TOUR DIARY: Peep 21 Tour Photos from Mod ‘80s Pop Crew, Public Access T.V.

Meet Public Access T.V., the four-piece band consisting of none other than your average high school dropouts. Leaving their hometown for dreams of making it big in the city, the group's story is a bit like that of your favorite '80s hair bands.

For instance, after the group's formation they were hit with a plethora of press, bidding wars, concert headlines and a critically-acclaimed debut album. All of these pivotal landmarks can be found on any new musician's yellow brick road to success. However, as the story so often goes, addiction, fights, and devastation fought to tear the band apart. With a strong stance against adversity the boys stuck it out and began work on their sophomore album, Street Safari. As said by frontman John Eatherly, 

“There was no spiritual awakening or come-to-Jesus moment. We’re four young guys trying to figure our lives out, be good people, and a lot of the time find ourselves coming up short. Expressing this through songwriting is the challenge and I can only hope the deliverance.”

Street Safari is a bright and fresh record that's been soaked in your favorite '80s pop-rock. Listen to the album on the platform of your choice here. In addition to the album, the band is on a tour by the same name venturing across Europe and the United States. Follow along below as they give us inside access to their European adventures, and keep an eye on the band as they hit the US for the second leg of their Street Safari tour.
