More Info

Chicago-based Post Animal are a band of brothers. Though they formed in 2014 and just began touring in 2017, their affinity for slick riffs, pop hooks, and psychedelic tendencies join them in a bond much tighter than their years suggest. Initially formed when childhood friends, bassist Dalton Allison and guitarist Matt Williams, met keyboardist and guitarist Jake Hirshland, the bands sound began to take shape when the three enlisted some more pals from both the Chicago music scene and through their time working at local burger joints. Rounding out the bands lineup, Post Animal is completed by drummer Wesley Toledo and guitarists Javi Reyes and Joe Keery. Like most bands in Chicagos inclusive music community, Post Animal got their start playing DIY basements and small rock clubs. With their wavy and warped first project 2015s Post Animal Perform The Most Curious Water Activities EP and then 2016s memorable singles collection The Garden Series, the band showcased mesmerizing and infectious pop melodies. Between their impressive early releases and their wild live shows which feature the band members sharing lead vocal duties, Post Animal have unquestionably solidified themselves as one of Chicagos most exciting up-and-coming acts. Having taken that intensity across the country, touring with bands like Twin Peaks, Wavves, White Reaper, and more, Post Animal have found they are happiest when playing to a room full of fellow music-lovers. As a result, they are road tested and stronger than ever.The Chicagoans debut full-length When I Think Of You In A Castle, out 4/20 via Polyvinyl, is the product of six friends creating music they love, even if the circumstances werent always in their favor. Before this album, we werent sure what the future of the band was going to look like. I was considering moving to Los Angeles and Joe [Keery] was off filming Stranger Things. We didnt know where we were all going but we knew we wanted to make an album with all of us in the same room, explains Toledo. Being the first time all Post Animal members recorded together, the albums collaborative spirit is more-than-evident throughout its 10 carefully curated tracks. Even Keery, whos no longer an active touring member of the band due to his skyrocketing acting career, was integral to the albums inception.
