The Roof Dogs are an art rock band from Chicago, Illinois. A traditional four-piece in composition, the band consists of Andrew Marczak on guitar and synthesizers, Sean Maher on bass guitar, Jack Brereton on the drums, and Jesse Cheshire on guitar. Andrew and Jesse split vocal duties. Musically the band draws from a variety of influences in the great canon of modern western music. Informed as much by psychedelic Americana of The Byrds as they are by the chaotic sparkle of James Chance, the band’s approach to each of its compositions is often dissonant.
Throughout the band’s tenure, the Roof Dogs have provided support for acts like shame, Mattiel, Vundabar, Richard Lloyd (of Television), and Fred Armisen to name just a few. They were featured in the soundtrack for the Tribeca Film Festival nominee “Poser” (Oscilloscope 2021). The band self-released two EPs in the late 2010s followed by a 7” on Broom Closet Records in 2020. When the pandemic hit, which canceled a lengthy east coast run, the Roof Dogs wrote and recorded their debut LP “Here You Are”, slated for release on Earth Libraries in June of 2023.
