BioSince Lying In States' inception in 1999, these virile young men have worked hard to unclog the stopped-up Chicago music scene by developing a dynamic sound and side-stepping blasé categorization. Fusing danceable, dirty rhythms with shadowy, swerving electronics and infectiously frenetic hooks, Lying In States nestles itself between the classic rock of the '70s, the naked noise of the '80s and the stepped up sound of the '90s by constructing a compelling clamor that sticks to your brain.
Lying In States has played and conspired with Dead Meadow, Hot Hot Heat, Rainer Maria, Rye Coalition, Cursive, Denali, the Watchers and the Swords Project, amongst others. Many have born witness to the spectacle and testified that Lying In States' live set is not to be missed. They play with a primal energy as if on a mission to leave witnesses dumbfounded.
