Bio

Still Not Sexy was founded in 2000 by Peter Carparelli and Evan de Vries. Originally a cover band SNS covered everything from Green Day to Nirvana Blink 182 to Metallica and the list goes on.

Still Not Sexy really got its start in mid 1999 When Evan and peter took a rock ensemble class together at The Old Town School Of Folk Music in Chicago and became close friends. Once the class ended Peter invited Evan to join the band. From there the search began for a bass player

Flash forward four years. Location Tinley Park. Event: Still Not Sexy's first performance at The Vans Varped Tour. For their first year they opened up the show. Still Not Sexy was the first band on the first stage that most of the concert goers saw.

After the rush of that year's warped tour they set out to conquer other venues...that didn't really happen. SNS decided to take most of 2005 to write and record new material.
In march of 2005 SNS applied to play the Warped Tour once again and got a single slot in Chicago.
In Early June in preparation for Warped Tour, SNS headed to Million Yen Studio to record their second EP. With limited time the quarted finished the five songs in as many days with the help of their producers Andy Gerber and Geoff Sabin. Having recorded the likes of Cheap Trick, Local H, Billy Corgan and many others, they knew how to make a top quality record in a short amount of time.
After the whirlwind recording and mastering session, SNS set out on the task of burining hundreds of copies of their new CD to sell at Warped Tour.
After Warped '05 SNS yet again took a break only taking a few shows here and there until early 2006 when they entered into the Emergenza Festival.
Emergenza was fun for them but they didn't advance to the next round. It was a blow to them but drove them to build a better repertoire.
During the months following Emergenza SNS wrote a collection of songs that most fans say were the best songs the band had written.
In July of 2006 the band widdled down their 8 newest songs down to 5 which would go on their september release "Everything Is Epic!" The highly anticipated EP took almost 2 weeks to record and nearly broke the band. But the trouble was worth it in the long run.
The combination of the strong songs and a show at the metro before the new year helped launch a string of gigs that helped the band strengthen their fan base and grow as a band.

Currently the band is yet again practicing and writing new material and preparing for their show at the Metro.
