Chicago-based indie pop band The Webstirs have released five albums of catchy, clever songs in collaboration with longtime producer Matt Allison (Lawrence Arms/Split Single/Alkaline Trio).
This Fall they will release their sixth album, the self-titled “The Webstirs.” “Yeah, most bands self title their debut album,” said guitarist/vocalist Preston Pisellini, “but not us. The truth is this is a unique opportunity to re-introduce the band to the world.”
Formed in 1994 by Pisellini and childhood friend Mark Winkler (keys/vocals), their musical sensibilities have always been anchored in the strong melodies and rich harmonies of their 60s and 70s rock/pop influences. The current lineup includes former Redwalls drummer Jordan Kozer, who joined in 2009, as well as newest additions of bassist Gregg Juhlin and guitarist/vocalist Doug Bobenhouse. “Gregg comes from a similar place musically and is an amazing addition” says Winkler. “This is definitely our most cohesive lineup. It really shows on the new album and we’re excited for people to hear it.”
“We actually originally started to write a solo Album for Doug,” said Pisellini. ““But after a couple songs, we realized we were actually working on a new Webstirs album”. In addition to guitar and vocals, Bobenhouse also contributed songwriting on the new album. “Adding another songwriter to the mix was challenging at first”, says Winkler. “But ultimately it led to some cool new directions and great three-part harmonies”
