Based out of Chicago, The Struggs released their debut record, The Way Things Used To Be, on October 4, 2016 to a positive response. Straight forward, sincere, catchy, pop-rock is what this 6 piece does best. Inspired by artists like Ryan Adams, Butch Walker, Counting Crows and Dawes, the band is excited to have their original music released to the world.
Throughout late 2016 and 2017, the band played shows in Illinois and Iowa tweaking their live show along the way. Playing mostly music from their first record, the writing continued. On January 5, 2018, the Struggs released a 3 song acoustic EP called 3 In G. Their 2nd LP is expected later in 2018.
