The Chicago trio volcano! mixes sweetness with disorder in its experimental rock sound. Band members Mark Cartwright, Sam Scranton and Aaron With stop by the Jim and Kay Mabie Performance Studio today to celebrate their new release, Piñata. We'll talk about the method to their melodic madness and the equally interesting lives volcano! members lead outside of their music.

The band’s new album Piñata is out today. They perform Monday June 18 at the Empty Bottle in Chicago.
