Finish Ticket Makes Late Night TV Debut

Finish Ticket - Best New Bands

New York - Last night, Finish Ticket made its late night TV debut on TBS’ Conan, performing “Wrong” from the EP When Night Becomes Day. The San Francisco band – and former Best New Bands Featured Artist – will kick off its headline tour “Finish Ticket Fall Tour 2016” on September 28th in St. Louis, MO. All tour dates are listed below.

Best New Bands last caught Finish Ticket on a co-headlining tour with Vinyl Theatre, back in March, at Chicago’s Bottom Lounge. The five-piece, comprised of vocalist Brendan Hoye, bassist Michael Hoye, guitarist Alex DiDonato, drummer Gabe Stein, and keyboardist Nick Stein, put on a remarkable performance.

Finish Ticket began as the brainchild of twin brothers Brendan and Michael Hoye. They started the band with their friend Alex DiDonato, while all three were still in high school. Twins Gabe and Nick Stein later joined the band. After self-releasing two EPs and a full-length, the twenty-somethings caught the attention of Elektra Records. Elektra signed Finish Ticket and re-released the band’s debut Tears You Apart. Last year, Finish Ticket released the EP When Night Becomes Day.
