With burning warm chords and an eclectic sound that borders on avant-garde, the Anniversary, a quintet from Lawrence, Kansas, is trying to solidify itself as a stand-out band. They're on a hectic tour schedule that takes them from their hometown to Texas, New York, California and the Southwest, careful to play a generous mix of songs from Her Majesty, released in 2002 on Vagrant, and new ones that should appear on the upcoming full-length.
With a new album in the works, an upcoming tour, and a successful side-project production company, The Anniversary will continue to define their brand of increasingly experimental awkward, earnest emo pop and to bring it closer to everyone than most bands are willing to.
Despite the self-described "tight schedule," Josh Berwager, Justin Roelofs, Christian Jankowski, James David and Adrianne Verhoeven sat down with Prefix during some downtime before their show at "The Downtown" in Long Island, N.Y. to talk about CMJ, the tour and upcoming projects.
