Sunday at Noon is a modern rock machine hailing from Phoenix, AZ. Performing thunderous rock and roll with youthful exuberance, electrifying guitar riffs, and richly expressive vocals, Sunday At Noon is on a mission to prove that rock is not dead; its alive and kicking in the Arizona desert!

The four-piece is led by Jack VanDerPol, who delivers high powered vocals and channels the on-stage charisma of the quintessential frontmen from the 1970s. Jack is backed by his younger brother Nate VanDerPol- a drumming phenom whose skills far exceed his age, long-time friend Carl Gumpert on bass, and the swoon-worthy, Nick Torri on guitar. Drawing inspiration from Led Zeppelin, Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters and The Struts, Sunday at Noon writes and performs music that draws upon traditional elements of the genre while simultaneously modernizing it.

In 2015, Sunday At Noon released their first demo, Burning Pictures, and instantly became a fan favorite in the Valley of the Sun. With their follow up single, “Brain Damage,” SAN continued to distinguish themselves as a noteworthy member of the vibrant Phoenix music community. Mitchell Hillman (Phoenix New Times) recognized early on that, “their potential to rock seems limitless,“ naming “Maybe I’ll Regret It” and “Brain Damage” to the 50 Best Songs Written by Phoenix Bands by the Phoenix New Times in 2015 and 2016, respectively. The band experienced exponential growth in 2017, releasing a self-titled EP, playing the mainstage at several festivals including Heart of Texas Rockfest, Mesa Music Festival and Ostrich Festival, and supporting notable bands like I Don’t Know How But They Found Me, Rooney, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Alvarez Kings, and P.O.D.

Having just completed their first national tour, the band remains focused on the promotion of their first full length album, 'Beat Up & Bitter,' released September 2018. The album received 60k streams on Spotify in the first week, with their single "Honey" garnering the most attention.

“Sunday At Noon reaches for arena-rock power on their latest single, “Honey”, and they don’t fall short. This new track definitely demonstrates that this band is ready for the stadium-size crowds."- Carly Schoorman, YabYum Music+Arts
Original rock band from Las Vegas blowing up the music scene with powerful, melodic vocal, guitar and synth driven songs and great live performances.
The story feels classic. Three friends pick up three instruments and churn out the kind of no-frills rock ‘n’ roll that lasts generations. As the “industry” preoccupies itself with metrics, streams, and data, it just unfortunately doesn’t happen like this anymore…
Thankfully, it did with Arlington. The Southern California trio—Tyler Benko [vocals, guitar], Channing Peake [bass, vocals], and Grant Whitson [drums]—rallied around a pure, passionate, and powerful vision that fuels their full-length debut, A Walk Through Jackson County [Rise Records].
“Our vision was to create a straightforward rock band—guitar, bass, and drums,” affirms Tyler. “That was it. It was a simple setup with simple tones and simple everything. We derived the creativity from our songwriting rather than the gear we were using or any kind of imagery.”
As the story goes, lifelong friends Tyler and Channing slogged it out in local California favorite False Puppet. Following the group’s disbandment, they reached out to Grant who tour managed them on Warped Tour and happened to be a monster behind the drum kit. In 2016, Arlington formally came to life. Inspired by the stripped-down bluesy rock of Jack White, The Strokes, Kings of Leon, and Arctic Monkeys, they spent countless hours writing songs, rehearsing, and developing an inimitable chemistry. After just four shows, early demos landed in the hands of Rise Records who promptly signed the band. They hit the studio with producer Matt Bayles [Pearl Jam, Mastodon, The Sword] to record A Walk Through Jackson County. He added a raw energy to the recording.
“Matt really maintained our honest sound,” adds Channing. “He kept us on our toes and ensured we were playing at our best at all times. We wanted to do something raw, and he was on board. The vibe was great.”
A slippery and sinewy blues riff snakes around the intro of first single “Mud.” The track builds into an overpowering refrain before descending down towards an off-time bridge in 7/4. Right out of the gate, Just Jared praised how it “seamlessly meshes modern riffs with a classic rock vibe.”
“Musically, the post-chorus breaks into this odd time signature,” explains Tyler. “We try to incorporate odd time signatures into straightforward rhythms to do something different. Lyrically, it’s about underperforming sexually. You’re afraid that you’re bad at sex and worried your partner will spread that around.
”Elsewhere, “Hollow Moon” begins with sparse strumming before strutting towards a soulful and slick chant punctuated by punchy rhythms. “Don’t Mind” tempers raucous riffing and gritty crooning that rises and falls with the beat. A convergence of confessional lyricism and airy instrumentation, it conjures up the dusty vibe hinted at in the title A Walk Through Jackson County.
Channing says, “The name felt like a good fit with the Western-style sound.”“It reflects that cowboy-ish blues sound,” elaborates Tyler. “We grew up on the West Coast. It’s in our blood.”
In the end, the only thing more classic than Arlington’s story is the music.
“When you listen to us, I want you to walk away thinking, ‘That was good fun rock music’,” Tyler leaves off. “It’s a blast to listen to and dance to. It reminds you of something back in the day, but it’s very now.”
