Startup four-piece Releaser has started performing ahead of their debut record. Put it on your short list. The record too.
There are certainly positives to take from traversing the Chicago rock landscape from band to band. The experience gained. Living on stage. Ever honing one’s chops. But almost every band dissolves. Not because the songs suck – that part’s up to you. No, it’s a vibe issue. The way people make stuff together. In any work – in any life. And it’s the right people and the right fit that have eluded these four guys all that time.
Stephen, Andre, Duane and Jeremy saw in each other the pieces that had been missing. With a different atmosphere of talent and trust, a new culture revealed itself: like-minded and hardworking, where the only band leader is the song.
Releaser met and assembled with the common objective to deliver you the highest quality songwriting and live performances that their decades of collective grind and know-how could muster. The music is astute and effective. The lyrical content is honest – something too many artists have abandoned in favor of sounding important. The vocals and melodies are the reason you check out new music. These guys will have you singing in your head at work like a pro.
This is a band where you’ll be driving around and your friends ask where you found them. This is a band you’ll go to when you’ve had a few. When the going’s rough and the encore ain’t enough, this is the band. Releaser.
