Coming out of Ohio, the rock band Guided by Voices began their career in 1983. Having released fifteen albums, four compilations, and a live album, they have also been featured on several soundtracks for movies such as "Beer League" and "Brain Candy." Throughout their career they have toured the U.S. and played concerts with bands such as R.E.M. and The Breeders. They hit number six on the Billboard U.S. Independent Albums with Isolation Drills.
The group went on hiatus in 2004, but reunited in 2010 with plans for a U.S. tour in celebration of their 21st year.
