The Spirit Of The Beehive
The Spirit of the Beehive, whose newest effort, an EP entitled You Are Arrived (But You've Been Cheated) seems more like a well-crafted mixtape of moments in time than a product of polished regurgitation. The title of the record itself suggests one may find themselves exactly where they belong, only to realize something is quite strange at the end of it all. The Summer of 2015 saw The Spirit of the Beehive ambitiously crossing the United States with fellow vibe titans Amanda X, while showcasing material from the aforementioned EP, as well as their debut self-titled LP (both albums were co-released by Ice Age Records and Ranch Records).

Offering a wide sonic palette within every song, pop rock rhythms and sweet melodies supporting dolefully sung detachment pair with atonal, crushingly heavy noise rock crafted perfectly to necessitate repeat listens. The Spirit of the Beehive often alter their songs live to fit the personal experience of the show itself, and such obsession with mood has proven to be one of their most prevalent strengths.

Without the untimely demise of a dachshund companion, Coaster would never have come to be. The band formed in the summer of 2012 when Matt Kissinger and Michael Byrnes wrote a song about the aformentioned wiener dog for a class project. The project quickly added four more songs to the repertoire, along with the guitar playing of Seth Engel and drumming of Tom Graham. Playing under the name Monstertruck, the guys played a few shows around Chicago, but the summer was short-lived and the band took a six month hiatus as Michael travelled through western Europe. Now with the band back together in Chicago, they are ready to pursue the music they love to make. Coaster is currently writing and rehearsing with the intent of recording and performing around Chicago and the surrounding United States.
