The AntiVillains

Midwest Nostalgia

The AntiVillains grew up in the post-industrial city of Toledo, Ohio.  Ten years, several records, and many miles in their wake, The AntiVillains continue to record and perform timeless original work, using their unique method of storytelling to convey themes of first loves, family tragedy, space travel, and nostalgia for their Great Lakes home. 


new release- ANTHEMS 



Our lives have changed immensely since we started recording these songs 4 years ago. With the passing of Alan and Donna Cohen, the world around us shifted and shook. In time, we grew stronger and continue to write music. At times we thought of abandoning the project and starting over, but instead, we worked even harder to give these songs new meaning and purpose.

ANTHEMS, explores bold sounds and sweeping landscapes. The opening track "Sirens" is a lullabye, a mythical dream, "Before You Know" speaks of regret and lost time, "Come Back Down" is a story of a banished superhero and a homage to our Mother. "Running After You" is a film noir vibe, while "Shooting Star" is a luscious pop dream.

Play it for your friends, play it for your family, and remember to let loose once in awhile. Thank you so much for playing a part in our dream.
