Stepdad were formed in a sweltering Chicago apartment in the summer of 2009 when two songwriters turned roommates, Ultramark & Cobrazebra, began writing songs together. The duo relocated to Grand Rapids, Michigan where they finished their first EP called “Ordinaire”. Due to an overwhelmingly positive reaction from the 8 songs contained on this EP, the boys added long time friend and bassist Alex Fives aka Optimus Fives and began performing their Pop jams in front of many a crowd. They are currently writing their debut LP called “Wildlife Pop”. Oh yeah and during all of this the boys also wrote some theme songs for stuff (Axe Cop), shot some music videos, got arrested, & built a rather rabid fanbase.
