We play melodic/noisy rock music. We put out our first record last summer and are currently working on record number two. Our tunes have a modest, quiet fury about them that gets louder and louder every time we play.
The 5 of us currently live together in a house in Bloomington, Indiana where we play music in our basement and throw shows in the living room.
We currently attend Indiana University as well.
We released our first record 'You, Me, and the Monster' with Roaring Colonel Records in July of 2011 at the Earth House in Indianapolis.
We made the album with our friend Tyler Watkins, bassist/producer of Margot and the Nuclear So & So's, who produced and played on the record with us.
"An accomplished sound that's persuasive whether it's loud or quiet, agitated or calm." - David Lindquist, Indianapolis Star
"A young, hungry band with killer tunes — can’t ask for more." - Jeremy Zucker, Indy Rock Live
"It’s a great blend of loud indie rock and mellow acoustic jams (“King Kong” is a great example of the former)...It’s an eclectic mix that stays grounded thanks to the sing-along hooks and solid songwriting" - Bears Eat Beats, Music Blog
We've had the pleasure of sharing the stage with many acts including but not limited to: Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr, Margot and the Nuclear So & So's, Guided by Voices, GROUPLOVE, Bear Hands, Lookbook, Elsinore, The Broderick, Everything Now!, Company of Thieves, Aunt Martha, Walk the Moon, and Gardens and Villa.
We were a part of the Jansport Battle of the Bands and won a slot at the Sonicbids party at SXSW 2012.
We went out and played the inaugural Bunbury Music Festival this summer in Cincinnati.
We are currently playing shows and working on our second album, again with Sgt Watkins.
