Earworms Presents: Sky Road Fly, Iron-59, Ideamen, Kill Junior
Friday July 26 2013
Earworms Productions is super stoked to welcome IDEAMEN to Madison!!
Ideamen, from Chicago's south side, are an intense musical experience, best seen live to appreciate. This piano driven act has toured throughout much of the U.S., growing their fan base & putting on a show that turns 1st time spectators into instant fans. Their first two releases, the currently out of print EP "Progress" & "May You Live In Interesting Times" are considered staples in the experimental post rock scene.
Ideamen is DIY; pressing their own merch, acting as their own publicists & recording / mixing their own music & handling their own van repair. Ideamen is currently recording their second full length release, due in Spring of 2013 - under the Rotten Records label, an indie out of Los Angeles, CA.
Ideamen's mission is to give their audience far more than the typical rock show. Ideamen transcends the status quo as they expend every bit of their energy on the stage. The show almost always includes a barrage of balloons & strange mash-ups of cover songs ranging from The Beatles, Radiohead, Mr. Bungle, Pantera & Tori Amos. People seem to love losing themselves in the moment of watching the band perform.

SKY ROAD FLY (Madison)
Sky Road Fly is a four-piece rock band from Madison, WI. They combine the groove consciousness of 1972, the musical curiosity of the mid-80's underground, and the fierce sounds and energy of the early 90's, to create a unique sound that commands attention.
Formed in late 2008 by long-time musical conspirators, Robert Halstead (guitar/vox) and Kyle Sturtevant (drums), with musician Ben Jarosh (guitar/vox), Sky Road Fly has been a jamming, writing, and recording machine. Dustin Harmon (bass/vox) took notice and enlisted himself to end the band's cycle of short-term bass players.
After Kyle left for the west coast in late 2010, David Payne filled in on the skins and has been hittin' 'em ever since. 6 solid weeks of practice and the foursome has hit the ground rocking.
Finally, Sky Road Fly is ready to set the stage on fire and send a clear message through the smoke signals. Originality is not dead for rock music. Not for this band. Not for you. Get swept away in their guitar fury, pounded by their rhythm section, and then soothed as the band harnesses magical dynamics to heal you, only to tear you apart again to remind you that you're alive.
