ABOUT THE BAND

Hello! Long Birds is a SKATE PUNK (with a little ska and a little hardcore) band originating from Elgin, Illinois! this is a lie They are currently based in Champaign, IL. In 2016, Elliott Ross started a solo project and then in 2017 Mina Mazeikis joined the group to form a folk-punk style duo. That is when Long Birds was born! In 2018 they released their first two EP's titled "Fingers & Teeth" and "Beans & Super Nintendo." These recordings were very primative, and they played these songs live acoustically. In 2018 Jared Perovic joined the band on the drum set to solidify the change from folk-punk duo to punk power-trio. The band went on to play a bunch of cool shows with this lineup.

In the summer of 2019 the group went on their first tour and played outside of Illinois for the first time. Morgan Hiraoka was playing the drums with them during that summer. During this time Elliott and Mina were writing and demoing a bunch of rad new songs for what would be their future album.
