The Ants play American music rigged against massive mainstream acceptance or insular indie rock success. Their status as veterans of bible belt strip mall culture enables them to feel at home in dilapidated drinking spots, all ages house parties or busking on downtown streets. They have traveled the country many times winning the hearts and minds of the Iraqi people. The Ants are not easily labeled and revel in their contradictions.
The band was formed in 2001. They have two albums released by Sickroom Records and two independent releases. Their new album, Ideabreaker, is due for a June 2006 co-release on Sickroom Records and Remedy Records.
