Filligar Announces Tour Dates, New LP In The Fall
Filligar is a touring indie rock quartet hailed as “one of the best young bands in America.” The lineup – three Mathias brothers and Casey Gibson – remains unchanged since the band’s early days recording and performing as teenagers in Chicago. Live performance is the band’s lifeblood. They’ve been named one of music’s “Next Big Things” by SPIN Magazine and listed along with Wilco, Delta Spirit, and Heartless Bastards “One of America’s Top 8 Live Acts” (Boston’s RSLmusic blog). The U.S. Department of State recently honored Filligar with an appointment as cultural ambassadors representing American arts and values, and this summer the band will travel on a diplomatic trip to Eastern Europe for performances and outreach programs.
Filligar has produced a prolific catalog of original music, called “a breath of fresh air” by the powerhouse Consequence of Sound” and recognized by the American Society of Composers, Authors, & Publishers (ASCAP) as “of prestige value.” Their latest release The Nerve was nominated for a 2012 Independent Music Award for Best Rock Album.
They have a new LP to be released in the coming months.
