Hailing from Chicago, IL Infrared was formed in 1998. In the following years, the band has cultivated an underground following in the Chicagoland area through live shows and relentless promotion. In the spring of 2002, tragedy struck when bassist Michael Maro passed away at 22 years of age from a heart disease. The band continues Mike’s dream and honors him with an annual benefit show called Mikestock. The show continues to grow every year and is a great success in raising money for different charities in the area.
Stylistically, Infrared features an array of melodies and riffs, all delivered with the intensity that defines the group’s live shows. Performing throughout the state at top local venues like the Metro and Double Door and distributing 6000+ copies of demo releases has lead to the success the band enjoys today.
