Fruit Bats: Sweetly Flavored Folk-Pop

Cheery melodies, colorful lyrics and acoustic arrangements have earned the folk-rock band Fruit Bats favorable comparisons to Modest Mouse and The Shins. Led by guitarist, pianist and singer Eric Johnson, Fruit Bats' members have developed a reputation for forward-thinking music.

Formed in 1999 as a side project for Johnson, Fruit Bats soon became his main focus after the release of the band's debut, Echolocation. With the release of The Ruminant Band, the group carries on its tradition of bright, observant acoustic music.
