Debut EP "I'll Crash My Bike For You" came out in February 2009 after a nearly sold out CD release show. The album and title track were coined after their drummer literally crashed his bicycle when he was daydreaming about a girl he liked. Finding the Warren gets continued airplay all day on several Iowa Clear Channel stations and college radio stations.



Finding the Warren has been together for just under a year, but in that short time period they have accomplished more than most bands do in multiple years. They've been described by magazines that have featured them as reminiscent of The Maine, All Time Low, and Jack's Mannequin with hints of musical tastes from nearly all genres.

Hailing from an area not often known for music, Des Moines, Iowa, the band is made up of Joe Summers, vocals, Tyler Kingkade, guitar, Ryan Hubbard, bass, Nick Tillinghast, keys and Kelly Kunzler, drums, and all members sharing in writing lyrics. They began with four members, but after losing their singer and keyboardist, the remaining three members decided to replace him with not one but two new members, one for vocals and one for keyboards. Shortly after singer Joe Summers joined the band in April of 2008, things started taking off and the band has shared the stage with national acts in almost every show they’ve played since April 2008.

The band secured a spot on the Ernie Ball stage during the 2008 Vans Warped Tour, and they’ve played with The Maine, Mayday Parade, Breathe Carolina, Mae, The Higher and A Rocket to the Moon, among many others. At the end of this month, they will be playing a show with Cute is What We Aim For, Every Avenue, and Breathe Carolina, sharing the stage with the last two for the third time.

Most recently, Finding the Warren celebrated the release of their first CD at the House of Bricks in Des Moines, Iowa, playing to a nearly sold-out crowd and cementing their status as Iowa’s hottest band. The CD has gotten a great response, and the band has made plans to record more tracks this summer. They have also received a sponsorship deals and several of their songs in regular rotation on Clear Channel and college radio stations around Iowa.

Their upcoming plans include an acoustic set in Hot Topics around malls in the Midwest set up by the Hot Topic franchise, playing a headlining spot on the popular Gross Domestic Product music festival in Des Moines, and plans for a summer tour as well as recording with Jordan Schmidt in Minneapolis, a producer who has worked with bands on Epitaph Records, Atlantic Records, Hopeless Records, and many on the rise pop rock bands.
