Rogue Wave

Rogue Wave formed in 2002 when a newly unemployed Zach Rogue left his San Francisco home, visited friends in New York City, and returned to California with nearly a full album's worth of textured, cerebral indie pop. Rogue then quit his post in his previous group, the Desoto Reds, and finished the album, which was released on Rogue's own Responsive label under the title Out of the Shadow. As he was completing the record, Rogue decided to form a band in order to perform the material live, and he soon hooked up with drummer/keyboardist Pat Spurgeon, bassist Sonya Westcott, and guitarist Gram LeBron. This outfit played shows in 2003 with the likes of Spoon, Mates of State, and other indie rock big shots. Impressed with their growing buzz, Sub Pop signed Rogue Wave and reissued Out of the Shadow in 2004.

At some point, Westcott was replaced in the lineup by Evan Farrell, and the revised band began recording a second album. The first result of their efforts was the 10:1 single, released in August 2005, which displayed a slicker and more produced sound without jeopardizing the elements that made the first record an artistic success. The full-length Descended Like Vultures followed in late 2005. Songs from the album appeared on television shows like Weeds, Friday Night Lights, and Heroes, and the band maintained a hectic touring schedule until 2006, when they were forced to take time off as drummer Pat Spurgeon underwent a kidney transplant and other bandmembers dealt with death (LeBron's father) and birth (Rogue's new daughter). The group also lost bassist Farrell, who left the lineup before perishing in an apartment fire in late 2007. Patrick Abernathy, formerly with Beulah, joined the group in his place. As if that wasn't enough tribulation, Rogue Wave couldn't come to terms with Sub Pop for future albums and was dropped from the label's roster. They found a suitable label soon after, however, as their friend Jack Johnson signed them to his Brushfire imprint and released their third album, Asleep at Heaven's Gate, in autumn 2007. With newcomer Cameron Jasper now handling bass duties, the band returned in early 2010 with their second Brushfire recording, Permalight. By the time of their next album, the group was down to Rogue and Spurgeon and had switched labels again. Nightingale Floors was released by Vagrant in early summer of 2013. ~ Tim Sendra, Rovi

Don't read this because it actually works. You will get kissed on the nearest possible friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you do not post this comment to 5 songs in at least 143 minutes you will die in two days.

i love how my modest mouse station presents me with great music!
Would love to hear some new stuff come out from the Wave =)
To be honest, I love the way Rogue Wave songs typically start and progress but I hate how they end. Can't stand the yeah eya eya eya stuff.
Hey Zach. You should remember all you past vibes. hugs and kisses and much much more. A big hard hug from the big hard world. love.....

Like taking a deep breath after eating a York Peppermint Patty !!
scbattersby
reminds me of matt costa sorta
sometimes sounds like interpol.... . . . . .
Rogue Wave puts on an awesome show! Saw them in Portland in 2009. They invited people onto the stage during the last song to dance. :D It was great! Not only that but their music ranks as some of the best in my books.
i swear i heard this on the radio a month or so ago. but nothing since then.

rIGHT ON LOVE IT !!!
Try Dear and the Headlights- Run in Front, Daysleeper or The Weeks- Buttons, Sailor Song. Music that needs to be brought to the attention of the mass population for the good of the world. Please pass this wave of truly great unrecognized music onward!!!!
I have seen them. and they are great live. we should watch them. they put on a show at Wash U in St. Louis , MO go see them
phiggy
Reminds me a tiny bit of Josh Rouse.
Has become my favorite band.
This is like floating on clouds with a little ego involved.... .
Has a little of the feel of "Yes"..
Just very nice and unusual flavors all mixed together.
@Taylor Brown - Not everyone who likes Rogue Wave is a hippie. Come see them for free at Fall For Greenville. www.fallforg r e e n v i l l e . n e t

minanka

robrossi10
Awesome story, thanks Jack for bringin' the "Wave" back!
don't forget Frisbee
If you wear Birkenstocks , tie-dye, and cargo shorts, enjoy playing your acoustic guitar and hacky sack in the park, then you will love this.

Saw this band a couple years back with Jack Johnson they were really good
Guess who's tour dates have just been released for 2010. Oh yes.
Vinyl still has the best quality sound by far. Anyone who knows anything about music knows that.
oooohh vinyl. we're clearly dealing with a music expert here guys. i must have listened to The Fat Boys "Crushin'" at least 80 times(on vinyl, motherf**ker s ) . When I was eight years old... when vinyl still made sense.
Their best album: Asleep at Heaven's Gate. If you disagree, then I will have to politely say that you are wrong. I must have listened to that album at least 80 times(on vinyl, motherf**ker s ) .
Anyone know which ones were on TV? I couldn't pick it out and I watch Weeds and Heroes.
