Ancient Cities melds well-crafted lyrics with synth-laden psychedelia and cinematic moodiness. While recording their debut album, Ancient Cities founding member and songwriter, Stephen Warwick, recruited longtime friend, Justin Fedor (The New Familiars), to join the band and help finish the album. With songs featured on Showtime’s “Shameless” and TBS’s “Cougar Town”, the band made appearances at clubs, theaters, and major festivals including Newport Folk Festival, CMJ Muisc Marathon, FloydFest, Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion and more.
During the recording of their second album, Supermoon Blackout, keyboardist Justin Faircloth was added to the lineup helping the album earn praises from fans and critics alike; including winning Creative Loafing’s Best Locally Released Album of 2016. The band continues to tour up and down the eat coast, sharing club dates with bands like The Naked & Famous, Dr Dog, The Whigs, The Futurebirds, Clear Plastic Masks and many others. Recently added to the NC-based label, Refresh Records, both of the band’s albums have now been released to vinyl and they have begun working on a third album.
