Forming in 2001 in Ames, Iowa, the Radiohead-esque four-piece that make up the Envy Corps, have been through several ups and downs in their ten years as a band.

Their debut album was released in 2004, which lead to their signing with Mercury Record imprint Vertigo and a tour with the Killers. They were working on their first major label album Dwell when guitarist Brandon Darner suffered a stroke on-stage. The Envy Corps took time off for his recovery and delayed the release. Their relationship with Veritgo ended in 2008, and they have since released the Kid Gloves EP and their latest, It Culls You, which is being self-released.

Songs performed: "Ms. Hospital Corners," "Screen Test" and "Palace on Stilts."
