Bent puzzle pieces we are, small cities tall buildings, this glass flipper is giving me blisters. ”

Lyrics from Stories About Ourselves

Maps & Atlases are a four-piece indie band based out of Chicago, IL. The group formed in 2004 when members Dave Davison (guitar, vocals), Shirz Dada (bass) Erin Elders (guitar), and Chris Hainey (drums) met at Columbia College Chicago. The band received praise for the self-released 2006 EP Tree, Swallows, Houses. Their 2008 EP You and Me and the Mountain released by Sargent House helped the band achieve further acclaim thanks to its complex math rock guitar work, energetic drums, and tight songwriting. The band released their debut full-length Perch Patchwork on Barsuk Records and followed that up with 2012's Beware and Be Grateful, also released on Barsuk. They are currently touring the U.S. in support of Beware and Be Grateful.
