The Outfit – Elo Kiddies 23rd April 2021 Release
Chicago based rock band The Outfit bring you their first release of 2021 called “Elo Kiddies” which is the 1977 cover of Cheap Trick single.
The Outfit returns with their new single “Elo Kiddies,” which was originally released in 1977 by Cheap Trick. The Outfit’s version of “Elo Kiddies” captures the spirit of the original while instilling a modern hard rock sound that Cheap Trick fans will love, as well as listeners who are discovering the song for the first time.
From the streets of Chicago, something is brewing. Chicago veteran musicians, brothers Mark and Matt Nawara, and Mike Gorman, along with Phoenix, Arizona’s Andy Mitchell have formed The Outfit.
The Outfit brings you straight up rock and roll, with catchy hooks and an aggressive sound. The Nawara brothers played the Chicago club scene for years, along with writing and recording original music. Mike Gorman comes from two legendary Chicago bands, Pezband and Off Broadway. Rounding out the lineup is singer/songwriter and guitarist Andy Mitchell, whose past bands included Dish, Verona and 9 Volt.
The Outfit released their first self-titled album on February 2, 2018. It was engineered by Chicago music veteran Matt Mercado at Sonic Palace Studios in Oak Park, Illinois. Mixing was handled in Los Angeles by Grammy nominated, multi-platinum producer and mixer Ulrich Wild (Pantera, Static-x, White Zombie, Deftones, and Breaking Benjamin).
The Outfit has the chops of veteran musicians, yet the forward thinking attitude to make an impact with a fresh, unique sound for today’s music scene. The band’s 2018 single “Soldier Boy” secured the #34 spot on Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock chart. The Outfit’s sophomore album Viking also has created a buzz in the rock world. The most recent single “Come Alive” has over 174,000 plays on Spotify.
