Sheer Mag is an American rock band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States, formed in 2014. A combination of 1970s rock and punk ethos, the band continued to gather attention, releasing three 7-inch EPs before March 2016.[3][4] In January 2015, Rolling Stone featured the band as one of "10 New Artists You Need To Know", describing them as "a gang of punks with a not-so-secret love of Seventies classic rock."[5][6][7] Four of five band members attended the State University of New York at Purchase.[4] In 2016, the band was part of the Coachella 2016 line-up[8] and performed on Late Night with Seth Meyers.[9] On May 10, 2017, Sheer Mag released "Need To Feel Your Love", the first track off their first full-length record, Need to Feel Your Love.[10][11] On June 19, 2019, they announced their second LP, A Distant Call.[12]
