Grown Up Avenger Stuff / Bio

A quick description of our sound could be "Hard Indie Rock" - perhaps Queens of the Stone Age mixed with Yeah Yeah Yeahs. What's so special about us? Our music has, even in the most dark intense moments, an embedded smile - a wish that the music touches your heart in a way that makes you feel happy to be alive and good about who you are. In the meantime, we want to get your heart pumping, your feet dancing, and spark a musical love affair with us for life.
Related by blood and the deepest of loyalty, and perhaps unique enough to be the only band of it's type, Grown Up Avenger Stuff combines a deep love for music with a natural talent for building songs that connect with heart and yet are just plain fun to enjoy.
Through an approach of uncompromising high energy live shows and unapologetically growing their fanbase the band has been building popularity and ever reaching toward their goal of "saving the world one song at a time."
In love with the road experience of meeting new people and spreading music, 2013 has seen Grown Up Avenger Stuff touring across 28 US States, including 9 shows at SXSW, and the highly popular Launch Music Festival in Pennsylvania, Celebrate Fairfax! and more in support of their critically acclaimed self produced CD release "Sparkleton".
