About Hurry

As bassist in Philadelphia band Everyone Everywhere, Matthew Scottoline didn't get much chance to sing or write songs. Instead, he spent his free time writing and recording songs on his own, delving further into power pop and '90s guitar rock than his main band ever did. He named the project Hurry and it kept his creative energy flowing over the decade he had in the band. In 2012, he released an eight-song self-titled record under the Hurry name, playing all the instruments himself. When Everyone Everywhere began to cut back on their schedule in the early 2010s, Scottoline decided to form an actual band, recruiting drummer Rob DeCarolis and a rotating cadre of friends on bass to play live shows. The lineup solidified around DeCarolis on drums and his brother Joe on bass, and they recorded their debut album. Everything/Nothing was released in late 2014 by Hot Green Records. They showed up next on Lame-O Records' six-band EP Strength in Weakness, contributing the song "Shake It Off," before heading out on tour later in the year with fellow '90s revivalists Yuck. Hurry stuck with Lame-O for their next album, Guided Meditation, which came out in April of 2016. ~ Tim Sendra
