Every Sunday night 95.9 The Rat’s Jersey Rock Weekly Podcast brings you the latest music and interviews from the local bands that make NJ rock! On this week’s show Zach Schumacher of A Beautiful Somewhere checks in over the phone and we rock great tracks from The Hungry And Dangerous, Kodiak, Night Leather, The Vansaders, and Soraia!
On this week’s show:
We kick things off with the latest from The Vansaders! The band has a new album on the way. “Caught In The Light” will be released this summer. The lead single “So Many Ways” hits all streaming platforms on April 19. The Vansaders will share the bill with Greenday at the Sear Hear Now Festival on September 18! Learn more at facebook.com/thevansaders.
We turn up the song that first introduced us to The Hungry And Dangerous! Their eponymous single is a rad testament to the band’s collective musical past. Their evolution continues with each new single and we look forward to watching where it is all headed. Keep an eye on them at facebook.com/thehungryanddangerous!

We rock a selection from Kodiak’s Jersey Rock Home Showcase performance! Their rendition of “Red Line” rocks hard! They are repping the Jersey Rock scene on Hit Parader’s “No Cover”. It’s an epic original Rock band competition show. Judges include Alice Cooper and Lzzy Hale! Watch new episodes on Summerian Records YouTube channel. Learn more at kodiakband.com.
We crank a killer track from Night Leather. Their gothic synthwave sounds are just as good on your mobile device as they are booming throughout a dance party at a cavernous, abandoned industrial complex. The group straddles NJ, Nashville, and Paris! Stalk them now at facebook.com/nightleather!
Jersey Rock band of the Week Soraia makes a surprise appearance to close out the show! Their latest single “Firebrand” is available now via Wicked Cool Records.
