[press release] Brontosaurus is the dynamic duo of Nicholas Kelley and Nicholas Papaleo, formed in Chicago in 2010 as an outlet for their sometimes pretty, sometimes eerie pop constructions. Drawing inspiration from a variety of sources as well as their varied musical upbringing (classical and indie rock for Papaleo, metal and prog for Kelley), Brontosaurus performs their songs using all eight limbs, often at the same time, as well as intertwining their distinct voices to create a powerful and and entertaining live experience. Brontosaurus’ debut LP, Cold Comes To Claim, will be released in Spring 2011. This bombastic LP owes as much to the sound and feel of Tin Pan Alley as it does to the Pacific Northwest of the late nineties. Cold Comes To Claim runs the gamut – from sweeping grandeur to math-induced freak-outs. A US tour in support of the album will start this summer during which many arguments about Mars Volta will most likely take place.
