There comes a day in everyone’s life when they realize there must be more.
“Music was the only thing that took me there,” admits singer and guitarist Dustin W. “When push came to shove, music was the only thing left that seemed real.” It is this passion and love for music that brought the alternative rock band, Reality Addiction , finally together. All hailing from New Jersey, the band is comprised of Dustin Widofsky (Vocals/Guitars), Ben Antelis (Drums/Vocals), Sheep (Bass), and Robby Tal (Lead Guitar).
In the summer of 2007 the band released their first self-titled EP. The overwhelming response of the release drew CD sales from all over the country, and over 200,000 plays on their Myspace in a very short period of time. In September 08' the band released their debut album Maybe Now You'll Listen which drew sales from around the globe.
Along with being hired by a large range of colleges, festivals and parties, some of the bands' notable appearances include: performing at Six Flags Over Georgia with Natasha Bedingfield, playing at Rutgers University with Max Bemis of Say Anything, headlining the “Break Stage” at the Bamboozle Festival at the Meadowlands Sports Complex, playing at the Virginia State Fair with the Plain White T’s, UPenn Spring Fling, Rutgers University BOTB with Ben Kenney of Incubus and then winning to go on to open Rutgersfest on April 30, 2010- which included acts like Brand New, Talib Kweli, P.O.S. and J.
