Bricks For Shoulders

One Guitar, 2 speakers, a man and his drums, what more is there to say? There is a lot of stuff that goes on in this world that no one agrees with. Well one day; 2 guys got together to try and address these issues by way of sound.

Biography

With a backlash of prosthetic, regurgitated music spread ubiquitously across the nation like a cancer, there's a fresh sense of security seeing something organic and true. Bricks for Shoulders is a sight for sore eyes amongs an eye sore of generic muck." (Generation Strikes; issue 3)

Originated in the Fall of 2004, Bricks for Shoulders is comprised of Steven DeJoseph on guitar and lead vocals and Thomas Crooke on Percussion and vocals. Descending from musical excursions such as Self-Infliction, Pretty Polly, Elevated Water, Swell as Hell, and Prescott C., some of which Tom and Steve had worked together on, much of Bricks for Shoulders' sound and feel is built from the foundation and framework of the past.

Many of their songs are spawned from personal experience and social observation, delivering chilling memoirs and a commentary on society that will have a lingering effect. They do not have a formula as to what they will write about, and they will not sit on your fron porch and bitch about heart breaks, nor deny the fact that they have done so in the past. The overall sound of Bricks is heavy, aggressive, poignant and devistatingly beautiful.
