Probably Vampires were a Chicago-based, 5-piece, 60's-influenced indie pop band that incorporated staples of the golden age of pop rock music -warm, fuzzy guitars, colorful vocal harmonies, searing organs and electric pianos, and playfully syncopated drums and bass- and injects those staples with an appetite for modern musical daring that made them sound at once comfortably familiar and startlingly audacious.Read More...
In their five years together, Probably Vampires built their reputation on an infamously bombastic live-show and a knack for the kind of hooks on which acts as assorted as The Zombies, The Rolling Stones, Elvis Costello, Fountains of Wayne, and Quasi have rested their reputations. Their self-released full-length album, Dang!, reflected the band's insatiable flirtation with early pop sub-genres, offering 14 unique tracks of classic rock and roll, blues-rock, soul/r&b, shoegaze, and 60's pop. Having played shows tirelessly throughout Chicago, the Midwest, the East Coast, and Canada in support of bands such as Phantom Planet, Headlights, Harvey Danger, Pattern is Movement, and The Redwalls, Probably Vampires built a solid buzz on their sheer zeal for performing and mature command of pop structures.
