aspire to bring forth a lively and refreshing new voice. The group crafts massive and immersive soundscapes juxtaposed over catchy, pop-like song structures. It is this penchant for blending familiar sounds and styles into something altogether new that has allowed the band to undergo a dramatic metamorphosis from their humble beginnings improvising in a shed outside of Reno, Nevada, to preparing for the debut of their second full-length album, “Planet Silver Screen,” on Prosthetic Records.

Be sure to like and follow them on social media for updated tour schedules and more! Big thanks to the band for being on the show this week!
