Biography: The Dyes are a rock’n’roll trio hailing from Chicago, IL. By infusing ’60s garage rock with infectious ’50s rockabilly, they dish out a melodic, yet uniquely raw sound. Frontwoman Lisa Louise croons, hiccups, and growls her way through heartfelt originals & underground classics. Bassist Jill plucks a sparkle Danelectro to & fro, complementing each twang of guitar with a soulful thump. And with wooden shards in hand, Charlie drives the sound forward at an alarmingly fast and reckless pace! This trio mixes up a punchy cocktail sure to please the pallete of a wide spectrum of music lovers – with a pinch of punk, a slice of surf, a bit o’ blues, & a dash of country… then garnished with femme fatale!
Since their formation in 2006, The Dyes have shared the stage with many luminaries including Los Straitjackets, JD McPherson, Johnny Powers, Reverend Horton Heat, Deke Dickerson, Wayne Hancock, JD Wilkes & The Dirt Daubers, and The Neanderthals to name a few. Releases include their debut album The Dyes (2010), Teenage Dance Party EP (2010), and their limited edition Goo Goo-A-Go-Go EP (2013) on 7″ vinyl. Their upcoming full-length release, STOMP, will feature fuzzy new originals and reverb-drenched rockabilly covers. Stay tuned for the long-awaited STOMP album due to release July 2016!
