Formed in New York in 2003 by Brad Hargett and JB Townsend, multi-influenced indie rock band Crystal Stilts released their first work -- some singles and an EP -- in 2004 on the Feathery Tongue label. The first single, "Shattered Shine," was followed by a series of local shows and then a five-song EP on Woodsist in 2008. Later that same year, their debut full-length album, Alight of Night, was released by Slumberland. While the records were made by the duo, for live shows and the tour surrounding the album's release they were joined by Kyle Forester on keyboards, Andy Adler on bass, and Frankie Rose, formerly of Vivian Girls, on drums. After touring with the band during 2009, Rose left to form her own band (Frankie Rose and the Outs). The remaining members began work on their next album and the result, In Love with Oblivion, was released by Slumberland in April of 2011. For live shows, the band added new drummer Keegan Cooke. Mere months later the band released the Radiant Door EP on Sacred Bones.~ Chris True, Rovi
