From the streets of Chicago, something is brewing. Chicago veteran musicians, brothers Mark and Matt Nawara, and Mike Gorman, along with Phoenix, Arizona’s, Andy Mitchell have formed The Outfit.

The Outfit brings you straight up rock and roll, with catchy hooks and an aggressive sound. The Nawara brothers played the Chicago club scene for years, along with writing and recording original music. Mike Gorman comes from two legendary Chicago bands, Pezband and Off Broadway. Rounding out the lineup is singer/songwriter and guitarist Andy Mitchell, whose past bands included Dish, Verona and 9 Volt.

The Outfit released their first self-titled album on February 2, 2018. It was engineered by Chicago music veteran Matt Mercado at Sonic Palace Studios in Oak Park, Illinois. Mixing was handled in Los Angeles by Grammy nominated, multi-platinum producer and mixer Ulrich Wild (Pantera, Static-x, White Zombie, Deftones, and Breaking Benjamin).

Ultimately, the band wants to bring the rock scene back to basics with an edge. “Wire” will surely follow the success of the album’s lead single, “Soldier Boy,” which currently has over 17,000 streams on Spotify and has been receiving airplay all over Rock Radio stations. The single peaked at number 34 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Radio Chart.

Rounding out the lineup is singer/songwriter and guitarist Andy Mitchell, whose past bands included Dish, Verona and 9 Volt.

The single, “Soldier Boy,” depicts the hardships of war and the bravery of our soldiers. Andy states, “‘Soldier Boy’ was written in the perspective of a foot soldier and shows the emotions he goes through during a time of war. ‘Soldier Boy’ is someone who has always wanted to be a soldier. He is willing to give his life for the country he loves dearly, for the greater good, even if it comes with a price of pain or death.”

 

The Outfit’s debut album makes its way to digital and retail outlets everywhere via Pavement Entertainment, distributed by MRI/Sony-Orchard on February 2, 2018. Pre-order the album on iTunes to receive an instant download of the single “Soldier Boy.”
