"Brothers Austin and Alex formed The Noise FM in Fort Scott, Kansas, a town of 8,000 in southeast Kansas. Now we live in Chicago, but everyone knows we’re from Kansas because of our accents. Alex sings, plays guitar and keyboard, and does most of the computer stuff. Austin plays drums, sings and writes a lot of the music on bass guitar, but he doesn’t play bass guitar at live shows because he’s better at drums. We found Barry Ray Kidd on Craigslist and put him on bass because of his rad name.
We’ve toured the country several times over, playing SXSW, New York City as official performers at the CMJ festival, Summerfest in Milwaukee, The Denver Underground Music Showcase, Kansas City’s Middle of the Map Festival and the occasional fashion show. One time we opened for Presidents of the United States of America. They stayed on their tour bus while we played.
At SXSW we opened a sold-out show for “surprise guest” Nick Cannon. THE Nick Cannon of “Drumline” and (formerly) Mariah Carey. It was a weird show.
After 3 years, a move to a city where we knew no one, and a couple mid-twenty existential crises, The Noise FM released the full-length record “Attraction” in 2014 on The Record Machine label.
2017 brings new music, new shows, and a new fog machine. "
