Punk-indie band Ted Leo and the Pharmacists continue their seemingly never-ending tour, building a strong following in the process. Formed in 1999, the band served as a solo project for Ted Leo after his last band, Chisel, broke up. In 2001, Ted Leo signed to Lookout! Records and released The Tyranny of Distance, an album receiving 4.5/5 on All Music Guide. In 2006, they left their record label, and signed with Touch and Go Records. On March 20, 2007, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists released their latest album, Living with the Living. Currently, the band is on tour, and if they are not coming to your town, they will be soon.
