We are an original 4 piece rock band from the south west suburbs of Chicago. Like any good local band we have a lot of hart and little cash. Unlike most bands however we have trouble pinning down a genera we fit into. From what are fans tell us “Fillabuster” has a sound that echos from mid 80’s underground punk up to early 90’s grunge. Our chord progressions are not intended to resemble any specific brand of music and are lyrics are deeply personal and thought out. We would like to make enough money at this to be able to quit our jobs and devote all our time to creating and performing. But the likely reality of being a struggling musician is we will forever be struggling. So we will continue to create our noise and perform simply for the love of self expression.
Belleisle has been around longer than you think. Originally prescribed by doctors as a topical ointment used to treat gangrene and poison oak, people quickly discovered that Belleisle feels really good when applied liberally to all areas of the body.
“Fans of laid back and uber-melodic indie rock should check out locals Belleisle. Their ever-changing and evolving lineup is at least a sextet, but can, at time, reach ten members as they use a variety of instruments to deliver sweet and soft tunage that aims to sweep the listener off into somewhere dreamy.”
