About the signing, Upstate Records owner Mario Cangemi stated:
“THESE STREETS epitomizes the direction of the label.  They capture all the elements we love…hard, intense, authentic.”

For the new single “Stay Awake”, set to be released on May 20th, frontman Cameron Ross drew inspiration from the band’s time on road with legendary New York hardcore bands Skarhead and Brick By Brick on their recent West Coast Tour.

About the new single, vocalist Cameron Ross stated:
“Let’s just say that “Stay Awake” is about a really long night we had on tour with Skarhead and Brick By Brick…a very long and interesting night.”

In addition, about the band and upcoming album, he stated:
“These Streets is a band that wants to be defined/remembered by for the fact that we have a consistent message on fighting mental health and the hardships of life.  The band has strong lyrical content that can hold meaning for many individuals.  When it comes to the instrumentals, there’s no denying is heavy-hitting hard rock that can make anyone bang their head.  On our upcoming album we really defined the unique sound that we want These Streets to be represented by.”

The hard-hitting band consists of Cam (vocals), Ben (drums), Fred (guitar), JT (guitar), and Mike (bass). They hail from Modesto, California and have been a staple in the underground metal/hardcore scene since 2014.  Respected for their heavy but melodic style, These Streets are carving out their own lane.
