Re-envisioning what pop can be in the 21st century, AJR unassumingly emerged as a ubiquitous hit-making outlier and one of the biggest indie bands in the world. Since 2012, the award-winning indie pop trio - Adam [bass, vocals], Jack [vocals, guitar], and Ryan [ukulele, piano, vocals] - have generated billions of streams and earned one triple-platinum single, one double-platinum single, four platinum singles, and one platinum album. Their 2020 platinum blockbuster 'BANG!' marked their first Top 10 entry on Billboard Hot 100 and earned the band their 1st Billboard Music Award for 'Best Rock Song' in 2021.
2019 album 'Neotheater' marked their biggest first week debut, bowing at #8 on the Billboard Top 200, #1 on the Top Alternative Albums Chart, and #1 on the Top Rock Albums Chart. Cemented as part of the modern zeitgeist, Spotify touted 'Sober Up' [feat. Rivers Cuomo] among the 'Best Rock Songs of the 2010s', while Apple Music included 'Weak' on its 'Best Alt Songs of the 2010s'. Not to mention, they remain one of the "500 Most-Listened to Artists" on Spotify.
