Plain White T's » Biography
For over a decade, Plain White T’s have been playing to packed audiences craving for that perfect pop-punk punch. Their journey, which began in a small suburban basement playing covers, has taken the band to Warped Tour three times, and landed them opening slots for bands like Jimmy Eat World and AFI. Plain White T’s are road warriors in the truest sense and with their first major label album, Every Second Counts, the band is ready to rock in a big way.
PWT’s story started back in high school, when frontman Tom Higgenson first stepped into Chicago’s famed rock club the Metro and saw his future on the stage. With the local music scene exploding nationally courtesy of bands like Smashing Pumpkins and Veruca Salt, he decided the time was ripe for his own dreams to be realized. Armed with paper, pen, and guitar, Tom went to task, experimenting with lyrics and melodies on a four-track in his parents’ Villa Park, Illinois home. Once he’d reached a level of comfort with his songwriting, he worked up the courage to hand off a tape to Christian Lane, singer of 90’s buzz band Loud Lucy, and to his surprise, Christian actually listened to it.
