"Everything Meant the World to Me" EP (available for free on bandcamp)



Imagine if all the old ska bands had taken their favorite reggae records and threw them out, replacing them with 80s indie and the Ramones instead- that's Les Animaux.

Chris and Cesar have been writing songs and in bands together since spring 2010. The Sagendorph brothers (friends of Cesar's from their college days) joined this incarnation of the band a year later in April of 2011. Luke, a member of one of Chris and Cesar's previous bands, returned to the States from Vietnam in August. Erick joined the band in summer 2011.

The band's debut release, "Everything Meant the World to Me," was recorded at Engine in Chicago in the fall. It's available, for free, at the band's bandcamp profile: http://lesanimaux.bandcamp.com.

We chose the name Les Animaux because French names are hard to come by in the world of music, and we want our music to be the same way - unique and different, where each song is singular from its peers, but still close enough to home where it all seems to make sense.
