The Upright Animals are a St. Louis based rock group that was formed in 2005 as a songwriting project but quickly became a band. Brothers Jim and Ben Peters on guitars, step-brother Jaime Irwin on vocals, Bill Newmann on the bass, and Moises Padilla on the skins form the band. They put out a 3-song EP in October of 2005, followed by the release of “Scams” - the full-length debut album - in September of 2006.

“Scams” was recorded and mixed in St. Louis, but mastered in Phoenix, AZ by Roger Seibel (Modest Mouse, Death Cab, Interpol, Tortoise, Liz Phair, etc). The band plays regularly at venues such as Mississippi Nights, The Pagaent, and Blueberry Hill, both as headliners and opening for acts such as Chuck Berry and Ozomatli.

The band’s sound combines rock, pop, and other sounds.

    you guys gave me a copy of "Carnivore City" outside of the Rx Bandits show, and I must say I usually just throw away random samplers, but something intrigued me about you guys, and I must say your ep is pretty good
