happy songs with sad lyrics, two-string riffs, wonky beats, and fuzzy tones, third class makes quirk-pop music in ohio, going strong since 1999.


 News: Hello! We have a new album, Hymns From Some Small Town, available in vinyl and digital. Come pick it up at one of our shows. We were recently featured in Genius Hour Project and YSU's poetry magazine, Jenny, and on an Ohio podcast, The Midnight Hour with Brandyn Chaos. We also must give a big thanks to Dean, from Red Wanting Blue, who spun our music on Akron's The Summit. Youngstown's The HomeGrown Show on 93.3 The Wolf interviewed us. Underground Columbus gave us a sweet shout out in promoting shows in Hilliard and Lima, Ohio. Our shows for the Dayton, Ohio area were announced by Music Connection. Our own Lee Boyle started his own podcast, Nursery Podcast. Our own Jack Boyle has another musical project, juche. Give them a listen and look at his art as Lazarus Taxa. And, our own Pepe Parish has started his own vegan dessert company, The Orange Avocado. That's tasty! Now, go poke around the site! We love you!

Third Class is a quirk-pop band, formed in 1999, in East Palestine, Ohio. The band, eventually, expanded to Youngstown, Ohio and started touring around the United States of America. Third Class has gained a modest following for their unique blend of sloppy pop, progressive rock, folk, and post-punk. Third Class' songs focus on childhood. All three members, Lee Boyle, Jack Boyle, and Pepe Parish, grew up in the same family.
