The Living Statues
The Living Statues inhaled the sounds of '64 off an LP of A Hard Day's Night and coughed up Jack White's blood onto Cream City brick. Evolving the pop sensibilities of the British Invasion with explosive garage rock textures, "TLS" will crack your bones like empty bottles yet leave you feeling oddly at home as if you've heard them before in a fevered jukebox dream of another lifetime.
Established in 2012 in the heart of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the band is comprised of guitarist/vocalist Tommy Shears, drummer Chris Morales, and bassist Alex Thornburg. On stage they've been compared to "a shot of adrenaline” and described as "edgy, dangerous and unpredictable," yet in their own words, they're just “a rock 'n' roll band from the Great Midwest.”
Their debut single, Our American Cousin, was released in June 2013, preceded by a week of performances in Los Angeles and followed by a string of dates opening for Mayer Hawthorne, The Vaccines, Hanni El Khatib and Best Coast. 2013 was capped off with TLS headlining the WSUM Stage of Madison's annual Halloween Freakfest.
On April 8, 2014 the band released their official debut, Knockin' EP, recorded at the Converse Rubber Tracks studio in Brooklyn, NY.http://www.longlivethestatues.com
