THE NEW DIVISION
THE NEW DIVISION
The New Division is the alias of Los Angeles based electronic Musician/Producer John Glenn Kunkel. What began as a college bedroom project in Riverside, CA was eventually met with critical success in the winter 2011 debut E.P., “The Rookie.” A few months later, the first full-length record entitled “Shadows,” was declared "album of the year" by several renowned music tastemakers and garnered the band an international following. "Night Escape," which was released as the second E.P. in 2012, shifted gears with the project’s songcraft. Sonically, it featured a more developed and refined dance-oriented sound encompassing lush expansive instrumentation and brighter tonalities. An appearance by the Greek Balearic outfit Keep Shelly in Athens, and the unprecedented success of the second single “Kids” paved a new vantage point for the act. In 2014, the sophomore LP "Together We Shine" was the culmination of 2 years of hard work and utter chaos. By 2015 The New Division released the hybrid organic and electronic record, "Gemini" marking the first collaboration with F.J. DeSanto who co-produced the record alongside Kunkel. Their work together further continued on the synth-laden 2017 EP, "Precision." In the midst of changing tides, The New Division is now back with its latest meticulously crafted work, "FADER" - a 6 track EP that blends future pop aesthetic, analog dance beats, and dark atmospheres - serving up the hybrid noir-pop sound the outfit has been known to deliver time and time again.
