Members: Laura, Bill
In 2004 The New Dress began writing songs that reflected their shared love for whoa-oh-ohs and a general concern for the state-of-things, inspired by socially conscious punk bands as well as folk artists. Playing with the bands they love (Dear Tonight, Nakatomi Plaza, The Measure, Against Me!, The Queers, Love or Perish-- to name a few) meant standing out a bit, and trying to appeal to punk rock and hardcore fans with a single guitar and a couple of voices.
Its 2007 and the war rages on...the need for whoa-oh-oh's has never been greater. The New Dress is proud to make their small contribution with their debut full length on Red Leader Records, "Where Our Failures Are," available this summer. They will be on tour to promote the record and support Red Leader sibling, Attica! Attica! So be sure to check out updated tour info.
the New Dress is bill and laura. nerves and positivity.
