Hailed as ?one of the best young bands in America,? Filligar is the rock n' roll quartet comprised of the three Mathias brothers?Johnny, Pete, and Teddy?and their lifelong friend Casey Gibson. Drawing comparisons to a ?young Rolling Stones? and called ?the next Kings of Leon,? the band gives classic rock their own unique and distinctly modern edge. They've headlined sold out shows at the nation's most acclaimed venues, toured the United Kingdom to wildly enthusiastic audiences, and recently supported both The Black Keys and My Morning Jacket.
In December 2011, the powerhouse music blog RSL named Filligar one of the top 8 live acts in the USA, along with fellow Windy City band Wilco.
