RECENT PRESS & NEWS

Reviving '80s synth- rock and layering it with an ample dose of modern, cheeky attitude, the Information got its point across beautifully in this tightly arranged set that also appeared ready to career wonderfully out of control at any time. A high percentage of great songs kept it all together. One suspects the rather bratty Information knows how good it is, but the group has the stage presence and talent to back it up.

BOSTON GLOBE

 

The Information is a band that is dependably wide awake in the middle of the night, hatching schemes and obsessing.  Their debut LP, Mistakes We Knew We Were Making, provides the dark, frenzied, and futuristic soundtrack for a lifestyle that perpetually races through neon-lit streets at 4 AM.  The jet-engine roar of Stooges-style guitars tangles with Japanese video game synth hooks while vocalist Max Fresen gives you a piece of his insomnia-addled mania.  With a bratty and volatile mix of attitude, chic, and provocation, Mistakes caps a year of nonstop growth for this band.

The Information started 2004 as one of a handful of noteworthy newcomers in the Boston music scene, and closed the year at the head of the pack.  Their following grew with support engagements for national acts like Les Savy Fav, Swervedrivers Adam Franklin, and Dear Leader.  When their two tracks on The Pill’s Tomorrow Never Happened CD began to get commercial airplay, The Information headed back into the studio with a brace of ideas for a new record as visceral as and raw as their manic ambition, while remaining as sleek as and as smart as their collective stage persona.  The resulting album is now in your hands.
