Florida-based Indie-Pop band Brightside was formed in 2014 by five friends: Jake, Connor, Dillon, Will, and Cory.
Brightside has made a name for themselves through their high energy live shows, optimistic lyrics, and their love of making new friends in every city they visit. Their discography began with singles “Filthy Bad Habit” and “Hello Reality” off their debut EP “Feels Like Fiction.” This release bolstered the band’s popularity throughout the southeastern United States which prompted a successful crowdfunding campaign for their highly anticipated follow-up EP, “Heart Science.” Since the EP’s release, lead single “AEIOU” has seen consistent radio play and has become the band’s live-show anthem. Radio success sparked the band’s online presence—2,000 plays quickly turned into 250k plays, and they began touring. The band hit the road in early 2017 with We The Kings & Cute Is What We Aim For as part of the WTK10 Tour. Soon after they set out on their first headlining tour, “The Mixtape Tour” which took them around the southeast with a variety of regional acts.
