Artist Bio

This Must be the Band is a Talking Heads Tribute Band; we only play Talking Heads music, and, if possible, 3 to 4 hours at a time.

Since forming in May 2007, TMBTB has been Burning Down The House throughout Chicago and the entire midwest. With a rapidly expanding repertoire from the Talking Heads’ catalog of countless hits, TMBTB highlights the best of the Talking Heads, equipped with our very own Bernie Worrell, Adrian Belew, Lynn Mabry, and Ednah Holt.


Imagine the soundtrack for a film noir version of a Greek tragedy set in the future, and you might be close to The New World Ancients’ sound. It’s progressive rock meets art rock meets psych rock meets new wave, et cetera. The music is agreeably contradictory: both punishing and subtle, aggressive yet sensual, heightened though approachable; it’s artsy rock and roll that will terrify and delight you. Each show is a grand affair, and they employ their theatricality to the fullest in the live setting. You’ve never heard anything quite like these guys, but you’ll be glad you did.

Chicago Music Magazine says they’re “by far the most original local band”. We think you’ll agree.
