Filligar – The new sound of Rock N Roll

Fresh off a national tour with the Counting Crows and a Lollapalooza kick-off show August 1 at Metro in Chicago with Alabama Shakes, the Chi-Town bred brothers of Filligar are coming to Rock the Rockies. This quartet is formed by the three Mathias brothers –Johnny, Pete and Teddy– and their lifelong friend Casey Gibson. So three brothers with boyish good looks,  songs with catchy hooks and a rapidly rising star.  These guys aren’t pumping out saccharine pop, but real classic American rock and roll.  They are young and fresh, but with a gritty edge that hints at the blues.  No wonder they’re drawing comparisons to early Rolling Stones.
The music world has taken note of Filligar’s young yet mature sound and careful songwriting (almost vintage in it’s flare…these guys are bringing back the bridge). Heavy hitters The Black Keys and My Morning Jacket, and most recentl, the Counting Crows, have all given the nod and brought Filligar on tour as a supporting act.
Now the fellas of Filligar are hitting the road with their energetic live show, dubbed one of the best in the country by popular live music blog RSL, in support of their LP The Nerve.  Indicative of the band’s  impact, .The Nerve was nominated for Best Rock Album at this year’s Independent Music Awards. You can download The Nerve for free on their site.
If you’re in Aspen this week, you’re gonna want to check out these talented gents at the Belly Up on Monday August 13th!  Otherwise, you can check out the rest of their tour dates and other band news on their Facebook page or  Check out Music and Videos on their website.
