Barricades are Jared Walsh – vocals and guitar, Chris Norton – vocals and guitar, Justin Lutz – bass, Matt Divito – guitar, synth, and vocals, Dan Norton – drums
Barricades formed in the summer of 2008 in Braintree, Mass, and began writing music on college breaks and long weekends. Once the lineup was solidified with like-minded classmates, the band went to work on their first EP, Strong Foundations, in 2010.
The “Lost” single was released in 2011. They released their debut full-length, With Perfect Aim, in the summer of 2013, and were the first band to participate in the Converse Rubber Tracks series at Q Division studios, where they recorded and released the single “Living in a Bubble” in December of 2013.
Their alternative pop-rock sound has mass appeal and has been compared to Jimmy Eat World and Minus the Bear.
