Read Yellow is the energy of noise. The band sets to explore new ground musically by creating the unpredictable, but still holding true to the base elements of underground sounds. Read Yellow was formed in 2001 by four University of Massachusetts students who shared a common love for rock 'n roll and art. Originally known as the Sharks!, Jesse, Evan, Michelle and Paul started playing regularly around Amherst and soon found their way into Boston, where they met and befriended Mark Kates, chief of Fenway Recordings. Shortly thereafter, they changed their name to Read Yellow, were signed to Fenway (who released their self titled EP), and were playing regularly throughout the Northeast and Midwest. From Montreal to New Jersey, from Burlington to Chicago, in basements, skate parks, church halls and clubs, the band set forth to convert the masses. Their EP was also received with open arms in the UK, where it's been played on BBC Radio 1 and XFM. The band has made two trips there, one of which featured them doing a coveted Peel Session. In late 2003, the band entered Excello Studios in Brooklyn NY with producer Paul Kolderie (Pixies, Hole, Radiohead) to begin work on their first full length. In a total of ten days (spread over 3 months), Radios Burn Faster took shape and was finished off at Cambridge's Camp Street Studios. Read Yellow have showcased their furious live show with a wide range of acts including Pretty Girls Make Graves, ...Trail of Dead, Mission of Burma, Thursday, Funeral For a Friend, The Bronx, Division of Laura Lee, Radio 4, The Distillers and The Rapture. This spirited act creates a frenzied atmosphere that shatters conventional concert standards and has been seen and embraced on both sides of the Atlantic. Read Yellow is here to show that the passion for making and playing music is still very much alive and very real.
