Infamous enjoying success


By Dan Domsic

Local metal band Infamous continues to take the stage and hits the road for a 150-band show this summer.

Comprised of Jon Iosue, Drew Johnson, Jack Rainbolt and Adam Anderson, the band will play Rockapalooza this June in Jackson, Mich.

“It’ll be our biggest show to date,” Iosue, guitarist, said.

The 14-stage festival features national acts Candlebox, Taproot, Adam Gontier, Mushroomhead and Saliva.

“We’re more excited than we are nervous,” Iosue said.

He said he thinks the band will be prepared for the show by the time the festival hits this summer.

Iosue said the band’s growth since speaking with Current in October 2012 has been larger than expected.

“It’s been bigger than a lot of us have expected in this short amount of time,” he said.

Infamous played the Murat Theater Deluxe Room in December as part of the Riley Children’s Hospital Benefit and has played in Terre Haute and Bloomington this year.

Iosue said taking the act to new cities was an eye-opening experience, as the band had a chance to see concertgoers start getting into their tunes.

They plan to travel to Muncie and Chicago this summer, as well.

With more shows and bigger crowds, more fans and more mouths are talking about the band.

Iosue said it’s been a mix of positive and negative feedback.

As the band gets more shows, it’s adding more to its repertoire, aiming at possibly recording a new EP in the fall.

They’re working on original songs now, and recently performed a cover of Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble.”
