The best kept secret in music


This band has no press


Our music has been on two compilation cds arranged by Milkboy Recording and L-Cast Records. Our first EP, “A Dent in my Mind,” was released in Fall 2007. Our second EP will be released in June 2008. Our songs, "Open Our Eyes," "Berzerkeley," and "Cut Back the Lawn," stream daily on Chester County Internet Radio.


Feeling a bit camera shy


The Courage Pills play rock and roll music; It’s rock and roll in the sense that the songs are fresh and original, loud and raucous, yet still utilize the tones and hooks that people have loved in music for years. Their lyrics and delivery are suggestive of an overactive social consciousness coupled with poetic helplessness. With punk rock undertones and classical finesse, the Courage Pills successfully mix and match a strange and unique span of musical styles.
The members hail from West Chester, PA, half of which attend W.C.U., and have assembled a significant following in the two years they’ve been together. They have played a variety of shows in town including Spence Café, Rex’s Bar, and a benefit for Darfur at the popular venue, 15 North. They’ve also played at Albright College in an effort to raise funds for Hurricane Katrina and at Milkboy Coffee to support victims of the Virginia Tech tragedy, the latter of which was featured on the local news. The Courage Pills have also played at the Reading Oktoberfest and were the featured band at Temple University’s 2007 senior art exhibition. Additional Philadelphia venues include The Underground and Tritone.
The Courage Pills’ lead guitarist, Michael Shramm, was featured in the March 2007 issue of Guitar Player magazine for his original song, “Dakota.”
