Maps Need Reading is a four-piece art rock band based in Knoxville, Tennessee. The band fuses elements of jazz, indie, and post rock, creatingahybrid sound that equally satisfies the tastes of both progressive rock and pop fans alike.

Guitarist David Webb, bassist Nathan Patterson, and guitarist/keyboardist Chris Burgess formed The Renaissants during their high schoolyears,creating nifty indie pop music that slowly drifted toward more odd time signatures and dynamic arrangements. The three musiciansformedMaps Need Reading in 2011 by adding drummer Jordan Sexton, whose style allowed the band to further develop a more progressive,post-rock-influenced sound. In 2014, Sexton left the band and was replaced by childhood friend and University of Tennessee music schoolcompanion DJYoung.

Moving forward with Young, the band has further diversified its sound while continuing to refine the core audible elements that have keptfanscoming back - long, dynamic orchestrations that combine deep, dissonant noise and danceable indie pop aesthetics. Each member of thebandcontributes their own respective influences to the writing process, and that diversity allows for songs that span all across the musicalspectrum.The band released its Hopes for Chemistry EP in August, 2015, and has used the positive momentum the album has received to beginpushingtheir sound outside Knoxville. « hide
