Starting out in 2008 as a hard-hitting drum and guitar duo, Blackbutton produced two independent records: That Thing That You Want To Put A Finger To Is Because (2009), and Gun Shot Lover (2010). Guitarist/vocalist Jordan Tavenner, and original drummer Anshul Jain, toured the New England area and ended their performances at the 2010 SXSW Festival. The band took an indefinite break, while Tavenner explored new musical projects with other friends and bands. After a two-year hiatus, Tavenner re-established Blackbutton by soliciting help from friend and drummer Justin Emile (Aloud, Big East), and Boston newcomer Dave Koslovsky (bass guitar). In 2012, the band started work on new material, preparing for their re-introduction into the Boston music scene. The new line-up sold out their first public performance as a heavier and more adventurous rock band, while maintaining the grittiness and pissed-off attitude that fans had come to expect. After the success of their debut, the band quickly jumped into the studio to record their first single. The Still Kids single was released in December 2012.
