Le Divorce

Le Divorce is a guitar driven indie-rock foursome from Denver. They formed in the summer of 2009 and began playing shows five months later. The band was largely formed out of the ashes of Denver-based band Everything Absent or Distorted. When EAOD broke up, Joe Grobelny reunited with Kitty Vincent who he’d played with in Façade years before. The two began writing songs and soon recruited fellow EAOD member Ryan Stubbs to play bass. Chris Durant of Sun Red, Amazing Twin, and numerous other bands rounded out the line-up on drums. They draw from music that is raw and honest and willing to mix melody with distortion.

In 2009 Westword Magazine awarded them Best Musical Re-Partnership for the reuniting of songwriting team Kitty Vincent and Joe Grobelny and in 2010 and ’11 the band was nominated for Best Indie-Rock Band in Denver by Westword. In their first year together, Le Divorce played an Official CMJ Showcase in New York City. They also released their first EP titled “Pull Yourself Together,” which garnered praise from Westword, The Denver Post, and The Onion AV Club. More recently, Le D recently played at Red Rocks, SXSW 2011 and the Westword Music Showcase. And early this year the band opened for Liz Phair to a sold out Bluebird Theater.

They are currently working on a forthcoming EP to be released summer 2011.
