Look What I Did is an American post-hardcore band, formed in 2001 in Nashville, Tennessee, USA. The music combines elements of jazz/fusion, hardcore, metal, and progressive pop punk.[citation needed] The band is known for its intense live show, described by Cincinnati CityBeat as a "live act capable of unleashing a scary, uncontrolled intensity bordering on dangerous," and oft-satirical eccentric lyrics.[1]

History[edit]

Look What I Did was formed in 2001 in Nashville, Tennessee by singer, Barry Donegan and guitarist, Colby Shea. Miles McPherson (drums, currently drumming for Kelly Clarkson) and Chris Bradley (bass) were added before the band's first public live performance in January 2002.

In 2003, the band added a second guitar player, Aaron "Skeet" Childress, formerly of National Green, and relocated to Los Angeles, California. At this time they also released their first recording, an independently recorded, financed, and released LP, My First Time, on their own Clockrock Recordings. Despite its limited pressing, the record received many features from ezines such as theprp.com,[2] loudside.com,[3] Opuszine.com.[4] Miles McPherson was not able to join the band in L.A., and Eli Green, now of HORSE the band filled in for some time. McPherson returned to the group in 2004.

In 2005, newly reformed Combat Records and producer, Brian Virtue (Jane's Addiction, TheStart) worked with the band to release Minuteman for the Moment on October 4, 2005. The band then relocated to Nashville, TN, and began heavy national touring with bands such as Ion Dissonance, Animosity, At All Cost, Dog Fashion Disco, Tub Ring and The Classic Struggle, Drop Dead, Gorgeous, Folly, and The Human Abstract.

In October 2006, Jake Omen (drums, ex Year of Desolation) and Ty Coughlin (bass, ex L.A.O.) joined the band, replacing McPherson and Shea. Chris Bradley took over the duties on guitar.

In early 2008 the band signed a deal with new label Modernist Movement. The album Atlas Drugged was released on February 9, 2010 via Modernist Movement Recordings.[5] Atlas Drugged was also produced by Brian Virtue. Decibel magazine referred to the band in a review of Atlas Drugged, "Look What I Did crush on political philosophers, put Latin words in their song titles and generally get off on being a bunch of wiseasses to spazzed-out Adderall punk."[6]

In 2013, Look What I Did began revealing songs set to be released on their upcoming rock opera: "Zanzibar III: Analog Prison". The songs listed so far are entitled: "Brigham Young and David Koresh Rally the Troops on the Moon", "The Trial", "Sebastian's Analog Prison", "David Koresh Has a Message (For You)" and "Wait, Don't Jump".

The album was given an unofficial release in July on 2014 in the form of a full streaming version on 'So Say We All Records' bandcamp page, with a full proposed release date of November 2014.
