"The Addisons are like a group of Chicago punk rock all-stars, guys that have been playing in some pretty serious bands around town dating back to the 90's. Looking forward to hearing more from these guys..."
(James Van Osdol, WKQX 101)

Tom Counihan and Dave Lysien were the co-songwriters in the Addison, IL band Not Rebecca who were part of the seminal 90's Chicago punk scene that spawned bands like Smoking Popes, Alkaline Trio, The Bollweevils, Cap'n Jazz, Oblivion, Apocalypse Hoboken and many more. After the band broke up in 1998, Lysien did a stint in the band Woolworthy before forming the long-running group Textbook. Counihan moved on as a touring member of Smoking Popes and later launched a solo career as Tom Daily. The duo hadn't collaborated in well over a decade until they started working on new music together in 2015. And after recruiting longtime friends Rick Uncapher on bass (Dan Vapid and The Cheats, Noise By Numbers, Textbook) and Jesse Carmona on drums (Gods Reflex, The Braves), The Addisons were born.
