PILLARS is an American four piece indie rock band from Indianapolis, Indiana. Prior to inception, all members of PILLARS were working on side projects; mostly bedroom recordings and solo ventures. Conversations of forming a band began as early as 2013, but nothing came to fruition until 2015. Formed in early 2015 by guitarist/vocalist Marc Ertel (former member of Spicolie, The Bowels of Judas, Heathens) and bassist Nason Frizzell (former member of ReVera, Asking Autumn), they quickly recruited Justin Williams (former member of ReVera, Asking Autumn) and Zach Frizzell (former member of Anapparatus). It was fortuitous that everyone was available at the time to get together and try to write something together in January 2015. Since that time, all members immediately committed to this project. Each member comes from various musical pasts and this diversity has fostered a unique sound that blends indie rock, post hardcore, and alternative rock.
In late May of 2015, Carl Byers with Clandestine Arts Recordings captured the first recordings of PILLARS and was released on June 9th, 2015 on iTunes, Spotify, and Bandcamp. Physical copies were screen-printed by Bob Peele with Long Live Design Labs and were sold exclusively through the band's Bandcamp page and at Indy Cd & Vinyl. 100% of all cd sales at Indy CD & Vinyl are being donated to a local non-profit organization, Girls Rock Indy.
Although a serendipitous beginning, PILLARS have become very deliberate in pushing to defy the normal restrictions of a definable genre with renewed vigor and passion.
