The Austin, TX band, Quiet Company has been making a name for themselves nationally for their energetic live shows and their anthemic, dynamic, indie-rock — which critics have called a mix of The Beatles, Death Cab for Cutie, Arcade Fire & Weezer — with attention from the likes of the NY Times, Paste Magazine, NPR, Last Call with Carson Daly, Houston Chronicle, Esquire, Austin Chronicle and more. After an amazing year on the road, with memorable performances at CMJ, NXNE, CBGB Fest, SXSW, ACL Fest and more, Quiet Company is excited to be bringing new material for their highlighted anticipated upcoming album, “Transgressor”on the road.

During SXSW 2014, Quiet Company won “Rock Band of the Year” to add to their previous 10 Austin Music Awards including “Band of the Year,” “Album of the Year,” “Rock Band of the Year,” “Indie Band of the Year” and “Song of the Year,” all won on the strength of their 2011 release, “We Are All Where We Belong.”
After the success of their 2013 album re-release, “A Dead Man on My Back: Shine Honesty Revisited”, the band was chosen to be aRed Bull Sound Select Artist and featured on a segment on NPR’s All Things Considered which rekindled interest in “We Are All Where We Belong” and shot the album up to #7 on the iTunes Rock Charts nearly 2 years after release.
The band kicked off 2014 in the studio writing their their highly anticipated new full-length, “Transgressor“, in Austin, TX with Matt Noveskey (Blue October) produced and mixed by the legendary Tim Palmer (U2, Pearl Jam, The Cure). Never one to write the same album twice, “Transgressor” is a departure from anything Quiet Company has recorded before. With its soaring guitar and fuzzed-out bass lines, the upcoming album really shines with the addition of two new members to the band. New drummer, Evan Smoker’s pulsing rhythms and Bill Gyrta’s melodic synth lines add the perfect compliment to Taylor Muse’s confessional lyrics and cathartic tenor. Evoking comparisons to Foo Fighters, Pavement and Manchester Orchestra, Quiet Company’s “Transgressor” will be leading the way as rock makes a return to form in 2014.
