"We've always pushed the boundaries between rock and dance music," says the Chicago trio's keyboardist Mickey Kellerman. "With this album, there is a juxtaposition between tenses, our band name, Future Rock, and our album name, Long Ago. It symbolizes we're still thinking progressively with synths and electronic elements, but we're also looking back and delving into the art of songwriting."
Over a decade and through five albums, keyboardist Mickey Kellerman, bassist Felix Moreno, and drummer Darren Heitz have worked tirelessly to fuse innovations in electronic dance music with the power and majesty of rock. Throughout this musical journey, this trio of instrumental virtuosos has learned to set aside their egos in service of taut grooves, transcendent electronic textures, and serve-the-song simplicity. Future Rock is as skilled with loops, samples, and music technology as it is adept at playing classic funk and chops-oriented rock. Live, the band has merged stadium rock n' roll excitement with the most cutting edge nightclub theatrics to curate an experience that stimulates all the senses, including the prurient ones.
