Ideamen is DIY; pressing their own merch, acting as their own publicists & recording / mixing their own music & handling their own van repair. Ideamen is currently recording their second full length release, due late summer, 2012 - under the Rotten Records label, an indie out of Los Angeles, CA.
Ideamen’s mission is to give their audience far more than the typical rock show. Ideamen transcends the status quo as they expend every bit of their energy on the stage. The show almost always includes a barrage of balloons & strange mash-ups of cover songs ranging from The Beatles, Radiohead, Mr. Bungle, Pantera & Tori Amos. People seem to love losing themselves in the moment of watching the band perform.
Ideamen are on tour in July 2012 to film a video for their upcoming album. Be sure to follow the band on Facebook & Twitter.

Ideamen formed in 2006 from the ashes of the bands Duct Tape Mustache and Soulvasq. Both shared similar influences (Mr. Bungle, System Of A Down, Ben Folds, Queen) and occasionally shared a stage together. Tim Swanson, Mark Vasquez, Dave Solar, Dan Figurell and Phil Goodrich emerged with a band more mature and accessible than their previous incarnations. Taking elements of 70’s piano pop infused with modern rock, Ideamen created their own unique sound complete with with dual-lead vocalists, a strong keyboard presence, and their trademark, four-part vocal harmonies.
In 2007 Ideamen independently released their first EP, ‘Progress’, which sold quickly throughout the US and around the world with sales in Canada, the UK, Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland, New Zealand, Australia & Finland. After the release of ‘Progress’, Ideamen began touring and tapping into the subculture of the ‘Experimental’ music scene, performing as an opening act for national touring groups such as Baltimore’s Dog Fashion Disco (Rotten Records), Chicago’s Tub Ring (The End Records), Seattle’s Orange Tulip Conspiracy (Mimicry Records) Detroit’s Downtown Brown (DC / Jam Records) & many others. This strong and unique base of bands and fans has brought Ideamen to venues in Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Detroit, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Bloomington, Lexington, Newport, Cleveland, Philadelphia and Baltimore.
Though constantly on the road, Ideamen hasn’t neglected to lay their foundation in Chicago. The band performs often at Double Door, Beat Kitchen, Elbo Room and Reggie’s Rock Club. In recent Chicago performances Ideamen has shared a stage with local favorites such as The Alaya Conscious, Lobster Newberg, Orgin Of Animal and V-Sparks.
Ideamen will be on the road throughout 2010 touring to support their new album “May You Live In Interesting Times”. For more information, please visit www.iloveideamen.com .
