Located in the bowels of central connecticut, the rock band Album tries like hell to combat the pervasive malaise of suburban life by writing songs that are quasi-meaningful, personal, satirical, semi-spiritual and somewhat ironic and performing them far too loud with crackling out of tune electric guitars that overpower nervous vocals.
The band takes specific pride in a lack of desire for sonic perfection and a reckless disregard for their listeners, who are, by and by, imaginary. You, if you are reading this ridiculous exercise in promotional science, are likely their first listener. As such, they love you, even if you are a jerk. The band Album forgives everyone for anything, except their teachers and whomever is elected President of the United States. It is their desire to rescue you from the boredom of listening to formulaic cliche-ridden music by artists who play to feel like rock stars. Album does this by writing formulaic rock songs riddled with cliches that will get stuck in your head, where Album hopes they will stay until your death, which Album hopes will be peaceful.
We were trained by a secret sect of Buddhist monks working in collusion with Taoists and Franciscans, attempting to form a rock band that would bring the truth to maybe ten or twenty kids tired of well dressed beautiful people singing about sex while promoting fast food restaurants and soda companies.
We play live wherever we are invited and we love it profusely. The best moments are when we can hear the vocals in the monitors.

Earlier this week Album drummer, Jim Evon declared Album's newest song to be, "a dynamic kick in the pants". One of Album's many guitarists argued that the song was probably more of a "lackluster kick in the pants". Given the fact that a kick in the pants is pretty exciting stuff by nature. So adding the dynamic adjective might be a little too enthusiastic. Nonetheless, a lackluster kick in the pants can still be quite thrilling. After the disagreement Jim looked sad for while and then replied, "but sometimes less is not more". With this no one could argue. True story.
