Boots With Spurs

Boots With Spurs

 Chicago, Illinois, USA

Boots With Spurs is a Psychedelic/Post Punk Rock band from Chicago whose unique sound merges Live Electronics with complex riffs and Punk Rock attitude.


Boots with Spurs formed in early 2009 when guitarist Clay Bail and drummer Matt Gonzalez gathered members of experienced Chicago-based bands.

Our debut record is a two-part concept album consisting of two thirty minute works that total the 18 track full-length record.

Providing an energetic and very interactive live show, Boots with Spurs captures the music of the unique record with technical proficiency and other-wordly sounds. Even in a short amount of time, BOOTS has established a one-of-a-kind fan culture.

Compared to the likes of These Arms Are Snakes, At The Drive-In, Frank Zappa, Rage Against the Machine, and everything from Jimi Hendrix to Everytime I Die, BOOTS gives listeners a modern angle on the past, present, and future of Rock N Roll.

Set List

Our typical setlist ranges from 35-50 minutes long. We perform the two continuous recordings back-to-back, set to interactive visuals. For shorter sets, we provide an abridged version of the album. A Boots with Spurs set draws on audience participation and a cult-like atmosphere, praising the future of the Rock N Roll concert experience and inviting all to join the performance.
