UTG PREMIERE: ENVOI – What Happened in Wyoming (Lyric Video)

Envoi March 2013

It’s been a few years since I first saw the original incarnation of Envoi in a dingy concert club on the east side of Cleveland. Back then, it was more of a post-hardcore outfit, slinging Jonny Craig inspired vibes from the Grog Shop’s stage. These days, things are far different. A fresh lineup and a new direction is carrying the band’s name to new heights. This version of Envoi is clean, able, and well prepared.

Now fronted by vocal power-house Maddie Finn, these Cleveland natives are rising phoenix-like from the ashes of their past. With local support and a quickly growing web following, Envoi are buffeting the airwaves in more venues and bedrooms than ever before and they aren’t stopping anytime soon.

On April 5 of this year, the band’s début EP will be released to the public, celebrated by a release show at the aforementioned concert club. Changes is, no doubt, reflective of the transformation as a band and individuals as well. A perfect summer jam to boot.

Today, we are premiering a single from the record called “What Happened in Wyoming.” You can listen to the song below, preorder the EP, and follow the band on Facebook.

    Rise from the ashes? All I see are a bunch of queefs who forgot where they came from.

    Its too bad she looks like Justin Beiber and sounds TERRIBLE live. I always have to walk away when they come on at a show, its quite unbearable. Oh well

    Being one of the original band members, it is strange to be less butthurt than any of these comments. They are moving forward, so are you. Good luck guys! -ian

  • I can’t wait for the release of “Changes” next month! It’s been amazing to see this group grow as individuals and musicians. Wonderful song!

    Last time I checked “I hope we can be the voice of reason in these troubling times are passing us by will you stand with me now.” doesn’t make sense.

    “These troubling times” is meant to be used on both lines. Like this:

    I hope we can be the voice of reason in
    [These troubling times]
    are passing us by.
    Will you stand with me?

    But it only gets sung once. The line’s emphasis makes it break on each side, so it can be used in both phrases. It’s actually pretty solid use of poetic structures, IMO. Band is pretty “meh” since we have 1000 of them in this scene, but they knows the market they’re trying to sell to.

  • My name is Justin Sobota. I dont want to hide behind a post. With that said, despite my dislike for one band member, Envoi is still an amazing band. Maddie kills it live. They deserve all the success coming to them. To hate on them under a name “guest” is cowardly.

  • Johnson

    There is ALOT of hating going on here, ya’ll jealous? You should be, you talentless fucks. As far as being another one of the bands that sound like every other band in this “scene”, you point out one band that has the same sound that Envoi does. I’ll wait, until then have fun pulling your dicks to animal porn in your dead mothers basement.

  • Guest

    That’s actually pretty cool. Didn’t mean to hate, sorry. Thanks.

  • Nichole

    Just because someone dislikes something doesnt make them a “hater”. That is an entirely different level. I just think she sounds horrible live, thats all. Not everyone has to like something people put out, even if they put a lot of work into it. If I dont like something I have no problem saying it and if the band puts up these posts and doesnt want honest feedback, just support/praise, well then, that isnt realistic. This isnt little league where everyone gets a trophy for participation. The music is good, the lyrics are great, I just do not like the singers voice out of studio is all.
