Wreckage of the Modern City


It is no coincidence that Wreckage of the Modern City came into existence in 2000, at the birth of the new millennium. The band is a fusion of elements from late 20th century music and the technological and cultural influences of the 21st. Wreckage of the Modern City’s signature "kaleidoscopic" sound is an eclectic combination of talent, artistry, and musical influences.

It is no coincidence that Wreckage of the Modern City came into existence in 2000, at the birth of the new millennium. The band is a fusion of elements from late 20th century music and the technological and cultural influences of the 21st. Wreckage of the Modern City’s signature "kaleidoscopic" sound is an eclectic combination of talent, artistry, and musical influences. Dustin Oliverson's hard-edged skin-pounding provides a firm foundation for the band's sound, which is further reinforced by Thom Ancell's fluid bass-lines and mastery of the keyboards.

Mark Schultz's screaming guitar builds a complex wall of sound for the mesmerizing melodies and lyrical graffiti of lead vocalist Lemon. With the addition of electronic programming, audio effects, and a skillfully integrated video (designed by Ancell) the result is a stunning combination of pure art and musical performance. From the beginning, they established a web presence at www.wreckageofthemoderncity.com. Designed by Ancell, the stunning visuals and sounds urge you to explore the interactive website- which includes song samples, photos, news, merchandise, and a slideshow of the CD release party for their recent album "Singularity." With the internet the band has also begun to independently develop a following in Europe, particularly in Sweden, Holland, France and the UK. Wreckage of the Modern City [WOTMC] has participated in several local and regional competitions and showcases including MobFest in Chicago, the MidPoint Music Festival in Cincinnati and recently they were invited to Midem, a conference for music professionals in France.

WOTMC has also performed in many venues throughout the Midwest, notably The Elbo Room (Chicago), where they connected with Manny Sanchez of Gravity Studios. Sanchez mixed Wreckage's first full-length album "Singularity," creating a CD described by Michael Swanger of CityView as "one of the most polished albums created by a Des Moines band in recent memory." Right now, the band is working harder than ever to reach the next level of success. They're already putting together several songs with the potential for another album, and they continue to play theater and club shows in the Des Moines and upper Midwest area.
