The Prom "Demos 2003" Out Today

We are honored to announce the release of The Prom's Demos 2003 EP – a collection of previously unreleased tracks by the indie-rock favorites of early aughts' Pacific Northwest.

The group of melancholic Seattle-based indie rockers were likened to everyone from Grandaddy to Paul McCartney to their Omaha, NE hometown contemporaries, Bright Eyes. Throughout the early 2000s, they toured with Death Cab for Cutie, The Long Winters, Carissa's Wierd, Starflyer 59, and became known for lending irreverent wit and infectious energy to their live shows, contrasting with the beautiful sincerity and often somber tones of their music.

Friends and loved ones were heartbroken by news of bandleader James Mendenhall's unexpected passing in January of 2019. James was an exceptionally talented pianist, composer and songwriter, and a wonderful human being.

The Prom Demos 2003 EP is available digitally everywhere. Watch the official lyric video for EP track "Rock Lies", created by band member Justin Wilmore using original 2003 tour footage. 04 Oct 2019
