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 Jill & Lisa formed the group as teens and have maintained the same line-up since the addition of Charlie in '06.  The band has since had the pleasure traveling around the great US of A, sharing bills with roots rock luminaries including Johnny Powers, Reverend Horton Heat, JD McPherson, and Los Straitjackets, to name a few!

Their latest single "Liza Jane" is featured on Bloodshot Records' 25th Anniversary Compilation Too Late to Pray: Defiant Chicago Roots, including 21 other Chicago artists running the spectrum of classic country, bluegrass, rockabilly, folk, and rock-n-roll. The Dyes' cover is 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." ~ Give it a spin ~
