"I'm not that old but I'm getting pretty wise" — a sentiment within the early seconds of The Orwells' new album, Disgraceland, that pretty much sums up the eleven tracks that follow it. Two years have passed since the band emerged from their boring Chicago suburb as five high schoolers hellbent on reminding the world that American rock & roll is still alive. A lot has happened since then for The Orwells. They've slain and sweated on audiences around the world, recorded with their favorite contemporary producers, shared the stage with childhood heroes, raked in accolades from distinguished publications and even had David Letterman begging them for more. And now, as they release their irresistibly raucous yet masterfully architected Disgraceland on Canvasback Music, The Orwells are getting pretty wise.
"The Orwells tap into [a] primal energy… in which youthful abandon and sloppiness are touchstones — and know their way around a nuttily repetitive hook." – SPIN
"The best new live band in America" – NME
The Symposium is a Chicago based band comprised of four members. There’s Sam: guitarist - the pensive trailblazer. Charlie: singer - the essential jokester. Benny: bassist - the debonair Cuban. Jamie: drummer - the industrious ruffian. They wail, they rail, and they will prevail. They are… The Symposium.
Post Animal is a rock & roll band from Chicago.
