Formed in the fall of 2016, Vassar College’s Spud Cannon originally came together as a group of complete strangers.
Setting out to make their own brand of “music you could dance to at a dormitory basement party”, they quickly developed a repertoire of original material and began playing house parties.
After winning Vassar College’s Battle of the Bands, the band flew out to Los Angeles to cut their debut record in 7 days in guitarist Jackson Lewis’s basement. “Next Time Read the Fine Print” was self-released on October 21st 2017, and became a surprise DIY sleeper hit on the college radio circuit, peaking at #24 in the North American College Radio top 200, as well as featuring an introduction by actor Gary Oldman.
Following their national 'All You Can Eat' U.S. tour via a rented minivan, the band holed up to record their sophomore album. Entitled "Squeeze", it was self-released on November 27th, 2018 and the band once again became a college radio hit, this time peaking at #3 in the North American College Radio top 200, a rare feat for a self-release by an independent college band. However, this time the band also broke out of the college circuit, getting spins on KCRW and SiriusXM as well as sharing stages with Snail Mail and Del Water Gap. The band is still matriculating at Vassar College and now happily owns a minivan they can call their own.
