Fourth of July is an indie rock band from Lawrence, Kansas. Frontman Brendan Hangauer began writing eventual Fourth of July songs as early as 1999--initially with a solo project in mind--but the band came together and began performing live in 2002. They are currently with Range Life Records. The band consists of Brendan Hangauer (vocals, guitar), Patrick Hangauer (bass), Kelly Hangauer (keys, trumpet, vocals), Brian Costello (drums), Brendan Costello (guitar). Some of their early marketing push came through posting their videos on YouTube.
