Biography

There are two bands named Surrogate:

1- Formed in the small Northern California town of Chico in 2007, Surrogate draws their inspiration from the shoegaze and introspective indie bands of the 90s and 2000s, injecting a healthy amount of self-deprecation and classic melodic sensibility for an intelligent take on the standard guitar-driven alternative rock sound. After releasing two self-produced full lengths on Tooth & Nail/EMI the band – vocalist/guitarist Chris Keene, guitarist Michael Lee, bass player Daniel Taylor, and keyboardist Daniel Martin – struck out entirely on their own for 2011′s Diamond and Pearls EP and never looked back.

For their 4th studio record, Post-Heroic, the band took their new-found self-sufficiency to new levels, moving into a dilapidated studio deep in the heart of their hometown’s college ghetto for two years of writing, recording, drinking cheap beer, and taking their sweet ass time. Slimmed down to a four-piece, Post-Heroic found all four members taking their turn manning the drum set, but rather than sounding scattered, the resulting 10 songs showcase the band’s penchant for incorporating disparate influences – the straightforward indie pop of “Lovers”, the post-rock ambiance of “Accolades” or the bluesy, stripped-down burn of “Battleground, Washington” – for a focused, multifaceted sound.

Whatever the “hot” new sound may be, Surrogate is pretty sure that they’re not it. And that’s OK. They’ll just be holed up in their carpet-walled control room, following their muse wherever it takes them. At least until dinner time.
