Indie Rock Band Built To Spill Coming To The State Theatre

Indie rock fans get excited: The State Theatre announced the band Built to Spill will be performing September 17 at 8 p.m.

Considered one of the leading indie rock bands in America today, the group has performed at several music festivals including Lollapalooza, South by Southwest, and the Pitchfork Music Festival. They’ve even shared the stage with several well-known musical acts including Yo La Tengo, Kings of Leon, The Jesus Lizard, and more.

The show comes off the heels of their new studio album “Untethered Moon,” which was released back in April. Previous to “Untethered Moon” the band hadn’t produced any music since their 2006 album, “There Is No Enemy.” Check out “Living Zoo” from their latest album.

 

After the release of their 2006 album the band underwent some troubles. In 2012 the bands bassist and drummer quit, leaving Doug Martsch, Built to Spill’s leader, to finish recording an album with half of the members. Since then the positions were filled by two longtime musical friends of Martsch, who was quoted saying the new energy is “magical.”

Members of The State Theatre have the chance to purchase tickets now, and remaining tickets will be available to the public on June 19. Tickets are $25. For more information or to get your tickets visit The State Theatre’s website.
