Described by NPR Sound Opinions and Chicago Sun Times Rock Critic Jim DeRogatis as a rollicking, optimistic and relentlessly tuneful indie band, the Michigan City Vandals first gained national notice when they donated 100% of the album profits from their first record 'Little Slice of Hell' to go toward building a Habitat for Humanity home in the state of Michigan. 18 months later, they released the 'Revolve' EP which took them on tour to regional college campuses, major Midwest cities and garnered them opening spots for Bowling for Soup, Hank III, Mute Math and the Avett Brothers. After a year hiatus the Vandals returned in 2012 with ‘Back to Life’ a record inspired by a year of loss, love, light, revelation, dark spirals, and all the moments in between. MCV has recently released their 5th studio release, the self titled, 'Michigan City Vandals' album. MCV has placed songs on shows for HBO and the soon to be released film Kathy T by Cinema Concepts.
