PLACES BACK HOME
Places Back Home is a band forged in Fort Collins, CO by friends who needed a release from the rigor of studying at Colorado State University. Focused on making music that captures the raw and honest experience of being human in a world full of questions, PBH blurs the lines of genres with an emotional mixture of indie rock, folk, and post rock that has been coined as “post folk”.
Beyond putting on energetic live shows, Places Back Home feels a deep responsibility to love the world around them, and strives to make a difference in their community.
1. something used to hold or secure a thing in place; a catch, hook, clamp, etc.
On February 25th, 2017, we released our debut EP under our band name. We wanted to share a little about what our band name means. We're about heartfelt songs, examining everything in life carefully. Our name kind of came from that. The idea that we need to hold fast to that which is good, & that life is not always easy. I write songs about love, friendship, depression, family, the past, & the future. Pretty much anything that comes to mind. What's funny is I'm pretty sure the real story of how we got our band name has to do with Dictionary.com. "Holdfast" was the "Word of the Day." I had kept a list of band name ideas in my iPhone notes, & most of them came from those "Words of the Day." I admired the thought of "Holdfast" being one word, but it's meaning being in a verbal sense. Holding fast to each other is what we- as brothers - have done, & it’s what we all will continue to do through this life.
The waking moment when you realize you've overslept creates a unique sensation of urgency. That call to participate in the world and utilize what is left of the time you have is what inspired Elias Armao, Corban Roberts, Evan Zeller, and Mickey Postilion to pursue music earnestly. Since Overslept's conception in December 2013 that mentality has grown the project from its acoustic-pop roots to a four-piece band with a consistent touring focus and no intention of sleeping in.
The band's new flagship album "With Or Without" packs a heavy punch, while maintaining the whimsical textures that Overslept is known for.
Overslept has shared the stage with Lydia, Sorority Noise, My Body Sings Electric, Comrades, and Tigerwine, The Ready Set, and many more. They have released two full-length LPs ("I've Been Keeping To Myself" and "With Or Without"); as well as two EPs ("Overslept/Father Mountain Split" and "That's Not Very Punk Rock Of You").
Overslept's passion for playing makes their live performance a cathartic experience that creates an inviting air of community.
