Formed in Boston in the summer of 1999, Freezepop is comprised of band members Liz Enthusiasm (vocalist), the Duke of Pannekoeken (producer/vocalist/programmer), and Sean Drinkwater (synthesizers/programmer/vocalist). Within eight months of forming, Freezepop had released two homemade EPs and started a DIY machine that would become one of their trademarks. Their debut album, 2000’s Freezepop Forever, was released domestically on their own label, Archenemy, as well as licensed in Europe by the Spanish indiepop label Elefant. Several more EPs followed, and in 2004, Freezepop released their sophomore album, Fancy Ultra•Fresh, and toured extensively, playing energetic, fun, and chaotic shows throughout North America and Europe. After nearly eight years of self-releasing their CDs, Freezepop is very excited to be partnering with Cordless Recordings/Rykodisc for the release of their brand new album, Future Future Future Perfect.

While the band has done well on college radio, repeat-charting in the CMJ Top 50, a key factor in Freezepop’s success has been that they have sought out licensing opportunities as an alternate means of getting their music heard. A natural fit on videogame soundtracks, the band saw their following grow through songs in the cult music-based games Frequency and Amplitude, and then increase exponentially after appearing in the massively popular Guitar Hero series, Dance Dance Revolution, and the new MTV Games release Rock Band. Freezepop’s songs are also featured in televsion shows as diverse as Showtime’s drama The L Word, and the PBS childrens’ series Arthur, as well as the Nissan Rogue ad campaign, and an assortment of indie films, extreme sports DVD releases, and websites. Their single “Less Talk More Rokk” was the iTunes #4 dance/electronic song of 2007.

In addition, Freezepop has used the internet as a powerful way to find new fans and stay in touch with the diverse ranks of old-schoolers. Freezepop.com features enough content to keep visitors entertained for hours; the band’s MySpace page is noisy with over 50,000 fans clamoring for more rokk, and is consistently ranked in the Electro Top 10. The page, which is still maintained by the band members themselves (and remains proudly spam-bot free), has racked up more than three million plays in under three years.
