The Flowers Of Evil was originally started in 2009 as a recording project by Kaleb Hunter and Steve Henderson. For the last two years they have filled up hundreds of hours of tapes with songs, songs, and more songs. The Flowers play a distinct type of music, heavily influenced from proto-punk and garage bands like The Velvet Underground and The 13th Floor Elevators to Hank Williams, Sun Ra, John Coltrane, etc. They have a distinct ear for sounds from a forgotten and esoteric past, but keep both eyes steadfastly on the future with their music and songwriting. Not liking labels and pigeonholing, they simply describe it as a very primal,punk in spirit, head music. Between August 2011 and April 2012, The Flowers self-released 3 albums: Exile On Brain Street, 11:11, and Transit To Venus. All three were made and distributed by Kaleb through his own Black Monk Sound Records label. If you'd like to order one of the albums contact <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Since April 2012, the Flowers project has developed into a different era of group sounds featuring a live line-up featuring Kaleb Hunter (lead vocal, guitars) Dan Tejada (bass), Marcus Lappin (vocals, guitars, percussion), Joshua Hunter (guitar), and Chris Wittman (drums, percussion). The band maintains a good ethic of constant recording but with these releases being more limited and only available at shows, download, or at the local record store (Plaza Records). Official releases include Changing Colors (EP) and the album Rubber Seoul. The band currently has enough material for another album due to be out late 2013.
