Biography

At a time when there is nothing new in rock music Agathy has set themselves apart by being different. Some say they aren�t any style, others say they�re every style, and they say they�re straight forward rock and roll with no gimmicks. Their blend of classic guitar sounds reminiscent of The Beatles, Rolling Stones, and The Who with a more grunge vocal and youthful attitude has made an original sound unlike anyone else around. Formed in 2000 the band still had three years of high school left and being from a small town in southeast Kansas with no music scene their time was spent writing and rehearsing. This went on for over three years until the band was able to cut their first studio demo in 2004. The band won �Best Elevator Song in Rock� on garageband.com for the song �Never� off the 2004 demo and later that year broke the top 200 on garageband.com�s independent music charts with the basement recording of �Runnin� Along.� In 2005 the band released a self recorded EP �The Room� and began working with a national booking agency playing several shows throughout the Midwest. They were also able to share the stage with Grammy nominated pop punkers Bowling for Soup. Late in 2005 the band slipped there demo to long time producer Larry Brockway who, impressed by the bands songs, would go on to produce their next CD. With Larry�s connections the band was able to get their newly recorded songs to Gerd Muller, former A&R for EMI. Gerd was also impressed by the bands songs and agreed to send it to some of his contacts to create some industry awareness. These songs were released in June 2006 as a self titled EP which outsold their first EP in only two and a half months. To date the band has written over 60 original songs and is playing as many shows as possible, building their growing fan base as they go. In the fall of 2006 they completed three successful tours taking them to Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Colorado. In December 2006 Agathy shot a music video for they�re song �You Must Go� with SEK Magazine which was released in February 2007. Agathy spent most of 2007 playing local shows and writing new songs and in early 2008 they went in to the studio to record.
