The Laureates' debut There Are No More Gentlemen was recorded with Mike Lust at Phantom Manor Recording in Chicago, December 2007 through March 2008. The songs marry the inherent hook-driven melody of The Creation and The Kinks to the drive and energy of Spoon and What Made Milwaukee Famous. The Laureates draw on 60's pop to make new sounds feel like old favorites while taking chances that leave no room for nostalgia. This 13-track release is a bold collection of melody-rich pop.
