A Beverly- based rock band that balances emo-pop melodies with influences of hard rock, Exit 18 was formed in 2013 while the members were students at Beverly High School as a merge between two bands. Bandmates Julia Perry, Sean Leahy, Doug Mears, Darren Muise and Dylan Perry all live near Exit 18 off Route 128.
After collaborating for a year, they released their debut single “I Don't Need It” in 2017. Their live energy and theatrics brought them to venues such as The Middle East in Cambridge and Pianos in New York City. In 2018, they dropped their first music video for “All Yours.” shortly followed up with “Control The Mass.” They plan to release their debut EP later this year.
