The Plaintiffs

The Plaintiffs

BandRock

Steve Earle meets Roy Loney on an elevator and they have a love child while toasting Andy Kaufman. Songs full of stories to write home about. Guitars that’ll peel your paint. A little bit of heartbreak when you need it. And a wound-up, locked-down performance style you’ll be sure to stand up for.

Biography

From pulse-pounding rock to sing-along dementia, Your Friends The Plaintiffs™ bring the goods. Songs full of stories to write home about. Guitars that’ll peel your paint. A little bit of heartbreak when you need it. And a wound-up, locked-down performance style you’ll be sure to stand up for.

Think about it: this is a band that just finished an album with Jack Endino, but sometimes hosts Vicious Haiku contests with Japanese sex-toy prizes. The Flawed Five that brought you La Familia, 2006’s Career Records violence-across-America release. And the ONLY people you can count on to deliver the three-guitar onslaught of “Idiot Ride”, a heartbreaking ballad, and a trombone and calliope-driven ode to sheer survival – all in the same set.

You got your guitars, some keyboards, and the legendary vocals and songwriting of Joey Kline. Steve Earle meets Roy Loney on an elevator and they have a love child while toasting Andy Kaufman. Something like that. It’ll keep you awake, for sure, no matter what you’ve taken, and 98.7% come back for more.
