The Kickback is an indie rock band currently based in Chicago. The group was formed as singer/guitarist Billy Yost’s “first attempt to get a ‘college band thing’ going” at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion, South Dakota. The band name was chosen after Billy’s readings on the Enron scandal while attending the university. While on tour in 2010, the band created a podcast called Disas-Tour, which is still ongoing. It discusses the daily life of a band that has to make sacrifices, due to budget constraints and other obstacles, for their art.

After releasing “Great Self Love” in 2010 and “Mea Culpa Mea Culpa” in 2011, they received attention from Rolling Stone’s Hype Monitor blog as well as Chicago music critic and Sound Opinions contributor Jim DeRogatis. They decided to send the demos of their new LP to Jim Eno, the drummer of Spoon, as a joke, though Eno responded favorably to the music. The band ended up recording and producing Sorry All Over The Place at Eno’s studio in Austin, TX. The album was released in September of last year.
