Band Bio
Boston's post punk rockers Answerman feature Sam Pitino and Thomas Keddy (formerly of Ghost Radar), Walt Enright who spent his formative years managing bands in Boston's emerging indie rock scene, and punk veteran Tom Murphy who cut his teeth injecting his CBGB roots into local basement bands.

The foursome were playing out in local cover bands, including a Black Sabbath tribute called lack Sabbath?, until they joined forces in mid 2011 to form Answerman. In late 2012 they released the four track demo EP Don't Fall, which introduced their brand of thick psychedelia and surfy dream pop. The EP garnered Boston attention right away, including local song reviews, and a live radio debut on Boston's Unregular Radio and on-air rock station WZLX.

The band followed up that August with their heavy surfy, hook-laden single Jungle Seed. And in 2014 they released The Way You Want EP, which converge the bands collective overlapping influences to produce a blend of post punk, dream pop and psychedelic soundscapes bringing to mind early Pixies, Luna, and My Bloody Valentine.

In September 2015, Answerman released their third EP SWYM. Listen to it
