The War on Peace
The War on Peace
The War on Peace is a Chicago-based three piece that fuses pop, electronic, and dance elements into a vibrant, pulsing sonic landscape. Since the band's inception in 2012, the focus has been on bringing a consistent stream of digital sounds to the airwaves. With two full length releases behind them, they continue their collaborative efforts entering into new domains of prolific creation. Their process now translated in a high-energy and engaging live show, the three deliver sounds not soon forgotten.
Minor Characters
Minor Characters is an indie act from Chicago whose music is a mixture of well-crafted songwriting, pop sensibility, and a rare earnestness that's difficult to overlook. The resulting combination is a carefully composed sound with classic pop leanings that ends up sounding both familiar and fresh.

The brainchild of the former folk singer-songwriter, Andrew Pelletier, Minor Characters was born of the desire to grow beyond performing solo, to create a more engaging and further reaching experience. Pelletier, Shelby Pollard (guitar), Adam Wayne (bass), and James Ratke (drums), bonded quickly over their love for Fleetwood Mac, Grizzly Bear, and Blonde Redhead.

Since their inception in early 2011, Minor Characters has released their debut self-titled EP, played sold-out shows with Dinosaur Jr., Craig Finn of The Hold Steady, and Portugal The Man. Along with becoming an important player in the Chicago music scene, Minor Characters was invited to play at SXSW by revered music blog Brooklyn Vegan, as well as Columbia College Chicago's record label, AEMMP Records.

Minor Characters are gearing up for 2014, as they will release an LP in early spring along with subsequent touring. The album was recorded in Fall Creek, WI at April Base Studio with Beau Sorenson and will be mixed in Portland, OR in January. Expect big things from this band in the coming year.
