The Future Laureates’ last twelve months have been a flurry of activity: they've piqued the interest of Warner/Chappell, Imagem, and 300 Entertainment; their single, "Sinners and Saints" has been named a winner in the International Songwriting Competition (keeping company with Vance Joy and Kimbra, among others); the same single has charted in the “top 10″ nationally at alternative rock specialty radio; they've been crowned as 2015 champions in the Chicago RedEye's Rock N Vote contest; and they've performed at major festivals including SXSW, Summerfest, CMJ Music Marathon, Fashion Meets Music Festival, and the Taste of Chicago (twice). The momentum comes on the heels of their newly released EP, Here and After. With the expertise of GRAMMY-nominated producer, Chris Grainger (Wilco, Switchfoot, Sixpence None the Richer), TFL has finally captured the unabashed energy of their live shows on record.
After six years of extensive touring and airplay on hundreds of college radio stations across North America, The Future Laureates are a band on the rise. They’ve shared crowds with the likes of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, Drive-By Truckers, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, hellogoodbye, Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons, Parachute, Saints of Valory, Punch Brothers, and Dawes. With each of these performances, TFL has been exposed to artists who have achieved greater success and hold themselves to a higher standard than most. The result is a newfound confidence, earned through hard work, persistence, and ultimately, experience. Danny Surico, songwriter and co-frontman of the band, sums up the band’s outlook: “Now, more than ever before, we understand who we are and where we’re going.”
Onward and upward.
