Bishop Allen is an American indie rock band from Brooklyn, New York. The band's core members are Justin Rice and Christian Rudder, who are supported both
on stage and in the studio by a rotating cast of musical collaborators. The band was formed in 2003 and grew out of Rice and Rudder's friendship; it takes its
name from Bishop Allen Drive in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where the two lived together after attending Harvard University.
Bishop Allen has released three albums and 12 EPs; their second album, The Broken String, was released in July 2007 and their most recent album, Grrr...,
was released in March 2009.
