Band/DJ Information

Music Style:
    Band: Yes
    Price Range: Unknown
    Environment: Experimental Indie Rock from twenty somethings out of the Midwest. Please contact us and let us know what you think. All feedback is welcome: The current state of Indie Rock is bloated with a mass of identical bands, all repeating the same uninspired, generic sound. It is from this jaded, stagnant scene that a new group of bands will emerge, a modern collective redefining the sound of what rock music can potentially be and become. It is from this second group that The Virgin Spring has manifest from. Conceived in 2001, in Chicago, Illinois, The Virgin Spring (formerly known as Switchblade Romance) has worked tirelessly to constantly evolve and perfect their sound. Blending atmospheric tones of synthesizers and electronic drum machines with effect-laden guitars, layered cellos, and a rounded out rhythm section with bass guitar and drums. Frontman Rick Portillo has been writing songs since the age of twelve. His lyrics read more like poetry, mixing elements of surrealism with universal emotions everyone has felt. Sharing vocal duties with both male and female band members, they create beautiful vocal harmonies together. Their songs are meticulously crafted, with brilliant precision. Their ability to incorporate new sounds and song structures while continuing to have mass appeal goes beyond measurement. These are songs that will mesmerize the listener on an album as well as on the stage. Its been the live show of The Virgin Spring that has won audiences over across the country. Their energetic stage presence combined with the swirling sounds of their music encapsulates the listener, creating a loyal fan base wherever they play. The Virgin Spring has already toured the U.S. several times, playing with such emo, punk, and indie rock acts as: Motion City Soundtrack (Epitaph), Spitalfield (Victory), Fallout Boy (Island / Fueled by Ramen), Steel Train (Drive-Thru), The Reunion Show (Victory), Anti-Freeze (Kung-Fu), Pilot to Gunner (Arena Rock / G
