Earnest power-pop from members of Dowsing & Into It. Over It.
After over a decade in touring punk band, The Swellers, drummer Jonathan Diener moves from the back of the stage to the front. The songs being written at the time were for nothing more than self-medicating and moving on from the band's breakup, but eventually the project was all about leaving your comfort zone and doing what you've always wanted to do with no expectations. Doing it for fun again.
THE REAGANOMICS (members of Ryans Hope)
The 3 members of Ryans Hope put their heads together and wrote 20 stripped down pop punk songs in the summer of 2009. Everyone shares lead vocals, everyone writes about whatever they want, whether it's a song about Buckcherry, or making fun of indecisive scenesters, anything goes. Eddie was recruited to drum so Greg could get his hands on the singer/guitarist position. The emphasis is having a good time, and taking nothing seriously. Sloppy punk rock from 4 sloppy dudes.
We are a three-piece that formed in Chicago in 2008 and have since been playing various venues in the city proper. Our live performance is honest and straightforward; where excess vocals and effects lack we make up for in technicality and intensity. Most of our influences draw from 60's and 80's rock, but our sound lies on a foundation of Metal, Punk and New Wave; all of which Ryan and Justin have been experimenting with since middle-school. Lindsey on the other hand provides a dramatic pop element that brings accessibility to the overall sound, striking an essential contrast that most noise and grind bands tend to neglect.
