The Fever was an American indie rock band from New York City.

History[edit]

The Fever formed in 2001 around songwriting partners Geremy Jasper(vocals) and Chris Sanchez(guitar). After expanding to a five-piece, the group signed with Kemado Records, releasing their debut EP, Pink on Pink, in 2002. The full-length, Red Bedroom followed in 2003, as did touring with popular indie acts such as Hot Hot Heat, Death From Above 1979, Moving Units, VHS or Beta, Metric, and the Kills. After the departure of guitarist Sanchez, the band regrouped the remaining original members as a four-piece with Keith Stapleton switching from bass to guitar. Following the regroup was the adventurous 2006 release, In the City of Sleep,[1] but disbanded soon after in the fall of that year.[2]
