Hailed as “one of the best young bands in America,” Filligar has headlined sold out shows at some of the nation's most acclaimed venues, toured the United Kingdom to wildly enthusiastic audiences, and supported such major acts as Counting Crows, The Black Keys, Alabama Shakes, Ben Folds, and My Morning Jacket. The powerhouse Boston music blog RSL has named them one of the top 8 live acts in the USA, along with fellow Chicago rockers Wilco. 

Filligar has a prolific catalog of original music, recognized as “of prestige value” by the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP). The band has been called “a fresh take on indie rock” by Paste Magazine, one of music’s “Next Big Things” by SPIN, and “a breath of fresh air” by Consequence of Sound. 

In 2013 the United States Department of State appointed Filligar cultural ambassadors representing the "American people and their cultural values" and "the best of the U.S. arts community."
