The Kickback (Chicago)
When singer/guitarist Billy Yost and his drumming brother Danny moved to Chicago from South Dakota in 2009 looking to get a new band going, they turned to Craigslist to find people to play with. Adding Eamonn Donnelly (bass) and Jonny Ifergan (guitar) to the fold, the band began to tour regularly, playing shows with Here We Go Magic, White Rabbits, Tapes ‘n Tapes and other Indie Rock faves and developing a strong reputation as a live band, particularly in their new hometown. The Kickback released the Kill Fee EP last year and the band is currently prepping its debut album, tentatively titled Sorry All Over the Place. As a preview, the group released the stellar single “Please Hurt.”
