Duck. Little Brother, Duck! take the upside down genre of math rock and turn it on its head once again. The band made their entrance into the Portland scene with fifteen sprawling tracks in the spring of 2010. Survival Is Not a Workout is a smartly crafted full-length that travels a rough terrain with tracks like "L. Ron Hubbard (We Did One of These at the Mall)" and "Steve Jobs (All Is Fun Until Someone Gets Stabbed)". The band followed this release up with their first cross-continental tour (with Girlfriends) that summer where they left audiences, at the very most, with mouths agape, and at the very least, confused.
But that's how they like it. Born and bred in the same petri dish of Portland, Oregon, the guys grew up throughout the years with the same friends and the same music taste, which ultimately left them on the same wavelength. Soon after Jon and Phil left their previous band, The Jezebel Spirit, the group came together to begin writing and playing shows in the summer of 2009. From there they embarked on a series of short tours, writing and recording what would become Survival Is Not a Workout.
