Chicagoist update on Anatomy of Habit

Thanks to Jon Graef at Chicagoist for continuing to keep his eyes and ears on us!

From: Chicagoist's Best Local Bands To Watch In 2013

An amalgam of expert provocateurs and workman from decades of Chicago underground rock and metal music, Anatomy of Habit’s music simply defies categorization. But we tried to describe it recently, saying “this is a group that knows how to hold listener attention … lulling [listeners] into gothic ambiance one minute, and then snapping them out of it with whiplash-inducing fury on loan from metal and hardcore the next…” The band just released a compendium CD of the group’s previously released EP and LP. They’ve just finished up recording album number two, which saw Tortoise’s John McEntire playing the drums. Peruse their Bandcamp to hear for yourself, but give yourself plenty of time. Average song length is about 10 minutes. - Jon Graef
