Holy Boys Danger Club are an independent rock and roll band featuring Michael â€œMiekâ€ Rodrigue (Vocals, Guitar), Dan Capaldi (Drums), Nathan Cyr (Bass Guitar), and Zach Jones (Guitar). After botched attempts by Rodrigue to get the band going while at college with Capaldi and Jones, the project was put on hold until the making of the bandâ€™s first release, â€œLessons For Liarsâ€. Despite being unveiled nearly a year after it was made, â€œLessonsâ€, produced by Jonathan Wyman, was released to much praise from press and radio. A request to open for another band found Rodrigue and Capaldi reaching out to Jones and long time friend, bassist Nathan Cyr (also of The Lucid), who would round out the line up. A few rehearsals and a couple shows would solidify the chemistry within the quartet and undoubtedly confirm its existence as a band.
The boys spent 2009 writing songs, playing the many venues in their hometown of Portland, Maine, as well as traveling throughout the northeast. While the band became known for their unrelenting live sets, they decided to take a break from performing in November as they would return to Jonathan Wymanâ€™s beloved Halo studio to craft their sophomore release, â€œThe Boo Boxâ€. The EP not only introduces the world to the bandâ€™s official line up, but showcases the quartetâ€™s growth both in the arenas of songwriting and harmonious live performance. â€œThe Boo Boxâ€ finds the band exploring new sounds and refined song structures while continuing to craft muscular alternative tunes theyâ€™ve quickly become known for.
