Биография: When the Steinways broke up, lead singer/guitarist Grath had nearly an album's worth of songs written and time booked at Sonic Iguana Studios to record them. Rather than let all that go to waste, he quickly formed a new band made up the friends with whom he most wanted to play music, with no considerations of geography or practicality. As a result, House Boat are rarely (if ever) able to tour, but the band features some of the most talented musicians in today's pop punk scene. On bass is Azeem, also of The Steinways. On second guitar is Zack, lead vocalist and guitarist in Dear Landlord, as well as the guitarist (until December 2010) of Off With Their Heads. And finally, on drums, is Mikey of The Ergs!, The Dopamines, The Measure (SA), The Unlovables, Star Fucking Hipsters, Ensign, The Slow Death, Psyched to Die, Used Kids, and many, many more. Since recording that first album ("The Delaware Octupus"), the band has followed up with an EP ("Processing Complaints") and most recently, their sophomore full-length ("The Thorns of Life"). They've also embarked on one midwest/east coast tour, played a handful of shows in New York City whenever Zack and Mikey come to town, and have become a staple of Baltimore's annual Insubordination Fest.
