THE GRADUATE have gone from virtual unknowns to gracing the cover of CMJ magazine in a matter of just a few short months. Afterseveral years of heavy touring with previous bands, these Springfield, IL natives have created quite a buzz and amassed a following thatfeels more like a family than a fan base.Formed in November 2005, THE GRADUATE, collaboration between long-time friends Tim Moore, Corey Warning, Matt Kennedy, Max Sauerand Jared Wuestenberg, gained momentum in the Midwest ‘indie-circuit’ due to the memorable songs, interactive live show and friendlydisposition of its members.

Holed up for weeks on end in Salad Days Studios in Baltimore, MD, guitarist Max Sauer Describes the experience of creating ANHEDONIAand working with acclaimed producer Brian McTernan (Circa Survive, Senses Fail, and Thrice).

"It was fun and hard at the same time. He pushed us, like a coach would, and made us do our absolute best, so at times it was nerve-racking, like 'Ah, I can't do this anymore, I need a break for a little bit,' but he pushed us and I'm really happy that he did because I lovehow it turned out..

THE GRADUATE eagerly awaits hitting the road and sharing the new material with fans. Best described as solid, mature pop. rock showeredwith sincerity and honesty, ANHEDONIA, a name chosen for its reference to ‘lack of emotion’, reflects the idea of just existing. Singer CoreyWarning notes that the guys came into their own during the recording process and the finished product encompasses everything they werestriving to achieve.

"I think that the people who liked the EP are going to like the full-length [album], I'm pretty confident about that. I think it's progressive forus. I feel like we're really starting to define our sound and what we're trying to do as a band with our music..

The band has since broken up but continue making music under a new band name called The Sun and the Sea. « hide
