Fishboy is a Denton, TX indie rock band with an unhealthy love of power pop and narrative songwriting. Founded in 2001 by native Texan Eric Michener, the group has released a handful of story based albums, EPs, and seven inch records that are often accompanied with comics drawn by Michener.
In 2017 Fishboy will release Art Guards: a 31 minute album made of nine lyrically interconnected songs about artists making stuff, with varying results. Songs about a soon to be hall-of-famer ruined by his hatred of the wave (Ex-Pitcher), A fast food critic trapped in his job (Fast Foodie), An Aspiring Lighting Technician and her dad a Former Performance Artist, a relationship between a fake doctor (Actor Doctor)and a fake nurse (Researching Writer) and more come together in the album's ninth and final track (Final Frontman.) Though the synopsis may sound a bit over complicated, at their heart, the songs attempt to tackle the awkwardness and purpose behind why we create.
