Energetic. Raw. Powerful. Melodic. Intense. Rock.

These are words that have been used to describe Algren, a fresh rock band from Chicago that has burst onto the local music scene with their unique blend of introspective lyrics, searing guitar riffs, grooving rhythms and dynamic songwriting.

Algren hit the ground running in late 2006, quickly building a strong repertoire of hard/indie rock songs. Known for their inspiringly energetic sets, Algren has played gigs at numerous Chicagoland bars and clubs throughout 2007 and 2008, including highlight performances at Double Door, Cubby Bear, Elbo Room, and the Downers Grove Heritage Fest. The band is quickly building up a devoted fan base with the help of various media outlets, such as Q101, 97.9 The Loop, Fearless Radio, the Red Eye, Rock Chicago on CANTV-19, and The Local Tourist. Algren is also a member of Chicago Noise Machine, the consortium of local bands that also includes A Birdsong Valentine, Bullet Called Life, Echoson, Heavy the Fall, Lucid Ground, Reverie, 72 Hours, and Simplistic Urge.

All four members are dedicated and driven musicians, performers, and promoters looking to make a name for themselves in the regional and national market while performing the music they love. The group recorded a new song, ""Morning"" last February and looks to record a full-length album for a spring 2009 release.

Algren has entered the studio to begin work on our first full album. We are thrilled to be working with Sam Beckley from Gremlen Studios again, this time on a project of far greater scope than our previous demo recordings. We will be writing daily blogs recapping the studio experience and recording some video blogs as well so check this site regularly for updates. We'll post some samples as soon as they become available. FYI, we are looking at late March or early April for the album release.

SOLD OUT! That's what's Chicago Noise Machine accomplished for their first show at the Cubby Bear this weekend. Algren is very proud to have been a part of this extremely successful event and we look forward to announcing CNM's next step very soon. Thanks to everyone that came out and supported us!

Chicago Noise Machine is well underway (check our blog section for more info about that partnership if you haven't heard yet) and all nine bands have been working hard over the last two months to make the Nov 14 launch party something special. Q101 is on board as a sponsor - be sure to listen to Local 101 on Nov 2 at 10:00pm to hear Algren on air.

NEWS 8/18/08
Algren recently decided to record a full-length album so we will be hard at work over the next two months to write a lot new material. We're taking September off to concentrate on writing but don't worry, the hiatus won't last too long. The schedule is tentative, but we hope to start recording in November/December and release the album sometime this winter or early spring. More news coming soon.
