Starting in 2006 as a college-based band in Wisconsin, Eric Lives Here lit up the crowds of lovers, leavers and party animals with their strong, interactive live shows.
After years of performing across the state, the band hit the studio and released their second album, “The Night is Young,” in 2011. The new effort, written and recorded in Los Angeles, contains a mix of pop-rock/alt-rock tracks that have reestablished the band as a shoe-in for mainstream radio. In fact, Eric Lives Here became the first indie band in Wisconsin to receive airplay on four separate radio stations in the Fox Valley (KISS FM, WIXX, B104, K107).
Behind the strength of the album’s lead single, “Night is Young,” the band was also able to secure a cameo from comedian/actor T.J. Miller (“Get Him to the Greek,” “Our Idiot Brother,” “She’s Out of my League,” etc.) in their “Night is Young” music video, launched in summer 2012. Miller, who also hosted Comedy Central’s first season of “Mash Up,” was impressed with the song. “Night is Young” went on to be a favorite on Fox Valley radio, especially K107 where the song hit No. 1 seven times on the station’s “Top 7 at 7” show.
In summer 2013, Eric Lives Here returned to the airwaves with another radio friendly hit, “Cool Girls in Hot Pants.” Backed by another strong music video, the song was featured on numerous radio stations and was the most requested song on K107 over a 12-day span and, like “Night is Young,” reached No. 1 seven times on the “Top 7 at 7” show.
Besides radio, the band has also been featured on MTV partner Our Stage’s Top 40 eight times, performed at Sundance Film Festival and is currently working on their second full-length studio album, due May 2013.
Eric Lives Here – it’s time to rock.
