Eisenhower Field Day is a catchy and energetic power-pop trio from Indianapolis, IN. Noah Butler ( Five Year Mission and The Killbot Factory ), Holly Butler, and Phil Kitchel deliver an unprocessed musical hybrid that recalls '80s and '90s underground rock, featuring organic melodies and bright boy/girl harmonies without shying away from loud guitars, cracking drums, and occasionally breakneck tempos. Contemplative, snapshot lyrics ride on a wave of sound that is much bigger than the sum of its parts…like Superchunk and Hüsker Dü running through a field of flowers.
Eisenhower Field Day made their debut in August 2006 with the release of the full-length "Let's Not Tell Lies," paired on CD with the previously unreleased EP, "Our Time in the Colonies." In May 2008 they released "Tyrants and Spies," their second full-length CD, and they're working on a new batch of songs for their third full-length release in 2011. They have been playing regularly in Indianapolis and the midwest for four years.
