Following high school graduation in 2006, the band Murals dug their act out of the basement and planted it onto stages and into minds across Louisville, KY. Founding members Evan Blum (bass), Rob Monsma (drums) and Jacob Weaver (vocals/guitar) dreamed up a musical fruit jam, blending art-rock and psychedelic proto-punk. The addition of Hunter Presnell on guitar in 2009 completed the bands line-up. On July 1, 2012, Murals are releasing their self-produced album "On a Passing Cloud", which was recorded off and on over the past two years. The project started in late 2009 with the band sifting through an unconscionable amount of cassette demos and session recordings. Curious about constructing a latticework of familiar and disparate sounds, Murals relocated to a warehouse space in downtown Louisville. The band taught itself to record, and songs "Thief" and "Lunar Love" were selected respectively for the ninth and tenth installments of the Louisville is for Lovers compilation album series. As a result, Murals grew more serious about a release of their own. Eight songs were chosen, finalized and mastered for the On a Passing Cloud album, which is to be released on the July 6th. With the bulk of a second LP already committed to tape, plans for a summer tour, and a current musical residency at the Monkey Wrench in Louisville, Murals is a band with eyes facing forward.
