When music is created because of a natural, organic process, that song takes on a whole new life. The Getout, a five piece rock ‘n’ roll band, experienced this organic process during the bands acoustic jam sessions. The band would cover songs acoustically and just create musically. That process has carried over for the band who has moved beyond acoustic cover sessions to mainstream rock ‘n’ roll.
Now in 2013, The Getout is packing venues and bringing their “in your face diverse rock ‘n’ roll,” sound to fans all over the Midwest. It seems even with growing success and a large fan base, The Getout is still humbled by the entire experience of rising in the industry. “The coolest thing is all the new bands and people you meet. We feel so lucky to be able to play music for people, and we are very fortunate to have so much support from our….fans. We wouldn’t be where we are today without them.”
With this swell of success and impressive musical sound The Getout is on the fast track for being on everyones musical radar but the band has a simple plan for the future. “We are taking it one day at a time, We have some rad shows in the near future. We are also planning to record a couple new singles for radio play we hope to land a few festivals this summer and do some touring.” The Getout is also planning to release their first full length album by the end of the summer.
