We’re up to episode 49 and this time we’re joined by Rob Hitt. Rob was the drummer for New Jersey band Midtown who were one of the first successful bands of the Drive Thru Records movement. Rob talks us through his long career in music with some amazing achievements. We discuss Midtown’s rise in the early 2000s and what happened after that. During this time Rob started I Surrender Records, which he still runs today. With his label he has signed bands like Four Year Strong and Valencia. We discuss his life these days living in Brooklyn, life as a vegan in 2020, and how he started the viral Instagram and Twitter account for Bodega Cats.
Check out I Surrender Records’ recent releases and of course, listen through the incredible Midtown discography.
