A lil' about the band...

The Dyes are a raw rock'n'roll trio hailing from Chicago, IL. Often coined as 'garageabilly', they've dipped into a phonic realm fueled by infectious '50s and '60s oldies, approached with an irreverence and vigor that is anything but retro. Frontwomen Lisa and Jill formed the group as teens, then maintained the same line-up since the addition of Charlie back in '06.  The Dyes've had the pleasure to travel around the great US of A a time or two, sharing bills with roots rock luminaries including Johnny Powers, Reverend Horton Heat, JD McPherson, Los Straitjackets, and too many other friends to name!

Their last single "Liza Jane" was featured on Bloodshot Records' (RIP) 25th Anniversary Comp Too Late to Pray: Defiant Chicago Rootsalongside 21 other Chi-town artists running the spectrum of classic country, bluegrass, rockabilly, folk, and rock. Described as "Cramps-and-Flat Duo Jets-fearing garage power trio spins a sleazy, lo-fi psychobilly take on a pop standard that became David Bowie’s first recorded single."
