Six members, 101 shows in 2011, 149 shows in 2012, 208 shows in 2013, and 1 unified goal: To make audiences have the most fun possible.
Survay Says! is a 6-piece ska/pop punk band from a small town called Blairstown, NJ. Originally forming in 2008 by brothers Henry & D.Jay Menzel, Survay Says! has spent the last 4 years honing their craft to bring listeners the horn-driven sound ska fans crave along with the high speed energy of pop punk. If there is one word that could sum up an SS! set, that word would be "fun", and that's exactly what the band strives for.
While the band's music and live sets are all about play, Survay Says! off stage is all about work. While working completely independant of any representation, SS! managed to book and play 100+ shows in 12 states in 2011, 149 shows in 26 states in 2012 (Including a date on the Hartford, CT Warped Tour), 208 shows in 2013 with a 90+ day/34 state headlining tour throughout summer 2013, a three week tour with Big D and the Kids Table and Red City Radio, and cracked 500 career shows in October 2013 and the band doesn't plan to slow down. SS! has also performed at Pouzza Fest in Montreal and Pre FEST and The Fest in Tampa and Gainesville, FLA. Survay Says! prides themselves on being one of the hardest working bands around. In July 2012, the band released their 3rd full length album entitled "Where We Exist" through Third Time Lucky Rekords on iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, and many other online outlets, selling on average about 100 units per month since its release with 1000+ physical units sold to date (July 20th, 2012 - July 31, 2013).
Survay Says! released "Observations Of The Human Condition" on April 8th. Their debut full length on Asbestos Records. The album is also set to release in the UK, Japan, and Canada. The record was recorded and produced by John Naclerio (My Chemical Romance, Brand New, Polar Bear Club) and features guest vocals from David McWane of Big D and the Kids Table and Joe Ragosta of Patent Pending.
Despite their dedication to this industry, Survay Says! makes sure to interact with any and all fans. Feel free to keep in touch with the band on Facebook! Thank you for listening to Survay Says!
