Built to Spill 2014 Tour Schedule
This Boise-based group has been pleasing fans with their eclectic songs for over
two decades, and they're not going to stop anytime soon. Built To Spill is the brainchild of Doug Martsch, a talented singer-songwriter
who led the band into the worldwide spotlight. Although the band's lineup has changed over the years, with the exception of
Martsch, who has remained the constant, Built To Spill continuously churns out catchy songs with deep lyrics. As the band
evolved over the years, so did their music, and the indie rock scene can't get enough of Martsch's diverse lyrics and the
band's phenomenal on-stage chemistry.

To Spill Background
After his stint in Treepeople, Dought Martsch (guitarist, vocalist, songwriter) decided to form
a new band in his hometown of Boise, Idaho in 1992. From the beginning, Martsch knew that he wanted the lineup to constantly
change. He once stated that he wanted to alter the band's lineup with the release of every album, and he would be the only
permanent member. He stuck with this idea for a while, replacing the original band members Brett Netson and Ralf Youtz with
Brett Nelson and Andy Capps after the first album, Ultimate Alternative Wavers (1993) was released.
In 1995, Martsch
was offered a major singing deal with Warner Bros. Records, because unlike most record deals, the one Martsch negotiated allowed
he and the band to have a major creative control over the band's future. Built To Spill got to work on a new album, preparing
for their first major label release. In 1997, they released the album Perfect from Now On with the members Martsch, Nelson,
Netson, and Scott Plouf. Their first major record label album met with much critical acclaim and quickly thrust Built To Spill
into the rock scene spotlight. But after the release of this album, Martsch decided to change his strategy and make Nelson
and Plouf permanent members of the band. While Built To Spill continued to tour, write songs, and produce albums, Martsch
realized that he craved a project that he could tackle all on his own. In 2002, he released a solo album titled Now You Know,
and Built To Spill took a short hiatus.
To this day, Built To Spill is still going strong, although the lineup has changed.
In addition to Martsch and Netson, three new members have joined the group: Jim Roth, Steve Gere, and Jason Albertini. This
five-piece band has been making a splash throughout the country and is earning the reputation for being able to put on a truly
incredible show. So make sure you don't miss out on this fun and exciting concert experience and grab your Built To Spill
concert tickets on StubHub today!
Built To Spill's twenty plus year history has been prolific,
to say the least, but their fans and critics still have their favorite albums and singles. Some of the band's most popular
albums include There's Nothing Wrong with Love (1994), Perfect From Now On (1997), Keep It Like a Secret (1999), and You in
Reverse (2009). Their loyal and adoring fans find all of their albums truly marvelous, as Martsch's diverse lyrics and powerful
guitar riffs make every song a pleasure for the ears.
Music critics have been singing Martch's
praises for decades. The New York Times even compared Martsch to Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Jimmy Page because of his
superior guitar skills and his natural knack for rock and roll. Humble as ever, Martsch merely deflected these compliments
and went back to cranking out great song after great song.
