Blending good 'ol rock and roll with indie rock, Politics As Usual is an indie rock trio from Bergen County, New Jersey (NYC area). Politics features Stephen Berthomieux on guitar and lead vocals, Tom Warren on drums and vocals, and Andrew Kevin on bass. Politics first formed during the summer of '09 after Tom and Stephen broke up their previous band. Now after a few years of making music together, Tom and Stephen recruited Kevin on bass and started recording their first demo during the early fall of '09. The demo consisted of early versions of the songs, From the Ground Up, Trouble Abroad, Taxidermy, and Neil. In early 2010, Politics began recording their debut album, "Trouble". Trouble was completed in June of 2010. It features 9 original songs such as, Trouble Abroad, If I Opened the Door, and Locked in Your Room. The songs were recorded, mixed and mastered by Rick Warren. The album was produced by Politics themselves along with the help of Rick Warren in Harlem, NYC. On September 24th, 2010, "Trouble" was release on iTunes. Politics is currently working on new songs for a future release during the winter or spring of '11.
