Support 88Nine And This Artist:
There’s no telling how far you’ll have to run when chasing a dream. You just have to be ready to keep pushing toward the next mile-marker. While some artists may dive into the music industry unprepared for the long road ahead, the guys of the Milwaukee-based band Vinyl Theatre are wholeheartedly dedicated to pushing toward the finish line.
Together, Keegan, Josh, Nick, and Chris have found a strong sense of camaraderie in music and each other, writing and performing as a cohesive unit. In one another, they have found balance, chemistry, and an intense and unwavering bond. And in music, they have found something worth fighting for, something with no limit or expiration date, something they believe in. Even in their title, “Vinyl Theatre”, the guys have strategically placed elements of the band’s dedication. Not only evoking a feel that fits their style, the name emphasizes musicianship and performance, and serves as a reminder to the band of their fans, who the band says they “ultimately do this for, on and off the stage.”
Claiming influences such as Two Door Cinema Club, The Killers, The Shins, and Death Cab For Cutie, Vinyl Theatre has taken what they’ve learned from these groups with a grain of salt, making a conscious effort to focus on their personal sound and progression being distinctly their own and separate from their influences. The band defines their music as modern indie rock with elements of electronica and pop, a sound that is “unique and differentiating.” Marked with bright synths, catchy hooks, lush vocal harmonies, and loud guitars, and described by critics as “mellowly loud”, “pop-savvy”, and “delightfully dancy”, Vinyl Theatre has a powerful sound all their own that has been well-received by fans and critics alike.
Having performed at venues and events such as Shank Hall, Bastille Days, and Yellow Phone Music Conference in Milwaukee, and Beat Kitchen and MOBfest in Chicago, the young group has had a fair amount of exposure to various fan bases in the past year. Vinyl Theatre has also opened for national touring acts twenty-one pilots, Royal Teeth, Parade of Lights, Makeshift Prodigy, Chappo, Five Knives, and Quiet Company. They have been featured on websites such as Frontiers LA, MadeLoud, JSOnline, and Milwaukee’s own Breaking and Entering as band of the month. Vinyl Theatre’s single “I Need You Here” was world premiered on California’s KX 93.5FM in Laguna Beach where their music is in regular rotation. Their music is also currently receiving heavy airplay in Europe, Milwaukee’s own FM 102.1 and WMUR, Marquette University Radio.
Their soon to be released EP, “Chromatic”, is not only a fun and upbeat album but a record to date of how the band feels they have grown and progressed in the year since their official start - from honing their art of songwriting, to continually strengthening their sound, to developing a powerful live show. With the strong and positive reception of “I Need You Here”, the group has high hopes for the album’s success and continued positive fan reception, believing their fans will hear their heart and commitment in every note. They hope their EP and unrelenting diligence will lead to more exposure and added momentum, propelling them through mile after mile, each one better than the last.
As of August 19th 2014, the band announced they had joined the Fueled By Ramen family. Their first full length album, "Electrogram" will be released the 23rd of September. While this album includes some of their songs from "Chromatic", there are also a bunch of new songs. They will also be opening for Twenty One Pilots for their upcoming "Quiet is Violent" tour.
