"The Retrogrades"

"You can't make this kind of music without a shitload of sincerity, and these guys have it in spades." - Noise Magazine

"They Cast Quite The Spell"

The Retrogrades continued the night with a wonderful performance. Songs "Nebulun 6" and "Pay Your Bills" were definite hits, but nothing compared to the beautifully and intense "Breatheout." Lead singer, Alex Brewer has a stunning voice despite his young age. - The Comment


Artificial People (11 songs)
MIU? (8 songs)
Smoke Filled House (3 Songs)
Secret Methods (2 songs)



The Retrogrades began in some form or another in the summer of 2003. Guitarist Sam Lowney and drummer Thomas Abend started a garage band and enlisted the help of then Serotonin guitarist, Ben Brewer. The group practiced occasionally until Thomas got into home-studio equipment, which focused the group on writing and recording original songs.Ben's Brother Alex joined on Vocals, Jim Pearse on Bass and Marshall Frye on Keyboards and the group released their debut album, the indipendantly released "Artificial People" in February of 2005. In August of 2006, after Frye and Pearse had moved on, the group released an EP "MIU?" enlisting Jason Tucker to help them with live duties. Tucker joined the group permenantly on Bass in the May of 2007 and Kira Lafosse-Baker joined on keyboards in June of 2007. The band released two singles over the summer of 2007, one, the Smoke Filled House single containing rerecordings of old tracks and another Secret Methods EP featuring two new tracks.
