"PAY WHAT YOU WANT" FOR THE CD AT endand.bandcamp.com.
"Noisy they may seem, with a wave of fuzzy vocals floating in and out of the beautifully distorted guitar, gritty, yet playful drumming and incredibly solid and steadfast bass grooves, EndAnd attacks their LP with a sense of urgency and honest DIY principles that finds its trajectory along a path that coincides with indie rock gods, such as the experimental lo-fi master, Wavves, but also, at times, the noisiness of Deerhunter." - Matt Walker, Delusions of Adequacy (adequacy.net)
"The result is pretty freaking awesome." - Newmusicmichael.com
"Commando is the band's stand out track and is one that will be garnering significant play as listeners find out about it." - Neufutur Magazine
"It rocks hard and has big hooks, along the lines of a band like the Pixies for instance. Crazy energy and charm. I'm digging it." - Those Who Dig
"Bottom line: This is a great fucking record bringing back old memories of *Stellastar, Ned's Atomic Dustbin, The Pixies, and all the other great 90's bands that have long been forgotten. They join contemporaries such as Cloud Nothings and Wavves that are trying to bring that sound back." - Indie Band Guru
"Locals EndAnd come off as '90s revivalists, nodding to Nirvana and Weezer but mostly answering to their own weird muse. Their scrappy, fuzzed-out rock is part anthemic, part loopy and all passionate." - Time Out

Bio: Disarmingly human and emotionally charged noise/garage rock from the heart of Brooklyn, New York, EndAnd have been gaining feverish word-of-mouth lately thanks to the release of the uncompromising "Adventures of Fi in Space", which saw the band getting recommended by publications such as Large Hearted Boy and Those Who Dig.
Starting in early 2011, Daniel Fern and Mike Morales played for months as a rock duo. Dan's versatile playing and writing style became an instant crowd pleaser, backing powerful, gut-wrenching vocals with solid guitar work. Dan had previously played the guitar, drums and bass on his early demos; in live performance he looped parts to overdub, while Mike held the groove with his intuitive percussive navigation.
As the duo gained steam, so, too, did their reputation, garnering increasing attention and respect at their rehearsal space, and home away from home, King Killer Studios (Gowanus, Brooklyn). After a show at Williamsburg's Public Assembly, where they serendipitously shared the stage with fellow KK band Capita Clip, Dan and Mike, sparked by the low end emanating from Capita's sound, asked bassist Bill Fitzgerald if he'd sit in at their next practice. Fitzgerald gladly obliged.
Bill jumped on board during this first rehearsal, bringing the vision of a power trio into fruition and forming EndAnd. With impressive vocal capabilities and spine-bending bass lines, Bill turned the project into a band when "Adventures of Fi in Space" was performed at the album's release show later that week.
Everyone, past and present, from the King Killer community is represented here: Ernest D'Amaso and Willie Chen of Generator Ohm; Dan Kramer of The Stink; and Robert Allan of We Are Augustines are among the many that contributed to Adventures. The album is comprised of Adventures of Hi Fi and Adventures of Lo Fi in Space, two EP's consisting of pristine studio recordings and a collection of DIY recordings, respectively.
With real rock music being on the return and the album being buzzed about, EndAnd are already planning tour dates and a new full-length album to be released in 2012.
