Flannel Mouth has been a staple in Central Illinois for five years now, and is now threading the Midwest with its perception of rock and theatrics, fronted by Luke Myers on vocals, guitar, and piano. Zachary Hartman provides the band's instrumental hooks on guitar, piano, trumpet, accordion, and almost any other instrument you can name, and while Ryan Batalon rounds out the wavelengths with his vocal harmonies and bass guitar, percussionist Tyler Jamsa provides the booms and bangs to punch the songs right through the listener.
These fine young gentlemen were quickly recognized by musician, studio, and label owner Michael Abiuso who signed Flannel Mouth to SwitchBitch Records in early 2012. Flannel Mouth recorded and released their debut EP Pull In Your Horns on March 8, 2012. There are many reasons and means to give thanks, and this is their way of giving back: a free download of their digital 7" on Thanksgiving 2012. These tracks were performed, produced, and recorded by Flannel Mouth at Dr. Swigburn's Palace of Debauchery in Glasford, Illinois, and mixed/mastered by Mike Abiuso at SwitchBitch Studios in Boston/Brooklyn, USA. "You Don't Miss Twice (When You're Shavin' With A Knife)" was composed by Murder By Death (Vagrant Records, 2010).
