Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son Release Timeless “Empty Passenger Seats”

This track is “New Jersey” in the truest ways. It’s got a Springsteeny, Gaslight Anthemy vibe, with heart and soul well beyond Mahoney’s years and a guitar riff that’s just an all-out mother fucking rocker. “Empty Passenger Seats” has that indescribable timeless quality to it that just makes it feel like an instant classic, that has a vintage feel without being dated.

There’s an unbelievable amount of energy in Mahoney’s music. This is the type of jam you play air guitar to. Shamelessly. Like whether or not people are staring. Fuck it. You can be a rock star too. Just like Bobby Mahoney. You get in your wide stance, strum your cords, bang your head, throw a badass kick when the chorus hits so everybody knows what’s up. That’s what this tune’s about. Head banging, high kicking, speeding down the fucking highway with an empty passenger seat, being twenty-two years old and euphoria of your life not being over yet.

Stream: Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son – “Empty Passenger Seats”
‘Empty Passenger Seats’ started as a riff/jam with my friend Dan Cohen (Creating Clementine, Hero of Me), and then I brought it to the band and we shaped it and arranged it together in a hotel room near Pittsburgh. John Shepherd whistled that little guitar lick in the chorus, and recording that bit was one of my favorite parts of the process for these new songs. We drove over night home from Richmond at the end of last summer’s tour, and that experience became the lyrics for the bridge. This song feels like the band’s current journey in a way, and it is just a lot of fun to play. It’s loud and it kicks you in the ass. This is the first of a bunch of new singles we will be releasing and it’s just the tip of the iceberg. We had a great time working with Frank Marra (Brian Fallon, Jared Hart, Dead Swords, many more) at North End Recording and we can’t wait to keep releasing the new songs.”

Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son Release New Album "Shot in the Dark"!

Shot in the Dark is the 3rd full-length studio album by Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son

The band said, "We wanted to record an album that showcased this band in its current line-up, with a live, raw, and "reckless" sound. This is the result of those pursuits."

The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered at William Paterson University by Joe Larkin.

“There's a lot to gleam from "Shot in the Dark," but perhaps its most exhilarating quality is its promise of more…the record offers as much or more as ever. The words, notes, and motifs mark another step forward for the band…The guitars and vocals are present, and the drums and bass groove deeply [and] Mahoney's direction as a songwriter continues to evolve and show new promise”

- John Shepherd

Musician, friend to the band, and contriuting editor of mayhem.com


Shot in the Dark is now availalbe worldwide.

“Shot in the Dark”: New Record and Summer Tour!

“We wanted to make a record that captured the energy of the band live. We wanted it to be raw, imperfect, and honest, while letting the songs speak for themselves, and we really could not be more excited about it all.”


Shot in the Dark will be available digitally on July 8th via Bandcamp, Spotify, iTunes, etc., and July 10th on CD.


As if that wasn’t enough good news, the band will also be doing their biggest tour to date to support the new record, including a record release party at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park on 7/10 with special guests Backyard Superheroes, Goodbye Tiger, and Will Wood and the Tapeworms!
