THE KICKBACK enters the front ranks of contemporary rock ‘n’ roll with their sophomore album WEDDINGS & FUNERALS (Jullian Records). Produced by Dennis Herring (Modest Mouse, Elvis Costello, WAVVES) it is a furious, exhilarating, and deeply emotional collection that captures the roller coaster of shared human experiences that bring us together. Comprised of Billy Yost (guitar), Jonny Ifergan (guitar), and Dan Leu (bass), Chicago-based The Kickback tour hard as one of the best live acts out there, lighting it up with a litany of great songs, countless headline shows, festival showcases, and gigs alongside such diverse peers as Here We Go Magic, Manic Street Preachers, Miracle Legion, Tokyo Police Club, and Bush.
