Schmillion told us they were excited about their Balcony TV appearance being released on 11/11/11 -- the last "binary" date for almost one hundred years -- and to celebrate the occasion, they're offering Balcony TV viewers an exclusive free download of the original electric version of "Deku" from their upcoming release here - http://soundcloud.com/schmillion/deku-v2/s-FZDEa. If you like "Deku," sign up for their mailing list at [email protected] to be notified when the new release is ready.
Born and bred in Austin, Texas, Schmillion is a rock band that formed in the summer of 2009. Originally a line up of 5 girls, only 13-15 years of age at the time, the group quickly gained notoriety for their unexpectedly heavy sound and belting vocals.
Schmillion was voted "Best Under 18 Band" in the 2010 and 2011 Austin Chronicle's Reader's Poll. They released their first self-titled EP in December 2010. The band played their first official SXSW Showcase in March on a bill that also featured the Bangles; and opened for 2011 "Best Album" Grammy winners Arcade Fire at their Texas dates in Dallas, Austin and Houston this past May. Schmillion has also shared the stage with Okkervil River, Explosions in the Sky, UME, Peelander-Z, Sick of Sarah, and Follow That Bird among others.
Schmillion is currently working on a full-length album that will include their original crunchy garage sound as well as songs that explore indie and pop inspirations. The band recently had a lineup change adding a new drummer to four of the original members.
When they aren't playing music, you'll find Schmillion at the movies, at one of their favorite local taco stands or out watching live music in Austin.
TUNE IN AGAIN SOON FOR MORE FROM BALCONYTV AUSTIN!!!
