The Anytime have been nothing short of amazing since their initial self titled release in April, 2009 which was supported by over 70 shows in the general Midwest and East Coast areas. Upon arrival home to Ames, Iowa the guys got to work crafting a sound and style they have come to call "Club Rock." The better part of 2010 was spent writing and recording the follow up 5-song EP "CRAVE," which dropped February, 2011. "CRAVE" received an enormous public response which included front page features from sites such as Kings of A&R, RockEdition, Best New Bands, Substream Music Press, The Sound Alarm, and Purevolume. With in the first 48 hours "CRAVE" swelled over 10,000 plays on Purevolume, boosting the band to the Top 5 albums of the week as well as Top 5 most played.
Since the release of "CRAVE" the guys have moved to sunny Orlando, FL where they are currently finishing up writing and recording their first full length album which is set to release late 2012. In addition to writing at home, long nights in the studio/rehearsal space, the guys have been seeking out any promising stages to share with local and national acts to broaden their Central Florida and Southern American fan-base. The Anytime's hard hitting, high energy style of music carries over to their live show which is guaranteed to get the crowd up on their feet dancing, screaming and wanting more.

The new direction features a refined musical focus, producing a top-to-bottom release full of guilty pleasure pop—accessible enough for almost anyone to get into—just don’t tell my hardcore friends I liked it!

Dark tones, similar to Panic! At The Disco circa 2005, are audible at times, or at least, the enigmatic air they held is. It is a quality sure to thrill young women at live shows in each city they visit.
