“THEY’VE SHOT FLANIGAN has set a steady beat in the heart of Indianapolis music for nearly a decade. They’re never shy about lending their music to the new, burning sounds of 21st century rock, but their tactics are lock, stock, and barrel old-fashioned. No internet marketing campaigns, no MySpace friend recruitment operations – just well-written albums and searing live performances.” – MarchToThisBeat.com
“THEY’VE SHOT FLANIGAN has a larger than life sound…unlike many indie bands, they execute their slower songs with as much skill and creativity as their faster ones. And they put on one hell of a show…I cannot understand why they aren’t way bigger than they are now.” – Girl at the Show
“They have the ability to put their audience in those moments of suspense you feel every time you watch an intense movie that’s about to hit its peak. Between you and me, it’s those moments of intensity that I crave; those moments where you can send your thoughts to a distant place where nothing can touch them and the artistic you can run wild.” –IndyConcerts.com
“Every track takes me to a deeper, darker place than I have ever been.” – RickyLeePotts.com
“The rare arguments in the studio are rooted in the passion they share to make this an excellent album. They really want this album to prove who they are as a band: unique, abstract, and untraditional.” – IUPUI Student Media
“If there is ever a band that deserves your attention, it’s THEY’VE SHOT FLANIGAN.” – SoundsThat Matter.com
Since 2002, Indianapolis-based THEY’VE SHOT FLANIGAN have been tirelessly writing, recording and touring, establishing themselves as a strong and consistent presence in the Midwestern rock and roll scene. With a sound that is deeply rooted in classic rock and heavily influenced by contemporary independent and progressive artists, the band makes music that is simultaneously dark and catchy, heavy and melodic, intense and contemplative. “They are adept songwriters,” writes Louise Sinclair of Girl At The Show, “with the kind of mature, put-together sound you’d expect from a major artist.”
THEY’VE SHOT FLANIGAN have released two EPs and a full-length album, and are currently recording a new 10-song concept album, about the life and death of a gunslinger, with engineer Seth Henderson of Always Be Genius studios. The album is anticipated to be released in 2011.
