WORKOUT MUSIC | http://www.purevolume.com/workoutmusic
Workout Music formed in the spring of 2009 when a meeting of the minds occurred on the stoop of our Chicago apartment. We had 3 musicians all living under one roof and we were all dying to play Chicago venues. Instead of just jumping right into a band, we talked at great length about the direction we would want this project to go: we knew we wanted a dance-rock sound, combined with high energy, a party-like atmosphere in the audience, and to create music that people truly wanted to listen too. After about a month of playing we decided to add keys and an additional guitar and we never looked back. It just so happens that each person in the band is connected too. We have all played in various bands together in the past, some went to the same high-school, some went to the same college, and now we are: Workout Music.
The music we play is derived from our musical influences growing up mixed with the yearning for something different. Old mixed with new. Pearl Jam mixed with RX Bandits. Stone Temple Pilots mixed with Death from Above. Red Hot Chili Peppers mixed with Daft Punk. We wanted to create a sound that was fun, lively, dancey and most importantly catchy. Every song we write we ask ourselves, would we want to listen to this? Would we buy this single? Does this song stand out? And if we answer yes, yes, yes: then we finish the song.
We have a new 8 song demo that will be coming out in June that is being recorded at IV Lab Studios. In early 2010 we had won the WGN Breakthrough Band competition and the studio time is part of the prize. Workout Music is an in your face, high energy experience that uses many different stage props and party themes that allow us to separate ourselves from the pack. We thrive on out of the ordinary stage shows and catchy lyrics and licks. WOM has been playing all over the Chicago land area, such places include: the cobra lounge, the elbo room, goose island, lasalle power co., the cubby bear, jj kelly’s, the coach room, double door, Reggie’s, Martyr’s, the taste of Chicago, and many more.
