Indie folk-rock quartet Fierce Bad Rabbit crafts a unique soundscape that spans pop-infused tunes to gritty rock roots. Showcasing strong and innovative songwriting and poignant lyrics, FBR blends four seasoned musical talents on their latest release, "LIVING ASLEEP" (2014). Comprised of core members, Chris Anderson (lead vocals, guitar), from Fort Collins, CO and now residing in Boston, Alana Rolfe (viola, vocals) from Lamoni, Iowa, Max Barcelow (drums/percussion/vocals) from Edina, MN, and Dayton Hicks (bass guitar), from Dothan, Alabama, the band’s sound is reminiscent of Arcade Fire, Delta Spirit, The Shins, The National, and Wilco. FBR had a fortuitous start in early 2009. Having just returned from West Africa for a trip with his wife in the Peace Corps, Anderson had stockpiled a series of songs he wanted to record and met Rolfe and Hicks from previous bands in Fort Collins. The band formally united just days before their first show together at Surfside 7 on March 15, 2009. With the line-up on board, FBR released their first EP, Black and White EP, on June 25th, 2009 at Road 34. Generating buzz around the Colorado scene, the foursome spread their wings and began touring in October of that year through the midwest, then ventured out to the west and east coasts. Fierce Bad Rabbit has released four more albums, Spools of Thread in October 2010, Live And Learn EP in November 2011, The Maestro and the Elephant 2012, and Living Asleep 2014. Their music has frequently been included in prestigious lists such as the "Top 100 Artists to Discover at SXSW" (NPR MUSIC: 2013), winner of the Indie Acoustic Project's Album of the Year (2013 for The Maestro and the Elephant), OpenAir Radio (Colorado Public Radio's) Top Songs of 2014 ("Living Asleep," title track), and several more.
Fierce Bad Rabbit have revolutionized the Colorado music scene are branching out worldwide with their eclectic but accessible sound. The band have shared the stage with many national acts, including DeVotchKa, Neon Trees, Brett Dennen, and The Samples, to name a few. The band has played many festivals since their inception, including SXSW in Austin, TX since 2010, CMJ Festival, Bohemian Nights, and is planning performances for 2015 behind their album "Living Asleep."
