"I know you're good at keeping secrets.Well I'm better at wearing them out for the world to see."

"Music is about connecting with people, and that's what we focus on more than anything else," says Transit's vocalist Joe Boynton. Natives of north shore Boston, Transit is a band that displays an arresting degree of honesty and individuality in their music. While clearly drawing inspiration from seminal groups such as Lifetime and Saves The Day, as well as the Northeast US pop-punk and hardcore scenes that all five members grew up in, Transit has swiftly evolved into a group with a more alternative, indie rock sound. "We all grew up listening to a wide variety of music, but bands like Archers of Loaf, Braid, Osker and American Football demonstrated to us that there are always refreshing ways to create a new style and feel," explains guitarist Tim Landers. Illustrating Transit's artistic evolution from one release to the next, early descriptions of the group compared them to Taking Back Sunday and Brand New, and now, more recently, to bands like Death Cab For Cutie and Modest Mouse.

The band's prolific output is also impressive by any measure, having put out seven releases over the last four years. Transit's highly acclaimed LP, "Keep This To Yourself", released in August 2010 on Run For Cover Records, inspired Absolutepunk to rave: "Good luck keeping Transit's passionate and infectious tunes a secret. Once you hear the first chords of opener "Dear Anyone," you'll immediately go out and tell all your friends about the best pop-punk album of 2010."

Transit has toured throughout North America and overseas alongside Fireworks, Hostage Calm, Balance and Composure, Less Than Jake, Such Gold, A Loss For Words, Man Overboard, Senses Fail, The Wonder Years and many others.
