Based out of Northeastern Pennsylvania, the trio of the Stargazer Lilies comprised of John Cep (guitarist, bassist, vocalist, drummer, producer), Kim Field (bassist, vocalist) and rotating live drummers EJ DeCoske and Johnny Lancia formed after the demise of Cep and Field’s previous band Soundpool. As Soundpool, they toured with the likes of Chapterhouse, Ulrich Schnauss, A Place to Bury Strangers, School of Seven Bells, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Tobacco and others.
However, the Stargazer Liles were conceived as a change of sonic direction from Cep and Field’s work in Soundpool, in some way, the band wanted to strip their sound down to the essential. “We Are the Dreamers,” the album title track off their debut effort, We Are the Dreamers possesses a sound that manages to be simultaneously ethereal and delicate, and yet a subtle, muscular insistence while retaining a shoegazer quality
Along with the Casket Girls and Dreamend, the Stargazer Lilies will be on the Graveface Records Roadshow tour, which include two NYC area stops – February 17th at Shea Stadium and February 18th at Mercury Lounge.
