Indie rock band Ludo was formed in Tulsa, OK, in 2003 by Andrew Volpe, Tim Ferrell, Tim Convy, Marshall Fanciullo, and Matt Palermo; the group subsequently based itself in St.
Louis, MO. It was in St. Louis that they recorded their self-titled debut album, released in 2003 on Redbird Records. The EP Broken Bride followed in 2005. In the fall of 2006, Ludo was signed to Island Records, part of the major label Universal Music. Working with producer Matt Wallace (Maroon 5, Train, Faith No More), they recorded their label debut, You're Awful, I Love You, which was released on February 26, 2008, as they toured the Midwest, followed by coast-to-coast dates in March. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi
