The Ponys got their break the old fashioned way, relentlessly touring the Chicago indie scene showcasing their garage rock sound. Word of mouth eventually led to quite a following, and they soon signed a record deal, releasing their debut album in early 2004. The album wasn't a huge commercial hit, but it did well with the critics, which earned them another trip to the studio that same year. The follow up was called Celebration Castle, which is where todays song is from. The record once again brought them critical acclaim, even though it was recorded in a span of only four days. After a few lineup changes, the band continued to tour, and released their third album, Turn the Lights Out in the spring of 2007. The band remained quiet for a while, but has recently released a new EP entitled, Deathbed + 4.
