Conshafter’s unapologetically nerdy indie rock and roll provides garnered the band a sheath of press clippings comparing the Virginia-based duo to Weezer (Streams Cuomo is evidently a fan himself, since he’s playing a electric guitar that sports activities a Conshafter sticker in the video for Weezer’s single “Dope Nasal area”), however the smart and smart-alecky punk-pop of acts just like the Mr. T Knowledge as well as the brainy, sardonic power pop of Fountains of Wayne also one thinks of. Conshafter was produced in 2000 by two learners at the School of NEW YORK at Chapel Hill, vocalist Chris Konstantinos and guitarist Dave Cykert, who initial met over the school’s staff group; the nascent music group took its uncommon name in the surname of the fellow group member, because it produced them have fun. The duo produced their very own label, Dork Epiphany Information (called after their preliminary demonstration EP), and documented their debut record, 2001’s YOUR ENTIRE DAY Job, with a number of close friends assisting on bass and drums. Carrying out a post-graduation relocation from Chapel Hill to Richmond, VA, Conshafter obtained a permanent tempo section in bassist Rob Teague and drummer Craig Nelson and released their second record, 2004’s Dread the Underdog. Conshafter’s third record, 2007’s A Gradual Drive Off a higher Dive, featured just one more new tempo section, bassist Sarah McCalla and drummer Travis Wilson.
