Description

ENGINES is a five piece noisy indie/punk rock band from Chicago. Originally conceived as a solo project for Philadelphia-based songwriter Craig Woods (TOWERS, ELDER, PETER AND CRAIG, TWO PIECE FEST) under the moniker HOT BAGELS, Woods moved to Chicago in 2014 and soon recruited fellow east coast transplants Lee Zickwolf (RIBBONHEAD, COSTANZA) and Jeff Twietmeyer (ALMOST ARGYLE) and Chicago native Justin Wexler (STILLWELL, FORGE AGAIN RECORDS) as permanent fixtures of the band. After two years of performing and writing as a four piece, they decided to add a full-time vocalist to the mix. Emily Jancetic (HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE, LONGDISTANCERUNNER), once lovingly described as the “the Kelly Clarkson of post-hardcore” by All Music Guide, joined in 2016. And thus ENGINES was born.

Obsolete, the debut full length from ENGINES, was recorded over several weekends in late 2016 by Neil Strauch (JOAN OF ARC, OWLS) at Shirk Studios in Chicago, with vocals recorded by Pete Grossman and Andy Nelson at Bricktop Recordings and additional instrumentation recorded by Craig Woods at the band’s Kildare Studios practice space.

ENGINES plays a brand of indie/punk rock that is is loud but not lacking in dynamics. Noisy, but beautiful, Chaotic, but calm. Dissonant, yet melodic. Obsolete is the complete expression of all of these elements spread out over twelve songs that stand alone but also flow into one another over the course
of thirty-six minutes.
