Stepdad Add Shows
|Stepdad was formed in a sweltering Chicago apartment in the summer of 2009 when two songwriters turned roommates, ultramark and Ryan McCarthy, began writing songs together.
The duo relocated to Grand Rapids, Michigan, where they finished their first EP called Ordinaire. Due to an overwhelmingly positive reaction from the 8 songs contained on this EP, the boys added long time friend and bassist Alex Fives and drummer Jeremy Malvin, and began performing their pop jams in front of many a crowd. Oh yeah and during all of this the boys also wrote some theme songs for stuff (Axe Cop), shot some music videos, got arrested, & built a rather rabid fanbase.
Out September 6th, 2011, this remastered bonus edition of the previously self-released debut EP will resurface with a proper national release on Quite Scientific. With an additional two bonus tracks “Find Love” and “Magic Stones” this 10 track EP is wallop of a first offering by the buzz gathering new comers Stepdad.
