Right now the band is preparing for the summer and just enjoying life. Thanks everyone for the support and we hope to see you at a show.


Philadelphia entered in the latter part of December 2004. During our time on purevolume our stats brought us into the top 10 unsigned bands during the months of April and May 2005.

We obtained top 10 status in the pop punk, punk and rock catatories and in the top ten of all unsigned bands on purevolume. We appreciate all the plays and downloads. We want to say thanks to all who have supported us on this journey. We will be playing new material at the local shows and hope to bring it to you on cd in early spring.

In an industry older than most of the rockers it serves, everyone is looking for the next great thing. Enter Philadelphia. A breath of fresh air in this atmosphere we call punk rock.

With their high-energy live show and undeniable message, Philadelphia is sure to deliver.
