Biography

Classical pianos and blistering guitars meld together to create an insatiably full sound...familiar, and yet so inventively different that it has the insane ability to convert a new listener upon first listen.

Butterfly Assassins (Brian Trahan, Bryan Kveton, Danny Yadron, Dylan Fischer) have been molding their unique sound since early 2002. These boyhood friends honed their skills in the jazz band room and in the orchestra pit, however they first developed their sound and chemistry while playing in the sandbox. Cellist Kate Wakefield met the band in their first year in college and was was later added as a fifth member of the band.

Says the band of their upcoming album "There’s a concept, a feel, a style, and a strange fascination with a Russian woman named Sylvia. It has an amount of artistic ambition that we’re dying to get on tape. The sound is definitely much more complex and more intense, leaving room to expand."

Butterfly Assassins self released an EP in 2006 and are currently signed with New York indie label Old Flame Records. Assassins are currently pushing their new full-length album, Sylvia, which made its debut on Old Flame Records April 1st of 2008.
