Although originally an indie rock quartet, Stars of Track and Field went digital after losing their bassist, essentially transforming themselves into a trio with heavy electronic flourishes. The band's debut EP, You Came Here for Sunset Last Year, was released in May 2005. A full record, Centuries Before Love and War, was then scheduled for release in June 2006, but its arrival was postponed when the Portland-based band -- comprised of Kevin Calaba (vocals, guitar, keyboard), Jason Bell (guitar, vocals), and Daniel Orvik (drums, programming) -- signed a contract with Wind-Up Records, a rock-based label known for housing such big names as Creed and Evanescence. Another big break for Stars of Track and Field came when they went on tour with Jeremy Enigk of Sunny Day Real Estate in summer 2006, and Centuries Before Love and War was eventually issued digitally in August. A physical release followed in January 2007. Two years later, Stars of Track and Field found themselves exploring a different type of music, having moved past the analog/digital experiments that characterized their debut. Released in September 2009, A Time for Lions embraced more straightforward pop/rock songs. ~ Kenyon Hopkin
