– Austin-based Indie Rock outfit, Quiet Company, have announced a handful of U.S. tour dates and plans to head back into the studio to record a new full-length record in the coming year. Coming off a successful trip to Toronto’s NXNE Festival, the band will be teasing their new material to live audiences on the road, with performances at upcoming festivals including YES, INDEED! (Houston, TX), OTHERFEST (Cleveland, MS), Waco Cultural Arts Fest (Waco, TX) and both CMJ and CBGB Festivals in New York City. A household name in Texas, Quiet Company has been making a name for themselves nationally for their energetic live shows and anthemic, dynamic 

“Arcade Fire meets Weezer” sound. For a full list of upcoming tour dates and more information, check out: http://www.quietcompanymusic.com/shows.

 

Formed in 2005, Taylor Muse (guitar/vocals) and his band mates have spent much of their time in increasingly rarefied air; playing late night talk shows (Carson Daly), performing at the Austin City Limits Festival, setting a record crowd for radio station KGSR’s Blues On The Green outdoor concert series, recording a session in the original studio of the iconic “Austin City Limits” television show, winning a record-shattering 10 Austin Music Awards and receiving glowing reviews for the late-2011 release We Are All Where We Belong. Mixed by legendary engineer Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, U2, The Cure), We Are All Where We Belong is a startlingly personal album that finds Muse – backed by Tommy Blank (Guitar), Matt Parmenter (Bass), Jeff Weathers (Drums) and Cody Ackors (Trombone) – growing up and questioning the religious beliefs that underpinned the band’s early work.

 

Quiet Company partnered with Grooveshark’s Artist Development Project for the release of We Are All Where We Belong, which helped spread their infectious tunes across the globe at an unprecedented speed.The massive success of their Grooveshark partnership grabbed the attention of influential Tech sites including Digital Trends and Tech Dirt, who marveled at the early adopting band’s ability to embrace new platforms and use them to their own advantage. Tech Dirt even published a Case Study about partnership. In 2012, their single,“You, Me & Boatman,” was quickly added to over 30 college radio stations across the country -landing the band attention during SXSW from critical tastemakers including NPR and Time Magazine, and earning them 10 Austin Music Awards including Band of The Year, Album of The Year, Rock Band of The Year, Indie Band of The Year and Song of The Year.

 

Quiet Company’s original songs have been featured in national television placements on series including Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Real World New Orleans, Royal Pains, My Generation, Hart of Dixie, a PGA Tour commercial, and three of their tracks can be found on the Rockband Network for both Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. The band also re-recorded their song, “You, Me & the Boatman” in the “Simlish” language, which is featured in Sims 3: Showtime. The band’s YouTube has skyrocketed to over 1.5 million views, earning the coveted selection as a Red Bull Sound Select Artist in 2013. Learn more here.

Quiet Company’s explosive live show is notable both for the sheer energy of the band and the fact that each member is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, making it a much simpler task to bring their complex studio arrangements to the stage in a fresh, exciting way.
