Anthem In is an indie rock band formed in Brooklyn, New York in 2006. The band initially started as the solo recoding project of Allen Orr. In 2007 Allen reconnected with old friend and songwriter, Ashley Proffitt. Allen had a bunch of songs, Ashley had a Wurlitzer and one thing led to another.
Keith Vogelsong (The Blue Hour) had recently moved to New York to relocate the record label he runs, Goodnight Records. Five minutes after he got off the plane, Ashley nabbed him as Anthem In’s bassist. Drummer Paul Petitto was procured by theft from the band he was playing with at the time, Russian Vogue. Rob Miller had just moved to New York from Austin where he was writing his own solo material. Allen asked him to come on as lead guitarist, and Anthem In was complete.
Anthem In released it's debut self-titled album in June of 2008 on Quiet/Loud Records. The album entered the CMJ charts at #118 and continued to chart at stations across the country for 13 consecutive weeks. In April of 2008 the band filmed a video for the song "Down" with director Will Joines. The video debuted on both Fuse and MTV in the fall of 2008.
Recording was completed on "The Cloudbusting EP" in April of 2009 and features a cover of Kate Bush's 1985 hit "Cloudbusting". Four other original Anthem In songs are included on the EP and will be released on Quiet/Loud Records in July of 2009.
