"the ERERs broke our ear drums!"

Rock music is different nowadays. There’s so many more options. There’s the traditional rock n roll, blues, jam bands, heavy metal, and alternative. Nowadays it seems like everything is a fusion of multiple genres. Talent is all around, but with all of the genre fusion going on it doesn’t seem like any of them are loud. Then there’s The Erers (pronounced Errs) a Detroit riff rock band that plays at 11 the entire time.

The Erers were one of the loudest bands I've ever heard, second to only Death From Above 1979. In a small set up, like the MusicBrackets studios, the sound resonates. The bass shakes the walls, the kick drum makes the drywall in the holes of our celling fall out, and guitar makes your ears ring for the following week. When The Erers came through they hit all of those sound factors.


The Erers are a bluesy alternative rock band who we would compare to Jack White, The Black Keys, or The Kills. The band is made up of Matt RiestERER, ChristophER FichtER, and Jamison WintERbottom Mosshart. When they showed up a the MusicBrackets studio, I was expecting them to be meaner. But they were a bunch of nice guys. Maybe they don’t want people to know that.

As they set up I noticed they cover almost everything in Green Tape, an Erers signature. They were quick to get set up. We did a sound check and were ready to record. The band plays so hard and are so loud, within the first four bars of the first song the bassist Jamison WintERbottom Mosshart broke his top string. In true rock star fashion he finished the entire song as if nothing had even happened.

On this day my daughter was in the studio and quickly became infatuated with the drummer ChristophER FichtER. Keep in mind she’s 4 years old. She was taking videos on her iPad and between every song she would come up to me and tell me that the drummer was really funny. When their set was done he was trying to get her to play his drums but she was being very shy and wouldn’t. As soon as they left she was pulling out her first act kit and starting playing as if she was in the band.


If you like riffs, then you’ll like The Erers. They have some great Riffs. Their songs are short and to the point. They are good song writers that incorporate alternative rock lyrics with blues style riffs. They recently played with The Kills and are looking to release a new record in the near future. - Music Brackets


"Sunday Songs the ERERs - Deja Vu"

Sunday Songs is back this week with a brand spanking new track by Assemble residents The ERERs. Titled “Deja Vu,” this comes as the very first song they’ve recorded at the church.

Guitarist Matt Riesterer had a guitar riff in his head for a while, and went down to Assemble one day to try and work it into something substantial. Jax Anderson of Flint Eastwood just so happened to be in the church at the time Riesterer was working, and approached him to work on some songwriting that would solidify into what is now “Deja Vu.”

After a fruitful songwriting session with Anderson, Riesterer brought in fellow bandmates Christopher Fichter and Jamison Winterbottom Mosshart to the Live Room to pull it all together. The trio worked together and “ERERsified” it into a fully-realized punk number. After a few additional arrangements by Flint Eastwood, followed by engineering, mixing and mastering by S¥BL¥NG, “Deja Vu” was complete. Riesterer’s original riff chugs forward as it braids together with the swagger in his voice. Then right around the 2-minute mark, the outro comes in an energetic flurry of fuzz.

The ERERs recorded their most recent release I Can Do Anything at Key Club in Benton Harbor, which saw release just earlier this year. After having seen the video for the title track, the decision was made to bring the trio in for a studio residency at Assemble Sound. They offer something special to this space because they’re the only rock-based artist in residency. If this Sunday Song is of any evidence, then we’re very excited to see what they have in store for us in the future. - Assemble Sound


"Black Pistol Fire Kick Off Tour In Chicago"

Earlier in the night Detroit band The Erers also put on an amazing performance. Fans and friends drove down from Michigan to see the trio, and after seeing them live, it’s understandable why the long haul was a must. Guitarist and vocalist Matt Riesterer, drummer Christopher Fichter, and bassist Jamison Winterbottom Mosshart thrashed hard. Riesterer and Mosshart (who is reportedly the cousin of Alison Nicole Mosshart of The Kills) whipped their hair in every direction, shredding all over the stage to “Yesterday’s Jam” and “Like a Ghost.” During “Scuba Steve,” the final song of their set, Riesterer jumped off stage and played his guitar in the crowd. People circled around him, banging their heads. These three proved they deserve to be on everyone’s radar. Expect to hear more about The Erers in the future! - Best New Bands


"Garage Rock Trio The ERERs EP "I Can Do Anything""

We don’t need to make comparisons for you to understand the sonic legacy that Detroit rock-trio The Erers find themselves a part of. More than just participating in that legacy, The Erers push it forward. In case you weren’t sure, their 4-song EP I Can Do Anything makes you acutely aware of the fact that the garage rock sound is alive and well in Detroit. The project is a maturation from their previous two projects, Riding The Waves and Tombstone in that it feels much more focused. It’s got a brilliant mix as well. Excited to hear more from these cats. - Assemble Sound
