SPOUSE, hailing from New England and parts beyond have enjoyed 27 years of writing, recording, and playing their own unique style of frenetic, melodic, indie rock and pop. The band, led by Jose Ayerve(vocals, guitar) and J.J. O’Connell(drums, vocals), is a collaborative of several musicians local and abroad combining influences from all of them.
To date, SPOUSE has released 7 full-length albums(2 during Covid lockdown), several EP’s, singles, compilation tracks and a full length live album. All can be found at spousemusic.com.
The band made its debut at the Stone Church in 2018 (a live recording of the end of that fantastic show is also available on the website), and we are very excited to return to this incredible venue with friends Ex-Temper supporting.
Ex-Temper creates riveting, unpredictable, guitar-driven rock layered with catchy melodies and three-part vocal harmonies. Once described as “Fugazi meets the Andrews Sisters” and credited with playing “heavy, head-banging riffs,” their lyrics explore a myriad of subjects including heartbreak, obsession, prominent social issues, obscure mythology and more with deft style and clever wordplay
